Today it appears the the weather is trying to take a turn for the better after a brief cold spell. I think we have been spoiled with our recent 70-80 degree days here in Chicago. I am itching to wear some dresses and  not be so bundled up. Let the toes air out...Yay!!! Soooo very soon... Happy Hump day!

Ann Taylor

Happy Saturday! Yesterday evening i had the privilege of being outfitted by Ann Taylor for their exclusive pre party opening for their concept store on Michigan Ave in Chicago. I was their to speak on behalf of the STEP Up organization which helps teen girls from the inner city gain self esteem and help them become college bound and career ready. It was such a moving night. The young lady i mentor is pictured here. Andrew Taylor was there to kick off the opening of the store and reintroduce the young vibe that they are showing the world. Great cause...Great night!!! Vibrant color blocking is the theme of the spring season!
