Sweater Weather...

... in JUNE??!?!?

Sweater  (currently 25% off!) - J. Crew / Shorts - J. Crew Factory / Bag (similar) - Ann Taylor / Earrings (similar, I also love these tasseled hot pink earrings!) - Charming Charlie / Sandals (similar, I also love this pair!)- Sole Society

Yep, this is real. I had to pull out a sweater thanks to some chilly weather we had here in the Chi. I don't know what it is about wearing a sweater with shorts, but it feels so fresh. Probably because most people would rather wear pants with a tee than shorts with long sleeves. 

This particular sweater is the best. I know I've waxed poetic about it before, but it really is the perfect sweater for summer. It's lightweight and breezy but still warm, so it always feels like the right layer. It also has the perfect drape. I'm normally not so into oversized things on me because they can emphasize how top-heavy I am, but in this particular case the oversized factor is somehow super flattering. Oh, and the blue marled knit is so so so cute, which doesn't hurt. 

I wore this for dinner at our friends' place in Wicker Park over the weekend, which is such a cute neighborhood but I rarely get the chance to explore it. I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but Jeff is perpetually early (he was half an hour early for our first date!) and if I don't try to reign in his earliness we get places way before we're expected. Well, we somehow managed to get there forty-five minutes earlier than we were supposed to, so there was lots of time for wandering. I guess that's the bright side to arriving early! 

There are some seriously gorgeous tree-lined streets in Wicker Park, and the houses on this block were huge. I know there are some real masterpieces in Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast, but I didn't realize these old beauties existed in Wicker Park too! After wandering around and snapping some photos, we managed to make our way over to The Tankard for a quick drink before dinner. It was fun being so spontaneous, usually Jeff and I really plan out everything we do. It actually inspired us, and I think we're going to try wandering around a new neighborhood this coming weekend too! Hopefully not wearing a sweater this time ;)
