Today has been absolutely beautiful in Chicago and I’m making the most of it! After a wonderful holiday weekend in New Orleans, I came back inspired by the city with it’s colorful homes and people. If you haven’t made your way down to “The Big Easy” yet, put it on the top of your travel bucket list. So.Much.Fun!

I picked up this pink shift dress (on sale!) for my trip and absolutely love the bright pop of pink color. Since New Orleans is a walking city, I paired this dress with my new shoe obsession – sperry’s. These sneakers are literally the best! Fingers crossed Chicago gives us another sunny and beautiful weekend so I can pull out this dress again.

On Trend: All In White

After an amazing weekend away in New Orleans, the long Memorial weekend was just what we needed to officially get this summer season started! It’s all about keeping this light and bright, so what better way to do that than by adding some white to your wardrobe. This ultra chic color for summer, especially for those coordinated enough to keep it clean, is the ultimate way to take a simple day outfit into the night. I’m loving these Kate Spade sunglasses that are sure to enhanced the color of my skin.

So how was your Memorial weekend?

Kiwi Capiroska

Pinspiration: Kiwi

The best part of summer is when some of the best fruit comes into season. Since I was a child my favorite summer fruit has been the kiwi. When I was a little my dad would peel and freeze chunks of kiwi fruit to eat later that night as a sweet frozen treat. It was my favorite way of cooling down during those summer months.

Kiwi’s are back in season and I’ve been buying them up whenever I see them on sale in the grocery store. I’ve been inspired to do a little more with this delicious fruit by trying these desserts and cocktail recipes. I’m personally looking forward to trying the kiwi margarita below – summer never looked so delicious!

If you guys haven’t already noticed, I absolutely love this chambray shirt. It’s my go-to top on most days of the week and I love jus how versatile it can be. The lace skirt trend has been on my radar for quite some time but since I rarely have a reason to wear something so fancy, I’ve been hesitant to pick one up.

Last week I found this on lace skirt on super sale and decided to give it a go. Paired with my comfy denim shirt and wedges, it was the ideal outfit to wear to a start up networking event I attended. This lace skirt is definitely a keeper!

On Trend: New Orleans

I’ve been living the jet set life these past two months and this weekend is no different, I’m off to “The Big Easy” – New Orleans! This will be my second time visiting this vibrant city, my first time was during Mardi Gras and I’m excited to see the city in a different light. If anyone has any tips on things we should check out, please let me know!

It’s suppose to be in the high 90’s this upcoming weekend and I’m having a terrible time trying to figure out what to pack. Looking for inspiration, I’m reminded just how vibrant New Orleans can be. I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of vibrant pants to take on the trip and these from Dorothy Perkins will hopefully be the jackpot.

Who else has been to New Orleans?
