Hello Sunshine! We missed having you around Chicago. This was my first weekend in Chicago in over a month and I was happy to be welcomed with warm temperatures and sunshine, now let’s just keep the momentum going.
So what have I been up to, you ask? Well my brother joined the adult world and is now officially a college graduate (parents = thrilled), two of my amazing friends got married this month (most beautiful brides ever), and a whole lot of little positive things happening on the career front (never, ever take a job in Human Resources. Like ever.) that have me excited. The biggest life lesson these past few weeks have taught me? You just can’t do it all.
My little corner of the internet will be a sporadic this summer. I’ve come to realize that at the end of the day my friends and career are far more important. Priorities shift and you have to nurture those things that are the most important to you. This however has given me the biggest case of FOMO; I wish I was able to attend all the amazing events happening in Chicago but alas I’ll live vicariously through the amazing bloggers who are seriously making it all work. teach me your ways!
So on that list of things that didn’t get done this weekend – laundry. While I usually gravitate toward bright and color dresses in the summer, this weekend I went a different route. This skirt has been a serious closet staple of mine (styled for the winter) worn at least once a week. I picked up this tank over the weekend and loved how the two items paired so well together. It may not scream summer but it’s a great way to add a chic twist on your summer style.
