Date Night Polka Dots.

After a weekend in Chicago it’s become really evident how living in San Francisco has affected my wardrobe – I’m all about denim! My style has definitely become a bit more laid back over the past year as I’ve adjusted to California living; I’ve traded in my stilettos for chunky heeled sandals I can wear all day, I own more pairs of jeans than ever before and the chilly fog has me choosing pants over dresses most days.

Date Night Polka Dots.

While my date night looks were dressier while I was living in the Windy City I’ve been keeping it simple lately – this black & white polka dot cami from J. Crew was a recent closet addition, I love how the bold pattern makes a statement while the black & white combination keeps things neutral. Paired with my favorite high-rise black skinny jeans from Madewell and a new pair of sandals from M. Gemi (SO comfortable!), the outfit was ready for dinner with B with little fuss.

On My Radar.

Happy Friday from Chicago! I flew back to my beloved Windy City on a redeye last night (oooof) to soak up some Summertime Chi and spend a weekend with some of my best friends. I haven’t been back since the holidays and it’s so great to be back downtown – I plan on spending the next few days exploring some new spots that have opened in the city since we moved while also hitting up a few of my all-time favorites. Anyone have any suggestions for me?!
