Rosé All Day

It’s National Wine Day, did you know? A holiday that I can definitely get behind as we come into Memorial Day Weekend! I’m not much of a white wine drinker and while I love a glass of red wine (or two…) in the colder months, we all know I’m a rosé girl. Remember that summer that the Hamptons was drank out of rosé, like, two years ago? Just so happened to be the summer that I spent a lot of weekends there. The number of people that sent me that article was kind of impressive and also alarming…

Rainy Morning at the Farmers Market

April showers bring May flowers, but the rain definitely didn’t stop once May rolled around. It’s been a bit of a wet month here in Chicago, and unfortunately it seems like there are a lot of storms ahead before we finally settle into summer. Hunters on repeat!

There are crepes, breakfast pizzas, and more to satisfy any and all breakfast cravings, but I love picking up some produce for the week, as well as some fresh flowers.

I swapped last week’s denim vest for this tweed jacket and I can’t get over how different the outfits are. (See last week’s here!) Isn’t it wild? I simply tucked in the shirt and swapped out my layering piece, but the tee shirt, jeans, heels, and handbag are all the same.

This tweed jacket from my spring collection is one of my favorites! It pairs so perfect with with white jeans (or jean shorts!), and works in the office, too.

Beauty Buff // Vol. 2: Eyebrows

In my first official Beauty Buff installment a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to do a Q&A with the infamous ‘Cheryl.’ If you follow along on Snapchat, you’ve probably seen me gushing after my eyebrow shaping appointments with her.  So let’s talk all things eyebrows, shall we?

One of the first things Cheryl told me (and showed me!) was that she could change the shape of my face by changing my eyebrows. Say what?! I probably rolled my eyes and thought, “Sure you can, lady.” But honestly, after one visit, I was hooked.
