Friday Finds || Week 11

I don’t know where the week went! I feel like I blinked and suddenly it’s Friday… But on the other hand, last weekend feels a lot longer than five days ago. That’s how every week has felt lately, though. The days are long and the weeks are short? Or is it the other way around… Days are short and the weeks are long? Who knows, but I do wonder why it feels like that. I took most of the day off work on Monday to hang with friends who were visiting from the East Coast, so maybe that has something to do with it!

I’ve got a busy day today and then dinner tonight (we’re getting Mexican even though it’s St. Patrick’s Day!) and I’m sure we’ll head out with the boys to watch basketball afterwards. No real plans the rest of the weekend, which is sometimes the best. We’ll see where the wind blows! Hope you had a great week and have an even better weekend ahead! xo JRS

Blue Peplum + White Jeans in Cabo

Looking at these photos is giving me a serious case of wanderlust, as it’s been cold and snowy this week in Chicago! This is one of the last outfits I’ll be posting from my trip to Cabo, but it’s an outfit that I’ll be wearing on repeat this spring and summer once it’s nice enough. When I’m not wearing a dress, a fun top paired with white jeans and statement earrings is my warm-weather uniform of choice! It’s so easy to keep it casual with a pair of sandals and a textured tote, but it’s a simple swap for a pair of heels and a clutch for a night out.

On the Bright Side

After opting for neutrals the last few months, I’m ready to bring on the brights! Light, bright, and airy tends to be my style philosophy this time of year. Sure, it may be snowing in Chicago this week, but I’ve been taking advantage of the spring-like days when we’ve been lucky enough to get them. Striped shirts, floral prints, destroyed denim, and candy-colored accessories all feel a little bit lighter and help get me into the spring spirit! And a little bit of a Parisian meets neo-nautical vibe always helps, too. 🙂
