Can you believe it's June already? Time is literally SOARING by and just like that we'll be waving goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015. But before you break out the campaign, how about me make the most of the now and enjoy the summer that is before us? I am jazzed that BC Footwear asked me to be the Chicago rep for the #BCSummerRoadtrip. They sent me these ADORABLE (vegan!) off the cuff flatforms that made me feel like a total betty somewhere between rockabilly and Rihanna. Either way I'm dancing to Rude Boy. To be honest I think I channeled both ideals with the black and white crop top and overalls. I wanted to be playful but still blarghful. That's a word now. Deal with it.
Oh and good news! With BC I am giving away 6 pairs of shoes to one lucky reader. Just a way of saying thanks for being so awesome and following this blog all these years. Plus 6 is my favorite number so it can't get much better than that!
But before we get to giveaways I wanted to chit chat about some favorite places in Chicago. For those of us in the Midwest, sometimes Cali can be too far and NYC can be too $$ why no hop in your cars and see the city that is really second to none! Versus getting stuck on the mag mile, try these things instead:
GO: Wicker Park.
If you're a cool kid you might have heard this neighborhood mentioned to you. but it is merely a 15 min train ride from the loop! There's lots to shop, lots to eat, plenty of dusen dusen to make any girl smile! Some people call it Brooklyn jr, I like to refer to it as the neighborhood High Fidelity took place.
EAT: Tacos. Yes TACOS
If you like the idea of eating outside while sharing a beer late into the wee hours of the morning then Big Star is your place. If you love vintage, are a foodie, and drinking margaritas with a paper straw is your jam then head over to Antique Taco. Just don't forget to top it off with a doughnut at one of Wicker Park's many fried bread establishments (Glazed & Infused, Stan's Donuts)
Wicker Park is a tumblr girls dream. From Vintage, to zines, to tchotchke deers from 1963. You reblogged it we got. For cutest stationary and vintage ninja turtle patches head over to Rudy's Roundup. Want zines and foreign magazines? Shake your groove thang over to Quimby's. Looking for vintage? A stroll down Milwaukee Ave will have you stopping every couple of feet, there's literally shop after shop of vintage wonders!
