ABOUT THE BLOG
Welcome to Out & About! I’m Katy, and I’m a Technology Consultant in my mid-twenties living in Chicago. I started this blog in the winter of 2017 to use as a virtual journey for my life, and a creative outlet for my love of all things fashion, beauty, and travel.
WHAT I LOVE TO DO
On the weekends, you will find me doing one of a handful of things – having a glass of champagne, at brunch with friends, shopping, or curled up with a book. I’ve also recently taken up a baking/cookie decorating hobby – check out my Instagram for some of my creations!
WHERE I LOVE TO SHOP
I’m a self-proclaimed Nordstrom addict, and do 80% of my shopping there (including a majority of my beauty products). I also frequent Topshop and Revolve.
WHERE I SPLURGE
Bags – a classic bag is an investment you won’t regret!
Primer & Foundation – there is no substitute for a quality base.
WHERE I SAVE
Shoes – a walking city has not been kind to my shoe closet, so I’ve learned that dupes are the way to go!
Mascara – I am a makeup junkie, but always gravitate towards my drugstore mascaras.
WHAT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT
Coffee, anything with cheese, and a new nude lipstick.
