I ♥ Chicago

Chicago is my town. I love everything about it. Even when we're having a crazy Winter with tons of snow. I can bare the frigid temps from time to time. Why? How? Because when the weather is gorgeous, this city's awesomeness comes through. You just feel motivated to do everything. When I wake up to a sunny warm apartment, I just feel an extra pep in my step! Just a simple walk around the neighborhood or outdoor seating at a restaurant can really brighten your day. I know it's the vitamin D, we need it! Well, I need it!
 Kat and I took a stroll down Michigan Ave today and stopped at the Lake. It was so clear and gorgeous. All I kept thinking was how much I can't wait for the vintage Spring/Summer season. Pop Ups and Flea Markets!! And of course, I thought about really stepping up my workout from 3-4 days a week to 6 days. Gotta get ready for those crop tops and swimsuits! My gams have been neglected for far too long;)

I've been so happy this week due to the sunshine and warm weather! I actually got tan today while sitting on the patio at Star Lounge.

Super cute outfit, I especially like all your wood accessories and of course the purse from the Elgin show.

What a great outfit, and such a lovely top! I feel the same way about Grand Rapids as you do about Chicago, I think :) It's great to love where you are (and even better when the weather makes it easy!)
