This Week…

This week has been totally jam packed but really enjoyable at the same time. Excuse my second week in a row with no outfit posts…with trying to wrap up my last week and a half of work, busy nights, and busy weekends – it has been hard to find the time. I promise next week, outfits will be out in full force!
On Tuesday night I went to a little shopping event with some Chicago bloggers at J.Crew, we all tried on our fair share of clothes and I left with the Tippi Leopard Sweater and the Blythe Silk Blouse in Extravagant Green. I was gushing over the new Lulu Frost for J.Crew, the collection is seriously ah-mazing.
I finally registered for Rendez-vous New England – the brain child of my two favorite ladies, Jillian and Alison. I can’t wait!
I have been trying to track down the perfect loafer for fall. I decided, because I am short and this style doesn’t always seem to flatter my stumpy legs, that these sparkly numbers are calling my name. They are not too tailored, have a loafer/Keds kind of shape, and I just adore the sparkles. Pedro Garcia, Geri Flats $380
Last night, my bestie {and roommate} and I went to DMK Burger Bar. It is an all grass fed beef burger bar, with delicious beers on tap {Daisy Cutter – my favorite!} and seriously delicious concepts. Go there.
Tonight, I am jumping on the water taxi at 6pm with about 20 pals and heading to Chinatown for dinner and karaoke to celebrate a friends birthday. I have never been to Chinatown {have any of you Chicago girls?} so I have no idea what to expect but I have no doubt that it will be blast.
Can you believe it is the last weekend in August?! I can’t. To me, Labor Day marks the end of summer and the official start of fall, which I don’t think I am complaining about. The days are getting a tiny bit cooler here in Chicago and I can’t help but anticipate bbq’s in sweatshirts, early morning coffee strolls in big, cozy knits, orange and red leaves along the lake, and football season. A few of us bloggers here in Chicago have our Fantasy Football draft on Monday! We are pumped.
Thank you for all of the sweet comments over the last week in regards to my job and my bold decision to start a life with intention {thanks to MML and Jess Constable, I have been feeling very confident about my decision, her posts are so unbelievably uplifting!}, your support means so much to me and I can’t tell you what a rock the blog world has become in my life.
Whoa, this has been a lot of chatter. Have a wonderful weekend my dears!! xoxo
