Happy February everyone! Is it just me or did January just go flying by? 2018 has started off great minus the super cold temperatures in Chicago…but that’s life and winter. Right?

Today I’m sharing a bit about what we’ve been up to this past month. Even though it’s been freezing outside, we have still been able to get out of the house and have some fun!

I always find these life lately posts a way to share a more personal glimpse into my life. If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen a few of these already… So let’s get to it!

Happy 2018! Hope everyone is having a great year so far…Isn’t Elle’s sweater super cute? You can shop it ON SALE here.


What I love so much about after the holidays is that everything goes on MAJOR SALE! I scored these adorable booties for only $24! They come in three different colors and you can shop them here.


Elle is so over the cold. When is spring!?


Lunch with my bestie at one of our favorites: Big Star!


A few of my favorite winter essentials: comfortable deconstructed jeggings, a cozy pullover, and adorable shearling boots.


Elle had her modeling debut with Nurture Life and I can’t wait to share more adorable photos later this month. She worked with the talented Brittany of britography and in my opinion did an amazing job!


If you live in Chicago then you need lots of coat options. Love this one so much. See the full post here.


I always love trying new makeup and recently got a few new goodies from Clarins. Shop the eyeshadow palette in lovely rose here, the lip balm in plum here, and the SOS primer in lavender here.


Just a casual Monday… Isn’t Elle’s winter hat so cute? It’s from the Gap.


Nike and Nordstrom did a little collab and I got a chance to design my own sneaker. It’s such a cool concept and you can shop their entire collection here.


I just love her! Shop her faux fur coat ON SALE here and her cute little hat here.


Another shot of my fabulous winter shearling boots. See how I style them in this post and this post.


Elle shared all of her favorite toys for a one year old in the blog. Thankfully they have kept us busy all winter long. See the full post here and shop her sweater ON SALE here.


Bundled up and ready to roll.


A close up of the winter coat I wear daily. It is kind of sold out everywhere, but I found it here and you can see the full post here.


We are teaming up with Room & Board to redo Elle’s play area and I’m super excited about it! I’ll be sharing more next week, but here’s a little sneak peek of the rug we picked out with the help of you guys! Aren’t Intsa Story polls the best?


We visited the Lincoln Park Zoo on one of the warmer days. Elle loves farm animals and had fun visiting the cows.


My sweet little girl loves to read! We are working on a new post where we will be sharing her top 10 favorite books. More on that soon…


Elle and I had an adorable twinning moment on the blog and you can see the full post here. Both our coats are on major sale and you can shop mine here and hers here.

The Valentine’s Day cards I designed on Shutterfly. It was so easy and always way cuter than store bought ones. What do you think?


I love leopard and am obsessed with this coat. See the full post here.

    Love the photos of Elle!! She gets just cuter and cuter each day!! That eyeshadow palette is so pretty and I may need to get a pair of those jeggings. Next time you are at the zoo maybe we can meet up. 🙂

    Glad you were able to stay warm and have some fun even though it was cold outside. We had some days that the wind chill was -30/-40.

    Btw, I love love love that new rug in the playroom. I love the design that you picked out.

    I have to know where you got that crib! I don’t have kids, but lately I’ve been obsessed with putting together a nursery on Pinterest! Those booties are to die for, but they’re sold out in my size! 🙁 Thank you for sharing!
