How was everyone’s weekend?! Ours was insanely busy, but not the kind of busy you might be thinking about.
The weather was beautiful, but instead of spending our days sitting on patios sipping drinks or laying by the pool or going for lakeside walks, our weekend was filled with closet purges, packing, and a fair amount of take-out. Why? We’re moving this week!
Sometime last week, I realized that I’d completely failed to mention this big change here on the blog, but it’s been a busy month and somehow it slipped my mind. It also happened pretty quick, which seems to be the norm for Chicago apartment hunting, but I’m happy that it’s nearly here and that the process will be over soon. Like most people, I hate moving and for me, it’s always a really stressful process.
If you’re wondering, yes, we’re staying in Chicago! While I’ve loved our time living downtown, I’m pretty much over it. I work from home and for the past 3 years my office has doubled as our dining room, living room and kitchen and I’m super excited because in our new place I’ll have an actual office space all to myself!
I’m planning on sharing a lot more about our new place in the coming weeks after we’ve moved, unpacked and settled in so bare with me as we go through all those boxes and get everything in place. We’re keeping most of our old stuff, but I do plan on making some updates to our bedroom as the space is a lot different than what we currently have. I’m most excited about this space because it’s been a while since I’ve made any major changes to our home decor!
Last week was also my 30th birthday which was so fun! Thankfully the rain held off, and our girls day went off without a hitch. I was pretty happy that I got a jump start on my summer tan too! I’m pretty sure after another Chicago winter I was Vitamin D deficient, ha!
White Dresses—Under $101
Now that the weather is feeling more like spring and summer, I’ve been wearing dresses non-stop. This white slip dress from Everlane has been on repeat. It’s lightweight, comfortable and so easy to throw on. It looks really cute with sneakers or dressed up with heels too. For a recent casual day, I wore it with these mint pointed slides—how fun is the color!? They also come in a really pretty dusty rose color if mint isn’t your thing. Best of all, Everlane is holding a one day event (TODAY!) and they’re offering free 2-day shipping on all orders site-wide, so take advantage!!
I’m sure we’ll be busy packing up last minute things and tossing stuff we don’t need anymore over the next couple of days, so wish me luck and cross your fingers that I stay calm!
Does moving stress you out too? Have there been any big changes in your life lately?!
