My Chic Week: July 15-21

Happy Friday y'all! Today officially starts my second vacation of the summer- my family and I are making the 14 hour trek north to Upstate New York. My family owns a lake house there that has been in the family for years and it's always a highlight of our summer to visit. Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter as I'm hoping to share lots of pictures from my trip with y'all!


I worked in the morning on Friday so that part of my day was fairly routine. After nannying, I headed to Southpark Mall as my mom asked me to make a return for her and I, of course, couldn't resist stopping into some of favorite stores. Lilly recently sent out an invitation to me to view the product book for their Resort collection so I obviously had to stop in to view that and I may or may not have walked out with another Elsa top haha!

Lilly's dressing rooms are always gorgeous at every store and I love when I get to go to a new one. This time, I was in the Charlotte themed dressing room and it was gorgeous!




My OOTD: Lilly Pulitzer Bailey Top ⎢Lilly shorts (last season, found on sale in Hawaii) ⎢Jack Rogers


dress (on sale in stores!, same dress different print linked) ⎢ silk dress

ruffle top (on sale in stores! different color available online)

After Lilly, I popped into Kate Spade to peek at their new arrivals and then went into Vineyard Vines as their Whale of a Sale was going on. I haven't been buying a ton at Vineyard Vines lately but I found this darling top that was under $30 during Whale of a Sale!



I pass by Trader Joe's on the way home from the mall so I stopped by to pick up a few things for my mom. They had so many peonies in front of the store and I, unlike many other bloggers, never can seem to find peonies in my local grocery stores so I was super excited to find some. I, of course, bought some ;)


Saturday morning, I slept in before going to a Pure Barre class. My dad had some of his team over for dinner and to swim in the pool (there was a lot of little kids!) Saturday night so I helped my mom get ready and also made these yummy Key Lime Pie Bars that I found on Pinterest (be sure to follow me here). The party wound up to be super fun as a bunch of the kiddos that I babysit came, which is always a good time! Not to mention, there was a plethora of dessert which always works for me ;)

Sunday was pretty laid back as I worked on some blog stuff and some college application stuff in the morning/early afternoon. Our family friends from Chicago were in town this week so I caught up with them for a while before I had to go in and get ready to go to a meeting for the service committee I'm the Vice President of. Our meeting was basically just starting to plan for the upcoming school year and thankfully wasn't too long!

On Monday, I worked in the afternoon so I was able to sleep in and get some blog stuff done before heading off to my typical noon Pure Barre class! After Pure Barre, I ran home to eat lunch and then went to a dentist appointment. After my appointment, I headed straight to pick up the boy I nanny from his preschool. He had swim lessons that night so we went there and then I headed back to my house. Monday is Bachelorette night so I ate dinner, showered, then watched that!

I nannied in the morning on Tuesday and went to Pure Barre that day as well. My afternoons have been equal parts blogging and prepping for college applications this week, so it's been fairly productive over here!


I worked mornings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, which is nice because I can finish working and go to Pure Barre before lunchtime! I spent the afternoon working on blog stuff again as I had quite a few posts to work on before leaving today. After dinner though, I met up with a friend at a local coffee shop as I'm lending her my Pre Calc book for the year and we decided to use that as a reason to catch up and get coffee! It's always so nice to just catch up with friends, especially since it's been a while!




Yesterday was our last day at home before leaving for our trip to New York today (I'll be en route as y'all read this) and so naturally it was very busy! I nannied in the morning and the boy I nanny and I decided to stop at Duck Donuts on the way to his preschool, which is always amazing. We both ate one there and I brought a few home for my family. After nannying, I went to Pure Barre, ate lunch, and packed all afternoon. We had a very early wakeup call this morning so I made sure to go to bed early on Thursday night!


On my Radar:

1. The Nordstrom Anniversary opens to the public today to be sure to get your shopping in and to check out my favorites that I shared in yesterday's post!

2. I absolutely love Kate's vlog of her recent trip to Paris!

3. My Vineyard Vines top that I wore in this Instagram post is now on sale for under $100

4. Apparently this is the week of me loving videos and sharing them with y'all as I also love Carly's Day in My Life video. Carly also just re-did her blog and it is gorgeous!

5. Usually I share a blog post or two that I love but this week, but I've read so many great ones this week so y'all should definitely follow me on Bloglovin to see what posts I'm saving!

Have you checked out my posts from this week yet?


Happy Friday y'all!
