Brick by Brick

It feels like I haven't posted in forever! I am trying to become more consistent with my outfit posts and shop updates. But this week was a busy one. I was prepping all week for the Randolph Street Vintage Market for the weekend. And of course, getting myself ready for the Mad Men premiere, which did not disappoint. The week flew by which left me exhausted this morning. However, the weekend was the best, full of friends and laughing. Not gonna lie though, I am still in my pj's wrapped in a blanket sipping my coffee. Mentally preparing myself for all the work I have to get done today. 

I'm also dragging a bit today because Chicago went from 80º weather for the last 3 weeks to being 45º today!!! I'm not complaining, I knew we were totally lucky for the month of March. But the cold does make you a bit slower, no? When it's warm and sunny, I can't wait to get going! Luckily, tomorrow I will get that wish, it will be back up to 68º. Hahaha, gotta love my bi-polar city. Anyway, here are some photos from last Thursday Merl took for me during our strange Summer March weather. My dress and purse were from the sale at Holly's house for Lucite Box that I posted about in my last post.

 The pink is fading nicely in my hair. I can't wait til its the perfect baby pink.

I love all the small details on the dress. It's just so adorable.
  Necklace ~ Estate Sale
Sunglasses ~ H & M (2 years ago)
 Wooden Bangles & Rings ~ Antique Shops & Thrift Shops
 I hope you all had a phenomenal weekend!

I've got serious shoe envy... those are gorgeous!! And they match your dress so perfectly. Your pink streak is so cute, too.

We had a magical week of 80 degree temps up here, too, and today it's in the 30s :( Oh well, hopefully the warm weather will be back to stay next time!

oh we had beautiful summer weather last week and now it's back down to freezing! It was nice to wear some cute cotton sundresses while it lasted though...

Love these shoes with the dress- the touch of yellow is just right!

Gorgeous! I love this dress on you. The shoes and the bag make it even more awesome. I'm so glad you took that bag home with you. As for your shoes, I will be coming over to your home later tonight to steal them.

Great photos, Merl!
