I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends, family, good food and some time to relax. I’m still stuck in a bit of a food coma this morning thanks to a fantastically huge dinner last night!!

Remember my talented new friend Astrowifey? I visited her for another manicure the other day and her creative & immaculate work still blows my mind. I came to her with a few ideas of what I wanted, and she managed to combine them and make my manicure modern, funky, geometric (which I love right now), glittery (which I love even more) and fun! I smile every time I look at my nails these days.

Welcome to a brand spanking new week, Lovelies! Sorry this post is appearing a little later than usual….this weekend was packed with events and activities, so my Monday is off to a bit of a late start.

I’ve been dying to show you guys this Neon Dress forEVER! I’ve had it for a little while, but somehow didn’t manage to get pictures of it until now. It’s SUCH a fun dress! The neon is bright, flirty and punchy, the thick-ish neoprene fabric is drapey and doesn’t wrinkle (travel bonus!), and I know this baby will look good dressed up like I did in this post, as well as dressed down with flats and a fedora. It’s a bit short, so just to be on the safe side (wouldn’t want any wardrobe malfunctions to occur!) I wore a pair of laced biker shorts underneath (shorts from here). What’s your take on Summer neon?? Oh, and how about those amazing, bright earrings from J.Crew?! I’m in Love!

Dope DIY {Tile Coasters}

Well, hello my Lovelies!! I hope everyone’s long weekend was fabulously relaxing and fun! What kind of trouble did you get into??! My weekend was busy busy…filled with celebrating my Birthday with delicious doughnuts from the newly opened “Glazed & Infused” (their Creme Brûlée doughnut is beyond addicting!), vintage shopping at the monthly Randolph Street Antique Market, and a fun trip to Michigan to photograph a lakeside wedding. Phew! Of course, there were also a few celebratory cocktails involved – which leads me to today’s fun DIY. I’d been scheming to make these Tile Coasters for months, and finally got them done this past week. They’re so simple but SO glam! All you need is a few super basic tiles from your local hardware store, a little spray paint in your favorite color, some tape (I am addicted to using my Washi tape for EVERYTHING these days!), and a little glitter to glam up your coaster’s edges. Tah-Dah! Aren’t they fun?! So go forth and create…any questions, just ask.
