Casey’s Summer Wedding Wish List


This year marks an exciting time in my life as many of my close friends are starting to get married. After the engagement, the celebrations continue for months, from bridal showers to bachelorette parties and finally, the wedding weekend. With half of my summer weekends already booked with these events, I’m planning ahead to ensure I have all the essentials a bridesmaid/wedding guest needs.

CALPAK Davis Carry-On
I’ve been on the hunt for a new carry-on suitcase for a while but haven’t been able to commit. This one is chic, practical and the price is right.

Miss Selfridge Rhinestone Bow Back Sandals
I haven’t started shopping for outfits, but it’s a given that neutral shoes will be essential for all summertime soirees. I love that these are simple with a feminine twist.

Jen Atkin X Chloe + Isabel Pearl Pin Set
I love a good hair accessory and will definitely rock these on the reg this summer.

Sonix Preston Sunglasses
No matter the weather, I rarely go outside without sunglasses on and always like to cop a new pair for summer. I’m obsessed with this lighter tortoise option paired with gold framing.

Vans Classic Slip-On Sneakers
A good pair of slip-ons is key for airport travel and Vans have been a longtime favorite. The next addition to my collection will definitely be blush pink.

Cheers Foam Cups
I’m all about festive drinkware, so I’m stocking up on these for all the bridal festivities in my near future.


Molly’s Winter Wish List


With a winter getaway on the books and a resolution to finally nail down an all-encompassing skincare routine, I’ve got a few things on my wish list I’ve been eyeing lately.

Marble One-Piece Swimsuit
My family is headed to Bonita Springs, Florida next month so a new swimsuit is in order. I’ve been wanting to make the switch to one-pieces for a few seasons, so I’m taking the plunge with this classic black one.

Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment
Confession: I purchased this product when I was 22 and didn’t see the change I was hoping for, but I’ve heard too many rave reviews to not give it a second chance. Round two, here we go!

A steady hand is a must when snapping photos for my clients’ social profiles. The Skirt Social team is loving these little gadgets and they’re available in endless colors and patterns.

Gold Floor Lamp
Sprucing up my apartment is also on my to-do list this year. This gold floor lamp will give me some much-needed lighting in my living room.

Andrea Round Toe Pumps
I’m more of a flats girl, so these low-heeled, lace-up pumps were an easy compromise for me. I could easily wear them to the office or to brunch on the weekends.

What about you? What have you been pining after lately?


Wish List: House Décor Edition


I never thought I would be more intrigued in browsing a home furniture store than a clothing store. Now, the time has come after my husband and I recently purchased our first home. Here are a few items that are on my wish list.

Society Social Stool
The perfect way to add more seating to a living room is with an ottoman or stool. Although this particular stool is sold out, I will be on the lookout for its twin!

Lulu & Georgia Rug
I love the different ways people are decorating with this sheepskin rug. I personally want to hang it over our dining room bench for a little extra cushion.

One Kings Lane Shelving Unit
We are in need of a shelving unit in our living room to display some of our wedding gifts and pictures. This would be the perfect addition!

White Faux Taxidermy Deer Head
We recently purchased a bar cart from West Elm and now need something to go on the wall above. This faux deer head with gold antlers will complement the bar cart’s color scheme well!

Furbish Studio Pillows
I love colorful pillows in a neutral space because they can add just the right pop.

Lauren’s Fall Wish List


Fall is my absolute favorite season and unlike the rest of the world, it’s not because of Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I just can’t get on board!) I live for fall fashion. There is nothing better than a chunky knit paired with a great pair of boots. I need to move somewhere where there is fall weather year-round!

Gucci Princetown Mule Loafer
I mean who ISN’T lusting over this shoe? I can’t pull the trigger on buying them (because, groceries) but that’s not going to stop me from walking around the Nordstrom’s shoe department in them…again.

Grey Jason Wu Intarsia Bunny Wool Blend Sweater
When I found out one of my favorite artists, Hunt Slonem, was partnering with designer Jason Wu for his new Grey line, I basically threw all of my credit cards at my computer screen. How amazing is this bunny sweater? It’s begging to be styled with my leather mini and over-the-knee boots.

Yves Saint Laurent Nail Lacquer in Vintage Plum
A deep nail color is a must for fall. I think I can handle this berry color.

Coach Tea Rose Applique Crossbody
I went through an aggressive Coach bag phase from age 14 to 17 and swore I’d never buy another one again…until this happened. Stuart Vevers is the best thing to ever happen to that brand.

Karen Walker Super Duper Sunglasses
Okay, I already bought these. But everyone needs a pair of chic sunglasses for fall, right?

What fall fashions are you adding to your closet this year?


Casey’s Summer Shopping List


As Chicago attempts to bring on warmer weather, I’m slowly but surely preparing for spring and summer. While I tend to stick to basics with my outfits, accessories are another story. Here are a few pieces I’m lusting after lately:

Illesteva “Palm Beach” Sunglasses
Chic sunnies in the ideal shade of blonde? Yes, please!

Jacquie Aiche Double Bone Horn Necklace
I’ve been lusting after Jacquie Aiche’s designs since pre-twerking Miley Cyrus wore one of her necklaces on the red carpet. Finally, the brand has released a more affordable version of their signature pendant! I can’t wait to layer this with some of my other dainty necklaces.

Jeffrey Campbell ‘Despina’ Strappy Sandal
When it comes to sandals, I’m a gladiator girl through and through. Throw in a chunky heel for stability and a touch of fringe, I’m sold.  I also love that these come in a pretty shade of purple-y taupe, making them a great neutral option.

Eugenia Kim ‘Wish You Were Here’ Straw Sun Hat
…And this is why we’re calling this a “wish list”. There’s no future in which I drop almost $500 on a beach hat but it’s still fun to imagine, right?

Tory Burch ‘Bombe’ Foldover Clutch
In the summer I’m all about a crossbody bag. Toss in my phone, card case, keys, SPF and a punchy lip color and I’m set for a day strolling through the city. (Should I need to carry a few more things, I reach for a smaller version of my signature Longchamp tote. I’m loving this fun lemon/lime shade!)

Kate Spade Leather ‘Cocktail’ Keychain
I have this thing with keychains. The bigger, the better – which is probably why I love this cheeky piece from KSNY!

Burberry Beauty ‘Gold Glow’ Powder
I’ve recently upped my highlight game and have been stocking up on illuminating products. Say what you will about the Kardashians, but their cheekbone glow is inspiring! While I’ve been loving the products I have (the Anastasia Glow Kit and MAC ‘Lightscapade’ are favorites) this gorgeous Burberry powder might find its way into my makeup bag.

Urban Outfitters ‘Pina Colada’ Hair Clip
Warmer weather is not always kind to long layers, so finding cute ways to pull my hair back is always a springtime task. This little clip will add a little fun to any outfit and match my ice-cold cocktail perfectly!
