Photo Diary: 24th Birthday Celebration in Chicago

My 24th birthday at Maggiano's in Chicago

Berry tiramisu (my friend Nadia ordered this and I snuck a few bites--ahh, it was sweet and creamy and perfect!)

I had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday in Chicago! Spending my birthday away from home is rare, so I was super grateful to be able to spend it with my sister, her friend Carmen, and my friend Nadia. We had dinner and dessert at Maggiano's (I tried everyone's food and desserts, and they were all so delicious and rich) and walked around Millennium Park. I've been to the Bean so many times already, but I don't care--I love it.

Oh yeah, and I may have done a bit of shopping...
I know I was trying not to shop for this month, but I totally gave in on my birthday! Ack. I lasted 3 out of the 4 weeks though (yay?) for June. I should've never stepped into H&M and Topshop, but I did. Whoops.

(I got a sheer chiffon button-down shirt in nude from H&M and a suede scalloped crossbody bag from Topshop. Totally worth it)

Enjoy your Friday!
