Chicago is currently experiencing a bit of a phenomenon. I’ll call it summer in March. In this lovely midwestern city, we rarely experience spring weather in March, let alone 70+ degree temperatures. It’s weird. Don’t misconstrue that as a complaint. If I could dropkick winter in the face and send it packing, I’d do so […]

Fun fact of the day about me: I struggle with taking compliments.  Sometimes I stutter. Other times I say “thanks” ridiculously fast and change the subject. And then there are the times that I feel the need to reciprocate the compliment immediately and it comes out all wrong.  Like the time my highschool boyfriend told […]


WAIT! Before you go and I lose all of my music cred, I want to clear a few things up. Yes, you should still give me the time of day and no, I haven’t lost my mind. Let’s start with some sure to be frequently asked questions. Do you find this song choice and post […]


A couple weeks ago, I introduced a new feature for HauteThought: Style Inspiration of the Month. To jump start the feature and welcome spring, I started with Kate Spade, a designer who isn’t afraid to use color to create classically timeless pieces. I also made it clear that I am not the type of person […]


Today’s song of the day doesn’t need a long, drawn out explanation. I grew up in a tight knit neighborhood. Groups of us would get together for late night games of kick the can while our parents, who are still friends, would chat for hours. We’d spend countless hours at Orchardbrook pool playing lemonade and […]


Today was a day where I truly became a zombie.  A productive zombie, but a zombie nonetheless.  I’m talking the eyes glazed over, performing the same motions, hardly moving, few words, type of zombie.  It was the opposite of a sensory overload.  When my zombie brain couldn’t take it anymore, it became imperative that I […]


I need to make a very big statement before I start drooling over Kate Spade. Call it a preface. I, Annie, am not the type of person who buys designer clothes for the status of it. In fact, you will rarely find me wearing something with a fancy label or an item that cost me […]


Three years ago, on March 24, 2009, HauteThought was born. I touted it as a music and fashion (and American Idol) blog from the beginning and was determined to stick to these topics. It was an accurate representation of the pop culture I paid the most attention to and I figured I’d be able to […]


As you all can tell, the Plot Your Escape event did, in fact, turn out to be real. I may have been the only one on the face of the Earth who was worried about a possible scam, but to me…no info on the internet can be a deal breaker. The internet knows all and […]


As excited as I am for this Plot Your Escape concert, I have a few fears…mainly because there is practically zero information about it online. I could Google for hours and come back with nothing more than a time, location and pile of tweets from people asking how to get tickets. However, I did meander […]
