I Want Your Boyfriend (Jeans)

October 6, 2015

Sunglasses: Jason Wu c/o Endless Eyewear (get your first month free with code LAKESHORELADY)  Lipstick: stila | Necklace: Etsy | Top: Lush | Jeans: Madewell (more sizes and on sale HERE)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (also love this color!) | Shoes: ShoeMint (under $60!) 

A few weeks ago, I got together with my lovely friends Rachel, Ashley and Erica for brunch at Stax Cafe, complete with a fun shoot and girl time. Since I knew that both Rachel and Ashley were going to have their cameras, I pulled out my new favorite shoes (which you might have seen on insta!) and the boyfriend jeans that I've been liiiving in recently.

Oh and yes, you can afford these Jason Wu sunnies! For a little bit, at least :) Use my code LAKESHORELADY to try your first month of Endless Eyewear for free! Endless designer sunglasses? Yeah... it's awesome.

Besides the outfit - can we talk about the brunch we ate, too?! I had the chilaquiles, and they were some of the best I've had in Chicago. Seriously, SO good. We also tried mini pancakes and waffles (obsessed with this shot by Ashley)... and I love that you can get mini portions. I wouldn't want a whole plate of peanut butter banana pancakes, but I sure was happy to have a few bites!!

Big thanks to Rachel and Ashley for these photos!

Spicy and Sweet Roasted Pepitas

October 2, 2015

Did you see yesterday's post? It features my new recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup - and not only is the soup delicious, but these Roasted Pepitas on top are what really make it special. The sweet, spicy and nutty flavor cuts the sweetness in the soup; plus the crunchy texture is just what a smooth soup needs. So. Good.

I know I know, you've heard me complain about Fall... but today, you're going to hear what I love about this season - the food!! I'm such a huge fan of pumpkin, brussels sprouts and of course, butternut squash!

Tasting Menu at Spiaggia

September 28, 2015

Right after I got back from Europe, I quickly beat the post vaca blues because I was lucky enough to visit Spiaggia to try one of their tasting menus. Chef Tony Manutano ordered me a glass of champagne (ahh!) and proceeded to delight us with the most beautiful meal. I mean, reeally - how lucky am I?!
