Oh friends, it is SO good to be back! Even if you didn't miss me, I missed you! AND I wanted to tell you all that I am so overwhelmed by all the love I got with my big news! I could not be more thankful for the opportunity and it was so encouraging to read all your messages and encouraging comments.

While we're on the topic of fun news...Next week I will be co-hosting the "Style to Inspire" blog linkup with the lovely Rhea of Rheaetcetera! I hope you join us! The more the merrier! Can't wait to be inspired by your looks and your personal style. To get a head start, please follow us! (My social media links are all at the top of the page!)

Here are today's Five Friday Favorites:

1. Favorite July style: Bicycle print!
Target Cardigan: sold out, but loving this whale print
Jcrew Pants on SALE for $30!
Seychelle Sandals: sold out, but love this pair
Threetwentythreeco Necklace: Eyeing this one

2. Favorite eat: NEXT 
I am so excited to have finally experienced a meal at one of Chicago's best restaurants, NEXT. The food was phenomenal! Plus, they treat you like VIP and they gave us extra dishes and delicious drinks on the house! Amazing. Here are some of my favorite dishes:

3. Favorite sight: Chicago's Buckingham Fountain at Sunset
It's fun to play tourist in your own city, especially when it's a beautiful city! We were walking around downtown Chicago a couple weeks ago and I was able to capture some of Chicago's spectacular beauty against the backdrop of a gorgeous sunset.

4. Favorite new music: Little Chief
Found these guys on Noisetrade and whenever I encounter this kind of talent, I wonder how more people have never heard of them. Check out their music! It's free!

5. Favorite shot from my photo shoot last week
Crain's Chicago wanted to highlight each feature of my outfit, so they shot this photo of my shoes. I love the color contrast of my magenta shoes against the blue picnic table.
