On Repeat: Little Lace Dress

Remember this little lace dress I wore on the blog a few weeks ago? I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve worn it since. I wore this exact outfit I’m wearing here (with loafers and a moto jacket) once in London for the play, in Paris for dinner with Meghan, and again when I got back to Chicago for a day of meetings. I styled it with a denim jacket and lace-up heels for a date last weekend, too. So versatile! (Dude approved, fyi.) I wish I had it in multiple colors. I’m so bummed it’s sold out, but I did find a few similar silhouettes. As you might be able to tell, though… I somehow shrank the lining underneath in the wash. (#domesticJess) So it’s now pretty much reserved for flats only unless it’s a Saturday night out.

On a Kiehl’s Kick

This post is long overdue! Last September when I was in London, I popped into Kiehl’s in the Seven Dials area (one of my faves!) and had a proper skincare consultation with the sweetest woman who actually happens to be the employee with the longest tenure at Kiehl’s in Europe… nbd. (This wasn’t the VIP treatment, btw… Just ask for Gillian at the store! She still works there.. I just saw her again a few weeks ago when I was in London in April!) I’ve always had a few Kiehl’s products in my medicine cabinet, but I’ve been on an even bigger Kiehl’s kick for the last 7-8 months. (I think Gillian is in her 50’s or 60’s but her skin looks better than mine, so naturally, I’m all ears to whatever she has to say!) Her #1 tip? Vitamin C.

Pink + Palm Print

I’m headed back to Mexico today and figured it was the perfect time to share one last outfit from my trip to Cabo a few months ago! Pairing pink with palm print always reminds me of Palm Beach or the Beverly Hills Hotel and has such a way of putting my in that vacay state of mind. I wore this skirt a few times while I was at the Paradisus in Cabo… You can see the other two outfits in this post!

Summer Dresses: Now & Later

And just like that… We’re back to turtleneck weather in May. Womp, womp. It’s one freezing Friday in Chicago today… 41 degrees and raining. At least it makes staying inside and working a whole lot easier?

One of my favorite (and easiest!) ways to transition my summer dresses (both in the spring and the fall) is to layer a tissue-thin turtleneck underneath! I got this gingham dress last summer at Modcloth and I could have sworn I styled in on the blog, but I guess I never did. Kind of surprising for how much I wore it!
