A Very Flannel Galentine's Brunch

in , , by Lavender Elizabeth, March 31, 2020
To cap off Women's History Month, I'm sharing all about one of my favorite ways to celebrate women: Galentine's Day! This past February was my third annual Galentine's party. Each year, I try out something new: the first year was a slumber party, last year was a Favorite Things Party, and this year was all about flannel and brunch. We continued on the tradition of our favorite things, but switched up the other elements. All the details of our Galentine's Brunch are below.

Weekends Away in Austin

This time today, I was supposed to be sitting poolside in Las Vegas with friends, but obviously, the world had other plans. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, so I'm currently sitting at home reminiscing on past adventures. Over the past four months, I've taken two trips to visit my best friend in Austin. The first time, I went solo and the second, two girlfriends joined. Both trips included new parts of Austin to explore, plus some true favorites. If you're planning for the next time you can travel, my complete itineraries are below.

Shopping Finds: Spring Florals

Happy First Day of Spring!

One of my favorite things about spring is all the flowers that begin to bloom. I live across from Grant Park and I can't wait to walk through it, experiencing all the colorful blooms. Since I can't always be outdoors surrounded by the beauty, I love bringing florals indoors through my wardrobe and decor. They add just the right amount of pattern, while also adding springtime colors. In honor of the first day of spring, I'm sharing some of my favorite floral finds, including cute dresses, tea towels, and jean jackets. Enjoy my favorite shopping finds below.

Month in Photos - February

February was such a blur! We started off the month showering my sister with a tea party themed afternoon and ended with her amazing wedding. In between, I traveled to Pennsylvania, Texas, and of course, South Carolina, both for work and play. It was truly a wonderful month spent celebrating with family, enjoying Chicago in the winter, and visiting with friends. Below is a peak into my February.
