I hope you had a fabulous weekend! We came back to Chicago from Hawaii and sadly we came back to rain. Although, we are happy to be back, we missed our baby, and after being on the beach for 7 days we started to get island fever. It was a great trip, we did some surfing (I was so sore afterwards), jet skiing, hiking, and of course some major relaxing!
On the outfit – this is more a business casual look. I paired high waisted straight leg trousers from Zara, with one of my favorite blouses from Forever 21, and a light jacket from Asos. I dressed it up with a necklace from Kenneth Cole, and basic black pumps.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a fabulous Mothers Day. Yesterday was my very first mothers day as a mom! I got a handbag and flowers from my husband, and daughter, and a necklace from my mom, and sister! It was an overall pretty relaxing day!
This weekend my husband and I had a lunch date with a few friends of ours. We went to Kingsbury Street Café in Lincoln Park. The food was delicious, and the chocolate muffins are to die for! To lunch I wore this look I call the “Polka Dot Blues”. If you can’t tell by now – I love jackets over everything. I think they give an overall polished look. I paired these blue pants from Akira, with a black polka dot blouse from Zara, and topped it off with a Jacket from H&M. The necklace I am wearing is from Lauren Lombardi.

Happy May everyone!
Yesterday my daughter turned 7 months! Where has the time gone? I feel like it was yesterday when I was rushing to the hospital with my husband because I was in labor. These last 7 months have been the happiest and toughest in my entire life. Happiest, because the joy a child brings to your life is amazing. Coming home from a crazy day at work to see my daughters smiling face is wonderful! Toughest, because having a child turns you life upside down, and everything becomes a balancing act. I think the hardest thing is that your time to do things for yourself is so limited. Sometimes I wish I had the ability to be in two places at once – like at home with my husband and daughter – and out shopping at the same time! Oh well, I guess this is why they call motherhood the most challenging job in the world. If I figure out a way to be in two places at once I will let you know my secret!
I wore this outfit as a relaxed business casual look to work this week. I love cropped trousers pants, because you’re able to really show off your shoes! These pants are the Slone fit from Banana Republic. I paired it with a blouse from Zara, and my favorite jacket from Jcrew.
I’m so happy it’s starting to get warmer out! We can finally walk outside without a warm puffy jacket! This weekend my family and I got to enjoy the sun and test out our new camera! I got the hubby to take some pictures of my look!
When I moved to Chicago 3 years ago, I fell in love with Akira. For those of you who don’t know – Akira is Chicago based clothing store that has some awesome finds! I’ve been searching for some reasonably priced black faux leather leggings and of course I found them at Akira! I paired it with a white blouse from H&M (here is one that is similar.) Finally, I topped it off with this awesome jacket from Jack by BB Dakota .
My accessories include this fabulous necklace from Kenneth Cole, my favorite bag from Mulberry, and black pumps from Ninewest.
I’m so excited to be sharing some of my awesome finds with all of you!
Have a great week!
