On things that define my summer...part 1

In keeping with the "I refuse to acknowledge the coming of fall" I stole this from Christy at Avoiding Atrophy!


1. Beachtime
 Even though it took awhile for the weather to start cooperating once it did I hit the beach running and didn't look back. I basically made it to the beach 2-3 times a week for over a month even if it was just for a couple hours to relax & read or with friends to hang out for the day. 


this is a terrible picture of me but hey..whatever! 


2. Street Fests! 
I hit them hard this summer and I am not done yet! I am all about trying new foods, hanging out and having drinks while listening to some great cover bands. There is literally a festival every single weekend during the summer months in Chicago. The options are fantastic! 



 
This dress/sweater combo is my go to for festivals because its breezey and lightweight...

this is also why I can never do an outfit post because I stick to the same 5 outfits. 


Ok I think you get the point...lots of street fests....

3. Adventure
I did my very best to do a good amount of getting out of the house and off the beach this summer 

Hiking! 
 
Amusement Parks- Six Flags!

Being a Tourist!
attempting to golf...
You get the point right?? 

4. Family Time
This is always most important to me because when it comes down to it they are the best people I know! 







This post is super long...maybe I will stop at 4 for now!

Street festivals are so much fun!!! I love going to them here in NJ. Now I'm excited for all the fall festivals taking place in farms.
