Summer is always a crazy time of year. Before it even starts our calendar is already completely booked up! With our big move, numerous weddings, family reunions and other festivities on the horizon, I really want to make sure we still have time to do everything on our bucket list. Before we left the city we spent one sunny afternoon grabbing a cookie and some caffeine at the new Colectivo Coffee (have you been? It’s such a fun spot!) followed by some park time with Charlie. I love days like this that feel mundane but you come home feeling like it was the best day ever. My goal this summer is to make sure that most of our days feel like the best day ever.

A couple weeks ago I wore this dress on my instagram/insta-stories and you guys LOVED it. It is the dreamiest Rebecca Taylor midi dress that I’ve been living in throughout my first/second trimester. Midi dresses were made for pregnant women (I love when I don’t have to worry about the length) and this one has been on serious rotation as of late. I’m excited to share that HauteLook is having a huge Rebecca Taylor limited-time shopping event today and this dress is included!

When I spotted these ILY Couture tees I knew I had to get them for Charlie and myself. We don’t match very often but the 4th of July seemed like an appropriate holiday. ILY’s entire 4th of July shop is so cute – I also snagged this tank and this hoodie, just because. Make sure you order quickly to get in time for the 4th! I also ordered this red jumpsuit from Anthro to wear for the fireworks that night 🙂

On our last night officially living in the city, my parents watched Charlie and Dave and I went to dinner at one of our favorites spots – Gemini. We lived across the street from Gemini for 5 years so we were very much regulars and they just redid the entire space/menu and it is beautiful! I highly recommend you go!

I received so many compliments about this outfit and my dress and shoes are both on sale from Hampden Clothing! Are you familiar with Hampden? They are a highly recognized boutique based in Charleston, South Carolina and is owned by my sweet friend, Stacy. Her eye for fashion is impeccable. The store is like walking into the closet of your most fashionable friend and that is because Stacy fills it with the best of the best.

What’s on your summer bucket list? Anything fun? It feels good to write it all down, it makes me feel like I will actually accomplish everything I want to get done. Also, how cute is this dress (I’m wearing a size medium because of the bump!)? Everyone needs a stripe t-shirt dress for summer. This look is so simple but feels effortless and styled. I paired it with a straw hat and my favorite sandals. So perfectly summer!

Today is our last full day in Chicago and I am making sure that we stop at all of our favorite places before we officially move to the suburbs on Wednesday. I posted last night about how this move has all of a sudden brought on so many emotions for me (probably due in part to pregnancy hormones). It has been 9 years since I moved downtown with my best friends and I don’t want to believe all that has changed since then. Here are 20 things that I’ll miss about living in the city…
