Outfit Post: BBQ and Shopping

John and I somehow successfully got every single one of our favorite loves over to our house last night for a delicous BBQ complete with flowing margaritas. After loads of hotdogs and hamburgers, we all gathered around to play Celebrity. The night was such a blast. My sister, her hubby, and our best family friend from Chicago slept over. We woke up to go eat at my favorite brunch spot, Grub and then went to stroll and shop in Larchmont Village. (If you live in LA and have not been to Grub... Go! It will change your life. It's a total hole in the wall). I hopped in one of my favorite stores of all time on Larchmont, Library, and spent way too much money. Oops. Let's just call it my "spring spree" I guess? I honestly don't know how to rationalize it! When Lize was in town last, I think we bought all the jewelery they had in the store. We made massive BFF bracelet stacks out of what we bought there! I will do a store spotlight on them later as I promised the owner I would! All their pieces are seriosuly unreal. All in all, it has been a pretty perfect 24 hours! Now I am just popping this quick post up for all you and off to work for a few hours. Then my weekend starts!!! Hooray!  Hope you all are having a fabulous day! Much love!

PS: I just woke up to several ecstatic texts from Liza exclaiming some very exciting news. Of course I would never keep it from you all! Refinery 29 Chicago Edition has featured us in their "Today's Hot Story" for "The Best Blogs in Chicago", (we are on page 5). This is such an honor and we are so happy to be making our hometown proud! Yay Chi-Town! We love you and are glad you are enjoying our blog! Much love to Refinery29 and Chicago's editor, Shani Silver!

A few snaps from the BBQ:
 With my newest love, Erin. She is an amazingly talented writer and the creator of StyleSectionLA.com. Go check it out! It is the best local LA website. So witty and well written! There is nothing that they don't cover! I am beyond addicted and read it every morning with my coffee. Not kidding.
With my sister, Allison and my surrogate sis Gaby. We grew up next to each other so we are basically all sisters. Love it.
Scott, Alfy and Clint. These three men complete me. My best freinds in the whole world. I don't know how I would have survived in LA without them, so this is a man BFF sandwich right here. I live for this photo.  Alll that was missing was my Lize. Come back boo! I miss you!
