What I Wore: Grey Leopard Print + Knit Pencil Skirt

With highs still lingering in the 80s it's no surprise my uniform as of late has consisted of casual tees, knit skirts, and comfortable wedges. This is one of my go-to outfits on days when I have absolutely nothing to wear; it's casual enough for errands or shopping but you can easily add a cardigan and closed toe heels for work. Going out? Add sky-high metallic pumps and eye-catching statement earrings.

An Afternoon at Chestnut Hill Square

Last week I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon at Chestnut Hill Square with Khatu of I Am Khatu. I had never been to Chestnut Hill Square before so it was quite the treat! We started our afternoon with lunch at the elegant Capital Grille... (keep reading for a chance to win lunch for two at The Capital Grille at Chestnut Hill Square!)

We dished over fresh salads, truffle fries, and a delicious white wine at the recommendation of our server, Jacques. We both ordered from their lunch plates menu; the portions were perfectly sized and my beef tenderloin sliders were juicy and tender. The lobster roll was picture perfect as well!

I loved the classic, lounge atmosphere of the restaurant and was especially pleased with the service. We were just about to leave when Jacques brought over this beautiful dessert plate with a decadent flourless chocolate cake and cheesecake. The traditional cheesecake was my favorite, I highly recommend completing your meal with a slice!

Following lunch we did a little shopping in the square, stopping at Sail Loft & Francesca's Collection. I went home with a stunning neon statement necklace from Francesca's that I'm sure you'll be seeing on the blog soon.  

After shopping we stopped by one of my favorite local cupcake shops, Sweet for coffee and cupcakes. Their lemon blueberry cupcake is a delicious summer indulgence! And their staff is always so helpful and accommodating. (You can read more about Sweet here.) 

All in all I would say it was a lovely afternoon and I'm very much looking forward to my next trip to Chestnut Hill Square! They have so much more to offer including several additional dining options, fitness destinations, and of course, more shopping. Have you been to Chestnut Hill Square before? Which shop is your favorite?

What I Wore: Tobey Grey

I've pretty much been living in these white J Brand jeans all summer long. They're my go-to for evening soirees, casual Friday, and summer beach trips. I've also worn this Tobey Grey vegan leather tank at least twice since I got it at the Tobey Grey sale last week. It's surprisingly versatile and adds a little edge and festivity to evening looks.
