The tiered reversed ombré summer dress is such a dream. It was the perfect summer night dress to wear to the Windy City Bloggers happy hour at Q-BBQ earlier this week. It was really fun meeting new bloggers in the collective and sampling the menu. The pulled pork sliders were so dreamy and the fried green tomatoes, which I’ve never tried before, were amazing. I definitely recommend checking out Q if you’re looking for a celebration space or for dinner.

lighthouse lighthouse lighthouse lighthouse lighthouselighthouselighthouselighthouselighthouselighthouselighthouseLast week was my first blogcation and although I missed writing, it was well worth the little time off. My best friend, D, and I went on an East Coast trip. Originally, we wanted to do a road trip along the coast, but then we remembered that we drove 12 straight hours to D.C. a couple of years ago and as mature adults, we automatically vetoed road-tripping this beach inspired trip.

We started in New York and then made our way to Cape Cod with trips to Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and finishing off in Boston. I believe we took every mode of transportation as well, but it was definitely worth it with views like this lighthouse in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. Martha’s Vineyard was serene and very picturesque, don’t mind all the lighthouse photos – I was feeling inspired and the lighting and colors were great. (And maybe I was pretending that I was summering in Greece being seaside, but shhh…)

P.S. isn’t D getting so much better at taking my blog photos?!
