Los Angeles


Back to our California trip! We ended up spending quite a few days in Los Angeles — surprisingly one of my favorite cities! Have you been to LA? When I was in high school, I wasn't a fan. But as I spent more time here, I really fell for it. Now I love it for all of the food options, shopping, and all around weirdness.

Joshua Tree


After we left Palm Springs in the evening, we headed to our AirBNB just north of Yucca Valley. When searching for a place to stay, we found lots of beautiful, modern, open-style homes on hillsides that really hit me right in my heart. They were beautiful. I was ready to pull the trigger when I found an odd, vintage, small camper off an isolated dirt road. Was this the perfect stay for our desert night? Yes, yes it was.

Palm Springs


I love Palm Springs. It's been a few years since I've been here, but I'm so excited that we started our vacation on this note. We flew into Palm Springs so that we could spend our first day exploring this dreamy little city — I am in love with the architecture, plants, and all-around vintage vibes.

Hotel Monaco // #StayHuman


Earlier this week, we were offered a stay at the new #StayHuman suite at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Downtown Chicago. It was a wonderful stay and a truly unique type of room that aimed to connect guests through writing notes and taking photos.

Chicago Botanic Garden


Oh boy, I have so many posts to catch up on. The boyfriend and I had really extended ourselves for the last bit of summer. Between taking a month off of work, travel, and exploring things while we still have sunshine, we have been busy. Now that fall is here and things are slowing down (sort of!) and I can finally get some looks queued up! Let's start with this wonderfully 70s-orange look that is almost entirely Madewell. We visited the Chicago Botanical Garden— a first for me!

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.
