A First-Timer's Guide to Chicago!

Happy happy Wednesday! It seems a little funny to be sharing my travel guide to Chicago while I am currently in New York- but such is my crazy life this week! 

Earlier this month I took my first-ever trip to Chicago (eek!!) and I must say, it didn't disappoint in the slightest! I had always heard that I would love it, but I had not idea what to expect. It is such a pretty and clean "big city" (and if you know New York then you know this is a pretty novel concept) and there is so much to do/see/eat/explore- I don't know how you could ever get bored! I'm lucky that one of my gal pals, Stephanie, lives there so I was able to stay with her & her sweet family and galavant around the city to my heart's content!

So for any of you Chicago first-timer's- today's post is for you! And if you're a seasoned visitor then tell me your "must sees" and "must do's" - I'm already planning my next trip back! :)

Time to Break Out the Blanket Scarves!

Scarf: c/o Marley Lilly // Jeans: Loft (similar) // Sweater: J. Crew Factory (V-neck version here) // Apple Watch // Flats: c/o Oka-B Easton Flat (get 20% off with code "OKABGIRL16")

Happy Monday y'all! Not only was this weekend chock-full of fun times, it was absolutely gorgeous weather here in Florida- dare I say fall has arrived?? YES! With the incoming chill in the air, it only seems appropriate timing to bust out one of my very favorite cold-weather accessories: a plaid blanket scarf! Since I was super-busy running all sorts of last-minute errands for my two trips this week (more on that below!) I opted for my Oka-B Easton Flats to ensure that I didn't get sore feet while I was on the go! Plus, y'all how fun is that cute tassel detail?! I die!

Football Friday: Styling Orange for Your Favorite Team

Orange Tee: Banana Republic (almost exact) // Denim Shorts: Loft // Sandals: Sam Edelman // Blue Tassel Necklace: HSN (similar) // Apple Watch

"Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits, a Dollar; all for the Gators, stand up and hollar!"

Well y'all, we made it to Friday! I'm both excited and sad for today, because it's another fun collaboration with my girls to share how we style orange for our favorite team, BUT, it's also our last collab and I'm going to miss these sweet gals! (Be sure to check out all the ladies at the end of this post!)

I decided to keep today's look a little more casual (but still pulled together) because I realize that not everyone loves rocking a dress to football games. In fact, one of my new team members just moved from Michigan and attended her first Gator game last week and she said she was so confused by everyone wearing dresses- because that doesn't happen up north! #SouthernThing I'm obsessed with the half-tuck tee look, so that's what I did here; it's those little design elements that keep an outfit interesting! Adding on a fun tassel necklace just makes it all pop!

Four Tips for Shopping LulaRoe

Over the past few months I've shared with y'all several great pieces from LulaRoe (see previous looks here, here, and here), and I'm thrilled to share one of my newest favorite pieces with y'all today- the LulaRoe Randy tee! This is the absolutely perfect tee for weekend wear- it's unbelievably comfortable (like all Lula is!) and the patterns and saturated colors are to.die.for.

But, I recognize that LulaRoe might be a new shopping company and concept for some of y'all so I thought today I'd share my 4 tips for shopping LulaRoe successfully! Let's go...
