Happy Sunday, loves! It is super rainy here in Chicago, so I’m using that as an excuse to stay in pajamas for as loooong as possible this morning. Netflix on the tv, coffee in my favorite mug, and shopping the Labor Day Weekend Sales? Sounds like my kind of Sunday!
Even though this holiday weekend looks very different, it’s been really really nice and relaxing. I stopped working early on Friday to take a long walk (past Welles Park, pictured above!) and get my nails done for the first time since way before COVID. I went to my favorite Lincoln Square spa, Lena Rose, and it was delightful. Jenny is offering you guys 15% off products and services with code LAKESHORELADY, too! If you’ve been craving a little pampering, I highly recommend supporting this local woman-owned business. Jenny is the best!

Speaking of LDW Sales, I am most excited about the Mango sale because their fall arrivals are SO. CUTE. I’m going to order this perfect embroidered sweater, this easy midi dress, this tank and sweater set, and this floral blouse. With 30% off this weekend, each of those items are under $50, too!
Olivia made me want to book a trip to Montana this week.
