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

Spring Stripes & Peonies

It’s the first *official* day of spring and I couldn’t be more excited! It was snowing last week and Chicago and it definitely won’t feel like spring for quite a few more weeks, but we’re making progress people. I’m so ready for bright blooms, lighter layers, longer days, and more sunshine!

Green (on Wells in Old Town) is one of my favorite flower stops in Chicago… I got these giant, vibrant peonies last spring and I can’t wait to see what they get in this year!
