Nothing says summer like a pink lace peplum top, white jeans, a mini straw tote, pom-pom sandals, and an iced coffee, am I right? A few friends and I were chatting this past weekend about how we can’t believe we’re almost halfway through July. In Chicago, we spent all winter (and spring, too!) counting down until summer arrives and all of a sudden, we’re almost halfway through. It’s kind of depressing, but more so a reminder to slow down and enjoy these long, sunshine-filled days while they’re here!
I’ve been making my coffee at home regularly for the last two years, pretty much since I moved to Chicago. And as much as I love my iced almond milk lattes, bulletproof coffees, matcha lattes, and the like, nothing beats a cute coffee shop with a killer iced latte! At least one day a week, I try to get a change of scenery and work from a little cafe or coffee shop. It does wonders for my creativity, breaks up the week a bit, and is a little something to look forward to, too!
It’s so easy to stay close by my apartment, but getting out and exploring new-to-me neighborhoods is one of my favorite parts of living in a city. CC Ferns is in Humboldt Park in Chicago, which isn’t remotely near my apartment, but it’s an easy drive and good change of pace! (You may remember it from this post!)
