While technically summer begins in late June, This past weekend we celebrated Memorial Day, which kicks off summer (unofficially).
Memorial day is not just about starting summer off on a good note, but also about remembering those who lost their lives while serving in the military.
We decided to get some cool shots of Chicago by visiting Navy Pier, which is located in downtown Chicago. Over 100 years old, Navy Pier is a beloved tourist spot to Chicago. They recently revamped the pier, and boy was it packed! We grabbed a margarita and headed to the water to shoot.
I chose this outfit from the Loft because it was easy, breezy and comfortable. My colors this summer are definitely navy and red and felt like the best thing to wear for this holiday weekend. It made maneuvering around tourists that much easier.
On our way back, we stopped by Molly’s Cupcakes for a yummy dessert. I chose the Key Lime Pie cupcake and Andy chose the Chocolate Raspberry. We ate them so fast, we forgot to document in a picture!
After, we enjoyed an evening stroll on the beach. We finished the weekend off at a Memorial Day party at a friend’s. Needless to say, it was a relaxing and fun-filled weekend. Nothing makes me happier than when it gets warm and the sun comes out!
