floral tote bag + Chicago recap

May 6, 2018


Hey guys! How was your weekend?! I’m still recovering from an action-packed weekend in Chicago. We lumped Cinco de Mayo, the Derby and a wedding into a quick 36 hour trip sans kiddos. We met up with my husband’s friends from business school and their wives and it was such a blast getting to know this fun crew better. Not to mention Chicago was nothing shy of perfect this weekend. The first warm and sunny weekend the city has seen all year made the entire city abuzz. The tulips (my favorite flower!) were in full bloom and we bopped around snapping photos on every turn like good tourist or phone-obsessed culture should.

I haven’t been to Chicago in 5 years and quickly realized how awesome this town is for kids. I can’t wait to bring our crew back because there is SO much for kiddos to do in this town; lakeside playgrounds, water sports, putt-putt, rock walls, rides on Navy Pier, the list goes on. Y’all have got to add summer in Chi-town to your travel to-do list!

Today’s outfit is perfect for a little tourist action. My bag is super lightweight, but holds enough to be a great travel bag or diaper bag. I carry a black version non-stop but had fun changing things up with a floral print for spring/summer.

This easy striped tee is a fun, summery change-up from my typical white v-neck. I’ve received so many compliments on this easy top, especially the cute heart shaped pocket! I’d probably sub in sneakers for slide sandals if the day entails more than 10,000 steps like ours did during our tourist time in Chi-town.

Have a great week guys!
