besties reunion in chicago

My group of college sorority sisters and I talk all the time in our 87 different group chats, but we only get to all 6 be together once a year. This year we chose Chicago as our destination and I'm still on Cloud 9 from it! Still exhausted, but on Cloud 9. Here's a recap from the weekend:

After forcing myself to not be a diva and take the train, we got drinks at a cute Speakeasy-type place called Sparrow then obviously had to get deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati's. We were eagerly awaiting Abby to get in town because we planned a surprise engagement party for her! She's the first one of us to get engaged, so obviously we had to go all out.

Um, can we talk about how perfect of a ring shot this is?!

Friday we went to Lincoln Park Zoo (surprisingly free, how cool is that?!) then scampered all around Chicago. Drinks at Cindy's Rooftop was so cool because you got such a great view of the city! Had some delicious tacos at Mercadito, and then ended the night at a really fun supper club called Untitled

Then on Saturday there was no shame in our Basic game and we had brunch at the insta-famous "Rosé all day" place aka The Hampton Social. It was even ironically National Rosé Day! What are the odds?! The whole place was so cute I was obsessed. Definitely recommend for a girls' day out. 


Obviously the Southerner in me had to get chicken and waffles. So good! 


Sunday was a very sad day because I had to go home back to LA. But hopefully I can convince the crew to come here for next year's reunion!

A day in Beverly Hills

Two of the best parts about being in the creative industry: 1) you live in a big city where every weekend is an adventure 2) your other creative friends come to said city for work trips. A friend from school is in town, so some of us got together this past weekend and explored a little of the oh-so-fab Beverly Hills. It was the perfect day for my inner Bougie Diva: lunch at Barney's followed by coffee at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And since I can't live that lifestyle every day (Prada taste on an H&M budget, amirite?), I had to document it. Enjoy.
