gap leather skirt and madewell side tie cropped shirtIt’s back to wearing leather skirts and tights… Chicago, please make up your mind on who you truly want to be. No more of this back and forth cold to hot all within a day. Anyway, at least I like my leather skirt that I’ve had for almost ten years! The thing about this skirt is that it still looks new and in season. It’s good to invest in a piece like this because as you can see for yourself, it’s timeless. I’m also happy that I can still fit in it – makes me feel young 😉 Are there any pieces in your closet that are timeless?

Sunday Best - 2Sunday best calls for a beautiful blue dress. This is one of my favorite summer wedding dresses of all time. The simplicity and delicacy of the material and design allowed me to dance the night away. I love the tassel tie details on the waist and the pretty neckline. Paired with fun heels and gold accents of earrings, bangle and clutch really made me feel like a Grecian Goddess 😉 I can’t wait to wear this dress again!Sunday Best - 1 Sunday Best - 5 Sunday Best - 3 Sunday Best - 6 Sunday Best - 4 Sunday Best - 7 Sunday Best - 9 Sunday Best - 8Loft: Dress (option) // Nine West: Heels (option) // COACH: Clutch (option) // Ray-Ban: Sunglasses // Sweet & Spark: Bangle (option)

Adventurer

Adventurer - 1Lately, I’ve been quite the adventurer! I love being on summer break because I get to explore the outdoors more and really appreciate nature. Last week I went to Starved Rock State Park with my sister and brother-in-law and we had so much fun on a hike. We couldn’t believe how beautiful the park was and how we felt like we were in a completely different place other than Illinois! I highly recommend going there if you need a little escape from the city.

Earlier this summer, I went on an amazing volunteering trip to the Dominican Republic. I did have some time though to explore the natural beauty of the country as well. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Dominican Republic, I HIGHLY recommend going to the Damajaqua Cascades (27 Waterfalls)! It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I went with my friend Sapna and some other friends we met on the cruise and had the most fun day ever. Waterfalls are my favorite natural element and I couldn’t help myself from smiling and laughing the whole time because I really was having the time of my life (I may have swallowed some water due to this, but it didn’t matter)!!! Also, definitely stop by Las Cuevas De Cabarate for some cave jumping and swimming.

What both of these adventures had in common was my Jambu Oklahoma shoes! They are seriously the most comfortable exploring shoes ever and without them, I don’t believe my adventures could have been as fun as they were. They were able to keep my feet safe and cute while trekking through waterfalls and trails. Get yourself outside adventuring too and order a pair of the exclusive for Nordstrom Oklahoma’s now during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! You’ll thank me later 😉
