Summer is Upon Us!
Compensation was provided by Sears via Mode Media.
In Chicago spring usually feels like someone forgot to shut the freezer door and you are forced to stand right in front of it. At least you aren’t inside it anymore and that’s a huge relief. Now summer is upon us. What Chicagoans wait all year for – the humidity and street festivals and drinking on patios – all the glory that is summertime Chi.
Style really gets turned up a notch as well, but in a laid back sense. Floppy hats and vintage tees tend to replace stilettos and faux fur coats. Outfits that can easily transition from day to night – as I, at least, tend to like lunches that amid warm air and good conversation extend into late afternoon drinks which then extend into God knows what.
Yesterday, I hit the park with a friend, grabbed some tacos after and then cabbed it downtown to meet some girlfriends for a drink. This outfit served me well the whole time – no need to change mid day.
I recently discovered Metaphor – a Sears brand – and they have got some really cute and affordable summer things in stock now. They make my sweater I am wearing in these photos. You can check the line out here at Sears.com
