Blackbird (See Jane Wear)

Zara top, J Brand jeans, Topshop necklace + shoes, Marc Jacobs bag, Maya Brenner initial necklace (c/o), Karen Walker sunglasses, Maybelline 'Coral Crush" lipstick, ButterLondon "Teddy Girl" nail polish
On Friday, Eric and I went to Blackbird, a restaurant here in Chicago known for its innovative food and sleek interiors.  I'm all about dressing for the occasion so I paired a no-fuss, peplum top with simple, ultra-dark denim.  Blackbird showcases a very modern and mostly white interior with dark accents; I felt as if I had been plucked straight from the interior!  Now, speaking of coordinated dressing, what should I wear to the aquarium with my nephews next weekend?  Probably aqua socks.

  5. Are the Topshop shoes comfortable? Those are adorable but I've heard they're kind of painful!

  29. The speaking advertisement you have put on your blog is beyond annoying. I have NEVER seen any other blog that does this. Sadly, I won't visit again because of this need for $$.

  33. hi @Caitlin - the TopShop shoes are a bit uncomfortable. They're definitely not dancing shoes but I can handle going out for a bit in them!
    hi @erika - the top is recent! Just bought it last week.
    hi @anon - care to tell me what advertisement you speak of? I only have two and am not aware of any that use sound. thanks.
