Things have been busy over here in Roxanne land. I spend the weekend in Cleveland with my family for Chanukah (we ate, we sang, we played) and I’m headed home for a week until our trip to Munich.

I’m currently sitting on the Megabus on my way from Cleveland back to Chicago. I wish I could say it was going all well and dandy, except I had a reaction to some food and I’m not feeling too great. There’s really nothing worse than being stuck on a bus when you may or may not need a toilet. Sorry for the TMI, but I know everyone can relate.
Dan couldn’t come on this trip back to Cleveland, so I’m by myself. It turns out he is traveling for work this week and leaving a few hours before I get home 🙁 so I won’t see him until Thursday. Such a bummer!
If you have a significant other that travels a lot, how do you cope being alone? I typically schedule myself silly with errands and dates with friends, but being in a new city is hard because I don’t have too many besties and I don’t want to over-impose on my new friends. It is nice to have Jake and Elwood (my kitties) around too.
Anyway: this outfit is such a fave of mine! It was the first outfit I shot at Speedblogging at the Gwen hotel in Chicago. It is such a great concept created by my friend Mindy! From 9-12, about 12 bloggers and 6 photographers got together at the hotel where we had 2 rooms to change in. We all rotated with 10 minutes per photographer and got to shoot 6 outfits total at 6 different locations, all for $125. It helped me create all my outfit content in just one morning! And I got to meet and hang out with some really cool people. If you’re in Chicago and want to join, check out the Speedblogging Instagram or email me for info. And if you’re in another city, definitely consider this model!
Windowpaneprint is such a great neutral. I picked out this jacket from Shein (my friend Rachael has it in black; see how she styled it here). It doesn’t come with a belt so I wore it open! Sometimes the simplest outfits are the chicest, and it just takes one piece to make it shine.

My favorite look from last week’s link up is Christine from Bon Chic Style!
Christine is a friend from DC, and is known for posting her tips on looking French chic! She is French, after all! She styled this gorgeous metallic skirt two ways in her post. Go ahead and check out her other look, too!
I know I always comment back on all the link-ups, but last week was absolutely nuts for me. I read all your comments and appreciate the love and support! I promise I’ll get back to responding soon.
