Little Navy Dress: Work & Weekend

This little navy dress is definition business in the front, party in the back! I recently wore it under a scalloped blazer for a meeting and wore it again sans jacket (and swapped my pumps for lace-up sandals) for one of my besties’ bridal showers a few weekends ago! The lace back is subtly sexy for summer… Definitely not too revealing, but adds to much to the dress. It comes in white, too, for all you brides-to-be! Just wait ’til you see it from the back…

Striped Romper in Mayakoba

I’ll be sharing a full recap and lots of outfits from my trip to Mayakoba, Mexico the rest of this week! I stayed at the Fairmont and it was absolutely incredible… Gorgeous pools, an amazing beach, and so many lush plants and flowers, too. It kind of felt like we were staying in a jungle, as you can probably tell from all of the greenery in these photos. The property was unlike anywhere else I’ve stayed… There are waterways that run through the entire property, underground caves, and a whole lot more. Can’t wait to share more photos and a little video I put together, too!

Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

‘Tis the season for afternoon ice cream trips! Nothing cures that 3 o’clock slump like two scoops in a waffle cone, am I right? I was working at Sawada the week before last and made the executive decision to walk over and try Cone when my productivity was waning.

I mentioned it in a post a couple of weeks ago, but I just picked up this little striped bag and I’m obsessed. It’s the perfect size for weekday or weekend and it even fits my 12″ Macbook! The crossbody strap length is just right and it’s removable, too. Highly recommend! (Nordstrom has a few left at 50% off, FYI! Shop them here.)

Add it to your list immediately! I honestly want to move here, and am kind of kicking myself that I just resigned my lease in Chicago. Next summer, perhaps?! It’s seriously amazing.

Italian Summer

Someone recently asked me about my favorite vacation, and without a doubt, it was Italy last summer. For so many reasons, it was one of the most incredible trips I’ve been on. It was my first time visiting the country, it was my first stint at traveling alone internationally, and it was simply one of those trips that feeds your soul. I loved Rome and Florence, but unsurprisingly so, I absolutely fell in love with the Amalfi Coast! Ever since I left last July, I’ve been trying to figure out when I can go back.
