Summer Best

posted on: Friday, August 26, 2016

Happy Friday, friends! Before we say farewell to summer, I want to thank you for reading these past months and share some of the posts you loved best. My summer began with a big road trip out west and continued here home in Chicago, enjoying the lake and beach, summer holidays and festivals, and exploring the city with friends and family. Some of my favorite warm-weather pieces I wore again (and again) were this colorful maxi dress, these blocked heels under $100, this pair denim cut-off shorts, a gold pendant necklace and these embellished sandals. Thank you, all, for sharing a great summer with me, and I look forward to lots of exciting things to come this fall!

I hate to say it, but cooler days in the city have felt AMAZING lately. The dog days of summer have hit and I'm craving the beginning the fall. (Anyone else?) Until then: a sporadic crisp morning will do! Earlier last week, I wore this lightweight cardigan near one of the more iconic spots in Chicago, overlooking the river at the Wrigley Building. The view always catches my breath, no matter how many times I've seen it. Soon enough, the colors along the river will changing... Are you looking forward to the new season?
