Happy spring guys! Even though it doesn’t feel like spring in Chicago, you can still try to dress like it {with a coat of course}. I always find these monthly life lately posts to be extremely enjoyable to write. They are also a great way for me to show a more personal glimpse into my life. Today I’m sharing all about what I’ve been up to this past month including what I’ve bought, where I ate {lots of fun places this month!}, and some fun events I attended.

  I like to pull a lot of  pictures from my Instagram and Instagram Stories so make sure to follow along. So let’s get started…

Starting with my sweet cheeks of course! What else is new 😉 ?


We had a fun date night at Hugo’s Frog Bar. It’s actually one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago. Make sure to see ALL my favorite date night restaurants in this post.


I finally gave in and got myself some Golden Goose sneakers. I had to! They were on sale… Anyways you can shop my exact pair here and some other similar styles here + here.


I got a fun package from NYX cosmetics. I always love experimenting when it comes to makeup and trying new products. Aren’t these eyeshadow palettes so fun? You can shop all these products here.



Elle has been rocking some high ponies lately. 


I got a haircut FINALLY and decided to switch it up a bit for spring. If you need a new hairstylist in Chicago, check out Olivia at Charles Ifergan Salon. Mention my name and you can get $25 OFF your first haircut.


I went to the opening of Parlay at Joy District with friends. Don’t these burgers look delish?


Currently obsessed with this denim jacket for spring. Shop it here and see the full post on how I styled it here.


Twinning in pink with my bestie! Shop my cozy blush sweatshirt here.


Attended an amazing Women Empowering Women’s luncheon at Maple & Ash.


Pretty sunset. So happy about the time change…


Went to a fun event for Erborian at Drybar with my besties Monica and Peggy. How does our hair look?


My favorite Lux Royal Burger from LuxBar. If you’re going to waist the calories then it should be on this and truffle fries are obviously a must!


Elle is OBSESSED with bunnies. All day, every day.

Doing a little shopping at J.Crew. They have so many cute new styles for spring. I’m currently eyeing this jacket, this adorable striped shirt, and this cute top.


I went to a fun cooking class with my mother-in-law at the Carlton Club. I now know how to make brick chicken and can’t wait to try to recreate it at home.


The final product.
