Friday Finds || Week 20

Man oh man, this week felt like it was months long! TGIF. After a good friend’s birthday party on Saturday night, I headed home to see my family on Sunday morning. I actually stayed a few days longer than I had planned because it felt so nice to be out of the city for a little bit. I always say how I could never live in such a small town like where I grew up, and while that’s definitely still true, this was the first time in a long time where I truly appreciated the slower pace and simpler lifestyle. When I got back to Chicago on Tuesday night, I had to hit the ground running for various work projects… This week consisted of lots of coffee and very little sleep. I’m so ready for the weekend! I’m actually headed out of the country on Monday morning (for work, but it will still be fun!) so I have a fairly long to-do list over the next two days, but hopefully I can find a bit of a balance. Hope you’ve got fun plans! Here are this week’s finds…

Statement Sleeves + Eyelet Shorts

Summer-like weather has surprised us in Chicago this week and I couldn’t be happier! It’s making me so very excited for the next few months… Summertime Chi is seriously the best. Next week will be back to temps that are more typical for spring, but I’m soaking up these 85 degree days while they’re here and it’s doing wonders for my state of mind. It’s also making it a bit of a challenge to get work done because I just want to be outside sipping rosé!

I thought it would be fun to start a little happy hour series just in time for the warm weather we’ve all been waiting for! (My Chicago and NYC gals know what I mean… 40 degrees in May? Give me a break.) A few Thursdays a month, I’ll be sharing some of my go-to cocktail recipes and entertaining ideas to get you through the summer! First up? My favorite rosé wines! I discussed it in more depth in this post, but I’m very particular about my rosé… A self-proclaimed connoisseur. Here are my ten favorites to sip on all summer long…

LND: Little Navy Dress

While you can never go wrong with a LBD, I tend to gravitate towards little navy dresses, especially in the warmer months. This dress caught my eye because of the tiny pop of color in the piping at the waist, the basketweave texture, and the little bit of fringe detailing at the neckline! Did I need another navy dress? Nope, sure didn’t. But it felt different than the other little navy dresses hanging in my closet!
