A Weekend Back in Chicago.

Last weekend I headed back to Chicago to soak up some summertime Chi and see my best girlfriends and man, it was good to be back! It's still hard to believe we've been gone a year and a half - it seems like a million new things have popped up all over the city since we've been gone. As much as I always love visiting my old favorite spots while I'm in town it was really fun to check out some of the city's new hot spots. A peek into my weekend back in Chicago:…

around chicago // south loop.

The South Loop is a neighborhood that's near and dear to my heart after calling Printer's Row home for over two years and there's honestly no one better to represent the 'hood than Molly Page, friend and Instagrammer extraordinaire. Molly is actually the one who sold me on the neighborhood initially when we first met while I was touring my first Chicago apartment - she's an architecture buff and is just full of knowledge about the city and its history. So after traveling to Old Town, Lincoln Park, River North, Lakeview, Streeterville and Wicker Park, we're…
