1. Statement Necklaces
I'm really feeling statement necklaces this week. I just got home from work and stood next to this woman with a thick, gold necklace that had me running home to start online shopping. Since clothes will start to get simpler with the summer season, a great statement necklace can help keep your look pulled together and fashionable.


2. Outdoor Seating
Speaking on this "summer season", I'm so happy to start eating outside again. The entire restaurant experience is elevated when you can sit at a sidewalk cafe and take in good food and the sights of your own city.  My favorite meals to eat outside are brunch and happy hour, which I consider a meal :)

3. My View
Since I recently switch up positions at work, I was lucky enough to get a desk next to an amazing view of Chicago. My iPhone does it no justice, but this is what I get to stare at when the work day gets dull. 

4. My Parents Birthday Card
How cute is this?
And so FREAKING true!  

5. Blooming Flowers
All of a sudden all of the flowers started popping up out of nowhere. It's such a welcomed surprise!
6. My Dad
Takin' in his favorite view with Joel
It's his birthday today, and I'm lucky enough to get to go out to lunch with him today.
I love time that I get to spend with just my dad, because it's rare in a big family that you get one parent alone. My dad and I are very similar to each other and have grown up to be great friends. I hope he has an amazing birthday!

What have you been loving this week?


  1. What an amazing view you have from your desk! I wouldn't mind looking out at that all day, everyday. I also would never get any work done. haha

    Love those necklaces too - I wish I was good at wearing fun accessories like that, but I never seem to be able to pull it off. I always stick to my tried and true everyday jewelry.

    Happy Birthday to your dad!!

  2. What a great view!!! I am in love with statement necklaces too!!!!

    You are loving some amazing things today! Hope you have had a great Wednesday!

  3. I like your list!! And I think it's awesome that you have Chicago right out your window at work. You're so lucky. :)

  4. I'm loving those necklaces!!!

  5. Those necklaces are great! And I totally agree about the eating outside thing. We cooked hamburgers on the grill tonight and now it really feels like summer is around the corner.
