I've been fortunate to get to know so many new friends in Chicago and have realized what a beautiful and welcoming community there is here. When I was approached to host an event at Madewell in July it took me all of two seconds to reply back with a yes! I've used their transport tote for over a year as my everyday bag and it's all I ever hoped it would be. A simple, durable bag that doesn't resemble a diaper bag and can easily hold all that clutter a mom of two boys would accrue. Diapers, snacks, toys, you name it. What's even better is when we meet up with friends or have date night, I unload the kid's junk and I'm good to go! I know it seems silly to even point this out, but I adore this brand because their bags, clothes and accessories are truly made well and are made to last. 

A sincere thank you to everyone who came out that night and joined me in sipping on champagne, eating treats and shopping from the lovely Rush St. store in Chicago. I felt so loved! Special thanks to Madewell for letting me host such a fun night with friends and helping me select some of my favorite summer pieces. But really, if you have seen me at all this summer, you have probably seen me at least once in this stripe number. Most comfortable top I've ever owned.
