How is it already almost July!? I feel like summer hasn’t really even started yet, and that’s probably because it’s been so cold here in Chicago. Even though the weather hasn’t been great, we’ve still been having fun.

This past month we tried a few new restaurants, celebrated Father’s Day and my dad’s 70th birthday, and Elle started camp! I thought she would be sad to leave me, but is having so much fun!



Hopefully you follow me on Instagram Stories, but if not, take a look at what we’ve been up to below:

Starting with some tacos from The Gringo. They have the cutest outdoor patio too that’s super kid friendly. Earlier this week I wrote a whole post on my favorite kid friendly patios in Chicago. Read it here.



Another favorite spot of ours is Urban Belly in Wicker park. They also have a great patio and the cutest mural where we took these photos.



I have a thing for cute sneakers and recently got these! I’m OBSESSED and they’re currently on MAJOR SALE. Shop them here.



My cute baby boo. Aren’t here pajamas fun?! Shop them here.



Over the top milkshakes from Jojo’s Milk Bar. Another cute place for kids!



Elle got some great new shoes from Kamik. You can shop her sneakers here and her sandals here. The sandals are waterproof and great for playing in the water. We have her use these at camp!.



This month I shared my 5 favorite trends for summer. Shop my top on MAJOR SALE here and read my post here.
