I'm back in Chicago for Thanksgiving break.  Where's the first place I go to eat? Chipotle.  I am a hardcore fanatic, and the fact that I chose a school that has no Chipotle amazes me.  It's good to be back with the other half of The American Swede, to be able to brainstorm and collaborate together.  I love talking different styles with my brother.  

A current trend this season is the monochromatic.  Celebrities and fashion magazines all agree that one color is a hit.  The key is to pick shades of a single color and put them together. An outfit of the exact same color is not the goal. The shades allow for a unified yet textured look.

Today, I took my favorite 'black out' style out into the white of winter.  To make this look my own I added a red scarf to give it that added pop of color.
