HI LILLIES! Missed you all 😀 I feel like I’ve been absent for quite some time (I’m sure you were getting used to those daily posts). But I’m back on the work grind and I NEED to film some shopping/ shoe hauls for you! Chicago was the best four day weekend in a LONGGGGGGGG time. More pictures to come!! Especially those outfits 😉 But here is what I wore on day one of Chi-town’s train excursions.

This was taken on my mom’s camera! Great Samsung quality, I know!

Rock of Ages~Chicago edition

Rock on…Tom Cruise?

The above promo image is of the movie set to release in a few short weeks! If you are not familiar with ROA, sorry for party rockin’! JK hahaha but all jokes aside..I’m pumped because my mom and I have tickets to see the broadway musical in Chicago 🙂 Nope, not New York but Chi-town! When I asked my aunt which musicals were showing in the Windy City she said this one. I really had my eye on Evita but that wasn’t showing 😦 Post living in New York I’ve been dying to see the Rock musical ever since!

Now I have the chance and I’m pretty sure I’ll be clueless the whole time they’re singing 80’s beats but that’s OKAY! What I lack in eighties culture I’m sure someone will be jiving in the theater seats. But do you know what I’m MORE excited about than previewing the musical? Putting my edgy rocker spin on something floral! Feast your eyes on my outfit I plan to style for the return of classic rock and turn up that Aerosmith! BD
