I’m still shaking from the fact that I got to meet James Cordon!!! He is by far my favourite comedian and probably my favourite celebrity. He is absolutely hilarious and he did not let me down with his hosting and auctioning skills at the Discovery Ball this past weekend. The event Field Museum in Chicago and they raised $6 million in support of the American Cancer Society which was unbelievable. We got to hear from a cancer survivors who’s story was truly incredible. It was a wonderful event for a great cause and I would love to take some time away from the fashion on my blog for this post and for you to all donate to the American Cancer Society here.
I had the most amazing mother daughter trip this past weekend in St. Barth. I was able to trick my best friend in to thinking I couldn’t make the trip and then surprised her in the morning at the airport. It’s always great to have some mother daughter time along with my friends and their moms.
Spring has officially sprung and now its time for rosé all day! The Hampton Social in Chicago is one of my favorite places to go for some rosé with the girls, preferably some Whispering Angel. Side note: the lobster roll is a must try when you’re there.
It’s safe to say my mom and I have the same taste from clothes to vacations. I can always count on her to have something I can borrow to make my outfit better. She is the queen of white beach clothes and the look I am wearing over my St. Barth bikini is all hers. Thanks mom! We spent our first and last days at Nikki Beach..which makes it even harder to leave when the party is just getting started there. Hope to see you again soon SB xoxo
If you’re in to comfy dresses like I am you will definitely need to add this Alice and Olivia sweater dress to your closet for this fall. It’s nice and lightweight for packing but will also keep you warm into the winter!
Slide into fall with these amazing fur slides. These performance sandals once worn by soccer players off the turf have evolved into stylish slide that are embellished with fur and jewels. Rihanna has been spotted in the Puma ones and Kim K has been seeing wearing the Givenchy ones, so naturally, we all need to get a pair or two!
I’m always on the hunt for new comfy sweatpants that are still cute. I found these Sweet Pants in a blue army print that I’m in love with. They’re super comfortable but you can also be caught wearing them out of the house.
Dress: A.L.C.I had the honor of attending two fashion week events with Vogue this past weekend. The first was the opening of Saks Fifth Avenue Downtown, which I must say I was blown away. The store is huge and has several great pieces for the fall, I couldn’t resist the Alice and Olivia jacket. I ended the night by going to Pasquale Jones for dinner in Nolita. The food was amazing, I highly recommend trying the rigatoni. The next night was an event at Spring Place which was also home to some of the runway shows. The mini prosecco bottles with straws was such a cute idea for a cocktail party!
Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte has finally hit stores, but does that mean summer is over? I’m not ready to accept it and neither is the weather apparently. It’s been hotter than ever here in Chicago these past few days. But back to the PSL here are my fall necessities to go along with this delicious drink…when the times comes…
This past weekend was my first weekend back in Chicago for the year. It was great catching up with everyone and meeting up with some old friends that just moved to Chicago. I love hearing from friends where they go out in cities since online reviews aren’t always accurate and people have different tastes in what they like. I’m now going to included places in go in the cities in my outfits so if you think you have the same taste as me you can get an idea of where to go from someone similar to you. If you have any questions feel free to comment!
I started my weekend in the West Loop which is the new trendy area. I met some of my college friends at Lone Wolf. It was a nice little bar where you can actually talk to people but still have fun. We then headed over to Federales. It has a great patio that’s fun while the weather is still nice out, but the inside is just as great.
The next night I had dinner at MAD Social. The food was incredible! All the dishes were very interesting, my favorite being the chicken and churro waffles. I spent most of my weekend in the West Loop but ended Saturday night a little closer to me at Stout. I love this bar because it’s sort of like a hybrid of a bar and a club and the music is always great!
