FASHION FRIDAY // CELEBRATE WITH SEQUINS

Hey guys! Whenever I am in the mood to celebrate for any occasion SEQUINS are my go-to. The dress I am wearing is by DVF. I bought it last year for my wedding rehearsal dinner so it is very sentimental. I love pairing it with black, so I chose these shoes that I got on GILT and a black clutch from GiGi New York. Happy long Labor Day weekend everyone!

SHOP // GAP & GROUPON

As you all might know by now, Gap is a store that I shop at frequently. Just last week I rocked this denim dress and I recently got these swanky snakeskin sneakers. They have so many cute trendy styles at a fraction of the price which is a win for both my closet and my wallet. What makes this even better? Groupon has a ton of coupon codes that can help save even more. See what fun fall items I have on my wish list below:

LABOR DAY // VACATION CHECKLIST

First and foremost I want to thank the talented Lindsay Humes of White Oak Creative for giving my blog a bit of a summer facelift. She added a few new tweaks to create easier navigation throughout the site. It is now super easy to find previous posts by using the categories section found at the top. I am also proud to say that my blog is now mobile friendly (yay!). We also did some rearranging throughout the site including the social media icons (now at the top right), the Instagram shopping feed (now at the bottom), as well as a new “about the author” quick link (found on the right). I am super excited and want to thank Lindsay on her fabulous job!

Now onto today’s topic: Labor Day! This glorious holiday is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a long weekend at the lake. Below is a list of everything you need to enjoy the last days of summer in style.

RESTAURANT // LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN

The other day I tried a fun new french bakery in the Gold Coast called Le Pain Quotidien. What attracted me to this restaurant was their extensive menu that featured an array of breakfast items, quiches, tartines, salads, and desserts (pastries!). They had a variety of organic items (my fave) that you could either enjoy in their restaurant or take-away from their bakery section. I chose to eat in the restaurant area that had a combination of small tables, a communal table, and an outdoor area. Check out what my mom and I ate below:

I thought the atmosphere was warm + inviting. The open-faced sandwiches (tartines) looked amaze and I can’t wait to go back and try the roasted turkey & avocado one.  Make sure to check out this fabulous french bakery that currently has three locations: the Gold Coast (10 East Delaware Place), the West Loop (135 North Clinton Street), and Lincoln Park (1000 West Armitage Avenue). Bon appetit!
