Can you believe it’s still spring? I’m so ready for the heat, but in the meantime I’m sticking with layered looks and always bringing my denim jacket with me. These pictures are actually from a few weeks ago, but considering the weather hasn’t changed I figured I’d finally share them. They were taken during a great girls weekend with my friend Kayla, who was visiting from Royal Oak.Since Kayla’s husband was off at a bachelor party, we were totally prepared to do all the girly things. From afternoon tea at The Allis, doughnuts at Stan’s, shopping and happy hours, we couldn’t have asked for a better few days together. I recently got this green midi skirt from Loft and know it’s going to be a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve been trying to find cute pieces that I can style for both at work and outside of work. Since my work dress code is pretty casual, I get stuck wearing jeans and a shirt far too often. I’m definitely in a better mood when I put a little effort into styling a fun and trendy outfit instead of the same old, same old every day. Let’s hope I can keep it up!These sneakers have also been on repeat lately. From jeans to skirts and dresses, they go with so much! I’ve been considering buying the same exact pair in white, too, because they’re comfortable. Who else finds something they love and buy it in every color?Denim jacket by Abercrombie & Fitch | Black shirt from Nordstrom | Green skirt from Loft | Black sneakers from Adidas

And some fun photos from girls weekend!It’s pretty dark at the Allis so the lighting isn’t great, but loved spending the weekend with Kayla!
If you haven’t gone to afternoon tea at the Allis, it’s such a fun time with girlfriends! Champagne, tea and sweets, what more could you ask for? My go-to spot that all people need to visit while in Chicago…. Stan’s Donuts, duh!
