I would love to invite you to link up with your favorite Halloween decor + treats — in hopes of inspiring some Halloween parties this weekend! I will keep Friday free for Fridays Fancies with AV + weekly wrap up posts. The link up will take place on Thursday the 27th or Monday the 31st? Do you have a preference? I’ll announce this Monday.

My best friend booked her second trip to Chicago & arrives in 4 days! So excited!

Yesterday’s FB status update: This wind is insane. If I lived in the country I would expect to see a cow fly by. Expecting 60 MPH winds. Oh, Chicago. You love to test me…

 Not ready for winter. But — we are prepared. The pup in his new coat. A pre-Christmas gift from the boyfriend.

I photographed Alex’s beautiful home a few weeks ago. My girl Alaina [ who was also featured on Refinery29 yesterday] styled the shoot and as always, I loved working with her. Here is a little peek. Obsessed.

I took a much needed day off on Wednesday. Went shopping with Liz [my friend/stylist] & Lesley [my friend/neighbor]. I never want to shop without Liz again and plan on scheduling an extensive closet consult when she returns from Europe. If you need help with personal styling, do not hesitate to contact her! I’ll share the pieces we picked up soon.

Two consults for upcoming photo shoots yesterday. Work has been crazy busy. So thankful + so exhausted.

Sephora by OPI keep me on my mistletoes. So cheery. I love Christmas. Can you believe it’s 2 months away?

Girls night with Anne tonight! Blogging, girl talk + all that good stuff.

New mouse pad from rouge & co. Isn’t she lovely?

Hoping I’ll make it to a pumpkin patch this weekend. Midwest pumpkin patches are the best. No celebs & paparazzi! 


What’s going on in your world this week?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
