My Law School Graduation

Happy Tuesday all! For those of you who don't know I took the plunge and for the past 3 years have been attending law school. This past May was my last semester! Last Sunday was finally my graduation ceremony (only a month later, but better late then never right?) and the entire day felt so surreal! I could not be more thankful for my amazing family and support system pictured below! In order of their appearances are my Mom and her boyfriend, my little brother Ryan, my grandparents, and of course my amazing boyfriend Matt! I'm so happy they were able to share this experience with me! After the ceremony I had a little party to celebrate with my closest family and friends! Scroll to see the gorgeous pictures and to see (and shop) what I wore under my cap and gown!

My dress is Show Me Your Mumu and my gorgeous heels are Sam Edelman (and come in two different color combos AND are on sale)! And obviously hair was styled (to perfection & lasted all day) by the one and only Blohaute!

Weekend Recap

 
 






 
 
 
Happy Monday! Usually I am not one to be happy on a Monday, but I am particularly fond of this one, since it is Ryan and my 6th year anniversary (yes 6, you heard that right!). I recapped our weekend which was filled with all of our favorite things. We both headed out with friends on Saturday, I at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI and he out at Wrigley Field. Then together aboard the Odyssey boat with my family for a champagne brunch to celebrate my sisters birthday (which was amaze! totally recommend for special occasions, check it out here). Making it six years is no easy feat ,but it's been worth it every step of the way! We loved being able to celebrate with family and friends and I look forward to many more amazing times and anniversary's with my amazing man!

Summer Trench

Summer Trench


 
It pains me to have to even write this kind of post at the end of June, but for us Chicagoans (and pretty much the majority of the Midwest right now) we've been experiencing pretty rainy weather. I have yet to only wear shorts one time, hence my lack of a tan. However, there's no way we will not still go out and enjoy our day, hence why I've come up with some stylish jackets to bring out just in case. The above trench look in white is really refreshing for rainy summer days, and the light material will not make you sweat in the humidity. Also a short option is great to pair with shorts, so it doesn't look like your missing bottoms. Luckily since it isn't jacket season for the rest of the world, all of these are also on sale! Hopefully July holds sunnier weather, but for now let's make the best of what whatever weather comes our way!

Father's Day Gifts $100 and Under

Father's day



 
If you're anything like me, you tend to leave things until the last minute. So just in case you're also scrambling to get your Dad something great this weekend for Father's Day, I've compiled a few items that are of decent prices to wow your Dad. Since clothing may not always be their most favorite gift, I've added in kitchen ware, Drinking ware, and tech accessories. Although I've never met a Dad who didn't appreciate a great pair of slippers or polo. 
Have a great weekend!

What's In Your Purse


Although my bag may seem big, I'm very simple with what I keep in it! I guess I do that so its easier for me to change purses quickly! Majority of the time you'll only find my wallet, a pair of sunnies, lipstick, lip gloss, blush, and my phone! What do you keep in your purse?

What Bikini Brands Are In My Suitcase

As I packed my bags for the vacation I'm leaving for tomorrow with my boyfriend and his family I couldn't decide which bikinis I wanted to bring for this 8 day trip! As I was searching through my bikini drawer I realized that I'm kind of obsessed with only 4 brands of bikinis that I think are really amazing! I decided to share these brands with you so you can discover and enjoy them as much as I do!

1. Maaji Swimwear



You've seen both Katie and I post about this brand before because its absolutely amazing. They're daring with their choices on what patterns to mix together and are always colorful!

2. PilyQ



I was first introduced to this brand when I won a contest on instragram gifting me a free PilyQ bikini and now I'm in love with them! So many people complimented me on the beautiful bikini and how well it fit my body and made me look, always a plus when you're in a bikini!

3. Triangl



At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like these bikinis because they are made with neoprene. However, I realized that I was wrong! But be careful, neoprene doesn't have much give to it so you may want to order up from a size you normally would wear!

4. BCBG



Katie and I actually both ordered the bikini pictured above and I already know it will be worn on repeat! The material is so soft and reminds me a lot of my magi bikinis! Plus, its revisable, SCORE!


Hope I enlightened you on some new bikini brands you need to try! I'm off to sail the southern caribbean!
