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!

Spring Sneakers

Ever since ‘athleisure’ became a trend a few years ago and health and wellness seem to be at the forefront of everyone’s minds, sneakers have been back in a big way. They’re not just for workouts anymore and they’re not just for running errands, either! There are so many cute styles available and they look so fresh with most all of our spring and summer pieces. Over the last year (probably a little bit longer), I’ve been swapping my usual sandals for a cute pair of sneakers, especially with dresses and skirts on the weekends. While sandals will forever be a great option, sneakers are a fun way to switch things up. Plus, they’re generally nicer to your feet and better for biking, too!

Friday Finds || Weeks 18, 19

Happy Friday, friends! It’s been a busy last few weeks (month, really) and I’m looking forward to being home in Chicago this weekend. I have a friend’s birthday party on Saturday and am headed home to see my family on Sunday. My plan is to stay in tonight, but I’m sure I’ll somehow be convinced otherwise considering it’s absolutely beautiful in Chicago today. Hoping I can find a good balance of fun and relaxing over the next few days!

If you’re out and about in Chicago this weekend, you have to check out the new Alice & Wonder store in Lincoln Park… It opens today and their grand opening party is tomorrow!

Oil Obsessed

As I was staring at my medicine cabinet full of different oils and serums the other day, I kind of laughed about how oil got such a bad rap for a while. I used to swear off anything and everything that wasn’t oil free. Fast-forward five years… Obsessed is the only word that comes to mind. I can’t get enough! I mean, I practically slather my body (face and hair included!) in oils before I go to bed each night. Oil-based cleansing balms that are gentle on your skin, sleeping oils to fight the signs of aging, hair oil to hydrate and shine, and all sorts of body oils, too… I can’t even begin to count the number of products on my shelves boasting oil as the hero ingredient! I’ve even started putting a few drops on my face right before I apply my makeup to make my skin look more dewy. Fully converted, absolutely.
