All Laced Up

Sunday, February 26, 2017

I'm SO ready for spring! Last weekend, I took a little walk to the North end of Lakeview to enjoy the nice weather. I'm sure you guys have seen this wall before, but it was so cute and on the side of a restaurant there was this cute and colorful mural! It was the perfect compliment to my casual weekend wear, don't you think?

I've been living in these jeans from Old Navy (I mean where else would they be from?). I also recently grabbed this white lace up top from Aerie (c/o) and I really love it. I don't usually go for a top of this style, but it's perfect for spring. I'm itching to switch out my winter gear, but know we are still in for some frigid days. Eep! Until then, it'll just have to come intermittently I guess :)

A Mascara Moment

Friday, February 24, 2017

I'm having a moment with mascara as of late. I've been working on simplifying my morning routine to be fairly minimal unless I know I have a lot of meetings or an event, which I'll do a little more full coverage. I recently shared this post on beauty buys I am loving right now, but I knew I had to do a more dedicated post on the topic of mascara. I mean, I can't be the only one who is looking for the full lash secret? It totally completes a look and adds a little oomph - even when sleep might be a forgotten thing!

Spring Styles

Monday, February 20, 2017

I can't even begin to tell you how absolutely amazing the weather was in Chicago this weekend. I mean, I'm sure you saw my several Instagram posts (along with everyone else in the city), but I'm really digging these spring vibes! Right before my trip to Florida I picked up this adorable carry on travel tote from Vera Bradley. Their spring campaign has me wishing I was taking a trip to Havana in the near future!

Until that trip, I never had a carry-on bag like this. It's super room-y and even has tons of pockets for different things from beauty essentials to your shoes to your laptop and smaller carry-on items without being huge. Yet, I would guess you could totally fit a solid three to four outfits in there depending on where you're headed!

Let's Chat!

Friday, February 17, 2017

I'm going to come right out with a disclaimer here: I'm not trying to be like every other blogger who does a link round-up on Friday, but I did think it would be fun to catch you up on what's been happening on my end lately! I was seriously so surprised by how many of you read my dating post last week and the amount of thoughtful responses were amazing. What it really tells me is you guys are interested in my life.... am I right? Now, I'm not sure if you're being nosy haha or if these topics really do resonate more than a fashion post. I mean, silly question because let's be honest: real life stuff is so much more interesting then the newest pair of distressed denim. However, don't be fooled. I did do some online shopping recently that you are certainly going to hear about :)

Let's chat, shall we?

My Favorite Beauty Buys Right Now

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

I'm definitely one of those people who will put on a little bit of makeup almost every morning - except for the weekends. (Apologies in advance if you see me grocery shopping lol) It makes me feel more put together and helps to freshen up my face a bit. I get the opportunity to try quite a few products through the blog, but I noticed I pretty much stick to the same routine every day especially when I find key products that I love. I thought it would be fun to share what my favorite beauty buys are right now. You can even find most of these at your local drug store which is a huge plus!
