After a particularly rough day, I’ll take all the extra cuddles with this sweet one I can get.
Neck scarf trend: Yay or Nay? blouse ($16 and one of my favorites)
Uniqlo is coming to Chicago! They open on Michigan Ave on Oct. 23, so be sure to mark your calendars! Sweaters here and here.
I’m starting The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. Its supposed to be so good! Have you read it?
This weekend, I’ll be making this Acapulco-style shrimp cocktail and this black bean soup, both by Rick Bayless. I am so excited to be attending a presentation by this award-winning chef, later this month!
Stripes and sequins and a sweet barbacoa pork salad with creamy tomatillo dressing.
Obsessed with Chloe-inspired and budget friendly handbags found here and here. I also have my eye on this cozy sweater, this navy fedora (gorgeous), this plaid scarf (under $15), these Prada inspired sunglasses (only $22) and this in lieu of a Halloween costume.
Have the best weekend!
