Well the calendar may say that it’s technically fall but apparently Chicago didn’t get the memo…
This weekend Chicago saw some of the best summer weather of the year and in late September mind you! It was like Mother Nature was giving us one last hoorah to enjoy in the city. I for one, am not complaining, as it’s given me a few more days to enjoy patio season and my summer wardrobe before it goes away for the season.
My weekend was jam packed with a much needed trip to the hair salon, followed by a meet and greet with Sara Happ, a fall inspired photoshoot (leather jackets + 90 degree weather is not a great combo) and ending with a delicious sushi dinner with my favorite gals on the planet and a celebration of my friend’s 30th birthday party in the West Loop.
With temperatures high, I pulled out this boho bell sleeve cotton top that I picked up at H&M right before my trip to France & Spain. The gauzy material make it ideal for days that are extra humid and hot, but still stylish enough to be appropriate no matter what. For a top that was only $30, the embroidery detail is on point!
Paired with a simple black shirt (a clear favorite of mine) and a flashy pair of glitter sneakers, I was armed and ready to take advantage of the beautiful street art, outdoor patios, and beach time that I missed out on earlier this year.
While I’m sad to see temperatures take a dip, I am looking forward to slowing things down a bit and enjoying some cozy nights home with a good book. What are you guys looking forward to this season?
