Cacti on The Brain

Hey lovelies, happy Wednesday!

It’s finally feeling like summer in Chicago and I am all about it. I’ve pulled all my shorts, skirts, and summer clothes out while swapping out my heavy winter sweaters for light layers and bright colors.


What I Wore

Summer in the city definitely varies a bit. Some days can be ungodly hot and humid while on others it can still be a bit chilly, so layers are key!  (more…)

My Day with Dunkin’

Happy Wednesday, lovelies! Now that I’m post-grad, I’m working full time, but I still have “off” days which become the days that I end up doing the majority of my blog work, hanging out with friends, and spending time with family. For today’s post, I’m going to walk you through an average “off” day for me.



The first thing I do every morning when I wake up is check my social channels. I’ll also flip through all my inboxes and take note of any important emails that I need to respond to.

Oversized Springtime Sweaters

Happy Fri-yay! I don’t know about all of you, but this week felt sooooo long. This time of year is always crazy packed. Just the other day, my mom pointed out that I graduate in less than a month! (Talk about a reality check.) I’m incredibly excited, even with all the changes that are ahead, but I’m still doing my best to live in the moment and enjoy all the time I do have left in school (26 days!!!).

Feeling 22 – Bowtiful Bday Brunch

Yesterday I turned 22! (And yes, I blasted Taylor Swift.)

So, this past weekend was filled with plenty of celebrating!



Sunday was an especially special day because I was able to go on a champagne brunch cruise at Navy Pier with Odyssey Cruises Chicago on the Odyssey II with some of my nearest and dearest friends.


Carnation Ball 2017

This past Friday, I attended my final Chi Omega formal of my college career… That’s just as weird to type as it is to comprehend! As hard as it is to believe, senior year is really starting to come to a close.

Carnation Ball was absolutely incredible and I can honestly say that it was one of the very best formal experiences I’ve had during my time at Loyola. Being surrounded by some of my very best friends, all dressed up and dancing the night away to our favorite songs, made Friday truly the perfect evening.


What I Wore

Solace London Dress (Rented from Rent The Runway Chicago)  –  Hair & Makeup ℅ Gold Plaited  –  Topshop Heels ℅ (similar style here)  –  Kendra Scott Earrings & Ring  –  Monica Vinader Bracelet ℅  –  Bite Beauty Lip Crayon in “Glacé”


For old time’s sake (and because he’s a super fun dance partner) I brought one of my best buds, Connor, as my date! We’ve gone to quite a few formals and semi formals together over the years, but this was by far one of my favorite events and outfits.
