Little Denim Dress

Free People Dress | H&M Earrings | ASOS BraceletsDolce Vita Sandals (on sale here!)

One would think Free People is a Shanelé sponsor this summer; unfortunately that is not the case. But they sure do have some great summer dresses, like this one, that all seem to fit perfectly. I paired it with my favorite new sandals, which are on major sale here, for an Engagement party in Chicago and again for a low key night of dinner and drinks in the city last Friday.

30 Years & Counting

Today is a double post day...to wish two of the best parents a kid (and now grandkid) could ever ask for a Happy 30th Anniversary. Looking forward to celebrating this weekend. Love you both dearly. xoxo.

Weekend Update - 7/30/2012

Another weekend in the City which started out Friday evening playing tourist in my own city at the 9-11 Memorial, sushi at Japonica and then drinks with a college friend. Spent Saturday strolling around my neighborhood (complete with sightings of Will Ferrell & Benjamin Bratt) and ducking in and out of stores (namely Beacon's Closet on 13th St. and Urban Outfitters, which is having an additional 30% off sale items) to wait out the intermittent rain showers. Sunday consisted of lots of the same and also included al fresco brunch at Cafe Reggio and dinner at Rosemary's. Beyond happy it's a short-work week as I head home to Illinois Thursday for my friend Elyse's wedding. Cannot. Wait.

Zara Sale x2

Zara Dip Dye Boyfriend Jeans (similar here) & Sweater | American Apparel Bandeau | Forever 21 Sandals (similar here) & Bag (similar here)

Two Zara sale items (similar jeans here) combined into one outfit that I've made work for summer Fridays at the office and a night on the town later that evening. The sweater is lightweight and flowy enough to withstand the heat and paired nicely with a white bandeau that peaks out the back. Finally threw on a simple summer sandal (with hot orange toes) and this mint purse, which I can't seem to stop wearing for the life of me.

The Perfect Pink

Tibi Dress | H&M Earrings | Nine West Heels | Forever 21 Bag (similar on sale here!) | MAC Pink Nouveau Lipstick

This dress...pretty much the perfect bubble gum pink color. It worked paired with a mint bag, python heels and relatively simple jewelry for an American Cancer Society benefit Saturday night in the Hamptons.

Weekend Update - 7/23/2012

{where I spent the majority of my weekend}
As mentioned Friday, I spent the weekend in the Hamptons doing what you usually do in the Hamptons: eating, drinking and sleeping. Saturday attended the American Cancer Society's Festive in Flip Flops event at the Bridgehampton Beach Club. The rest of the time was spent baking poolside. Hope you all had a restful weekend and a great week!

Urban Outfitters Romper | Lucky Brand Wedges | Forever 21 Bag 

I originally intended to name this post 'Summer Romper'...but wasn't paying attention and Sumper came out so I went with it. Anywho, summer romper...yes, this is a good one. Toodles.

Weekend Update - 7/16/2012

Talk about a whirlwind weekend trip. My flight to Chicago was (naturally) delayed Friday so went straight to meet my friends for dinner on the adorable back patio of Briciola...suitcase in tow. Headed to The Shambles afterwards for birthday cocktails and debauchery. The rain Saturday unfortunately cut our beach day short before we had dinner on my friend Marina's amazing rooftop and a joint birthday/engagement party at Derby.

And last but certainly not least...when I touched down in New York yesterday afternoon I had a text saying to call my Mom as soon as I could which I knew meant one thing: I was about to become an Aunt. I spent the rest of the afternoon pacing around my apartment and incessantly calling/texting my parents in nervous anticipation. Finally at around 5:00 pm, my sister and her husband welcomed a sweet baby girl, Kennedee Kay Guyer, into the world and words cannot even begin to describe my excitement. Hope you all had a nice weekend!

3 Summer Essentials

Urban Outfitters Dress (similar here) | H&M Hat (similar here) | Marc Fischer Wedges (similar here) | Zara Bag

In my mind, there are three absolutely essential items for any summer wardrobe: a white cotton dress, panama hat and wedges. I incorporate at least one and in this case all of these items into my outfits on hot summer days and this weekend was no exception.
