What I’m Wearing + Instagram Roundup

Happy 2018 AND Friday! The last few months of 2017 were a complete whirlwind so I’m feeling especially grateful for a slower start to what will be a fantastic and equally as busy year!

I hope you had a fantastic holiday and welcomed the new year the way you wanted to. I spent the majority of the holiday at home in Ohio and celebrated the new year with friends over a (very chilly) ski weekend.

I’m sharing a few outfits pre- bomb cyclone snow storm as well as some others that I’ve received questions about.

On our way to New Years, I posted this hat on my instastories, I got a TON of inquiries about where it was from…

I hope you’re bundled up for the chilly weekend we’re in for, I’ll be sharing an awesome Italian chicken recipe that guarantees to warm you up on Monday, so stop back!

Summer Statement Earrings

Earring wise, you could say I’m a minimalist. Due to bad piercing job (thanks Claire’s — circa 1999), I’ve pretty much stuck to studs my whole life. You could also say I have major earring FOMO. I’m always gifting statement earrings mostly because I can’t buy them for myself!

This weekend I found these fun (and very light) earrings which are perfect for summer and I’m linking a few other pairs that I’m dying for you to buy because… those who can’t wear… share!

May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short! xo

Cheers!

 

Weekend Recap & Check In

Hi Friends! Long time, no see. Life has been moving fast and as Ferris Bueller would say, “if you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it!” I also believe someone said “all great changes are proceeded by chaos” so let’s hope that adage is true too.  However, I digress. I’m back from a lovely weekend in Pittsburgh and gearing up for another work week so I’ll share a few snapshots of the weekend as I wish there was an extra day between Sunday and Monday.

Friday, we attended a charity event that we’ve gone to the past several years. Benefitting Cystic Fibrosis, Brewer’s Ball is a great cause and definitely something you should attend if you live in the area.

 

minor details
I love this antique cocktail ring that I wore with my dress!

On Saturday the sun was shining but there was still a bit of a breeze so I kept it casual with my favorite Burberry trench as we ran errands.

We took a quick break at a local place for some iced thai and chai teas. Delicious.

That night, we had a great drinks and dinner out at two of my favorite places. Check my weekend recommendations below for more info.

Just because I spent the weekend in Pittsburgh doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten my roots. Opening day was Friday and I was sporting my Cleveland pride. Go Tribe!

This weekend’s recommendations:

Late Night: Grit & Grace (the cocktails are better than the late night dining options)

Sips: Acacia (An incredible speakeasy on Carson that you’ve probably walked past a million times)

Dine: Meat & Potatoes  (I’ll be honest, everything here is amazing but try the mushroom truffle risotto- thank me later)

Brunch: Marty’s Market (pick up some groceries while you’re there and they just started serving alcohol! #mimosas)

Until next time,

Cheers!
