LIFE LATELY // JUNE

I decided to make these Life Lately posts a monthly thing and give you guys a bit of a glimpse into my life so you can see what I’ve been up to this past month. There has been lots of swinging {Elle’s new favorite activity!}, rooftopping, grilling, and chilling.

Make sure to follow along on Instagram and Insta Stories for more photos and fun.

Also, I hope everyone has a great 4th of July weekend and if you need some last minute recipes or grilling tips, make sure to check out this post {grilling recipes}, this post {summer salad recipes}, and this post {dessert recipes}, for ideas.

So since June is coming to an end, here we go…

Elle’s newest obsession is swinging and she honestly could spend hours on this thing and plans to all summer long.

One of the many pretty sunsets and cotton candy cloud skies we have had this summer.

Checking out the Murakami exhibit at the MCA. Loved it and if you live in Chicago then it is free on Tuesdays so make sure to check it out!

Elle all dressed up for Father’s Day dinner. Isn’t she the cutest?!

Hanging on the rooftop at the J.Parker with my friend Jamie. It was my first time there and we had so much fun! Loved all the summer drinks and snacks.

This jumperoo is one of Elle’s favorite toys! I will be sharing her 7 month favorites soon. Can you believe she is about to be 7 months old?! She is getting so big :-(.

My favorite summer handbag is on MAJOR SALE! Shop it here.

After dinner swinging with dad.

Bloggers gonna blog! An amazing colorful wall at the MCA. Full post coming soon. In the meantime, shop this dress here.

Trying to teach Elle all about selfies 😉

The view from the rooftop at the Streeterville Social at the Loews Hotel. Such a fun place for cocktails or an early dinner.

Peggy and I rooftopping, which is one of my favorite summertime activities!

Elle enjoying a day at the pool! Isn’t that strawberry hat the cutest!?

Some of the food from the summer menu at the Streeterville Social. That avocado toast was kind of amazing guys.

I went to a super fun Mommy + Me Strength class at Studio Three. They have them every Tuesday and Thursday at 11AM. 

This white dress that I’ve been wearing ALL SUMMER LONG is on sale here. See the full post here.

Elle can finally sit up all her own. Go girl go!

Visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo with friends!

The perfect striped top for summer! See the full post here.

Chillin’ and grillin’.

Another one of my favorite summer dresses on major sale here. Also comes in a top version here. Full post coming soon!

This is how Elle likes to roll in her UPPAbaby Vista stroller.

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend guys and peace out!
