Gingham Dress at Belmont Harbor

One of the best things about summertime in Chicago is the lakefront! There are multiple harbors, beaches, and parks along the lake, and miles and miles of lakefront paths to walk, run, or bike on. A few years ago, my friends and I chartered a sailboat (and captain! ha) for 4th of July weekend and it was easily one of my best memories out on Lake Michigan. The city skyline views from the lake are incredible!

You can easily access Belmont Harbor without being a boat owner, you just can’t go out onto the docks. (I would highly recommend chartering a boat for a day if you haven’t done it in the past!) When Melissa and I were here, it was a sunny day so the water looked extra blue and you can faintly see the Hancock building and some of the skyline in the background! Picture perfect.

I’ve been wearing this gingham dress on repeat lately and it’s currently on sale for FIFTEEN DOLLARS, so I’d snatch it up quickly if you want it! It’s machine washable so it makes for easy care, too.

I’ve talked a lot about my love for scarves this spring (remember this post and this post?), but one of my favorite ways to jazz up an outfit is to tie a scarf onto your handbag. Instantly chic and a fun way to add a pop of print or color to your outfit.

    I can’t believe this dress is only $15. May have to go for it. What I love about it is that it would like just as cute with white Keds, nude strap sandals, cognac flat sandals, or with the navy wedges you paired it with!

    I love this blue dress and the wedge sandals. Perfect for late spring through early fall. I like the bag too.

    I was so close to purchasing this dress but had to retain myself because I bought a few too many dresses from old navy. I love this look and the colors!

    Love all your blues and whites here! The city skyline and the waterfront is such a gorgeous backdrop too. You seem to be much happier now in Chicago.
