Palm Springs Fashion

Success! I actually got a bit of color from my vacation and didn’t get burned!  It was so nice being able to relax and have more than one lazy day by the pool. Not to mention yummy coffee, cocktails and more. I wanted to do a quick round up of a few of the outfits I wore while I was in Palm Springs, and it’s making me more and more excited for summer time in Chicago as I type!

Does anyone have a few travel adventures planned in the coming weeks?! I am getting excited to see my girl Ella (MOD MED BLOG) in Birmingham, Alabama in later August! But I am sticking around Chicago for a bit and enjoying all that it has to offer.

Pretty in Pink: Wedding Season Fashion

Dress: Topshop *On sale!* // Shoes: Charles Jourdan // Earrings in PINK: Bauble Bar // Clutch in BLACK: Nordstrom (not pictured but cute to go with!)

‘Tis the season for weddings and there isn’t anything better than celebrating a forever love over a glass of bubbly. I had the most wonderful time celebrating a friend’s marriage in sunny Orange County, California. My dear friend has nothing short of great taste, so I knew it would be stunning. The venue was at the Monarch Beach Resort and if you ever have a chance to stay there, I would highly recommend. Ocean views and amazing hotel amenities? For those who are stuck in this chilly Spring gloom, I will leave it at that.

My favorite color has always been pink and I love that it is a popular color. I hopped around Nordstrom and luckily found most of my outfit in one place except my shoes from Nordstrom Rack (Nordies clearly has my heart…). I kept it simple finding a pair of tassel earrings I could wear with a messy up-do, and black heels to compliment the black bow in the back of my dress. The up-do was in part that I didn’t want to overheat in the sunshine and I wanted to show off the cute little bow. To top it all off, I was feeling fabulous with my lashes done by Amazing Lash Studio Chicago in Streeterville. I love this dress so much I might sport it for the Kentucky Derby with a black hat and black gloves… thoughts on it being cute or more so aspiring to be Audrey Hepburn? 😉

I hope you get to go to a wedding and celebrate love soon, too! <3

White Out

As I’ve discussed in recent posts, I love to eat. Brunch, lunch, dinner, you name it…exploring new restaurants is one of my hobbies. Sometimes, fashion and food go hand in hand. I cannot think of many things better than putting on a killer outfit and grabbing dinner with a group of my best girlfriends. One of the places I’ve been meaning to try? The Village Tap over in Roscoe Village. Their small bites are killer, with plentiful drink options to chat over. I’ll be heading there for an outdoor brunch when mother nature decides to stop being difficult. While this really cannot get any better, Spring Rewards is excited to announce its first ever countdown to and celebration for spring! If you’re as eager for spring as we are, join Spring Rewards for the inside scoop and special offers. This includes a $20 giftcard to the Village Tap.

Another reason I cannot wait for Spring? White is a hot color trend right now, and we’ve seen it prancing around the spring shoots in a monochromatic style. Try wearing white head to toe, or add pops of color to make a statement. Who else is ready for #SpringinCHi?
