My Go-To Coffee Order + New Favorite Dress

Before we get started with this dress and my favorite coffee shop, let me first apologize for there not being a What I Wore Last Week post today. I know that’s been a favorite for some of you, and the perfectionist in me hates to have to skip a week. Last week was a DOOZY in more ways than one… I barely got dressed some days (do workout clothes count?) and on the days where I did have to get myself looking presentable, I was too preoccupied to remember to snap photos. My niece and sister-in-law were staying with me this weekend and I took approximately 200 photos of them, but didn’t get many with me included. Instead of having a weekly recap with two photos, I’ll add those to next week’s post instead!

Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 27

What. A. Week. With the holiday being on a Wednesday this week, I’m all sorts of thrown off. I didn’t do much for July 4th this year, but I’m okay with it.

I went out to Parson’s with some friends on Tuesday night, but ended up working all afternoon on the actual Fourth, prepping for a call I had yesterday morning. Womp, womp.

Red & White Stripes

How is July 4th tomorrow?! I guess since the weather has been so wishy washy so far, it just hasn’t really felt like summer yet. Do you know what I mean?! Who knows, maybe it’s just me. Since the holiday falls on a Wednesday this year, I don’t have many plans. Some friends are out of town the first half of the week, some the second, some the whole week… so I’ll definitely just be playing it by ear over the next few days. I’m grabbing dinner and drinks with friends tonight, and then plan to watch the fireworks in Chicago tomorrow night! I’ll actually be watching the fireworks from THE AIR, which is going to be pretty badass. Be sure to check my Instagram stories tomorrow night to see it!

Summer Sales

With Fourth of July falling in the middle of the week this year, it seems like every retailer is having a giant summer sale all week long! This is potentially bad news for your bank account, but if you’re in the same spot as me and still find yourself needing some great summer pieces for the next few months, it’s a great time to scoop up some fresh new finds.
