Back on the Boat

Over the weekend, I made my second trip “home” to Chicago since I moved to Manhattan.

Most of my time was spent maintaining a YOLO^ mindset either on the lake or at the bar with some of my best friends — and in this breezy DVF kaftan (that I thrifted). I more than welcomed the excuse to unplug for a bit and re-acquaint with my former city of six years.

To say it was a weekend for the record books is a biiit of an understatement, as I may or may not still be sporting a little holiday hangover.

^ Yep, I said Yolo.

Hope you enjoy these snaps from my trip — I’ll share more photos later this week (or you can check out a few in the meantime on Instagram). I hope you had a great Fourth, as well!
