:: Meanderings from life + the interwebs ::

:: Let the sun kiss you :: 
Studded Hearts' Life on the Water post makes me want leave the city, hop on a boat and sail the ocean. I'm dreaming of sun-kissed freckles, sea-swept hair, relaxed jeans-and-tank-top outfits and sunscreen as the main accessory. To channel my nautical dreams, next week I have a boat-inspired outfit post lined up that includes a handsome guy that I've been wanting to feature on here for a while.

:: Remember What's Important ::
This week was so busy. On top of work, my nights were overflowing with activity. Lily and I saw the musical Big Fish after she received impromptu free tickets, Whitney & Carolyn joined me for dinner followed by the opening night of a local Chicago play, and my bestie Jess and I enjoyed a home cooked meal while catching up. I fell behind on this little blog a bit, but looks like the internet survived without me so it's all good.

:: Play With Your Hair :: 
I loved this fishtail version on Grace's sister - it's perfectly messy and looks adorable. Definitely will be trying over the weekend. 

:: Dye For This ::
DIY hand-dyed napkins is such a fun way to decorate your table. Elsie and Emma's creativity never fails to impress.

:: Click Through ::
:: Did you hear?! Maya is moving to Chicago and will be tackling the advertising & social media world with me at DDB. It's amazing what relationships through blogging can lead you to, isn't it? We're excited to have her on board!

:: The Randolph Street Market is having a summer preview this weekend and I can't wait. The last time I went this DIY necklace was created from the my vintage finds.

:: An interesting take on how imagery is changing how we shop.

:: "When someone asks you to lunch, say yes." This article is simple, to-the-point, and focused on something that I firmly believe in: kindness.

Care to dance? Follow my lead.
