Friday Five

Friday Five

It’s Friday! And ready or not, the holidays are officially here… Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and lots to be thankful for this year. In celebration of this epic shopping day, Sara and I thought we’d point out some bloggers that have the skill of shopping down to a T. You can picture us today at 7am starting our quest for the perfect gifts and finds. By noon, we will be sipping champagne hopefully clinking next to bags full. Sara and I are just getting started with our fashion blog, Haute Like Her. We are new at this and have really looked up to our fellow Windy City bloggers for guidance. We started on Instagram and are learning to build our blog as we go. Stay tuned for more from us soon as we figure out what we are doing in this crazy but intoxicating world of blogging. Happy Holidays everyone from the two of us!

Katie Cassman



Katie’s blog gives us a little bit of everything from fashion all the way to LOMO versus FOMO in her latest post which is really cute. She describes herself as having a slight online shopping addiction which we can relate to especially as this Windy City gets colder.  She really nailed it with this skirt! I have been on the hunt for the right version for a while and she paired it with simple black to make an effortlessly chic outfit.


Friday Five


Marija has an amazing city chic style that we just can’t live without.  Her tagline “where sports meets fashion” is something different than the usual blogger. She takes us around the worlds with her amazing photo diaries from Africa to Paris and of course giving us style tips along the way. This leather and lace combination had us dying from the start. Sara has her leather jacket, but I have yet to decide on the one that gets to grace my closet with its presence just yet. We had to choose this shot because I mean common, her back is amazing in it of itself!

Wayfaring Rachel

Friday Five

Rachel’s blog is a wonderful mix of fashion, travel, and food. With a love for her city, she takes us to her favorite places in Chicago with a fresh spin on things. We just had to stop and drool at these beauties she posted the other day! A perfect holiday party accouterment to get you in the spirit. And yes her gift guide is already up on her blog too!

The Suburbanista


Leah Bowens of The Suburbanista, really has the fall wardrobe thing down. Her blog is based out of the Chicago burbs and is filled with different wearable looks.  We have to point out her amazing leather jacket… did we mention we’re obsessed with leather yet? This color is a must have for the past few fall seasons. Some call it burgundy, merlot, maroon; we say who cares what you call it, we’re still just as in love with it as we were last year. Leah pairs it with several different looks including with her Black Friday shopping post seen here. Besides, we have massive hair envy going on… from the braids to the top notch top knots she sports, she can’t get it wrong.

The Sicilian Swede

Friday Five

Anika from The Sicilian Swede has a serious affinity for shoes and denim which we can relate to. Her fun and playful shots of fashion are always on point. Of course, her recent post on how to wear all black was right up our alley and worth a feature here for sure! Let’s skip right past the leather because we could’ve just named this post “our obsession with leather…” Her chic city style is something to lust after and this shot over a favorite spot in Chicago.

Thanks for the inspo ladies! Always excited to see what’s coming up next from everyone and we hope you will check us out too. Happy shopping everyone!
