I’m one happy kid today! This summertime Chi weather has got me all like (smiley emojis). I think if you are a Chicagoan the weather has a direct effect on your mood that day – right? We all can finally emerge from our dens to and enjoy the heat, sunshine and summer fashion! Eeek! I’ve gone on a shopping spree stocking up on all things summer – live in the moment right? I’m kick off this summer fever with likely my favorite twinset in the game – this vertical striped twinset is perfect and light for any hot summer night. And it’s under $40. You’re welcome. Pair it with a straw boater hat and you look like your half-way to Paris!
This weather certainly makes it more enjoyable to spend time outside of your home! We have explored our neighborhood more and have wandered to new restaurants in the neighborhood! AND everything is green! Honestly, I probably sound like and idiot talking right now, but it’s the little thing in Chicago that make us happy. It’s not often plants are living and the sun is shining. Why do I live here? For this time of year only 🙂
I paired the twinset with some of my favorite summer accessories! You can always get good use out of a straw hat right? This straw boater hat from Nordstrom is a great shading device on those sunny days – I love it’s Parisian flare! Anything that takes me to Paris is two seconds I’m all for!
As I get older, I’m less and less into the big heavy bag. I’m all about minimalism today – in my wardrobe, in my house, in my bag, in my life! This hands free Michael Kors bag is a dream! It holds only what I need which is great! I did have a mini panic attack when we left the restaurant – I thought I left my bag, but there is was, tied around my waist the whole time 🙂 It will take some getting used to thats for sure!
Ok can we now talk about this amazing mural? The artist is Lauren Asta whose is amazing at her craft! Check our more of her work here. This wall is actually located next to the train I get on for work every day – it makes me smile every time I walk past it and is such a great reminder that I love my neighborhood. The West Loop is the best Loop my friends – it really is.
