Greetings from Chicago




My apologies for the radio silence! The pug and I officially moved to Chicago on Sunday evening and it has been a whirlwind ever since. I absolutely love my new neighborhood, the Gold Coast, and everything seems to be falling into place. My friend and her husband live a few floors down and they’d already picked up my keys, unrolled my new Casper mattress (it’s like sleeping on a cloud!), and ordered in Lou Malnati’s. Needless to say, it was the perfect first night. My apartment is just a studio, but has three closets, big windows, and a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Everyone here is so friendly, the food is spectacular (so far I’ve hit up Fred’s at Barneys, Longman & Eagle, and Lost Lake…), and the architecture takes my breath away. Flat Rate Moving arrives with my boxes from New York this afternoon. I can’t wait to finally unpack and get all settled. I have such a good feeling about this place. Cheers to new beginnings!

Poolside Chic


I have been laying out for thirty minutes each afternoon here in California (soaking up some Vitamin D before Chicago!) and it has me searching for something cuter than my boring black bikini. This Tory one-piece is tempting me–understatedly sexy, don’t you think? 

1. Tory Burch Swimsuit – because a one-piece doesn’t have to basic, also here… // 2. Dannijo Minnie Earrings – love the spiky yet dainty design… // 3. Drawstring Leather Bucket Bag – into the gold hardware… // 4. Tory Burch Viv Flats – classic for day to night… // 5. Sculpted Skinny Cuff Bracelet – want on my wrist stat… // 6. Baker Leather Strap Watch – a longtime favorite… //

Madewell Spring 2015 Catalog


Madewell’s Spring 2015 catalog has me dreaming of a South American getaway. Photographed in Buenos Aires, the look book backdrop is a lovely as the clothes themselves. I’ve been itching to travel to Argentina for ages and this certainly hasn’t discouraged my wanderlust. I’ll take the wardrobe and the cobblestone streets.
