The cutest gingham peplum top / Favorite dark skinnies (Also this similar pair, which is on sale! And this pair.) / Favorite pink pumps (Here’s the other version, and here are the block heel sandals.) / My first Dooney & Bourke Bag (Larger here)

Morning! (Slash afternoon?) Mitch, Patrick, Kim and I had a really great Saturday. The sun was out for the first time in over a week! We spent the morning lounging, and then we headed to Belmont Harbor, where this pic was taken. After that, we walked through the Lincoln Park Zoo, where Emma fell in love with the lion and monkey exhibits. We had wine and fries at the J.Parker atop the Hotel Lincoln, and we ended our day with a low-key dinner at Nella.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun post, but for now, here are this week’s Recent Finds:

Guys, swoop these shoes up right now. They’re SO COMFORTABLE. Wore them to the lake yesterday and zero pain. Super flexible leather; no break-in time! Here are the sandals. (And Banana Republic makes a pair.)

I just recently got my first Dooney & Bourke bag, and I’m obsessed! There’s just nothing like a white bag for spring and summer, and I find myself reaching for this one all the time. :) I love this larger one, too. Such classics!

A ton of my favorite Rag & Bone jeans are on sale right now. I love this light wash pair, as I’m obsessed with white jeans but think I wear them a little too often. Here are my favorite day-t0-day jeans, here are great dark skinnies, here’s a slightly lighter pair, and here’s the bow-adorned pair.

A navy gingham scarf! Finally!

LOVE this sweater. Again, such a classic!

The perfect summer espadrilles.

I love Hudson, and this skinny white pair is on MAJOR sale right now.

Such an affordable leopard clutch.

I can’t remember if I’ve posted this before, but how cute is this bag?! Kate Spade, I feel like you’re making a comeback?! Here’s the bigger version.

I’ve probably included this in the past, but all those ruffles.

I know. Everyone is sad that these pink bow mules sold out so quickly. BUT this white pair is so sweet!

This pink reversible (and affordable) tote is perfect for spring.

This maxi is so pretty.

Love this silk scarf. Wouldn’t it look great with striped tees?

Striped bow flats. Sigh.

BAH! These are adorable in blush, too.

Ruffles and stripes and everything nice.

A gingham ruffled tee dress.

The preppiness is out of control and I love it.

As much as I love my yellow rain coat, it’s on the pricier side. This one, though, is far more affordable and just as cute!

Cap-toe pumps are all the rage right now, and this pair is pretty perfect.

I fell in love with these jeans recently. Thoughts on the raw hem?

This are ridiculously expensive, but they’re SO CUTE. Ugh. The struggle is real.
