rainy mondays and floral flourishes


Wow, Chicago has gotten so many rainy days, lately! The flowers, grass, and trees are in full summer bloom! Rainy Mondays always have me feeling cozy and calm. I wore a floral skirt and breezy top to celebrate the rainy warmth and full bloomed flowers that are gracing us with their presence. “Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.” -John Updike

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) It’s about that time when offices start blasting their summer air conditioning, which always means light layers for me. I like to pair cardigans and/or light blouses with skirts and sandals for a professional air conditioning proof professional look. 

2) This month’s manicure link-up (#monthlymani) theme is “summer picnic.” Despite the rainy and overcast days, I decided to go full blown neon with my nails this week. I even added sunglasses, complete with glitter. Below is a picture of my summer nails; check-out the other #monthlymani girls for their summer picnic themed nails!
