Have you shopped J.Crew’s new arrivals yet? All the pom-poms, scallops and stripes… I’m dying!

I flew back to the city yesterday, and got the same amazing feeling I always get when I step off the plane in Florida. Seventies, my friends! Seventies! In Chicago. Mitch picked me up at Midway (after he accidentally drove to O’Hare first… poor guy), and we went out to a nice dinner to celebrate. :)

And I may have worn this ah-ma-zing Adrianna Papell dress. Admittedly, I’ve been saving it for a wedding we have in May, but I couldn’t help but break it out on the nicest day of the year–and for Mitch. (Being away from him for a week is hard!) While the dress is certainly wedding-appropriate, I love that its black jersey top and pockets make it perfect for events and dinners, too. And I definitely think it’s a winner for nights out on Lake Michigan this summer.

Something else we were celebrating at dinner? The flooring for our master bedroom is halfway done! Construction started while I was away, and I was nothing short of heartbroken to miss the beginning of the excitement. But I can’t get over how perfect it looks. I’m going to be taking photos of the progress tomorrow, and I can’t wait to share! Every day, we’re getting closer and closer to not living out of suitcases.

Lastly, I’M NOT WEARING NAVY, GUYS.

It’s a miracle. ;)
