Musings / Lately
I don’t know where this picture of Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire on the set of Funny Face came from, but it pretty much sums up my feelings about this week. It’s enough to make me start to seriously believe Mercury Retrograde is a thing.
But when Mercury Retrograde ends in October, we’ll be that much closer to my 25th (!!) birthday. I am hardcore quarter-life-crisis-ing. Sometimes things like Garance Dore’s letter to her 20 year old self help snap me out of that.
Other times, things like shopping help snap me out of it. This, this and these, please.
On Wednesday, I had one of the most fun nights ever embarking on a totally impromptu West Loop food crawl with my friend Hailey. We hit up The Allis at Soho House Chicago, Expat and finally Au Cheval – where I fell prey to one of the most cliche Chicago foodstagrams you can take. What? It’s the best burger in America, and the ‘gram in question has 71 likes and counting.
I recently did my first apartment DIY, and now I want to DIY all the things. Because who knew IKEA could be so chic?
Finally, I covered NYFW street style recently, and Man Repeller has a brilliant list of fall fashion resolutions inspired by that very thing. Feeling extra over-achiever-y? Check out my own list of fall goals this a way, along with a whole bunch of other bloggers.
