This weekend was spent enjoying family fun all over the Chicago-land area! Saturday, we had a day of fun at Maggie Daley park along with a sleepover with my niece and Nephew. Sunday we went to Arlington Race Course for my dads birthday! I took some photos while there of the kids with my dad and I'm so bummed that while importing the photos the computer crashed and deleted most of them and a few other outfit posts which is always such a bummer. I was able to recover a few from the track, which is what you see above. Not the best quality photography, but the best I could do with what I had. If it makes you feel any better, I was wearing shoes, but they are sold out anyway, so that would have just been teasing you anyway. 

This dress is however, on sale right now for $15 and extremely easy to wear.  Get it while you still can!

Dress: Vintage (purchased at fest from Hopscotch and Soda but you can shop her adorable dresses here) // Shoes: Crossroads Trading

This weekend is one of my favorite Chicago festivals, the Randolph Street Market! Mostly because it involved buying pretty vintage things. I can't turn down some summer fun that involves shopping!

If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, grab a few friends and enjoy perusing both the indoor showroom and outdoor selection of handmade and vintage treasures. I promise you endless hours of summer fun and that you will find something great and unique to take home with you!

Have a great weekend!

Dress: Gap Outlet // Hat: J. Crew (similar here from Target) // Sandals: Old Navy (sold out but super similar ones here)// Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Love Cross Body c/o Shopbop // Sunglasses: eBay // Bracelet: Ann Taylor

I saw this dress on Claire from Foxtail + Moss at their garden event at Gather Home & Lifestyle and feel in love with it before I even had the chance to introduce myself. She informed me that her very dress was purchased for a steal for 40% off at Gap Outlet! I must say, I haven't been to the Gap Outlet in a really long time but this dress was the perfect excuse to drop by. Or just click over and get it for just $28 online!

Thanks to my friend Olivia for the pictures!

Dress: ASOS (similar here for 60% off) // Bag: vintage (grandmas) // Shoes: Ann Taylor // Belt: J. Crew (similar for 40% off) // Sunglasses: Prada

Gingham has alway been one of my favorite patterns, and this halter gingham dress didn't disappoint. I wish I could say that it's still available (this one and this one still are and on sale), but I scooped up one of the last ones during a sale on ASOS. I could spend hours sifting through all their adorable dresses and unique pieces! I am really loving this LOFT gingham dress (60% off) though, as well as these shorts. And can we talk about how cute this retro gingham one piece is too?!

Maybe you have some old gingham pieces in your closet from years past, but I recommend pulling them out and breathing new life into that timeless print while it's having a serious moment!

Dress: Zara (sold out online) // Heels: Zara (from last season)// Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Jules satchel c/o Shopbop // Hat: Forever 21 // Sunglasses: eBay (less then $3)

This yellow flora Zara dress is so cheery and fun, not to mention it's my favorite color to wear next to pink. Another bonus is that it's really comfy and easy to wear. Dresses are the best for summer time! They are pretty much all I wear all summer long when I'm not wearing workout clothes. I love being able to throw a single piece on and being done! Add in a few dressed-up accessories like this sun hat and a great bag like this Rebecca Minkoff Jules satchel, and your set! 

Thanks to my super talented friend Ashley for these pictures!
