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:
- On Wednesday, July 13th, Big Shoulders Coffee (1105 W. Chicago Ave.) is celebrating their 4th anniversary. In honor of their anniversary, all coffee drinks at the Cafe will be $1 from 6am – 7pm!

Cutouts are one of my ultimate favorite styles. Summer definitely means shorter hemlines and exposed shoulders 😉 This dress can easily go from day to night with a quick switch of shoes and bag style. Click here to see how I wore this bag as a clutch. I’m still keeping accessories to a minimum because of the heat, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t cute – like my favorite vintage bangle!
I keep writing this, but summer really does make me smile! What makes you smile?!
