Outfit: Christian County Fair

Being home for the county fair in my home town, Taylorville, Illinois has been a blast. My cousins all came home to Illinois this week and I came home from Chicago to spend the week with them. We have grown into quite unique personalities and I love when we are all together bouncing jokes and old stories off each other and laughing. Being around my cousins is one of my favorite things in the entire world. This is an outfit I photographed before visiting the fair on Friday night with my cousins. I can't wait to see what the future will hold for this family... all I know is that family is the most important thing in the world to me. 
Outfit Details: Crop top made by me, Paulie Antiques

Chicago Hangs Lately

 Iced Pour Overs from Gaslight Coffee Roasters in Logan Square c/o Popular Pays, too! So yum!
 Peyton with her blueberry pie to go ♥.
Coffee & a waffle from The Winchester also c/o Popular Pays. I LOVED this place! I'm traveling home on the train tomorrow back to Taylorville to see my cousins. I haven't seen them all together in 5 years so expect a huge cousins photo shoot!
love, polly 


My Sister Zahra Visits Chicago & Chicago Lately

Zahra came to visit Chicago yesterday and we had the best time watching the performance of the show I assisted costumes on called Brigadoon at the Goodman Theatre in downtown Chicago. We attended the fancy inclusive company party afterwards where we had tons of free wine and food. We explored Bucktown by Wicker Park this morning and had these fabulous pancakes and fruit pictured below. It's been a year or so since I've seen her, and I really missed her so much!
These polariods were taken by my friend Kim just before July 4th. We had the best night dancing in Boystown and drinking half price martinis. Summer is so good right now! I've really been living in the moment and exploring the city as much as I can. Now that I've completed my internship with the Goodman Theatre, I'm looking into other theatres in Chicago and looking for a waitressing job. How is your summer so far?
love, polly
