Say hello to my new favorite tank. I had been searching for something like this for a while now but could never find anything less than a few hundred dollars. This super affordable version (less than $15) is great quality and so comfortable. I’ve already worn it a few times and thrown it in the wash and it’s doing just fine. For fun trendy pieces like this Sheinside ruffle top I love finding them online at places like Forever 21 since investing in trends is almost never a good idea.

I was beyond excited for Trevor to be off work this last weekend. I had been traveling and he has been on call the last few weeks so to have some quality time together was amazing. We ran some errands like responsible adults on Saturday and then headed to the West Loop to enjoy our afternoon.

We stopped by Nando’s Peri Peri & grabbed a table outside on the patio for lunch. It was our first time and we loved the food but I did think it was a little pricey for an ‘order yourself’ spot. We both got the chicken (mine hot, his medium) and loved the marinade. We were overdosing on chicken already so didn’t try the wings but I think I would go back for those.

After lunch and some cocktails we wandered over to Cone and treated ourselves to some ice cream which you may have seen on Instagram. Oh my word was it good and we will definitely be back – the staff was so sweet. We tried the blueberry cheesecake and brownie batter and I can’t wait to go back and try the soft serve and flavored Popsicle’s. It was such a cute spot a few blocks off Randolph and has a cute patio!

Hope you guys have a great start to the week and I hope this adorable heart mural brightens your day like it does mine! Let me know if you snag this Sheinside ruffle top and I would say it runs true to size!

    I like that you didn’t put it over your arms (the top). Looks better that way in my opinion 🙂
