I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with bold stripes and pops of color. I couldn’t resist when I saw this striped shirt on ASOS. Although I’m not ready to let go of summer (because it just began), I will definitely be layering over this little pretty one in the fall. The past few weeks have been insanity… it’s been a while since life has felt so full — but it’s a glass overflowing kind of full so I cannot complain! Maybe it’s getting a little help from the weather, but it’s mostly just how happy and thankful I am. We’ve had some amazing news within our family that I will be sharing soon :), I just moved into a new apartment, and our summer is finally kicked off and in full throttle.

Last week I had a blast at the Madewell event! Details and pictures to come soon — thanks to everyone for your support and for coming. This Thursday is the Purely Fashion + Cheeky Chicago event at Untitled, an event you won’t want to miss. I’m ecstatic to be paired up with designer Miriam Cecilia and will be rocking an outfit from her A/W collection. Hope everyone is having a good week so far! xo
