Bright & Colorful Date Night

Before we get in to the details of today's post I'm so happy to have a guest model, Emily! When we met up for our double date the other night I was completely in love with her outfit and she graciously agreed to let me feature her!


Emily is the gorgeous girlfriend of my boyfriends brother! She's amazing and so is her sense of style, as can be demonstrated by her outfit! I again apologize for the terrible quality of the pics from my phone instead of my camera that I forgot at home. If you want details on my outfit you can check out that post here. I love the details on Em's pants paired with her Brandy Melville top. They go perfectly with her Steve Madden wedges and her Rebecca Minkoff bag! Have a great weekend all!

Beach Hair

 
I don't know about you, but I love pretending I've just spent an entire day at the beach with beachy hair styles/waves all through out the Summer season. With my light blonde hair, products with a lot of salt and dehydrating texture sprays deferred me from trying them out. However, below are the ones I've tried and LOVED. My hair was left feeling bouncy, fresh and had great subtle beach waves as if I had been soaking up some rays in the sand. Not to mention it also smelled fab all day long. Don't be fooled - Not all sprays are great at doing this, but I feel that these brands got it in the bag. Shop them all below!

Black & White Date Night


On this lovely hump day I'm bringing you one of my date night looks. I apologize for the poor quality of the photos but I forgot my camera at home so I had to take them with my iPhone (whoops). Last night Matt and I went on a double date with his brother and his girlfriend! We had so much fun and I can't wait for our next one! It was a little hot and humid at first but I knew the night was going to get cooler so I chose to wear skinny jeans and pair it with a sleeveless top and peep toe booties. Perfect ensemble for a date night! Have a great week all!

LBD Summer Dress










I am loving this little black dress for all things summer. It has a perfect contract with it's white belt that adds just the right amount of dimension. For a monochromatic look, I paired it with a white hat with a black belt. This outfit really made a statement over this Memorial day weekend and I can't wait to wear it again.
 
I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend!

Throwback To Basics + Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale


Happy throwback thursday! This is an outfit I wore last spring/summer that for some reason never actually made it on the blog. Once I realized this it was too late to add it because it was already winter and well no one in Chicago could survive winter if they tried to wear shorts haha. Luckily these are basic pieces and a must add to your closet. All the items I've linked to are actually on sale as part of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale (that I promise you do NOT want to miss). I loved pairing my black cut off shorts with this blush pink blouse. I personally believe its okay to wear black all year round and it makes up a majority of my wardrobe! Happy shopping at the half yearly sale!

Off The Shoulder Romper


Happy tuesday dolls! I'm so happy I am back in NYC and have been having a blast here! Up until yesterday the weather has pretty much been beautiful! It's no secret that I wish I could live in rompers, playsuits and maxi's all spring and summer long. I've been crushing on Spell & The Gypsy Collective (I even dedicated a full post to them here) and I ended up buying this adorable off the shoulder romper which quickly sold out! But don't worry the sand color is back in stock in all sizes on Nasty Gal! I kept my look casual by pairing it with my converse. I will definitely be bringing it on my cruise in June to wear with wedges one night to dinner! Have a great week all!
