chicago was infiltrated by the suarez sisters (natalie and dylana, natch) last weekend and i made damn sure to be a part of the adventure when time permitted. friday night i met up with them at their downtown hotel where we caught up on lost time and i introduced them to a chicago specialty and my personal favorite beer, 312. snacks at an irish pub followed by dancing the night away at rad and refined's summer launch rooftop party completed day one. after the party, we spent a good hour trying to catch a cab in no man's land, which lead to multiple photo ops on medians and in front of HARPO studios, all while blasting "cat daddy" on natalie's phone. they loved my city as much as i do. 

 my outfit: something about sun kissed shoulders and showing them off makes me giddy inside, so this cropped turtleneck is in heavy rotation at the moment, with everything from modest midi skirts to sexy denim cutoffs. french braids are making a comeback as my signature summer go-to, and my friend makes the best ones - this man will be famous as a stylist, i bet my left pinky toe on it. 

hope you enjoyed this post :)
