.Missing In Action + Instagram Goodies.

My lovely readers: sincere apologies for missing in action the last couple of weeks! No excuses, but this month has been an exciting whirlwind doing the things I love most. I'm definitely one of those bloggers that follows the mantra of "don't post just for the sake of posting", but I also have to say I have neglected one of my biggest passions, that is Wear & Why. To assure you I haven't just been ignoring my pride and joy blog, take a look at a roundup of Instagram goodies below ;)

P.S. I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather here in Chicago this holiday weekend - Spring is finally in full bloom!


.1   I absolutely love a good fiction read. I try to breeze through one or two books a month and this 
best-seller was simply amazing! Great laughs and a wonderful story from a brilliant author - 
"Where'd You Go Bernadette" by Maria Semple

.2  I haven't baked in quite a long time, but baking is something I pour my hear into. Since the man and I watch our eating habits closely, I decided to make a paleo chocolate chip banana bread and it was DA BOM DOT COM! Email me for a recipe: nklevando@gmail.com

.3  Thanks to a lovely blogger buddy Zahra of lovezhara , I had the wonderful opportunity to present a segment on "How To Make Your Work Wardrobe Fun" at Woodfield Mall w/ Ann Taylor in prep for Mother's Day! So much fun!

.4  Can't tell you enough how much I cherish my closest gals. I finally had some quality time with my lovelies, without whom I would be a total stressed out mess. Love you girls!

Fashion on 53rd   One my dreams is coming to fruition - I have worked my tush off the last 5 months planning and prepping for Hyde Park's first ever Fashion Show. Fashion on 53rd, taking place next Friday, May 30th 6pm-8pm at Hyde Park Bank, will feature spring fashion from local boutiques, showcased by student models. I am beyond thrilled! Register here

.5  My Lola came to stay with me for a few days! She makes my heart flutter...but let me tell you, taking care of a puppy while working a full-time job is a job of its own!

.6  With My Love heading to the Cinq Dinner, wearing a glitzy neck piece from Nordstrom, last seen here

.7   At the Cinq secret dinner. Learn more about one of Chicago's best kept secret food + wine + social clubs here and take a look at The Watcher's photos from the last Cinq event, here

.8  Enjoying a tangy cocktail from Jenny & Rhine Hall Distillery at the launch of Buckley K, a women's travel-wear line started by two sisters who love to globe trot and were inspired by their traveling life to create American-made staples for women who travel!
