Flowy

 Summer so far in Chicago has been nothing short of fabulous. I've put in some beach time, boating, rooftop drinks, rooftop pools, lots of grilling and enjoying the great outdoors! I'm thrilled its only June 9th!

Saturday Shopping

I spent part of my Saturday out and about shopping with my sister. We hit up a brand new Nordstrom Rack and I went wild! I could hardly contain myself when I went through the front doors. So many goodies! I ended up with these gorgeous goods but also nabbed some other items as gifts. My sister left with two gorgeous pairs of sandals. If you're in Chicago, I'd run to the Nordstrom Rack in Lincoln Park :)

Seahorse

  
I think spring may have finally arrived in Chicago! I've refused to wear socks since about mid April and I can say today when I watched the weather and it was going to be around 65 I might have jumped for joy. NO COAT NEEDED!
 
How amazing is this Shawlsmith London scarf?! It's super long and easy to wear multiple ways. I'm also obsessed with the fact that its covered in stamped seahorses. We all know I LOVE just about anything with a seahorse. I tied the ends together to make it a circle scarf, super quick and easy. It's lightweight and comfortable - these guys have tons of amazing designs in their spring collection. Check it out here.

Cooking in heels

Last night I felt like cooking up a storm. I hunted thru pages and pages on pinterest and found a couple of recipes that looked interesting, tasty and seemed pretty easy. I'm not the biggest fan of cooking chicken at home. It gets so boring and bland. I'm a girl who likes some flavor! I found the perfect recipe, you MUST try it!
 
 This herb and citrus oven roasted chicken is out of this world tasty. Full of flavor and pretty simple to make. I could have eaten this stuff for days!
 
It's no lie I love me some risotto. Mainly because is packed with cheese, and I LOVE cheese. Most of my risotto recipes remind me of summer, so I wanted to find something a little hearty (its -10 in Chicago) and bold enough that would work with my citrus chicken. This risotto recipe is made with red wine, I know! Crazy different. It's OH SO GOOD. I think I filled my plate 3 times. You will not regret giving this a try. Yum.

Wall Art

New wall art up in the apt. I've had the drawing for over a year and just never got my act together to buy a frame. I saw the print on etsy, and had to have it.

Fab. Forever Finds

I've been hunting for a perfect black pump. A pair that has to work with tights or jeans. These are basic enough to go with just about anything, but still have a little bit of flair.
