Happy Monday!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! It was a pretty good one here in Chicago. It was really nice to relax after what seemed like the longest 5 day stretch, ever. I think the first week back at work after the holidays can be typically filed under “worst week of the year.” Especially when paired with a snowpocolypse.



Luckily, the tables finally turned and the snow started melting thanks to a 39 degree heat wave that came through on Sunday! I figured that was a great excuse to break out my new tutu skirt I picked up at Topshop a couple weeks ago. It’s been way too cold to bear any skin at all these past couple weeks, so I was excited to be able to wear finally it for a shoot. This skirt brings an element of fun and sweetness to just about anything you pair with it. I love wearing it with knee socks! If you don’t have one already, I would highly recommend it be your next purchase!
