{perfectly p.o.s.h}

I just got back from a long weekend in The Windy City! It was such a blast! I did so many wonderfully tourist things! My sweet beau took me everywhere I could have ever dreamed of going... I had an amazing trip to say the least!
Wicked at the Chicago Oriental
{which is SO beautiful}

Whiskey Sky on the 33rd floor of the W Hotel
{very 80s cool} for a refreshing strawberry mojito
Ed Debevic's
{50s style diner with "The World's Smallest Ice Cream Sundae" which is served in a glass egg cup that you get to take home with you - I opted for a chocolate milkshake}

{yummy hummus and crustini - the healthiest thing I found in all of Chicago}

Glenn's Diner
{breakfast ALL day! my FAVORITE!}

The Magnificent Mile aka Michigan Avenue
{from Chanel to pretty little chocolate shops - a must do!}

POSH Chicago
{wonderful vintage-meets-new boutique with perfect little gifts and home accessories - I picked up several things for myself!}

Navy Pier
{a long stretch of boardwalk with tons of yummy food carts, restaurants, boat tours and a giant Ferris wheel!}

{poetic licence}

I am completely in love with Poetic Licence, a UK shoe brand. Their shoes are so cute and feminine! My favorite pair is their Tilly pump. It's so pretty in the mocha color with ivory trim and a sweet little chocolate and white stripe bow! I really love the heel - it's so old-fashioned meets today - very proper pin-up!

{cupcake in the city}

I recently saw Sex in the City {the movie} and of course it was AMAZING! The clothes, the shoes, the style, everything!! I spotted so many things throughout the movie that I absolutely fell in love with... Doesn't every little girl {big and small} deserve a pink crystal Leiber cupcake clutch? A limited-edition no less... So fabulous...

If you have ever dreamed of being a sunkissed California girl look no further than Benefit! Benefit has come out with 3 new products that make it easy for anyone to achieve that laid back sunbleached Cali-girl look. Their Talk to the Tan facial tint provides an instant streak-free "just-got-back-from-the-beach glow that stays put until you wash it off! Polish off your beach bunny look with their NEW cheek stain, Posietint, which is the prettiest shade of petal-pink, and their California Kissin' lip gloss, a minty fresh aqua-blue that helps enhance pearly whites and freshen breath! Then get ready to pop on a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarers and hop on a boogie board like a true California babe!
