Daisies, Stripes, & Ruffles

I got this striped, ruffled, daisy-printed top just before my trip to Japan and it was perfect to throw on with a pair of white jeans for a day of visiting temples in Kyoto! The top itself has a lot going on so I kept everything else in the same color family… a red-orange lip, white sunglasses and statement earrings, and simple leather sandals and a rattan bag.

Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 19

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been in Amsterdam all week and it’s been such a blast, but time has been absolutely flying by. For the most part, the weather has been INSANELY gorgeous — I’ve never seen Amsterdam like this. Sunny, 80 degrees, blue skies, and barely any rain at all. It’s been incredible! I’ve been here working on a new venture so it’s been quite exhilarating, but sort of exhausting at the same time (in the best way possible) trying to do it all — have fun, enjoy the weather, catch up with friends, explore the city, keep up with emails, blog work, and working on our new business, too. Whew! I’ve got the weekend here and I’ll be back to Chicago on Sunday evening. Hope you’ve got a wonderful weekend ahead! xo JRS

Color Crush: Tangerine

I keep seeing bright, tangy tangerine-hued pieces all over and it’s making get into that summer state of mind! (Plus, it was just King’s Day in Amsterdam so I felt like the orange theme was very appropriate this week.) A pop of persimmon is always great with an all-white summer outfit and definitely mixes well with our favorite navy and white ensembles.

Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 18

Hellooooo from Chicago! I feel like I’ve been gone for-ev-er. Japan was so much fun, but since we’d both been before (a short 18 months ago) we thought the trip felt a little bit on the long side this time around. I’m sure a big part was because I was so sick for the first ten days… I finally started to feel a bit better on Sunday, just as we got to Osaka. (Which was great timing, as it was my first time in Osaka!) After Osaka, we made our way to the Izu Peninsula for a night and before flying back to the US. I got back to Chicago last night and it felt so good to be home… I unpacked and got all of my laundry done, went to a deep stretch yoga class, got my favorite Sweetgreen salad, did two face masks, took a bath, and got to sleep in my own bed! Today and tomorrow won’t as relaxing… I’ve got quite the lengthy to-do list before I fly out again on Sunday. (Why do I do this to myself with back-to-back trips?! haha)
