Boat Tour // Chicago

 Dress: Max Studio via TJ Maxx {recent, loving this dress online} | Jacket: Gap {similar} | Sandals: Steve Madden {old} | Bracelets: Michael Kors, Stella and Dot | Necklace: Baublebar {similar} | Glasses: Prada 

Last week we took the most amazing boat tour in downtown Chicago. It was such a wonderful way to see the city, I highly recommend it. We were also very fortunate to have great weather. Warm, but not unbearable. This light dress was an easy thing to throw on and walk all over the city. Flat sandals were a must.

On the farm

Dress: Prabal Gurung for Target | Shoes: Michael Antonio | Bracelets: Michael Kors, Stella and Dot | Ring: Kate Spade | Glasses: Prada 

Who wouldn't want to wear bold, bright colors on a farm? Quite the contrast to my brown and black friends behind me. We had a wonderful day visiting my husband's family on their farm in Wisconsin. Breezy day with good company.

Baked Avocado

I was on the road all day yesterday and I don't have much for you today - except leaving you with a delicious light summer recipe! Enjoy!

Baked Avocado

Slice avocado in long strips. Coat in flour, then egg, then breadcrumb (or panko, your choice!). Place on a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 20 minutes. I chose to dip in homemade marinara. Yummy.

Easy Peasy.

Pattern Crazed

Top: old | Skirt: Halogen {on sale} | Shoes: Steven Madden | Necklace: Caroline G | Glasses: Calvin Klein | Earrings: Nordstrom | Ring: Kate Spade

Now that summer has arrived I have been mixing bolder prints and much more color into my work wardrobe. Pencil skirts are always a staple, but try collecting a few in a brighter color. When using both print and color, I usually keep my shoe selection nude.

Farmer's Market

This weekend I went to the local farmer's market with my sweet friend Lindsay. It was scorching that inspired some festive bright colors and beads from my wardrobe. And something I could stay nice and cool in. We indulged in the most amazing chocolate croissant and white chocolate baguette from La Farm bakery. If you are in NC and haven't been to their store - you need to go. I also picked up some fresh peach jalapeno jam and used it to make paninis the next day!
