Summer Seen

Heading to Southern California tomorrow to take a break from the maddening treadmill I’ve been on lately orchestrating our move and everything else in-between.

Looking forward to filling you in on all the details when I return.

Until then, I hope you enjoy today’s image from my favorite city – my city – Chicago.

Have a great day! xo~M

House Hunting

House Hunting

Happy Monday, everyone! How was your weekend? I spent mine enjoying the beautiful weather and doing some house hunting.

Not sure where we’ll ultimately end up, but this home certainly would have knocked our socks off  had we been wearing any :)

Pretty breathtaking, right?!

Things That Caught My Eye This Week

Things That Caught My Eye This Week

Happy August, everyone! Seems crazy, doesn’t it?!! Summer is barreling down the road and as usual, there’s no stopping it.

I always get a pit in my stomach at this time of year. Reminds me of those impending back-to-school days that I typically dreaded.

As for my summer, it’s been pretty hectic. I’ve been traveling back and forth between two states, helping John get settled in a new business venture and preparing to move from my current home.

The fixer/caretaker in me always rises to the occasion to get everything that needs to be done, done, but all that doing has left me little time for anything else.  I look forward to sharing my thoughts on this major midlife transition with you in an upcoming post.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox~M

In the meantime, for your weekend perusal, here are some of the things that caught my eye from around the web this week -

{Not Quite} Vintage July

{Not Quite} Vintage July

Nine years doesn’t really qualify for my weekly vintage photograph of the week, but I’m making an exception since this is my anniversary month :)

REMEMBERING JACKIE

REMEMBERING JACKIE

Yesterday marked the birthday of one of my favorite style icons – Jackie Kennedy Onassis. She would have turned 85.

Jackie had an impeccable sense of style that, because it was typically understated, always looked effortlessly chic. She wore little jewelry, save for her signature pearl necklaces, and single-handedly put the pillbox hat on the fashion map. Her signature sunglasses and Hermés scarves were her wardrobe staples copied the world over.

Still, no matter the masses who have attempted to duplicate her look, none of us can deny there was no one quite like Jackie.

Bachelor Nick

Bachelor Nick

Little did I know that the Nick I photographed on a blustery afternoon last November would turn out to be the very same Nick taking so much flack on this season’s Bachelorette. I only recently discovered they were one in the same.
