Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the air… Or is it?! It actually SNOWED in Chicago on Sunday, and I’m not talking a few flurries. We had a straight up winter snow storm and the snow was falling down all day and well into the night. Crazy for mid-April, right?! I remember last year when I was at Coachella and hearing that it was snowing back in Chicago on that Sunday of the festival and being so glad that I wasn’t in town for it! Last year, I believe it was just a few flurries, but this year it was almost blizzard-like conditions with the wind! Spring, where are you at?!

Friday Finds || Vol. 3, Week 15

This week was all about the peaks and valleys! If you read this post earlier this week, one of my girlfriends was in town visiting during the early part of the week and I was fully checked out of work for about 36 hours. On Wednesday afternoon, I went over to Kate’s to record an episode for each of our podcasts and we ended up recording for over four hours total. I was so tired by the time I got home at 7pm that I ended up passing out on the couch for a few hours, haha!

What I Wore Last Week + Mini Nordstrom Try-On

Happy Monday, friends! Last week, I went out for a friend’s birthday on Wednesday night and ended up repeating the same outfit for the event I went to on Thursday. When Friday rolled around, one of my girlfriends and I opted to catch up on my couch in sweatpants instead of going out. So I really only have two outfits to share from this past week! But I popped in to Nordstrom yesterday and figured I’d give you a peek at what I tried on.
