friday's fancies #35.

happy friday!!! i am sooo excited to celebrate my brother andy's birthday and finally meet my younger brother's girlfriend this weekend! i will also be celebrating my new job!!! starting in october, i will be returning to the corporate world as a marketing coordinator and event planner at a large law firm. and i am ecstatic... i have loved working on blog redesigns and as a part-time marketing consultant but i MISSED the bustle of downtown, multiple deadlines, color-coding my calendar, o..and a sizable paycheck (call me crazy). i also hope some professional event planning experience will help make future rendez-vous events even more successful. SO no worries chickadees i love cornflake dreams + all of you so i will do my best to keep up with everything and i will still be taking design requests in my spare time.


whew! now that the big announcement is over...back to fashion! the weather in chicago is suppose to warm up a bit so i am excited to be wear my new eShakti dress. if you never checked out eShakti do it. you can order standard sizes OR customize your size to ensure the perfect fit (at a reasonable price-under $10!).

eShakti dress $54, leopard flats $250, bag $265, earrings $75


what are your weekend plans?
xo, 
jillian


ps you have a few more days left to enter the Very LoveLeigh Cowl giveaway!
