For as much as everyone else in Chicago complained about Spring being not hot and rainy, I loved it! Mostly because, well, that’s what spring is. 50’s and rainy. That’s the whole point. And now Chicago has exploded in a wash of green and flowers and warmth and sun and it’s absolutely perfect. And all that green makes the weeks on end of rain totally worth it.
Which means it’s time to start thinking about summer style! I generally follow the “the less clothing, the better” school of thought when it comes to beating the heat, especially in an unairconditioned apartment, but skirts tend to work just as well. If it can handle a breeze, it’s perfect!
I’m looking forward to seeing what trends actually take hold this summer. So far, I definitely see the off the shoulder look sticking around. I would definitely love to give maxi dresses another moment, too. We’ll see what the season brings!
Cheers to warm weather, drinks by the Lake, and another gorgeous summer in the greatest city on earth, Chicago.
