Isn’t this daisy necklace sooo summer?! My ‘lil sis sure knows my style 🙂 She got me this necklace in Spain, so every time I wear it I pretend I’m on vacation there. I know it’s a bit silly, but you have to have fun with fashion and have an imagination! Summer style to me, is effortless like this black shift dress and the most comfy espadrilles. Summer is just the greatest.
To celebrate how great summer is, there are some fun events coming up in the city this week:

Meet Mireya, or Mire. Mire is one of my most lively people I know and long time friend. She is so energetic and smiley all the time. Her fun personality shines through her personal style and her creative nail art. Mire is often referred to as Beyoncé because let’s face it – they could be clones of each other! I also like to refer to Mireya as my personal Chicago insider because she knows all the hotspots and local secrets. Read more about this fashionista below.
