I’m one of those people who dreads bathing suit shopping – Actually, I can’t imagine there are too many people who enjoy the process. So, while at a rooftop pool party (they are a big deal in Chicago) a few weeks ago, a friend had on THE cutest one shoulder one piece suit. I had to find out where she bought it from… and to my surprise, she found it on Amazon! I hopped on Amazon the next day and began my hunt for a great suit. Guess what? I found so many that I’m loving & I just HAD to share with you. So, here ya go: (BTW they are under $24!)
One shoulder with ruffles (I have it in black, but there are tons of colors):
High neck with adjustable back (I have it in the palm print and red/white/blue stripes, but other prints are avail):
This is so not going to be a fancy post… so please excuse the 1990’s look of it. It’s Prime day, the site was down for too long and I wanted to show you my top picks for the sale. So… here they are in no particular order. Check my insta stories if you’re looking for why I chose them. Happy shopping!
You may have noticed, but summer in Chicago is kind of a big deal. I mean, we all suffer through the winter and then are rewarded for our efforts once summer hits. Summer is ALL about being on the water any chance you have. I have to say, I have done a pretty great job so far and it’s only early July. If you’re a Chicago resident or are planning a trip here, I highly recommend doing 1 if not all 3 of the below activities:
Number 1: Rent a Boat
I am so lucky to have found friends who are also all about this. If you follow me on IG, then you know I spent the 4th of July on a boat and it was the best decision ever. We used Boatsetter and couldn’t have a had a better experience. I highly recommend renting a boat (or finding someone who has one) because the best views of Chicago are from the lake. Hands down.
Number 2: Kayaking on the river
If you were to ask those closest to me, they would tell you that I am the opposite of an outdoorsy person. While I’m not about to make a complete 180 and go camping every weekend, I am trying to expand my outdoor activities and kayaking the river was the perfect intro. I chose the architectural tour and was not disappointed. The crew was fantastic, the views were amazing and I got a little arm workout in. We used Water Riders for our tour & I highly recommend them!
Number 3: Architectural Boat Tour
I’ve lost count how many times I’ve boarded the Wendella boats because each time I go on one of their tours, I learn a million new things. You can choose to cruise down the river or do the river & lake combo. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a gorgeous tour where you learn the history of Chicago and it’s buildings & have hundreds of amazing photo opps while sipping your cocktail of choice. It really doesn’t get any better.
