Spring & Summer Must: The Striped Dress

I’ve been on the hunt for spring and summer dresses over the last few weeks and I’ve been buying them left and right, hoping the forecast follows suit. I seem to live in jeans all winter long so when warmer weather rolls around, I’m all about the dresses! Skirts, too, but nothing beats a feminine or flirty dress. I really didn’t wear that many dresses with tights this winter and I truly think it comes down to me being the BIGGEST baby when it comes to being cold. Honestly, if I could change one thing about my body, I really think it would be my tolerance for cold temps. LOL On second thought, that’s actually a complete lie, but wouldn’t that be such a game changer?!

Leather Loafers from Mexico

I put on this casual combo for an alfresco work date last Friday. The weather was unbelievably nice for a few hours… In the 70’s! It felt like a such a treat to put on a breezy topripped jeans, and a pair of colorful loafers. I posted a photo on Snapchat and go so many questions about these leather loafers, so I figured I should try to find something similar. I picked these up in downtown San Jose del Cabo at a random shop on the main street in town, so sadly I wasn’t able to track down this exact pair. Next time you’re in Mexico, definitely try to find a pair for yourself… I bought two pairs and was able to negotiate both of them for $70! I did find a few similar options, though! Here are some of my favorite finds…

Friday Finds || Week 12

Just me, or was this a crazy week?! Crazy in a really fun way, though! Even though it’s freezing, it seems like everyone has a little bit of spring fever… I was out and about pretty much the entire week. On Wednesday night, my friends at The Everygirl had their five-year anniversary party and I got to catch up with so many of my favorite ladies in the city. I grabbed drinks with my friend Ali on Thursday night and also got to sample Olive Garden’s new lower calorie menu at a fun space in the West Loop. I’ve got a work date today at Soho House, drinks tonight for a friend’s going away party, and celebrating another friend’s birthday tomorrow. Sunday will be a day of rest, let me tell ya!

Palm Print Skirt: Day to Night

There’s no better feeling that getting a little extra bang for your buck! For me, the same feeling applies to traveling when you’re living out of your suitcase. You can’t beat an outfit that’s super versatile and is easily transitioned from day to night with a few simple accessory swaps!

A chic straw tote and a boater hat for day, and a pair of statement earrings with a little black & gold bag for evening! For lunch, I went with a flat bow slide and for dinner, I switched into a more strappy, lace-up pair.

Camel & Cream

You guys, what happened?! Just when we thought spring was around the corner, it felt like a whopping 18 degrees this morning when I left for a meeting. I guess I can’t complain, though… The forecast says a high of 71 on Friday! Whattttt? I honestly thought I read it wrong when I first saw it… I can never keep up with the weather here.
