Not only because they are amazing and the city comes alive but because we suffer through 9 months of cold weather and every hot day is completely worth it. For those of you who haven’t visited Chicago before, it sits on Lake Michigan and also has the Chicago River which runs directly through the center of downtown. It’s definitely the best place to get the ultimate Chicago experience – of our architecture, restaurants, shopping and it is central to Lakeshore Drive, Millennium Park, Grant Park, etc. If you have the chance to visit I highly recommend taking an architecture tour, it’s one of my favorite things to do in the summer and the best way to see/learn about our city. *They even have some boats with boozy brunches for double the fun!

Since I’m fitting into very few items these days, I’ve been wearing mostly neutrals or monochromatic styles to keep my look simple and feel somewhat effortless {that is tough at 33 weeks pregnant} on days when I am unable to work from home in my pajamas. #truelife This dress is an older style from Aritzia but is very similar to this style and I’ve found a few similar options here, here, here, here, here and here! I love that this beige color can carry into fall – it would look so cute with these booties and this fringe duster sweater.
