Nothing Too Fancy



Earlier in the summer I had to take my board exams in Chicago (MAJOR bleh), but I decided to make the most of the trip and stay an extra 4 days to visit my big sister. She truly made the experience wonderful and proved, once again, why she is the best sister in the world—not only did she treat me to a surprise “you need to decompress post boards” massage and a five course dinner, but she had the entire weekend planned out with amazing brunch spots and bars, plenty of shopping, and lots of sister TLC. In addition to seeing an awesome new band called Painted Palms (I HIGHLY recommend you check them out), we went to a music festival and saw Empire of the Sun and 2Chainz. Basically…I had the best weekend ever and have so many amazing memories with my sister.

Anyways, one day while we were walking to brunch, I saw this dress in the window and immediately changed directions and went into the store to make the purchase plunge. I didn’t even try it on, I just knew I needed it. I absolutely love the colors, the fabric, and most importantly, how much freaking fun it is to twirl around in this bad boy. Sending smiles!
