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.

I saw floral fashion attire left and right this past weekend, and not going to lie but I am all about it. Bill and I took a day trip up to Holland, Michigan to check out the Tulip Time Festival and had a great time. It’s about 3 hours away from Chicago, and let me just say I have never seen a city so on fire for something as simple as a tulip. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it, but this town lives for the two weekends the tulips are in full bloom. From its parades, tulip art, to tulips in every storefront window, these two weekends are like our fourth of July. Such excitement!
I knew right away I was going to wear a floral arrangement (so basic, I admit…) BUT when I saw this romper with a skirt overlay at Francesca’s I was so excited to wear it out with a cute bralette underneath and my red Target sandals. I am embracing the warm weather and vibrant colors because we have waited too long for these moments!
If you ever want to take a day trip to Holland, MI, I would recommend grabbing a bite at Butch’s, apple cider donuts from Crane’s, walking around Window on the Waterfront, and stopping by the 205 Coffee bar for a latte and cute photos. I really had a great time ooh-ing and aah-ing over the array of tulip colors, and we couldn’t have asked for a better weekend to be outside! Shots from my trip are below. Dare I ask what your favorite flower is? I bet you can guess mine.

We made it to Friday! I am so excited for a few adventures coming up in the next few weeks, so thanks for following along :). I will give you a hint of what my upcoming adventures include: an ocean, flowers, and more flowers. Oh yes. As you can tell I have been on the floral fashion train because I cannot stop talking about them. I found my top on sale from Anthropologie and I thought it was perfect to wear in the city because it is long sleeved but still bright and cheery (writing this as I wore all black today…). I paired it with my jeans from Zara that are so comfy (and they are high rise!) and my bright pink M. Gemi flats. Anthro usually has a few great pieces on sale when I check out their site or in store (and make sure to grab some Voluspa candles while you’re at it) so make sure to take a peek.
I hope you enjoy your time with family and friends this weekend for Easter! And don’t stay at work too late today.. Happy Friday!

If there was ever a true “super” model, it would be Karlie Kloss. Somehow, she found time to collaborate on a collection of sunglasses with Warby Parker. The shapes and styles are mod with a modern twist.
What makes these cool-girl shades even better? A portion of the proceeds goes to Edible Schoolyard NYC, which works with low-income NYC public schools to build kitchens and gardens where they teach students to develop lifelong healthy habits.
Fashion with a great cause backing it up? Another reason to love Kloss even more.

Summer is all about running around outside, laying on the beach, and the carefree look that goes along with that. These days have been on my brain while I have been stuck inside due to Chiberia. Another thing I’m looking forward to? Buying new sunglasses. I’ve been stalking sites recently for a fun, new, pair of sunnies for Spring Break in a few weeks, and Warby Parker has solved my crisis. I long for the day that I can throw on a romper, flip flops, and actually need to toss sunglasses..but at this point, who isn’t?

This look can be applied to Chiberia. The knit beanie and over-sized shades keep this look cool and clean, while the giant fur collar ads a dash of glam (and warmth.)
