There are several harbors in Chicago, which are all along the lakefront. They're there for people with boats & yachts. I'm not fancy enough to own one, but I do like going to the harbor. Some of the best views, sunsets, and cheap bites are right on the harbor! A couple weeks ago, Tre and I decided to enjoy the longer days (my favorite thing about Summer!) and head to Belmont Harbor.  It was fun & relaxing.

Gingham is one of the biggest trends I'm into this season. Anything with gingham, I go crazy over! I decided to switch up the look of this cropped gingham top. I really like the relaxed look of a tie-knot shirt, so I decided to convert this one into one (I'll show what the original shirt looks like at a later post!). Now it gives it a summer vibe. Also, denim skirts are making such as big comeback. Nothing screams more summer & sunsets than gingham and denim! I scored this skirt for only $35. I love how it has a pencil skirt style, but still feels casual. I think next time, I would love to dress up this skirt!
