The weekend is over and what a fun one it was! The weather in Chicago played nice long enough for us to play outside for a little bit. Brian and I played tourists in the city and rode bikes all around town. We rode to the park, walked around and avoided tourists where we could 🙂 Since the weather called for bare legs, I dusted off this eyelet skirt and took it for a ride – literally. Since riding with a skirt isn’t entirely functional (who cares), I paired the skirt with my new favorites sneaks – these adidas Originals Stan Smith Sneaker.
It was so nice to finally be able to walk outside – I can’t remember the last time we have been able to do that since the Fall. As you know from my many complaints on the blog, the weather is never cooperative in Chicago and usually lends itself to more hours in bed. I couldn’t resist a chance to wear my new white lace skirt – it was a super find for only $22!!! Now, I love a good pair of heels, don’t get me wrong, but I’ll always pair a sneakerwith a skirt first. Adding these adidas Originals Stan Smith Sneaker to the look was the perfect pairing for our touristy day!
We started the day at our favorite neighborhood coffee shop La Colombe – if you ever get the chance to go, order the Draft Latte. It’s like a coffee happy hour, but at 8am! After we had our coffee, we made our way over to the Little Goat – our brunch go-to! We got lucky and walked right in – sometimes the wait can be well over an hour. Once we had fuel in our system, it was time to ride!
We rented some city bikes and drove straight towards the park. We wandered in places we’ve never seen and took some pics along the way. Chicago, I’m so ready for warmer weather and green grass, so, hurry up 🙂
