Kentucky Derby at the University Club








  



Hats so dramatic they're called fascinators, bowties on the gentlemen, and red roses all around. Is there anything that's not to love about the Kentucky Derby? Patrick and I ventured out to the University Club on Summit to watch the race of the year among the most dapper of crowds. The event was hosted by Artful Living Magazine. A definite highlight of the party? We enjoyed a zippy little ride in a gorgeous Bentley convertible. Let's just say the hat took a break on our cruise about town.

Shop our outfits:
On me-
lilly pulitzer neon janice shift dress via melly || white derby hat via afternoon crowns || gold bracelet via jcrew (Only $16! And it goes with everything.)

Meet me at the Fair









HAPPY FRIDAY AND HAPPY MAY! There's just so much happiness going around today I can hardly stand it. So I wore an outfit to match. Because what's more happy than pink heels, florals, & Kate Spade sunnies!? Also I feel like I should be heading to the fair with Allie Hamilton in this outfit.

Have I told you how much I love my hair colorist?? I've been going to Rae at Haus Salon in the North Loop for the last several months or so and have been wildly impressed. I just went again yesterday! She's fun to talk to and I'm always super happy with my hair when I leave. Couldn't recommend her more highly if you're looking for someone to color your locks.
Also! Don't forget, tomorrow, Saturday May 2 I am going to be hanging at Lily & Violet from 1-4pm. I would LOVE to meet you and answer any spring shopping/styling questions you may have! Plus there will be apps & Prosecco. Enough said, right? 

Shop today's outfit:
milly for kohl's striped shirtdress || milly for kohl's floral pencil skirt || pink heels via lord & taylor c/o || michael kors gold watch || sloane ranger white bangle c/o || kate spade sunglasses

Classic Tomboy









 When I wear things like this, I get reactions from people like I'm basically wearing my pajamas in public. But I really do go casual sometimes and I really do like it. Not quite casual enough to actually wear pajamas in public (except every once in a while when a midnight trip to Walgreen's for Ghirardelli chocolate is absolutely necessary).

Sundays at the Conservatory













This is one of my favorite spots in the city. It's a wildly beautiful conservatory. I adore all of the vibrant colors and the medley of flowers in the garden. It's undeniably inspiring and the perfect place to stop and smell the roses because as they say, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.

I'd been looking for a pair of floral "flouncy shorts" for a while and finally stumbled on these in Dry Goods.  The lace detailing on the hem sealed the deal. I kept the look in the pastel family by pairing the shorts with a light yellow shirt. Always a fan of pattern-mixing, the stripes were a fun contrast with the floral. 

Shop today's outfit:
kendra scott pink necklace c/o || striped yellow tunic via talbots || floral shorts via dry goods || metallic gold clutch || white heels

A Day in my Pumpz











Yesterday I took over the Pumpz Co Instagram and strutted by Tory Burch tote all around the city for #ADayinMyPumpz. Pumpz is a quality shoes, handbag and accessories store in the Galleria in Edina Minnesota. They carry Tory Burch (obvi!), Hunter, 3.1 Philip Lim, and Karen Walker, just to name a few. I love that I can shop my favorite designers without the commercial vibe of the big department stores. The staff is so attentive and welcoming. I totally recommend a visit if you haven't been or haven't been in a while!

Shop today's outfit:
navy tory burch tote via pumpz c/o || dvf green tropical shirt via nordstrom || white shorts via jcrew (now on sale for $30 with code TIMETOSHOP) || jcrew metallic gold sandals || jcrew statement necklace || gingham belt via brooks brothers (50% off right now, only $20!)
