Local look: Langford Market
621 W. Diversey Ave. 773-880-3191

From sweeping skirts to feminine patterned dresses, Langford Market is geared toward ladies looking for comfortable clothes with personality. This Texas-based store is already making waves in Chicago with two new north side stores that opened last year. I visited their Diversey store in Lincoln Park, which boasts colorful clothes, handbags and unique accessories for ladies looking for a fashion-forward outfit.

With the changing season in mind, I chose a knockout khaki hunting jacket (Maude, $99.90) with leather elbow patches and a plaid hood to anchor my look. Then I slipped into some of the most comfortable jeans ever (Boom Boom, $69.90)--like seriously ever--and added a silky striped navy-and-white top and basic camisole (Maude, $44.90; $14.90) underneath. I chose accessories that would complement the jacket: an incredible deer bust choker (Maude, $19.90), oversized camel handbag (Urban Expressions, $79.90) and finished with chunky gold ring (Maude, $19.90) for some sparkle. It all paired perfectly with a pair of my own ankle boots.

Where to wear it: Ditch the jacket when the temperature spikes or add a knit scarf when it drops, which is generally the next day; if Chicago weather has taught me anything, it's that layering is an absolute must. Take this look for a spin during afternoon shopping or Sunday brunching.

TIPS
>>When pulling together a look, I focus in one item and then build the outfit from there.
>>A neutral-colored handbag will be your go-to accessory year-round.

    Not every ride's the Willard's Whizzer. That iconic coaster debuted in 1976 when Marriott's Great America, now Six Flags Great America, in Gurnee, Ill., first opened. And it's still popular today. But for every Whizzer there's a Tidal Wave, Shockwave or Z-Force, rides existing only in memory.

    Five years ago, denim-on-denim defied all of the dire warnings in the "Undateable" handbook: Instead of evoking John Denver or Britney Spears in her misstyled youth, chambray shirts paired with darker blue jeans became as cool as actor Johnny Depp and street-style heroine Alexa Chung.
