We had a gorgeous day in Chicago last Sunday. Seems like so long ago now that every day since then has been cold, rainy, and dreary. I pulled out these striped shorts I got last summer from JCrew. They are probably one of my favorite summer pieces! Stripes and polka dots are my go-to prints as I’m always drawn to them when I’m shopping. I love that unique patterns and prints are acceptable on shorts, because I am getting sick of wearing plain old jeans. Dan got me this hat from H&M a few birthdays ago and it is one of my favorites. I need to wear hats more often. Speaking of birthdays… today is my actually my birthday! I’m turning 28 on the 28th so it is in fact my golden birthday. Dan and I took off work today and tomorrow so we have a super long weekend together! Today we are going out around Logan Square on Milwaukee Avenue we are going to enjoy a few cocktails and then have lunch at Longman & Eagle. It will be our first time there! At night we might participate in our neighborhood’s annual Wine Stroll. Which apparently is when different shops will serve you wine and have special offers and discounts. It’s just too bad the weather is supposed to be cold and rainy. I’m thinking of trying to list out 30 things to do before 30. Hopefully 2 years will be sufficient time to accomplish some goals. Any recommendations? Have a lovely weekend!
