Friday Finds || Week 39

Happy Friday! This week flew by, but it was a b-u-s-y one. A quick trip to LA, Ashley in town visiting this week, a few work events, and a whole lot of work in between… I’m ready for ya, Friday. I’m actually kicking off the weekend a little bit early this week… Hallie and I are playing hooky this afternoon and heading up to the Cubs game! I haven’t been to Wrigley Field since the home opener earlier this year and Hallie hasn’t been to a game yet this season, so we figured the last Friday afternoon game of the regular season was as good of an excuse as any.

Well, you guys, I’ve had this post scheduled for the past few weeks and I keep pushing the date back, thinking that it will start feeling like fall one of these days.

I’m all for the slew of regular silky blouses lining our closets, but the tie-waist with a wrap style only helps to accentuate your waist and actually makes you look smaller. I’ll take it!

With the Band

Military-inspired band jackets with a healthy dose of button-detailing are definitely trending right now! I picked up this velvet blazer at Nordstrom a while back (it’s still available — and 60% off!) because it reminded me of this Saint Laurent jacket and have been patiently waiting to pull it out of my closet ever since. We’re having a bit of endless summer here in Chicago, so on a ‘cooler’ day (read: in the 70’s instead of 80’s), I styled it with a little lace tank and my favorite white jeans.

The Very Best White Jeans

I’ve mentioned these white jeans here and there over the last few weeks, but as I was placing an order for two more pairs online last week, I realized that they needed their own dedicated post. (And just so we’re clear, this post is in no way sponsored. They’re just *that* good, trust.)
