The first few days of fall have felt a lot like summer and like everyone else, I’m looking forward to breaking out my sweaters and favorite booties. Leaves are slowly starting to fall on the ground and these warm days are a reminder that summer is fleeting. I’m ready for sweater weather but plan on enjoying …

The last summer weekend was one of my favorite summer weekends. We celebrated my birthday with margaritas, dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, and a rooftop end of summer/birthday party. Can't believe there are just three more days until summer '16 comes to an end.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about falling off the grid and wanting to be better about getting out of the house and making plans with friends. The past two weeks, I co-worked at Soho House and Left Coast. And I met friends for a few pool days, flywheel, a rosé tasting, lunch, …

The weekend has come to an end and it’s time to dive into another week of work. Instead of feeling sad it’s not Sunday, why not try planning something fun before the holiday weekend? It’s still summer after all, so find the nearest patio, a friend, some rosé, and turn things around. But …

Chicago showed some of the first signs that in the next month or so, summer will be coming to an end. It isn't over yet, but morning and evening temps are creeping into the 60s–a sign that fall is coming. I've been watching too much Game of Thrones.

For some reason, I’ve made it to the pool once this summer and haven’t gotten around to some of my favorite summer activities. And I’m from California, so I live for warm summer days that feel a little like home. Anything below 50 or above 85 is out of my …

After the most amazing few weeks in Tuscany, Florence, Rome, and Paris, I am finally back in Chicago. And while I loved my time away, it's so good to come home to the pup, only 12 unread emails, and to start and end the work week on a Friday.

Spending a week in Italy with just one post ready to publish will result in a slight lack of content. I'm at the airport headed to one of my favorite cities and think it's time for an update.

Nothing beats warm temps, sunshine, and laying out by the pool on a long, holiday weekend. Unfortunately, my 3 day weekend didn't turn out as planned, but it was still nice to enjoy a little relaxation at home.
