Here in the cold, I can’t help but think about how close spring is. I noticed last week at 5pm it was still light outside. I’m ready for the sun to stay out longer and my skin to finally look healthy again with the help of some vitamin D. I keep thinking about this place here called Richie’s Slush and that’s what I’m looking forward to the most. Warm nights with a slush or some ice cream in my hand- my favorite flavor is cherry.
I really do wish I could just hop on the plane and be somewhere warm with a drink in my hand. For now I’ll patiently wait for the trees to bloom and warm weather to roll in. Shop similar styles below.

I love that in-between time when it feels like summer is never going to end. But it’s also annoying when you can’t figure out what to wear because you already started buying cardigans and new jeans. Loft recently had a sale so I picked up some cute sweaters that work for this weird weather. I bought this tasseled tunic sweater and a crochet striped sweater. My jeans and shoes are from Zara. I’m normally a straight leg jean type of girl but during the summer they were becoming a pain to wear.
The thing I really love about simple looks is how comfortable you are. I also feel more like myself when I’m dressed like this. When I was younger I cared about how I looked when I would go out and I would always want to impress the crowd. Now I could care less about what people think about my outfit and how I look. I don’t get dressed for anyone but myself and I love it. Self-confidence is everything and once you feel comfortable in your skin you’ll be ok. Anyway, I hope you guys have a great week!!!

These shorts from Loft were a hit the first time I wore them. Throughout the day people complimented me on the print and it made me love my purchase even more. My boyfriend spotted them at the Loft in Chicago while I was trying clothes on. Along with the shorts I bought the peach dress and a black cardigan. Prints are fun to style but I like to keep it simple sometimes so I wore this Old Navy boyfriend shirt with the shorts.
I have very long legs for my height so when I’m wearing shorts they can look very “short” on me. These were the perfect length and cut which made them appropriate for work. Also, this style has a hint of purple in them which is my favorite color. I didn’t see this particular style on the website but there’s a variety of different prints to choose from. How do you like to style your printed shorts? Check out my Instagram for some inspiration.

My weekend in Chicago was amazing! The weather during the first few days was really bad. Fog and rain lasted throughout the day and it cleared up at night but it was still chilly. The last two days the weather was warm and the skies were clear. Day 1 and 2 we had deep dish pizza for dinner from Gino’s East. I would eat it every night if it wasn’t so heavy. The crust was so buttery and crunchy and the cheese was perfectly distributed throughout the whole pie. I can go on forever about the food but I’m putting together a Chicago to-do list soon.
On our way to downtown Chicago I stopped by Loft and saw this peach colored dress. It’s perfect for work (and brunch). The color is new to me but I needed to buy it. I think I’ll wear dresses a lot this summer so I can fully embrace the warm weather. I’ve started to gravitate towards workwear these past few months starting with my shopping spree on asos.com, I bought 4 dresses on a whim. Loft’s clothing is versatile and I think women of any age can find something they like there.
