I got the Monday blues...
Monday's are so tough aren't they? We had a jammed weekend and I'm still recovering slowly with lotsa coffee. All the coffee, all the time. (this was also my first week without any wine or sweets due to a new fitness/diet routine so you could say that I'm a tad touchy as of late...more on that later!)
My husband's sister is moving back to Chicago from Cali which meant a great catch up visit plus a baby shower this weekend. Toss in the paint trip we made to finish off the master bedroom and a dozen errands in between and we're back at Monday morning...which is why this post is going live so late today. I couldn't even see my computer screen last night!
I'm keeping it simple today. This is my favorite summer errand look. The worlds comfiest tee paired with white denim, or any denim for that matter, with cute shoes and a statement necklace.
And my bejeweled sandals...it was a summer wardrobe must. They're under $70 for Pete's Sake!
I generally don't have a ton of time to get ready on weekend mornings because everyone wants to get out and enjoy the day. We're talking 7:30am bagel runs.
This Gorjana necklace is making many-an-appearance these days, too. It's the perfect piece. I love simple, gold necklaces. The mere fact that they can dress up a basic tee makes them a keeper in my book.

Sunday was so busy. I was cursing myself @ 7:30am but felt completely fulfilled by 5pm which is when Lola and I returned home. Talk about a full day! And while I typically prefer a lounge-y kinda Sunday; I cannot lie…we had a great mother/daughter day. Olivia had a Dad Day in the city with her uncle which was filled with arcade games, burgers and hanging out with my brother’s cats. That’s living her best life if you don’t know my Olivia.
It’s funny how travel affects your wardrobe choices. Less is more. Simple neutrals meant for mixing and matching. Sound familiar? Well, that’s how I pack my suitcase when I know a lot of walking is in store and comfort is paramount.
When people talk about Spring. I shrug. I dunno. Florals + me = no bueno. I’ve never been into ultra fem looks. I mean, I get it…they look lovely on many women, my friends even! Just not on me. I guess I consider myself more of a boot stomper. A ripped denim wearer. No frills. You get what you get.
While my wardrobe has decidedly taken a turn for neutrals; I still have my color moments and well, winter is still in the building if you live in Chicago. So…we back to sweaters. Does this green count as a neutral because I lurve it! I cannot tell you how many DMs and comments I received when I posted on IG so here are the Q+A’s:
Hi! Popping in to say, “I’m still alive!” Busy work weeks will do that to you! All that being said, I have some really fun pieces to share starting with this balloon sleeve top. I am somewhat of a late bloomer when it comes to online shopping destinations. I know what I like and I am loyal. Stumbling upon Vici was a happy accident. Thank you Instagram gods.
I punctuate every outfit I put together with shoes. It’s always the frosting on the proverbial fashion cake. I’m just a shoe girl and it’s always been that way.
It’s also true that I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect red boot for what seems like my entire life. An exaggeration, I assure you but it feels that way. It’s always when you’re not looking that you find exactly what you need. Match that with a budget freeze you have yourself the perfect problem. Until now…
Solopreneur. Mompreneur. Entrepreneur. They all point to the same title but what does it mean for you as you contemplate this roller coaster of a journey? I can sum it up in two words: wildly exhausting. Wild and exhausting don’t always have to have a negative connotation. I was a wild 20-something which = I had a heck of a lot of fun! Traveling Europe was exhausting which = fulfilling, enriching, my brain exploded with an appreciation for a different culture.
In case you don’t live in the Midwest, it is f-f-f-f-freezing here. Dressing cute is still a priority but warmth is everything and while I never thought I would be a pullover girl, I can tell you I have officially converted this week! And the best news of all is that the one I am wearing is a mere $20! You cannot beat that!
