This cactus shirt is the closest I got to a desert over spring break last week. All the rain in Chicago put a real damper on my time off, but I tried to make the most of it. I’m hoping we get to see the sun again this week though! I caught up with friends, slept in and drank a lot of coffee, so overall, it was a good break from work. Now that I’m back this week, I’m looking forward to summer vacation in less than two months! Then I’ll definitely have more time to go on that desert vacation and perhaps elsewhere too. I’m definitely going to bring this cactus shirt with me no matter where I go because it’s so cute. Asides from being a really cute shirt, it was only $11! You can’t even get lunch for that price these days. I read the reviews and it said to order two sizes up for shoulder fit and this was spot on.

Hope you all have a lovely week. XO!

It’s Bean Real

It's Bean Real - 1It’s bean real, weekend and oh how I miss you so already… The good news is that I only have six more Mondays left of the school year! WOW – I can’t believe it. Then everyday will be Saturday and amazing like this past weekend. I finally went to the Van Gogh Bedrooms exhibit and it was amazing. I highly suggest going if you live in Chicago because the exhibit will close on May 10th. After soaking in some art, my cousin and I strolled around Millennium Park for a bit. Even if you live in Chicago, you have to stop by the Bean not just because it’s a city staple, but the people watching is amazing. Funny how a little sunshine really helped out my soul. Here’s hoping to a wonderful week ahead!

Sightseer Twist

sightseer twist - 1Today I’m playing sightseer with a twist! Living in Chicago and having friends visit all the time, I usually take them to the main attractions (i.e. Sears=Willis Tower, Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue, etc…) first, but what I really like to show my visitors is a part of the city that’s different and unexpected. The neighborhoods of Chicago are so unique that sometimes you forget you’re in the city. “Playing” local tourist and discovering new hidden gems is one of my favorite things to do on the weekends. That being said, I can’t wait to go exploring again this upcoming weekend.   sightseer twist - 8 sightseer twist - 2 sightseer twist - 4sightseer twist - 7 sightseer twist - 5 sightseer twist - 9sightseer twist - 6sightseer twist - 10sightseer twist - 3Loft: Sightseer Twist Jumpsuit // Goyard: Clutch (similar) // Mules: Option // Earrings: Option
