Mint & Magenta

The majority of my Monday was spent driving through Illinois so I chose a super comfy outfit. This top is essentially a sweatshirt, but looks a tad bit more dressed-up.

I spent the morning at my parents house… drove to Champaign to get my hair done… then drove back to Chicago. I am in love with the girl who does my hair in Champaign (I started going to her a few years ago when I was at U of I) and it’s about half the price of most salons in Chicago. The price difference definitely justifies the drive, but I try to schedule my appointments around going home for a visit so it works out pretty well!

Daisy, of course, wanted to be in the pictures and she was being extra photogenic for the camera! She’s such a babe. :)

My mom and I had to take pictures inside because it was way too windy outside. They say Chicago is the “Windy City,” but I think it’s just as windy at my house. My parents live way out in the country with little-to-no surroundings and it gets pretty gusty!

    One of the photos of you and the Daze (Daisy) should be printed and properly displayed at the biz in your home town! Your mom did a super job. Love the mint color – dee-lish! I still don’t see any bobby sox – – ha! Just kidding.
