Summertime Saturday

I didn’t have to work this past Saturday so I made sure I was outside enjoying summertime in the Chi. Matt and I went to the Randolph Street Market for a few hours during the day. It was our first time going and it definitely won’t be the last! He was a trooper wandering around with me looking at vintage jewelry. I only bought one gold bangle for $1.50. I’m pretty sure that’s the only time I’ve spent under $2 on a shopping trip. (Patting myself on the back!)
It was HOT so we ended up (FINALLY!) seeing Harry Potter in the afternoon. IT WAS SO GOOD!! If you’re a HP fan, you definitely need to see it!
We went to Taco Joint (Halsted & Armitage) for dinner and a margarita. It’s was delicious. I recommend it! I tried three tacos: barbacoa, fajita, and rajas. All three were great! We also had a guacamole with crab meat and pineapple mixed in. Sounds strange, but it was awesome! Tank: Express (similar)
Shorts: Joe’s Jeans (similar)
Sandals: Sam Edelman
Fedora: BDG (similar)
Sunnies: Ray-Ban
Watch: MK (similar)

Here’s a touristy pic of the skyline from the Randolph Street Market…
