On My Radar.

Happy Friday from Chicago! I flew back to my beloved Windy City on a redeye last night (oooof) to soak up some Summertime Chi and spend a weekend with some of my best friends. I haven’t been back since the holidays and it’s so great to be back downtown – I plan on spending the next few days exploring some new spots that have opened in the city since we moved while also hitting up a few of my all-time favorites. Anyone have any suggestions for me?!

In case you’re planning on soaking up some sun poolside or lounging in bed, I wanted to share a few things that have been on my radar lately:
