Chicago is a city full of innovative style. I can't tell you how many times I've done a double take on the street because of what someone was wearing.
So for this post, I stopped to take pictures of some people whose ensembles I couldn't avoid checking out...
I was drawn to the look Jena was sporting before even looking up to see who was wearing it. After a second, I realized that she's the mind behind Chi City Fashion, a prominent Chicago blog(ger) that you should certainly be following.I'm a sucker for neutral ensembles which Is why I initially stopped Jena, but when I noticed the pink trainers I was absolutely sold.
I was drawn to Stan because of his leather jacket. I've been wanting a new one myself so I suppose you could call it envy. He also had a killer gold lion ring which, unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take a picture of but I promise...it was great.
You might recognize Alex from our last post. I saw him when I had walked into Vans, after work, for their college open mic. Lex was performing and looking so cool in his new Buzz Lightyear Vans. What I love about his style is that he has an eye for finding really interesting pieces that I, personally, don't think would work and then he pulls it off perfectly.

If there was one headlining takeaway for me from my time away, it's that my focus requires just as much thought, intentionality, machinery and precision as anything else that I craft. I learned that focus isn't fleeting, it's the result of a considerable amount of preparation and care.
How empowering it is to consider that I am only a victim to my feelings if I decide to be.
What have I decided to be or do today? tomorrow? the next day? in light of where I am going.
What have you decided?
The last few seasons, I have put my all into every endeavor I could dream of or join in to. And while some were fruitful, most failed and failed hard. So there is also the element of learning to trust myself and keep trusting myself. There are many more failures to come. How do I know? Because I'm overflowing with ideas! Thus, beauty of PROCESS!
