Lime Green Eyelet Midi Skirt & Mom's Visit to IL!

My mom and stepdad came in last week for our family reunion in Elmwood Park. We are so blessed (my sister and I) to have family out in Illinois. With my mom, stepdad and dad back in Ohio (and Mike's parents in Michigan), we really don't get to be together too often during the year. I always cherish the time they spend in the Burbs and city of Chicago. We are lucky enough to be taken care of by our "Chicago" cuzzies! They do so much for us out here!

My mom and Gar are pretty much #CoupleGoals, don't ya think?
Gary has these Ralph Lauren shorts (I originally thought they were Lilly!), and I am so obsessed with them! They're too cute. Mom and Gar showed up at our apartment smiling ear to ear in their bright colors. Just adorable.
On mom: Lilly Pulitzer dress, in Multi Out to Sea print.  
Purse: Kate Spade (compliments of Anna and me, haha), smaller version here.
Shoes: Talbots, similar here

My shirt is old Banana Republic (like, really old-- 4+ years), but I've linked some equally fabulous tops above.  I love a silky, sleeveless top for work. The best part is you can wear it comfortably under a blazer (remember this?) or without anything over it for the warmer months. Loving this ruffle top to pair with a printed midi skirt.

I am really digging the midi-length of this eyelet skirt. It's old Loft, but I have linked some similar skirts for you! This is a similar bright color, and I love that pricetag! This will become a work staple, IMO. How fab are these pleats? And this design? Obsessed with this color and lace. Also, this one might be my favorite of all time! The midi length is perfect for being work appropriate. Also, it looks so nice with a sensible heel!

My shoes are the Majorca peep toe bootie. My absolutely favorite ever shoe by Toms! Just ordered the black pair yesterday!

Clutch is also old Banana-- purchased with that top. Haha! But, I am loving this Coach bag as a splurge in Kelly green or this perforated Kate Spade option!

Earrings: Old Stella and Dot, similar here

Hair adjusting, haha. 

Heading down to Preservation Bread and Wine. Have you ever been? You MUST try it if you haven't been yet! 

With two of the most important people in my life. 
Love them both so much! 

Does your family live nearby?
