the zoo and what i wore

a casual summer outfit

Over the weekend I had a wonderful time at the Lincoln Park Zoo. The weather was perfect and all the animals were out and doing something adorable and interesting.

My casual summer adventure outfit is a cotton dress from H&M; shoes, bag, and sunglasses from Target; and chambray from … shoot I can’t remember.

After the zoo we walked to the lake to take a look at the skyline. It was a lovely day.

Also, it was super cool to be featured as the Chicago Tribune’s reader of the week! Check it out!

My dad was in town over the weekend and I had the best time. We saw A Night With Janis Joplin, went to the High Line, out to dinner at Paulie Gee’s, had lunch on the waterfront. And this is what I wore (to lunch, anyway).

I love having visitors now that my apartment is big enough to comfortably fit more than one person. I’m proud of my home and I like sharing it. And it’s a good excuse to go to some of my favorite restaurants. The weekend was so fun–my return to the workweek was a little lackluster by comparison. How about you guys?
