Links I Love: Week 28

ralphs chicago coffee

Chicago finally got a good coffee spot, Ralph’s by Ralph Lauren serves coffee before 10 am. I loved visiting this spot in NYC and they brought it to Chicago. You can see by the look on my face I am pretty happy about the situation. I met my friend Meghan for a cup of cold brew Friday morning. The outside patio is open with the coffee cart but come Winter, they will serve coffee in their bar area. This is one of my favorite spots in Chicago. They have jazz playing inside with a fire place. Put this on your Chicago list if you are visiting! 

My favorite bag that I literally carry every day now has an organizational insert. This means no more digging for keys and my water can stay put far from my lap top. This is genius. 

10 Women Who Defy the ‘French-Girl Beauty’ Trope (I LOVED this so much) It is so true. The French girl isn’t what we see in photographs. These women are real. Bravo to Glamour for putting this out.

What to do in Paris in July

I just added this print to the Print Shop

Miznon, one of my favorite places I discovered on my last trip to Paris has opened a second location on Canal St Martin. 

This is my next Hotel discovery, A hidden gem in the 8th arrondissement. I am not sure if it has reopened yet. I emailed them to book something. It looks adorable!!

Last week’s Links I Love was such a good one and I am afraid with the World Cup celebrations it didn’t get seen as much as the normal week’s. It is one of my favorites so I highly recommend taking the time to browse through the links.

Nordstrom Anniversary Purchases

My 5th pair of Blondos. I swear by them. I needed a short pair of brown boots so these were a great option at $99. 

I ended up buying this bra in nude and also bought a new strapless bra. 

I have been using a lash serum for about two months now and I have been really happy with the results. I decided to try NeuLash from Nordstrom since I have heard great reviews. It was buy one get one free so now is the chance to try! 

Zella leggings, I bought one in each color at $35 a piece. I love them and will wear them all the time. I work out daily so having a good supply of workout clothes are necessary.
