So I am going to start doing a weekly roundups of a few of my favorite things from the week each Friday. I thought it would be a fun way to end the week and definitely more exciting than a recap of what happened those days (my life is not that exciting). Here are my favorites for this week:
Favorite Meal – I just had the best dinner at Frontera Grill. It’s Rick Bayless’ restaurant here in Chicago that serves creative and delicious Mexican food. I had the skirt steak tacos, but perhaps the best part of my meal was the champagne margarita. Now I am thinking I am going to have to make my own champagne margs sometime soon!
Favorite purchase – I actually bought this last week, but it just arrived so I’ll count it for this one. I ordered this CeCe by Cynthia Steffe floral print drop waist dress from Rue La La, and I love it! It’s so perfect for spring or the summer, plus it was on super sale. It’s from last season, so you can’t really buy it anymore unless you’re really lucky and happen to stumble upon it, but this is a great alternative (also on sale!) or this is also really cute for the colder days of spring.
Favorite discovery – I follow a lot of book Instagram accounts, and maybe I am super late on this, but I love these Penguin Drop Caps. How beautiful would they look lined up on a bookshelf? They’d also make the perfect gift. Pretty pricey for the whole collection, but what an amazing thing to own.
Favorite GIF – I am a little too obsessed with GIFs. What did we ever do without them?! The below GIF pretty adequately sums up my week (I am eating some Girl Scout cookies before beginning a Biggest Loser challenge that starts in my office next week).
