I’m in LOVE with ROXY! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a “thing” as much as I do my new favorite crossbody handbag. I just think she’s the most adorable handbag in the world. If I can’t have fun with fashion, then I don’t want to be a style blogger!! Honestly, she was a bit of a splurge, but I just couldn’t help myself (use code SPICEITUP for an additional 25% off). Some people have pets, I have Roxy 🙂
Asides, proclaiming my love for Roxy, I love being on spring break. I know it’s Thursday and it’s my first post of the week, but I’ve been “relaxing” or at least trying to. Although, I would have preferred to be on vacation, I’ve been laying low at home. Most days I’ve been catching up on more reading and I saw season one of Stranger Things – so creepy. I know I’m behind on popular culture, but that’s what break is all about, right?!
Back to spring fashion! I’ve also done a lot of spring cleaning and listed a bunch of items in my closet. A good closet clean is great because I’m trying to wear my clothes as much as possible without buying new items. While doing so, I found my pins and spruced up my denim jacket. How cute is this cassette pin my sister got me from Paris last year! I’m obsessed. And this blue nail polish is from Paris too. The lizard is from Greece and the flower pin is from an old Nanette Lepore jacket that I’ve had for years. I don’t think Roxy minds sharing this outfit post with those friends. Now, if only spring break would last forever…

I’ll take summer in February every year, please! What a gorgeous weekend we had here in Chicago and what a treat! I’m glad that I have today off as well to enjoy the beautiful weather just one more day before going back to work and before winter decides to come back later on this week. I instantly felt like a whole different person this weekend because of the weather. I loved swapping out my winter coat for a light spring floral bomber jacket and these fun heart embellished coral spring sling-backs. Since my summer wardrobe constantly consists of overalls, I thought it was appropriate to wear them this weekend as well.
Asides from the gorgeous weather, I had an fun-filled weekend with Monica. We went out for sushi, saw High Fidelity the Musical (which is amazing and so well done), then we were part of a lookbook for Holly & Tanager, a Chicago-based handbag brand (I can’t wait to share images: here’s a preview 1 & 2) and now we’re brunching and blogging at Soho House. I also attended a girl power workout session of cycling and yoga at Studio III with my other favorite chica, Sapna. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend and better friends to hang out with. What did you all do this weekend? Anybody else want summer to stick around in February for just a tad bit longer!
