When I arrived back in Chicago to much cooler temps from Europe, it was a sobering reminder that fall is on the way. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some fall clothing and the cool breeze has been a breath of fresh air, but it’s always kind of sad to see summer go… Especially this early! The past few years in Chicago, we’ve gotten a late start to summer weather, but the warm days lasted well into the fall. We got lucky with an early start to summer this year, but I guess that means fall is going to come right on time, too. Perhaps the silver lining is that we’ll get a true fall season that lasts more than a week or two?! Wishful thinking!Continue reading
I feel like almost every outfit I’ve posted in the last few months is some variation of blue and white, but what can I say? It’s always been my summer uniform of sorts! A little bit preppy, a little bit nautical, and always a classic.Continue reading
Happy Friday, friends! Long time no talk… We accidentally skipped FF#33 last week simply because I lost track of what day it was in Croatia and ran into a few technical issues with wifi and charging while I was there. We were in Hvar last Tuesday-Friday and while our apartment was great, the wifi only worked in one bedroom. And naturally, it wasn’t mine. It was a 15 minute walk to an internet cafe so popping in an out wasn’t an easy option, so I just kind of embraced it and totally checked out from work.Continue reading
Spontaneous get-togethers and spur of the moment plans are what summer is all about! Whether it’s a road trip to Lake Geneva (more on that coming soon!), having friends over for impromptu pool parties on the roof, or hosting friends at my place before we head to a music festival, this summer has been full of unexpected adventures and last-minute plans. Those moments are the best, aren’t they?Continue reading
While music festivals can sometimes get a bit of a bad rap, I couldn’t love them more! What’s not to love? Hanging out with friends, listening to live music, tasting some of the best food and drinks that the city has to offer? Count me in!
I went to Lollapalooza in Chicago (right before I left for Croatia!) with GODIVA and it was SO much fun! I kicked off the four-day festival at the pink GODIVA truck on Thursday afternoon, which made for the perfect Instagram moment. (Anything pink, really!) But OMG you guys, the treats! We all know I have such a sweet tooth and an extra stomach for dessert so I was essentially on Cloud 9 all weekend long.Continue reading
