posing in front of ivy wallI think this ivy wall brought the Chicago Cubs some good luck to clinch a spot in the World Series this week. Ok, this is not at Wrigley Field, but it’s close enough! You might think I’m crazy, but I actually went to Wrigley on Saturday night to watch the game outside of the ball park because let’s face it – the resale of tickets is out of this world. It really was so exciting being around so many fans all cheering for our Cubbies. What was quite funny were that the televisions at Murphy’s Bleachers were on a twenty second delay, so we could hear cheering from inside the stadium, but we had to wait to officially cheer once we saw the plays. People were out in the streets and it was so cool to experience. Now, I’m just debating if I should head down to Wrigley again this week to be a part of history again.

Nordstrom Rack Grand Opening @ Fashion Outlets of Chicago 

nordstrom rack grand openingThe new Nordstrom Rack store at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago has officially opened! I had so much fun at the opening event and you seriously can’t beat the amazing finds and deals. The addition of Nordstrom Rack, makes the Fashion Outlets of Chicago one of the only two outlet shopping centers in the United States with every outlet anchor store located onsite. How cool is that?! I may be biased because Nordstrom Rack is seriously my favorite store, but I highly recommend checking out this location. mini hot dogs delightful kate spade clutch in black friends in a mirror selfie drinking coke

Where Art Meets Fashion

And last, but not least, “THE COLLECTION” at Fashion Outlets of Chicago is launching the first week of November with the unveiling of a newly commissioned work by Carlos Rolón/Dzine. A Chicago artist and 2016 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Award for Painting and Sculpture, Rolón has been recognized for his elaborately crafted paintings, ornate sculptures and works that come out of American, Latino and uniquely based subcultures. His newest work will be located in front of Bloomingdale’s The Outlet Store and Tory Burch on level two of the shopping center. In addition, the first of “THE COLLECTION’s” rotating mobile exhibitions, changing three times a year, will also be revealed. Curated by Director and Founder of Johalla Projects Anna Cerniglia, the exhibition—on view through February—will feature the work of Aimée Beaubien, Kate McQuillen and Jeroen Nelemans.

The Rolón commission joins the work of eight artists currently included in Fashion Outlets of Chicago’s contemporary art collection. Artists include Daniel Arsham, Bhakti Baxter, Jim Drain, Cody Hudson, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Kenton Parker, Bert Rodriguez and Jen Stark. The artwork, both painted murals and hanging installations, can be found throughout the shopping center’s common areas and will continue to be on display for patrons to enjoy. Can’t wait to check out the new art installations!

Chambray Jumpsuit

chambray-jumpsuit-5I’m super happy that the weather is still warm enough to wear this chambray jumpsuit! I’m also super happy because today is THE DAY ~ my last cross country day! I know I talked about it in yesterday’s post, but I’ve been coaching for several years now and a much needed break is necessary. I know I still have one more season of hurdles left in the spring, but you can only imagine how super happy I’ll be when that time comes around too! So today, at the district conference meet, I’m going to cheer as loud as possible so my runners know I’m right there encouraging them to run their best races of the season and I’m going to soak up all the excitement that goes along with races for one last time. chambray-jumpsuit-3 chambray-jumpsuit-2 chambray-jumpsuit-4 chambray-jumpsuit-6 chambray-jumpsuit-1Mimi Chica: Jumpsuit (option) // Franco Sarto: Shoes (option) // Ralph Lauren: Sunglasses (option)
