New Shirt, New Beginnings




Happy Spring, loves! It's still cold here in Chicago per usual, but I've been trying to bring the Spring vibes through clothes and I've been loving this Shein Asymmetrical top! I thought it was so unique and a great piece for any outfit. Pair it with jeans (over 30% off!) and OTK boots (on sale for $45!!) like I did or a cute skirt and booties if you're already having warmer temps! The shoulder detail creates a feminine touch and I love the structure and sophistication it brings to any look!

This weekend was a special one as we celebrated Barrister's Ball, aka Law School Prom! Kollin and I have never attended before due to traveling or work commitments, but we made it a point to go the last one of his law school career. We had such a great time and it was so amazing seeing all of our friends and celebrating their hard work throughout law school. It also didn't hurt that I got to wear the amazing Marchesa dress below thanks to Rent the Runway! 

We are both so excited for the end of law school and for Kollin to start his legal career. With all fun changes coming, we are also moving in April! Today I wore this look as we went furniture shopping and checked in on the new condo. We are so excited to be moving to our new neighborhood and start decorating!


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and has a great start to the week tomorrow!

Our Trip to DC + A Travel Outfit


Happy weekend, loves! Going back to work this week was tough after Kollin and I  spent a long weekend in Washington, DC! We had the best time and visited his family in Phildelphia too for a day. As soon as I received this Shein Jacket I knew it would be the perfect travel outfit! Oversized, cozy, yet a chic flair of embellishments made it stylish.

The perfect mix of casual and chic, this embellished jean jacket is an easy mix and match piece with anything in your closet. Pair it with jeans, leggings or even a fun Spring dress and sneakers. For our long day of travel I paired it with leggings, a long sleeve black sweater, my favorite Cubs hat and a pair of Nikes for comfort. 

Our trip was so much fun and we saw everything! From The National Gallery of Art to see the Jackson Pollock exhibit, all the monuments, The Holocaust Museum, National Archives and delicious resturants, it was such a memorable trip. We then drove to Philly and stopped for cheesesteaks before spending the weekend with Kollin's family. 

After a long work week, we are taking it easy this week and #adulting by registering our new car and prepping for our upcoming move in April! We are staying in the city, but headed to a new neighborhood - can't wait to share more with y'all Happy St. Patrick's Day!
