Statement Sleeves and Blue Stripes, Spring Style

“You’re the most fashionable librarian I’ve ever met.” Actual quote from an actual person while out shopping the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale. Which, by the way, if stunning bags are your thing, get to a store or shop online right now! Got myself a gorgeous little quilted number that I’m not showing you guys quite yet but that I’m beyond excited about. It was an actual moment of “Hello, gorgeous! ...

Cuddles and Coffee | Mugs by Trendy Sparrow

Readers, I have a confession to make. I am addicted to coffee.  I know, you are all completely shocked by this statement. After all, I have never ever ever ever ever posted any content related to coffee. Not even in the slightest. That’s entirely why I’m working with The Trendy Sparrow on these mugs. Because coffee is just the worst. All sarcasm and kidding aside, I’m super excited about this collaboration! These mugs are ...

After honeymooning in Tulum — and all of the research that went into preparing for that trip — my wife and I are pretty confident on giving some amazing suggestions for traveling in and around Tulum. Specifically, travel suggestions that do NOT involve locking yourself on a bus with a dozen other couples, families, and retirees trying to see the same sights as you. Been there, done that, and nobody wants the t-shirt. To visit ...

Summertime Chi | Summer Style in Chicago

Sarah immediately requested I call this post “legs for days” when she saw my outfit choice. And I don’t blame her. Mini skirt + wedges? Yeah, that’s a legs for days kind of outfit. But this is so much more than that. This look is my nod to summer in Chicago (or as we lovingly call it, Summertime Chi), to the promise of long warm days, cool nights on rooftops with amazing people, and so many other different activities ...

BCBGMAXARIZA + Blogger Babes

With the sunshine in Chicago this weekend, my gal Caitlin and I made plans to head out to the lakefront to shoot. And, Chicago being the amazing city that it is, gave us that promised sunshine! With a windchill. Us bloggers, though, we brave a lot more than a slightly chilly day for the perfect photo. Let’s just say there was a ton of hot coffee and warm layers when I got home. But when you have an awesome blogger babe on your side and ...

Since the beginning of the year, I have embarked on an overall health and wellness journey for my body that has settled specifically into yoga and meditation/mindfulness. Time for some blogger real talk. If you were around last year, you saw that I was actively working on my mental health. Doing anything I could to help settle my anxiety and depression.

Springtime in Chicago

Lately, I’ve been consuming all things spring. From springy music that puts a little pep in my step to the fresh flowers at the grocery store. Which, obviously, includes spring fashion.
