It’s no secret by this point that off-the-shoulder tops are super in for spring. I would even go so far as to predict that they’re going to carry over into summer very nicely. This particular top is such a style steal. Gorgeous, flowy, a stunning color, and everything else you could want in the perfect off-the-shoulder look for this season.
I’ve linked this as well as several similar tops (also style steals) below the photos.

I’ve been feeling in a rut lately. I couldn’t even begin to describe it if I wanted to, though. It’s this restlessness as though I’m waiting for a million things to happen and none of them can happen yet. Which, to be fair, there are a bunch of things waiting to happen (read: wedding. October. ahh!) but there feels like more lately. I blame this Chicago spring. I’m ready for it to be warm and sunny but we have to make a pit stop at chilly and rainy first and I’m just not about it.
Mental health goal for April is run. I’ve got Couch to 5k on my phone, I’ve got a plan, I’m ready to go! Let’s see if I actually stick to it. So far, everything has been going well. I just need the weather to snap into summer and I’ll be good to go!
This necklace is from a site called ILYMIX. They have amazing statement necklaces and stacking rings and so much more. And if you use code “stile20” at checkout, you get 20% off your shiny new pieces! Sounds like a sweet deal to me. I’ve loved the quality of everything I’ve worn so far so I can solidly say they’re great.
Disclaimer: I received this piece and two others for promotion.

Springtime means it’s time to break out the sandals and it’s finally acceptable to eat ice cream outside again without shivering your butt off! So that’s exactly what we did, venturing to George’s Ice Cream and Sweets in Andersonville! They have so many amazing flavors, including a few vegan friendly ones on rotation. Hands down, my favorite ice cream parlor in Chicago!
These sandals were perfect for our springy adventure as they’re an amazing color and offer some killer fringe detail. The best part? They’re from Target so they won’t break your budget! Details down below.

“If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in the library?” -Lily Tomlin
Getting my lazy bum out of bed and to work on a Sunday can be a trial. But with the help of a cute outfit (and some coffee), being a Sunday Librarian is a much easier feat to tackle.
This is totally another great way to use the separate pieces from the two piece set I wore to the Be Buddha Jewelry Launch Party. The skirt is just perfect for work, particularly given its length. As much as I love shorter skirts, they are just not suited for library work.

Sunday evenings are always a fun night to go out to eat for me. Not a lot of people are out, restaurants are usually slightly empty, and it’s a great way to regroup and relax before the start of a new week.
The tradition harkens back to my childhood a little. Every Sunday night, my grandparents, parents, and me would go out to dinner. We had a list of old favorites and occasionally went to try new places. It let us catch up with each other, stay involved in each other’s lives, and really bond. While it doesn’t happen every weekend anymore and it hasn’t been that group in years, I still get a glorious blast of nostalgia when I’m eating out on a Sunday night.
This top is one of my favorite finds of the summer. “Closets are for shoes, not lesbians.” It’s super duper soft, has a really unique open back, and offers a statement I stand very strongly by. I just love it! It’s by vfish designs, who I found at Andersonville’s Midsommar Fest in June.
Zoe particularly enjoys going out to eat with us and we’re always searching for places with dog friendly outdoor seating. The phone call “Can I bring my dog to your patio?” is a frequent one in our household.
