Last night we finished up the last of the painting, and aside from sealing the tile and grout, the bathroom is done! It went a week over schedule, but it was worth all the time and money to have something that feels fresh, clean and bright. We went with an ikea vanity, school house electric orbit sconces, big round mirror from overstock, oversized marble subway tile from a local tile outlet, and fixtures from homedepot and the paint is Martha Stewart bakers box white (looks white in bright light, and minty green in low light. All in all a pretty good mix of high and low. My favorite thing is the little cutout to hold all the products.

Still waiting for spring to happen in Chicago, we got a taste on Sunday with some 60 degree weather, then it dropped again. I picked up this super cozy sweater over the weekend, I first spotted it on Le Catch, and while it isn't something I would normally pick, I LOVED IT. Some Besties were in town from Detroit, so it was the perfect excuse to head to the mag mile for some shopping. All the sweaters were on sale at H&M and Zara. Considering how things are going, I'll probably be wearing it for another 2 months.

It doesn't quite feel like spring in Chicago yet, but I can't stop pinning spring things left and right.
1.Pink Top I love the design on this, and how easy would it be to take a seam ripper to any plain loose shirt and add a sash like that. I'll keep my eyes peeled at the thrift.
2. Balenciaga Peplum Don't even click the link...it's A THOUSAND DOLLARS folks, I'm just hoping this shape inspires tons and tons of affordable knock offs.
3. Necklace I have no idea where this is from (other than some tumbler) but I think with pliers, jump rings, chains and some good beads you and your ladies could come up with some sweet DIY necklaces inspired by this lil gem.
4. I bought these D'orsay flats over the weekend, when I say bought, I really mean I went to 4 targets to find them in my size like a lunatic...there not even real leather people...BUT the shape and fit were perfect, and they make my tiny feet look bigger which is a plus.
5. These sunnies are already sold out, but similar ones are at Forever 21 right now, I picked up some in black.
