Links I Love Week 4

Chicago was a snow globe this week with snow flurries and a few inches every day. It was a great chance to get Henri out for playdates in the park. I typically cook at home during the week and ended up having some reservations out for Restaurant week and plans with friends. I was able to try some new restaurants in the city including Ciccio Mio an adorable Italian spot.

I have been working on my work-from-home schedule for 2023 and I am slowly making progress. A few fun working opportunities popped up at the end of the week that was unexpected. Fingers crossed they both work out and I can share more details soon!

My Sunday plans are to finally clean out my closet or at least make progress. I will have to make a Target and Container Store run for some organizational items and make a donation pile.

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for links I love.

The new Sézane collection launches today and it is so good! There is a Rebecca cardigan that I need to check out and some really fun pants. I don’t own any of their trousers or jeans and am curious to try them. I find their bottoms to be very reasonably priced. I am ordering these jeans in a size 28. Since I am 5’6″ it is recommended I take the long version. I love this Max shirt with a pair of denim and ballet flats this spring and this cardigan.
