spotted in chicago

Free People thermal, Levis jeans, Target oxfords, F21 and vintage jewelry, vintage Coach bag, "Humanity" bracelet c/o Jewelmint 

Here are just a few of the photos I snapped on our spontaneous girls' trip to Chicago last weekend! This was a simple city-walking outfit for a sunny, breezy day. I was so happy to be able to wear my newest jewelry piece; a bracelet by Jewelmint. I love the simplicity, and the lovely message on the back that reads "To love, to live, and to give and give." Such a great phrase to read daily! Can't wait to show you more pieces by Jewelmint in upcoming posts.

A while ago, I won a prize package from Birchbox, and was lucky enough to score a pair of Cynthia Rowley-designed nail strips! I applied these just in time for a seventies banquet I attended a couple weeks ago, and wore them for about a week afterwards. I loooove the pretty pattern, and was really happy with how easily they went on. I have a few other colors of nail strips to try--can't wait to get the technique down!

Still have lots to share about my weekend in Chicago--stay tuned, and  happy Frrriiiidddaaayyy!

P.S. Congrats to Emily Malone on her lovely little baby boy :)
