How is your week going so far?!

Well…you know how mine started off. (I shared the superglue incident of 2017 in yesterday’s post–haha!)

Luckily it’s looking up! It turned out to be a beautiful half of the day yesterday in Chicago and I even spent part of the day working outside on the porch! Seeing as there’s quite a bit of rain in the forecast this week I figured I should really get out while I can 😉





Sitting outside and observing the trees, this is really the first time I’ve noticed that it LOOKS like summer outside. (Previously it had FELT like summer, but the trees were still in the process of turning that deep, pretty green!) This makes me even more excited for Memorial Day weekend!

I’m really trying to kick my you-know-what into high gear with the wedding countdown nearing the 3 month mark–I found a new go-to for easy healthy meals when I don’t feel like cooking: Snap Kitchen! Have you heard of them? They’re super healthy-protein and veggie-heavy pre-made meals that you just pop into the microwave or oven. They have them at Whole Foods, too!

I’ve also been doing BBG and CorePower when it comes to workouts. My new mantra is to never miss a Monday workout. I’ve found that if you make yourself work out on Monday, it sets the tone for the week and then you’re motivated to keep going because you don’t want to mess up your workout hot streak!

Anyway–I’m today excited to share this adorable romper! Have you checked out anything from the Cupcakes and Cashmere line yet? I have a few favorites by her! (She’s one of my favorite bloggers and I’ve been following her since the beginning of time, so I love supporting her! Now, Joanna…you just need to come out with a clothing line, now ;-))

One note–based off the few items I’ve purchased so far, the C&C line runs LARGE, so definitely size down on anything you’re buying! Right now they sell this romper at both Shopbop and Bloomingdales. We snapped these photos when we went out to lunch for Blair’s birthday last week.

(I bravely wore this white romper to a lunch that involved hot sauce and tacos–aren’t you SO proud of me for not spilling?!)

These sandals (as you’ve likely noticed from their spotlight in many a blog post) are also one of my go-to’s right now. They are so budget-friendly and SO comfortable. I wore them out a few Saturdays ago for my friend Leigh’s bachelorette party in Florida and my feet didn’t hurt at all even after hours of dancing! (Also, please ignore the mosquito bites on my legs. Those are another souvenir from Florida. I swear I am a mosquito magnet!)

I loved the contrast of these boho statement earrings with the sweet eyelet features of the romper! (These actually belong to Shaheen–but you can snag them on both Nordstrom and Shopbop, too!)
