The Intern Life

by Gabi


Wearing: Trouser Pants, Urban Outfitters Tank, Steve Madden Heels, Sunglasses, Necklace

It's official guys, I'm an intern!! I have been so anxious to start my intersnhip at Skirt PR (a fashion/lifestyle/beauty PR Company in Chicago) for 2 reasons; (the obvious) to learn more about the industry/PR, but also to get a little more dressed up than my usual casual boho look! I went the trouser look: I have been obsessing lately over fun and cool trousers, so I grabbed these and dressed it up with a pair of heels and a bright fun tank! It was the perfect outfit to walk into the office in and feel confident on the first day! Anyone else an intern this summer? Let me know what you wore your first day!! XO

Wearing: PINKMINK Tacos and Tequila Tank, Urban Outfitters shorts, Black Booties (similar here) (as seen here & here), Free People Reflector Sunglasses, Thrifted Necklace (similar to here)

Tacos & Tequila… just two of my favorite things. So when my family and I stumbled upon this little mexican restaurant (Bel Air Cantina in Milwaukee) for brunch, I was one happy chica! This shirt was a coincidence… but how cute is it!! Loving this bright orange for summer and you all know I am a sucker for a good graphic!! The weekend was full of hanging in Milwaukee with the family and lots of good food, of course! What did you all do this weekend? Would love to know!!! Back to Chicago I go!!

Wearing: Old Blouse (similar here and here), Raw Hem Cut Offs, Thrifted Necklace (similar here), Braid Sandals, Old Hat (seen here and here), Straw tote (similar here and here)

The past few days here in Chicago have been full of sunshine and I finally feel like it's summer! I am all about fun accesories lately and straw bags are looking like a must have for me this summer. They are the perfect way to add a summer touch to an outfit and they are the right size to carry around an extra little bikini, sunscreen and cover up incase you find some extra time to soak up some rays! Also, my new thing- statment necklaces, I feel I can never have enough! I found this gem at the flea market this past weekend and man what a find it was- haven't taken it off yet. Well, hope wherever you're reading today's post your enjoying some sunshine, I certainly (time to get a tan)! Happy Hump Day xo!

Open Road

by Gabi

Wearing: Spell Gyspy Tank, Denim Cut Offs (as seen here and here), Crochet Flannel (as seen here), Free Bird Wyatt Boots, Vintage Concho Belt (similar here and here), Forever 21 Sunglass, Child of Wild Ring (also cool and similar), Forever 21 rings,

There's something about a road trip that I just love; open road, windows down and some good music. It puts my mind at ease. Today is a full day of driving as we only have 2 days to get to Chicago {learn about why I am heading there here}1 I My dad and I had to pull over to stretch our legs for a second so I took full advantage of getting some style pics. I got this Gypsy tee and big conch ring from my favorite San Diego store, Van De Vort {thank god for online shopping} and don't think I'll be taking either off this summer- my new favs!  Happy Friday fringers, xo!!
