With work, the pups, my blog, and this crazy Chicagoland weather I hardly find the time to get outside and explore. This past Sunday, my mom, sister, and I took a few hours to spend some time in a small town near us. I thought I’d snap a few pics and tell you all a little about what we did! See below for more..
Before leaving, I decided to slip on my favorite pair of shoes I purchased recently. I grabbed these at Target for under $25! They were such a steal. I couldn’t resist the suede material, blush color, and the fact they’re very comfortable + so easy to slip on. I paired these with some jeans and an oversized crew neck!
Once we got into town, we wandered over to one of my favorite coffee spots, Hansa. I was so excited they had their seasonal flavor out, which of course, was pumpkin spice. I ordered an iced chai tea latte with a few pumps of pumpkin. And if you know me, you understand my slight addition to chai tea lattes lately. I’m overly obsessed!
I wasn’t able to snap a pick of my own drink but I did get this shot of my mom and sisters. I’m pretty sure they both stuck with a simple hazelnut latte. Probably equally as good as my chai I’d assume. Take a moment to appreciate this latte art!
After coffee I wanted to check out some of the small boutiques. I didn’t find anything I was willing to splurge on but it was cool seeing a few items I’ll be putting on my Christmas list! Speaking about the holidays, am I the only one amazed at the stores bringing out their decor earlier than expected?! Bath and Body Works already has their winter scents out! That’s just so crazy to me! Time is flying by!
This day gifted us with the perfect Fall weather. The three of us were bundled in light sweaters and scarves but were warm enough that we could still walk outside. It was easily one of the best days of the week as far as functionality went.
With outfits and accessories on the brain, I thought I’d point out one of my go-to necklaces. I’ve been eyeballing jewelry that’s simple, elegant, whimsical, and light weight. This piece from Tiny Lumber is exactly that. The geometric design is modern and dainty + being made out of wood makes it feel like you’ve got nothing on. Don’t you hate the feeling of heaviness with some other pieces?!
I had my sister wear it with her outfit and it matched great! Tiny Lumber has so many other designs to choose from that are just as beautiful as this one so make sure to check their site out here!

After being out all afternoon long, I ran home to my dogs for a little Sunday football. While I was shopping, I scooped them these frosted football pup treats! They couldn’t have been more excited and I was definitely ready to just relax. The cookies kept them occupied for quite sometime and calmed their nerves from being alone for so long! Is anyone else a devoted dog mom like I am?!
