Life has been so hectic lately (hence the lack of posting) that I just want to wear something fun, relax, and different. Plus, it gave me the perfect excuse to wear this flamingo shirt again! I am so glad tomorrow is Friday. Although I will be working all weekend, I'm hoping I do whole lot of nothing. Happy Thursday everyone!

Bridal Shower

Tuesday, April 28, 2015









Coat: Sheinside (less than $45)
Dress: JOA (old), similar here (pretty much identical)
Shoes: Halogen (go 1/2 size down)
Earrings: Bauble Bar
Bracelet: gift from Tre, similar here

Over the weekend was my bridal shower. My mom and sister did an amazing job hosting! The food was good, the games were fun, and of course I love how everything was decorated with pink! The day was great minus the weather. It pretty much poured all day. We took photos when the rain decided to take a break.  My besties and I couldn't resist giggling while the photos were taken (can you tell?!).

I'm obsessed with my pink Halogen heels! They're my new favorite pair of shoes! It's the perfect shade of blush and they're super comfortable! These heels will be on repeat multiple times this year. I also want to thank you all for all the sweet wishes for my shower! They really made my day! I'm looking forward to my next shower in a few weeks :)

Instagram Lately

Friday, April 24, 2015

TGIF!! Seriously, life has been hectic lately. Work is just crazy and all the wedding planning is building up. I can't believe our wedding day is only 2 months away! I remember just a year ago announcing I'm engaged. Tomorrow will be my bridal shower for my side of the family. I'm a little bummed that the weather will be crappy (rainy and cold), but I'm sure it will still be a  grand time! Hope you all follow along this weekend as I'm sure I will document via Instagram about my shower! Here's a round up of what is going on Instagram lately.
Deciding what to wear for my shower. Which ever dress I don't wear, I will wear to  the DiMare's shower in a few weeks.
Get dress details here & here. Shoes can be found here & here. Bauble Bar earrings.
Love this notebook I found at Marshalls! Too perfect to jot down ideas.
My recent purchase at Anthropologie. I got Rifle Paper Co notebooks (all 3 for $12.95), Voluspa candle, and Spring Eden perfume spray (my new favorite scent!)

Made a pizza out of Portobello mushrooms. I also revived leftover fries by adding parmesan cheese, rosemary, and olive oil and broiled for a few minutes.
Finally relaxing in bed.
Putting in a lot of hours a work. So coffee and beignets are a must :) Get the mug here and notebook here.
My recent Shopbop purchase. Can't wait until it is warmer to wear this jersey mini dress & Soludos espadrilles
Love these pencils. Another great find at Marshalls.

Do you remember when I mentioned I attended Lookbook's Hype brunch in this post or Instagrammed the cute table setting? Check out a short video clip of the event below (my 15 seconds of fame haha!).

The Kewl Shop + Giveaway

Wednesday, April 22, 2015








Dress: c/o The Kewl Shop (get it 15% off with code RDsobsessions)
Coat: Loft (old), similar here
Shoes: Chinese Laundry
I decided to take advantage of Chicago's Spring-like weather by wearing this bandage dress from The Kewl Shop.  I usually don't go for a fitted dress but I was immediately drawn by the dress' color and geometric pattern. I love how this dress makes a statement. I barely had to accessorize! This is why I love The Kewl Shop. They carry a large variety of bandage dresses that each type of dress is unique and can suit any girl's style. You can go from a form fitting dress to a two-piece look to a fit & flare dress. Since I never owned a bandage dress before, I was a little unsure about the sizing. With their great customer service, they were able to clarify and assist the right size for me. Definitely would wear this dress for a girls night out. You can also get their dresses for an extra 15% off by using the code 'RDsobsessions'.

Wait, it gets better than a discount. Not only is The Kewl Shop a great company that focuses on customer service, but they are also generous. They will give one winner a dress for FREE! Yes, you heard that right... free. All you have to do is enter in the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck! :)

Playing it Cool

Monday, April 20, 2015







Top: J. Crew Factory
Pants: Nordstrom (old), similar here & here
Sunglasses: Madewell (old), similar here (on sale too!)
Shoes: BCBG
Bracelet: House of Harlow via Rocksbox (get your first box FREE with code RDSOBSESSIONSXOXO)

Something about black and white creates a 'cool' effect. When I was putting this outfit together, I couldn't help but stand by a blue wall. The blue backdrop just makes the black and white just pop. It kind of makes me think of a modernized, feminine 'Blues Brothers' look. Haha does that even make sense?! Lately, I've been inspired by the colorful walls around the city (see the pink wall here). Every time I see a pop of color in the city, I think about what outfit will pair well with it.

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
