Sunny Pants

Sometimes you just want to be comfortable. There's nothing more classic than jeans and a t-shirt. I wanted to brighten things up a bit with my fun yellow jeans. I paired it with a neutral grey v-neck and added some fun accessories to keep the look cute and casual.

Skulls

Say hello to my newest handbag. One side is scattered with these amazing little skulls, you all know I have a thing for skulls. Its a perfect size bag and thanks to a fab. friend it's now sitting happily in my cloest. She was out shopping and sent me a picture, which of course I freaked and had to have it!

Cooking in Heels

The boyfriend and had a little date night and took a pasta making class. We learned so much, the food was delish and had a great time. If you're in Chicago I would highly recommend taking this class or any class at Cooking Fools.

Getting ready to go, cooking with wine is always more fun.

Rolling out the pasta.

Super jazzed about the result

Ravioli filling

Oh yeah, I made that!

Chicago Summer

The boyfriend and I had an awesome date night. We hit up Jazzin' at the Shedd,  live jazz music, access to all of the exhibits, all while sipping a cocktail. It was a fabulous time! I will say my favorite thing to see were the jellies (pic above). It was a humid night but we enjoyed the great views of the Chicago skyline and watched the Navy Pier fireworks. Love this Chicago summer!

Summer Sequins

I was watching the bachelorette last night. (Yes, I love the show.) Anyways... I was watching and became totally obsessed with the sequin dress Emily was wearing on one of the dates. I knew right away that it was AllSaints. Love their stuff but its a tad out of my style me cheaply budget. So to the google search I go and that's what I found this beauty. It will be making its way into my closet asap.

Year of The Martini


I decided about a month ago that since I'm in my later 20's it was time I started to drink martini's. I'm not talking the fluffy girly drinks, I'm talking classic cocktails. I found a great list of 'Chicago's Best Martini's' and it pointed me to the M Avenue Lounge at the Allerton Hotel on Michigan Avenue. The boyfriend and I made it a date night and Friday we toasted to the first of many classic martini's. This is going to be a fun adventure, Cheers!

The Dirty Martini and My Vodka Gimlet

Loved the gimlet, it will be on my re-order list. I've learned I'm not a fan of the dirty.
M Avenue Lounge had a great atmosphere, delish crab cakes and bar snack mix, I seriously wanted to get the bar mix in a to-go bag. It was a great place to kick-off my year of the martini.
Any suggestions for my next stop?
