Paris calling

We’ve had the perfect summer weather here in Omaha lately. Yesterday, the high only reached 72, and Liz, Jeni and I took advantage of the break in heat to catch Shakespeare on the Green (you can see pics on my Instagram). We packed a cooler full of cheese, crackers, olives, chocolate and wine and spent last night watching the complete works of Shakespeare (abridged). It was hilarious, and if you ever get the chance to experience something like that in your city, take advantage!

After tearing my last black maxi skirt and being without one for a couple of years, I finally found one at Target that was both inexpensive but well-fitting. Score! And Old Navy lately has been killing it in the graphic tee department. 

I’ll see you on the flip side of the long weekend. Happy Independence Day!

It’s official: Gap makes the softest T-shirts ever. After a recent stop last weekend (that turned into a major sale try-on session), I walked away from the store with a number of cute, drape-y tops that I have been living in for the past few days. When paired with super soft leopard pants? The result is almost pajama-like — the daytime appropriate version, of course.

After a very fun week in Ohio and a fun but packed weekend in Chicago, I’m back at it in Omaha. My college friend Keri is getting hitched in July, and we celebrated the bachelorette party a bit early and had a personal cooking lesson with a professional chef. So. Good. I’m a Top ChefMasterChef, Hell’s Kitchen, all around Food Network freak, and now I want a chef to teach me to stop by my apartment every week to teach me a new dish. Liz and I got back in around 1:00 on Monday morning, and sleep was the very first thing on my mind. Thanks for sticking with me through my unplanned break!

Most people shy away from black in the summer, but I find I reach for it year-round. The trick is making it season-appropriate, and these shorts from Old Navy do the trick (last seen here). I wore them multiple times during my trip, and they’re just as versatile with a silky tank as they are with a printed sweatshirt.

Summer basics

Oh, Monday. You have come too soon. After five states in 12 hours, I’m now in Ohio for some wedding celebrations this week. It’ll be lovely to spend some time back in the midwest for the next few days.

As for me, I’m sticking to summer basics this week. I managed to pack everything I needed for the week in a smaller suitcase (which, if you know me, is a big deal). Pre-trip, though, I was in summer basics to beat the heat: stripes, a Panama hat and boyfriend shorts. 

Bring on Monday!

Spring nudes

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! Who else is feeling ready to take on the week? I blame my Monday positivity on my redecorated and reorganized office (pics to come later this week). 

Normally I steer clear of anything nude or blush-toned because I don’t want it to wash out my already-pale complexion. But this spring, I’ve noticed more and more of these colors filling my wardrobe, and I must admit I like it. It just epitomizes spring, you know? Sometimes personal rules are meant to be broken.
