Shopping for Summer Styles

I admit: most of my shopping happens online these days. Truthfully, I hadn’t visited a mall in over a year (!) — so when Woodfield Mall invited me to visit, I jumped on the opportunity. It didn’t take me long to realize what I’d been missing! Woodfield is one of the best and largest malls in our area (with nearly 300 stores and restaurants) including some of favorites, like Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Lululemon, Zara, Sephora, Z Gallerie, and many more. Plus: there’s something to be said about shopping and trying on in person, right?

My experience shopping Woodfield was so much fun. Scroll below for photos, along with a bunch of new styles I picked up for summer. Also, two stores that were my favorite from when I was in high school (10+ years ago) totally surprised me — and I ended up purchasing two cute dresses from each… can you guess the stores?
