Summer Fun

Growing up in LA, I was used to warm weather throughout the year. But there’s something about surviving winter in Chicago. About getting to March and April, contemplating moving away because you just can’t take it, and then once that first warm day hits, you fall in love with the city again. You can’t help but appreciate every warm day and every moment that summer brings.

We’re one week into summer and I’ve already been to a movie in the park, dined on few patios, a beach day, boat day, and lots of long walks with Buddy. Haven’t been poolside and have yet to see fireworks, but it’s only just begun. I love summer in Chicago. It’s why we live here. 

Please don’t forget to wear sunscreen and always apply a moisturizer with SPF.
And my favorite new go-to product, Trish McEvoy beauty balm with SPF 35.

Happy summer and cheers to a short work week!

    Look at those little puppy faces! I'm in love with tiny french bull dogs! Someday I hope to rescue my own!

    I agree! Summer in Chicago is seriously the best! I visited for a few weeks last August and I just loved it. Running along the Lakefront Trail, enjoying lunch breaks in outdoors in the sun, spending your evenings with a cocktail in hand on a rooftop terrace… what's not to love. šŸ™‚

    Love these wonderful photos… everything I love about Summer in one post! It's hot and sticky here in FL 70% of the time so I'm excited for crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice everything this fall.

    Love your skincare tips! The more often we apply sunscreen, the less of a chance we'll develop skin cancer (and pre-skin cancer) as 50-year-olds! I'm all about getting a few minutes a day of some good Vitamin D, but I cringe when I see girls burning themselves on the beach every day of summer! Rock the skin you're in, pale or not!! šŸ˜‰
