I'm back from Chicago! But, guess what? I came home to realize I didn't take one single picture! What? How could that be? I must say, I am a disappointed in myself that I don't have any pictures...but I guess there really weren't a ton of photo opts either. We had perfect weather, (perfect shopping weather!) and ate at all my favorite spots. We literally shopped every day, haha. I mean...why not?

I have a few pics of my purchases that I found online...

I got this silver/gold BCBG dress to wear to Kimmy and Clif's wedding in May. I LOVE shopping and buying dresses for events in advance. This is never the case for me, so I am thrilled I have my whole ensamble lined up!! Perfect shoes too...and some new gold jewels!

I got this clutch  to carry with the silver/gold dress. The color looks a little weird in this pic but it looks great in real life. Trust. :)

Mama hooked it up with this new Kate Spade bag! Loooove it! I am ready to break out my new spring bags...see ya winter!
I had never really seen Kate Spade jewelry in real life but I loved it (go figure, right?) I got these black studs which I desperately needed. These bad boys are real big and I love them! Also a plain silver bangle to wear with my watch. Thank you, KS, never a disappoint.

Black shorts from AT Loft...I also got some cute white eyelet shorts from Macy's but I couldn't find a pic of those.

Have y'all ever heard of Bar iii? I hadn't, until this trip and I found tons of great dresses! Macy's carries it...I'm not sure where else but I'd imagine Macy's isn't the only department store. I got several Bar iii dresses but this is the only one I could find a pic of online.

Another BCBG dress...I got this in hot pink. I think I might wear it to Austin's uncles wedding this spring!

I also scored some super cute black Coach flip flops and a pair of black wedges Gwenie gave me! The other clothes I couldn't find online, or didn't really feel like searching for. You will just have to see those in real life!

I shopped lots for Aus too, don't worry. :) His spring wardrobe needed a little attention. Several new Polo's, shorts, and I found three Brooks Brothers button ups and ties at Nordstrom Rack...loooove getting good deals! I even found a Tasso Elba sweater for $5.99 at Macy's! He was happy!

Chicago was great fun but...I hope I don't go back anytime soon. Because...I hope my mom is moving here very soon!! I told her that was my last trip, but I guess we will see what happens. :)


  1. Shut. up. I bought that exact same BCBG dress IN HOT PINK TOO!!!! hahaha We have officially just become related.

  2. haha love it. we officially need to consult each other with our event attire...we are liable to end up at the same place with the same dress on!

  3. I'm officially jealous of you both. :) I want to be able to wear all of these things!! Soon! (hopefully!)
    Love the dress for Kimmy's wedding, btw!
