The quaint brick exterior & lush floral gardens of the Maze Library in Oak Park provide a perfect back drop for our "Weekend Getaway." Whether a day trip antiquing to nearby Michigan City, or hopping on a plane for a two night excursion, check out our list of packable must-haves.

On Sara, we paired an essential chambray 'work shirt' with leopard patterned red skinny jeans, and a short tan boot.

All manner of prints are on trend this fall. It's easy to mix geometrics, florals, polka dots and stripes when you use a grounding color to tie everything together. As we did here with Sara, pairing a southwest motif sweater with a perfect ensemble for exploring.

Corine wears a floral dress in green tones, a big color trend for fall. For a daytime look, jean leggings were donned with a cool leather trimmed, Italian trench coat. Quirky details are the stars here. When fun two-toned Mary Jane pumps are added, she is ready for dinner out.

Another seasonal shift are structured handbags. An over-the-shoulder strap brings comfort together with stylish color blocking.

A striking combination of bold hues and abstract prints blended with the right accessories are an expert mix of the seasons most versatile trends.

Juliana sports a 50's inspired day dress, in graphic printed, vibrant orange - continuing to enjoy its status as the 'It' color. The wrap dress never fails to look good on every body type, and can become instantly cool when mixed with a hint of toughness, under a cotton motorcycle jacket. This eye catching over-sized silver jewelry completes the look.
