beach cover up and shades, vintage from Suburban Secrets / sandals, GAP outlet (old) / bikini, AA

While there are definitely "cooler" neighborhoods in Chicago than ours (by "cool" I mean younger, hipper, trendier, with about 100 less themed antique stores and 100 more sushi restaurants), I could never leave Edgewater/Andersonville and its proximity to the best beaches. I run quite a bit, and I love that I can log my miles next to Lake Michigan, or take a quick swim whenever I'm in the mood. Yesterday Mike and I went to Hollywood beach, also known as Gay Beach. The water is finally warm enough to swim in, and the views are as gorgeous as it gets. By views I mean all the ripped and tan gay men. The lake is just okay. 


  1. :) I miss the beach!! I wouldn't move either. How nice is that to have such a wonderful location so close to you?! LOVE that coverup. You are always looking chic!

  2. I love that suit and that's my favorite beach (I don't think I've gone to other ones since I get hit with instant anxiety as the sight of the busy ones south of you.) That cover up is beautiful too, I need to find one! See you next weekend hopefully!
