Untitled Supper Club


TGIF! This week my boyfriend and I were lucky enough to get treated to a meal at Untitled Supper Club. We really enjoy our mid-week date nights (and our weekend date nights... and holiday date nights... really, any excuse to eat!) and this prohibition-inspired space was a perfect relaxed say to spend our Tuesday night. Click through for more food and outfit photos — I cannot get enough of this amazing 90s vintage backless giraffe tank I thrifted this month!

Dog Days of Summer

It's been one of those unintentional summer breaks. My schedule has been so busy that I've been 'gramming more than blogging — but in the 8+ years of Mini Penny, I suppose we're kind of used to those little breaks by now! The calendar has been packed with summer activities and microblading clients. So much so that I'm looking forward to taking most of next month off from tattooing and traveling to California with my boyfriend. Remember when I used to go to LA every 1-2 months? I miss those days! We're going to be spending a couple weeks in Palm Springs, LA, and San Diego, so I'll be getting my much-needed California fix soon!

Dinner and Drinks


Last week we had a lovely evening with dinner and drinks at City Hall Chicago. We've been maxing out our patio time and it was wonderful to be invited to City Hall to enjoy their beautiful space. Click through for more photos and outfit details for this casual date night look.

Universal Standard 1:1 Styling Session


Yesterday I had a chance to stop by Universal Standard's new Chicago location for a 1:1 Styling Session. I ended up with a few pieces that I love and tried on a lot of great items from their collection. Having this new spot in the city is exciting — it's a great community space and is very inviting. Click through to see more images of the new Universal Standard and then schedule your own 1:1 Styling Session.

Dazzled


I'm so excited to be partnering with ShoeDazzle to promote their Summer Shop! I started using ShoeDazzle way back around 2013, so being able to work with them has been a pleasant surprise. And of course, now that we're in the middle of summer, what better way to take advantage of the season than by stocking up on new shoes, clothes, and accessories!

The Good Kind of Blue


Anyone else feeling the effects of all this sunshine? Summer always has me feeling like I'm on Cloud 9, and this year is no exception. In fact, maybe this year more than most!

This Little Piggy


Is this just a good week for treats, or what? I've been eyeing these adorable animal-themed cones on Instagram for a while and finally decided to go get myself a pig (of course). Not only is it cute, but it was delicious too!

New Makeup Obsession // VT x BTS


If you've been following me on Instagram, you've noticed that I've been taking full advantage of the BTS pop-ups that have been happening around their recent two-day concert weekend in Chicago (more on that later, because oh my goodness it was amazing). This past weekend I went out to the suburbs to pick up more from the VT x BTS line and it never disappoints! Click through for more.

Just Add Popsicles


If horchata was perfect for yesterday, a dreamsicle pop is perfect for today. I hopped on over to Pretty Cool Ice Cream in Logan Square to pick up this treat and it did not disappoint! I'm a sucker for orange dreamsicle. What's your flavor?

Horchata, Sunshine, Hair Flip


We're kicking off summer with cute dresses and tasty drinks. On Saturday I made it down to the Mole de Mayo festival and enjoyed the summer temperatures with lots of good food. I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend!
