Blue Crush

Currently wearing:

Shop this look: Veronicam dress // Nordstrom bangle (similar) // Zara sandals
Rebecca Minkoff bag // Madewell necklace

I am loving this simple navy dress because there are so many ways to style it! You can add a colorful, lightweight scarf and a fedora for a day of shopping, or dress it up for work with a classy pearl necklace and nude pumps. Here, I styled it with a gold, lariat-style necklace, edgy bag (I love how the two blues complement each other!) and sparkly sandals for a relaxed yet refined dinner look.

Currently craving:

A brown butter almond brittle and wildberry lavender ice cream cone from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. I went home to STL for the Fourth of July weekend and while there, I went to dinner in the Central West End with friends. We stumbled upon Jeni's (389 N. Euclid) and are officially obsessed with its unique flavors and inviting atmosphere. Upon returning to Chicago, I discovered there are two Jeni's locations in Southport and Wicker Park! I will definitely be making another trip soon.

And of course, when I discovered that Sprinkles Cupcakes (50 E. Walton) introduced #theSprinkle cupcake in honor of their 10th anniversary, I took a cab there right after work! Anyone who knows me understands my obsession with sprinkles and birthday cake-flavored things — and this sweet treat was no exception.

Currently reading:

"Little Bee" by Chris Cleave. Well, technically, I finished it in a day — that's how great it was. I could give you a summary but I don't want to spoil the story. I will say it is a book that really put into perspective what I think my "problems" are, and what some people in the world actually face on a day-to-day basis. Read it and thank me later!

Currently coveting:

Everything Kendra Scott! Scott's jewelry line adds a classy pop of color to any outfit. I just bought the Elle Earrings in Periwinkle, and I love that the translucent blue color goes with nearly everything! Next on my list is this magenta statement necklace.

xo, Annabeth
