Mackinaw City

There's still so much I haven't shared from my Michigan Labor Day trip! My mom, Opal, and I had so much fun during our day in Mackinaw City — I couldn't help but get excited about this giant hot dog and a weird little cryptid store (see more on that in the post!).

The Aubree Jumpsuit

I'm still dying over how great this Aubree Jumpsuit by Wulfka is. In case you missed my last post about Wulfka, they're currently having a pop up at the Box Shops on Randolph Street. Stop by and try on some of these beautiful pieces!

You've Got Nail 90 // August Scratch Box

I can't believe it's been two months since I've shared nails. Whoa! That's very unlike me. Anyway, I suppose that means that these nails are now a little out of season — they were from the August Scratch Box. I loved the lemon pattern, and they matched my lemon romper perfectly for those warm summer days.

The Plaid Bomber

I found my new favorite bomber for autumn! My friend over at Wulfka made this incredible Danyell plaid bomber and I'm totally obsessed with it for the season. Wulfka is currently doing a pop up shop at the Box Shops on Randolph Street — so if your'e in Chicago, go see her and try on her lovely fall collection!

As we creep closer and closer to the holidays, I dream about adding glitter and sequins into my wardrobe. Don't worry,  I'm not in holiday mode yet — I'm a firm believer in enjoy Halloween 100% first! But I scored these glitter striped flares and just had to wear them ASAP!

Plus One

It's wedding season, which means it's time for all the beautiful dresses and +1 invites! I rarely ever wear green, but I fell head over heels for this draped number (pssst! Which is now part of the Shop My Closet Sale!).

Stay Cozy

Things that Opal and I both love are long walks on brisk mornings.

Autumn Bouquets at Flowers for Dreams

Flowers for Dreams is one of my favorite local companies and I was excited when they reached out to me about their new fall bouquets. They were sweet enough to send over the new Berry bouquet and I'm totally in love with it's purple and pink tones. If you're in Chicago or Milwaukee, be sure to head over to their site to learn more about the autumn options. Each purchase helps a charity of the month!

Spend Your Day in Bed

One of my favorite bougie brunch spots in the city is 3Arts! There's nothing much better than deciding to leave bed just to go lounge in ... more beds. I really enjoy exploring these place and its wonderful views.

An Evening at Z Bar

A huge thanks to Z Bar for having me last week for a lovely dinner! I finally had an excuse to wear this exquisite 70s dress that I thrifted (and hemmed, since the previously owner unevenly cut it short without finishing the edge!). It has incredible bubble sleeves and a super flattering neckline. You can see more on my Instagram! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

The Number 12

This might be one of my favorite photoshoots in a while. I headed downtown to catch a movie (if you are into thrillers/true crime stuff, check out 'Searching' before it leaves theaters!) and decided to take advantage of the cloudy day lighting. Isn't it weird that after living in Chicago for seven years, I still stumble upon blocks I've never seen before?

It's that time of year! Time to talk about all of my favorite beauty products as we enter the autumn season. Back at the beginning of summer, I showed you a heap of my go-tos, and this quarter, I have so many more fun items to share!

Randolph Street Market

This weekend was packed full of plans, but I'm happy that I got a moment to stop by Randolph Street Market in the West Loop for the Choice for Charity event.
