Life, Lately

Happy Monday, ladies! We are still enjoying vacation - it's been so nice to relax outside of the city. My best friend's wedding was this weekend, and we had such a blast  - she was seriously stunning (see photos below), and the wedding was a huge success! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Can you believe there's only a couple days left of June? This summer has been flying by! It hasn't even really felt like summer yet thanks to Chicago's crazy weather. We've had some nice sunny days but there's been a lot of storms and this past week the city has been covered in fog! Hopefully July will bring some better weather so we can enjoy the outdoors! Any fun plans for the weekend?My grandma is flying in as I type - we're going to do some shopping today and explore the city! Have a great weekend dollies!

On The Dock Of The Bay

Hi guys! I'm still having a great time on vacation - we've been relaxing a lot, swimming a little, and spending most days on the dock or in the boat. It's definitely a nice change of pace from the city. I finally received this jumpsuit I ordered a while ago from Nordstrom, and I love it, but I had to exchange it for a smaller size - it runs a little large. 
Today's look is my new favorite bathing suit (bikini version here) and denim shorts - basically my uniform since being on vacation. I also posted this one on Instagram, and had a lot of questions about it (just went on sale today!!). I'm loving one-pieces lately, you can throw on shorts and you've got an outfit. I'm heading to my best friend's wedding tomorrow and Saturday, have a great weekend loves!

Hope you ladies are having an amazing week! I've been having a great time on vacation - soaking up great weather on the lake. I picked up this dress from The Oxford Trunk a while ago, and finally got a chance to wear it. It's the perfect dress for vacation - comfortable, breezy, and can easily be worn from day to night. I paired mine with these flats for a casual dinner, but it would be great with these for a fancier night out. I get so many questions about these sunnies - they are by Celine, and you can buy them here. My necklace is from Lilli + Tori, I love the shark tooth with the gold. It's currently sold out, but you can buy a similar one here. I'm off to a quick workout before we spend the day on the lake - we've been blessed with beautiful weather, and I'm so thankful for that! Xx

Obsessing over this outfit! I really wanted this denim romper from Revolve - hoping they restock!

Have a great Monday loves! 

Fit Friday - Favorite Fitness Gear & Current Playlist

Happy Friday babes! I am super busy today packing and heading to the airport later for a trip to my parent's house. I'm so excited - I haven't been home since Christmas. Next weekend is my best friend's wedding (stay tuned for photos), and the following week is the 4th of July - the absolute best time to be in my hometown! There will be boating, fireworks, and R&R - sounds perfect right now, be sure to follow along on instagram. For today's 'Fit Friday' I wanted to share my favorite workout gear, and the playlist I'm currently staying motivated with. Andy posted her playlist a few weeks ago, and I always love seeing what other people are listening to, and discovering new songs for myself, so I thought I'd share mine with you today. Not all of the songs are brand new, but they all get me pumped up - it's definitely a wide variety! First up though, is my favorite workout gear.

I just bought these shoes - while they are not the best for running, they are great for any other gym activity (lifting weights, stair master, elliptical), and they are seriously so cute! They can be worn to the gym or on the street - I bought them in red. I think I'll be wearing them all summer long!

These are my go-to pants. They are so comfortable (don't stretch out or lose elasticity), and they last for years. I still wear a pair I bought 4 years ago - they hold up through the wash, I'm not sure I'll every stray from these. Has anyone tried Zella workout pants? I'm dying to try some, I've heard great things - I'm really loving this pair. This jacket is great too - I love a great jacket to throw on after your workout to run errands.

My shoes I wear running are these. Meggan has them too, and I know she loves them as well. My hubby always told me Nike's were bad for running, but these were recently voted one of the best running shoe, so I had to give them a try, and I love them! They have great support, and do not hurt my feet or shins when I run (problems I've had with other shoes).

I don't have any specific workout tanks/tops that are my favorite, but I am always trying new ones in attempt to find 'the one.' Do you have one I need to try? I usually buy mine from Target or Forever21. And now, for my current playlist - as I mentioned it's a mix of all different types of music, but every time the song changes, I continue getting pumped up - music is KEY for me ;). What's on your playlist? 

Have a wonderful weekend!! Xx
