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!

Friday Finds || Week 20

Man oh man, this week felt like it was months long! TGIF. After a good friend’s birthday party on Saturday night, I headed home to see my family on Sunday morning. I actually stayed a few days longer than I had planned because it felt so nice to be out of the city for a little bit. I always say how I could never live in such a small town like where I grew up, and while that’s definitely still true, this was the first time in a long time where I truly appreciated the slower pace and simpler lifestyle. When I got back to Chicago on Tuesday night, I had to hit the ground running for various work projects… This week consisted of lots of coffee and very little sleep. I’m so ready for the weekend! I’m actually headed out of the country on Monday morning (for work, but it will still be fun!) so I have a fairly long to-do list over the next two days, but hopefully I can find a bit of a balance. Hope you’ve got fun plans! Here are this week’s finds…
