One of the best things about summertime in Chicago is the lakefront! There are multiple harbors, beaches, and parks along the lake, and miles and miles of lakefront paths to walk, run, or bike on. A few years ago, my friends and I chartered a sailboat (and captain! ha) for 4th of July weekend and it was easily one of my best memories out on Lake Michigan. The city skyline views from the lake are incredible!
You can easily access Belmont Harbor without being a boat owner, you just can’t go out onto the docks. (I would highly recommend chartering a boat for a day if you haven’t done it in the past!) When Melissa and I were here, it was a sunny day so the water looked extra blue and you can faintly see the Hancock building and some of the skyline in the background! Picture perfect.
I’ve talked a lot about my love for scarves this spring (remember this post and this post?), but one of my favorite ways to jazz up an outfit is to tie a scarf onto your handbag. Instantly chic and a fun way to add a pop of print or color to your outfit.
