There is nothing that screams "summer" to me more than gingham-- particularly red or pink gingham! It just reminds me of a picnic in the park :) I scooped up this gingham shirt
at the J.Crew Outlet a few weeks ago for about $29, during one of their frequent (and incredible!) 50% sales. I wore this outfit to help my sweet friend Jackie find her wedding dress. It was perfect for lunch on a rooftop patio at Old Towne
in Geneva (we had the best new salads and summertime sangria!) and the time we spent at Crystal Bride
(that's where I got my wedding dress, too
! With the help of Kayla, also! She is a genius. If you are a bride-to-be, let me get you in touch with her!).
Selfies in the Crystal Bride showroom! I stood on the same platform in front of the same mirror when I tried on my dresses.
How adorable is she? Jackie looked absolutely radiant in every dress she tried on. But, she found HER DRESS! Downright gorgeous!
Hair flip! Hahaha.
I layered my MFM Moon and Lola necklace
in mirrored gold (compliments of my amazing big sis) with this beautiful pearl necklace. I actually received the pearl necklace
a few years ago from one of the most amazing students and his parents (seriously, the most generous end-of-the-year gift I could ever imagine). It's from State Street Jewelers
-- another must-go-to in Geneva. The necklace is dainty and delicate, but it layers perfectly with other necklaces.

So in love with these Francesca's earrings! I couldn't bring myself to buy the gorgeous $65 J. Crew
ones, but I found these at Francesca's
in Lincoln Park when my bestie Court was visiting, and I am SO glad I purchased them!
Jean shorts aka Jorts: old Gap, similar here
Toms madras peep-toe wedges: old, similar styles here- on sale!
and here- also on sale!
I didn't know what to do with my legs. Haha! It was senior pictures all over again.
Tried the "half-tuck" that J. Crew is known for, but I ended up just looking sloppy. Haha! Hard to pull off, IMO.
