I advise you to stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they’re your parents. Because, if you’re the kind of person who senses there’s something out there for you beyond whatever it is you’re expected to do - if you want to be EXTRA-ordinary - you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you’re not extraordinary. Instead, you will probably become as ordinary as they expect you to be.
Move over colored denim, metallic hues are making their way into our closest for Fall. Although shades of metallic have been on our radar the past few seasons, they are making their debut in denim.

Nevena Borissova’s home was recently featured on the Coveteur and we had to share these inspiring photos. From her jewelry organization to the refinished armoire that holds her shoes, we love how creative people can get when housing some of their favorite daily items.

Hey, all! We’re Julie and Lauren from Born and Bread. With half of our duo born and raised in Chicago, we felt an instant connection with the adorable group of ladies behind The Girls of Lincoln Park and are thrilled to be sharing one of our favorite looks for summer with you today.
We all have an LBD in our closet, but over here at B&B we’re all about personal style with an ‘everygirl’ tist. No need to keep it so serious, right? That’s why we’re loving the look of these easy-breezy, little white dresses to get us through the rest of this season in style.
From feminine and frilly to sexy and sheer, the LWD does just the trick for those steamy summer nights, don’t you agree? For more of our personal picks for the essential LWD, be sure to shop our store here. Thanks for having us over, girls! Xo - Julie and Lauren
