Happy Weekend


Here we are again! I feel like I haven’t caught up with you guys lately. How was your week? What are you coveting for spring? Where do you live? What are your favorite blogs these days? How are you? Please feel free to leave your answer in the comments, I always love reading what you guys have to say! I have been feeling a bit discombobulated lately – with travel, packed bags, constant loads of laundry, unhealthy eating habits, less sleep and just kind of running on empty. I can’t complain – the reasons for feeling rundown are a huge blessing, but sometimes I just need a breather and time to myself. I was scrolling through my Words board on Pinterest and trying to refocus my energy on the positive {I highly recommend, it is like a giant hug}. 
What are you up to this weekend?  My weekend is pretty full with a fun shoot tomorrow and a full schedule of client closets on Sunday so I may just have to play hooky today – that’s allowed, right? I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
PS: I thought it would be fun to answer my own questions at the top:
What are you coveting for spring? A cute pair of sneaker espadrilles.  
Where do you live? The Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago.
What are your favorite blogs? {on current rotation}

  1. I love this! I’m coveting floral blazers for Spring! I love the Zara blazer in the same print as your floral top and shorts 🙂 I live in Raleigh, NC. My favorite blogs are NuSophisticate, A Piece of Toast, Gal Meets Glam, Girls Off Fifth, Damsel in Dior, Sequins & Stripes, Karla’s Closet, and the list goes on!

  2. Hey Liz!I’m coveting bright and cheerful furniture and bedding for the new studio apt. I just moved into! I live in Knoxville, TN but I have two brothers that live in Lincoln Park! My favorite blogs are Luella & June, Note to Self, Sequins and Strips, Design Darling and Things that Sparkle…could go on forever. Currently living on Apartment Therapy for ideas!

  3. Woohoo! Happy Friday! For spring I’m on the hunt for a great pair(s) of white and mint jeans. Living in DC/Northern VA area and we’re welcoming warm spring temps for the first time this weekend 🙂 #overjoyed. Blogs – too many to list, but I’ll say that yours is a recent new fav!

  4. I feel the same way love!!! And I love your pick for spring shoes, I just got those in the tribal-esque/B&W print, they are SOOO comfy! Now if it would just get a touch warmer so i could wear them!

  5. That photo you featured is fab! I’m currently coveting Tibi’s kaleidoscope print, they’re releasing more styles soon – I’m currently living in Florida, at my beach home – and my favorite blogs right now are yours, A Piece of Toast, Luella & June, Atlantic Pacific, The Native Fox, and Into the Fold…just to name a few! Have a great weekend!

  6. My week was drawn out, just got back from a weekend trip to Key West and lots of final projects for this semester of culinary school. It’s silly but I really am in love with how cheerful Gap’s bright yellow lined boat jacket sounds. I swear some days it feels like we have twenty 5 second torrential downpours (maybe this is because it’s raining today!) I live in Orlando. & I try not to favor blogs, but I love seeing people in cities I used to live near (Boston & Chicago) Hope your weekend clears your head and you relax a ton!


  7. I’m coveting summer neutrals (any tips for how to dress stylishly for the summer and being modest at the same time? Covered shoulders/knee-ish length? S/S are so hard for me because of that!) This weekend I will probably skip Zumba, make fruit smoothies and crepes, and maybe catch up on a lot of sleep I’ve been missing (but so worth missing- helloooo Maroon5 concert on a weeknight). I love your blog, A Blog About Love, Cup of Jo, and Across the Pond

  8. What are you coveting for spring? The Joie palm leaf blazer you featured last week…I say it in stores on Monday and cannot get it out of my head!

    Where do you live? The stylish South End of Boston 😉

    What are your favorite blogs? Well, hello there, you! I also read a ton — Cupcakes and Cashmere, Cheetah is the New Black, VMac and Cheese, Could I Have That?, Live Creating Yourself, The Neotraditionalist (and the list goes on…)

    As a new blogger I need all the inspiration (and role models!) I can get!



  9. Really could go for some new whites and florals for spring….I am stressing about what to do post grad…and volunteering at the local goodwill to help girls find prom dresses this weekend! So exciting to be doing something I love with girls who really need it!

  10. I’m coveting printed or colored ankle pants for work (not jeans!), cotton dresses for the office and the weekend, and lots and lots of fun new sandals!! I live in Boston, though frequent Chicago often for family and friends there. Grew up in South Florida. Love your blog! I only read a few but currently yours, Cupcakes + Cashmere, Gal Meets Glam, and Kendi Everyday. Also just found Wit & Delight which looks cute. Have a good weekend!

  11. I’m coveting a fabulous new haircut and a better understanding of how to style my really thick, rather unruly curly hair! Any advice is so appreciated! I am somewhat new to the blogging community and always on the hunt for new blogs so thank you for sharing I will check them out. ! (www.blairsays.com)

    As for me, this spring I’m coveting black & white stripes, printed and colorful blazers, mid-heel pumps and mirrored aviators! I live in New Brunswick, Canada. A few of my favorite bloggers at the moment are Brooklyn Blonde, Damsel in Dior, and Her Waise Choice!

    I hope you find some downtime this weekend to relax & recharge! A glass of vino & freshly painted nails always helps for me! 🙂 Happy Friday!

    I am coveting strappy sandals, bright lipsticks, and pops of neon. And I just need the new J.Crew scalloped shift. Not that my closet is short of shift dresses or anything.
