Happy Friday everyone! The weekend came early this week for me since I flew to Dallas on Wednesday. I’ve been enjoying the warm weather and wrapping up wedding details. We met with our wonderful calligrapher yesterday and I can’t wait to see the finished product!

Tonight, Rob and his parents get here and we’re all going to to dinner to one of my Dallas favorites, Hibiscus, and then tomorrow is our engagement party. I’m so thankful for all of my parents’ friends who are putting on this special night for us!

As happy as I am to be in sunny Texas, I’m a little bummed that I’m missing this event this weekend in Chicago. A new favorite designer of mine, 1.State has teamed up with InStyle Magazine, Jena of Chi City Fashion and Nordstrom for a shopping & styling event this Saturday, 3/1 at the Michigan Avenue Norstrom location to show off their new collection! Everything about it just screams summer and I know all of us are ready for that in Chicago! I’m especially loving this sheer inset tank and laser cut faux leather skirt.

So if you’re in Chicago, you should stop by since I can’t and follow 1.State on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter!!

On another note, next week, I have a new series that I’m starting that’s meant to inspire you and give you insight into starting a creative business. I’ve interviewed several amazing and talented ladies and hope that these interviews give you just the push you need to make that jump to make your dream come true. The first interview kicks off on Tuesday with a handbag designer who I absolutely adore, any guesses on who it is?

I’ve been in Dallas since Wednesday this week which has been both productive and relaxing. I’m really excited for the weekend though!
