Striped Sweatshirt

Sweatshirt and Jeans (similar) - J.Crew / Sandals - Target / Sunglasses - Amazon / Bag - Clare V

I don't know if it's the cooler than average temperatures in Chicago or being home with a baby all day (hint: it's that), but lately I have been LIVING for a good sweatshirt. The sweatshirt part of my closet is exploding. Seriously, someone send help. It's almost as bad as the shoes.

Let's be real though, nothing will ever be as bad as the shoes ;)

I had my eye on this sweatshirt for weeks hoping it would go on sale (and crying silent, internal tears when it went out of stock in pink) and when it finally did go on sale you know I immediately snapped it up. I wore it here with jeans (see: Chicago's current weather forecast) but I've been mainly wearing it with dark or white denim shorts. Long sleeves and shorts always feels unexpected and fresh, and keeps you warm(ish) and cool(ish) when the weather is unpredictable. As far as sizing goes, you want to go up at least one size. I went up one size and could have still gone up another for a good, oversized fit.

If you've been following me on Instagram lately (omg I just typed "fallowing" I think I need to go back to work!) then you know that I've been spending a lot of my maternity leave days going for long walks through Chicago. On this particular day Jeff had to run some errands in Lincoln Park, so Mia and I decided to tag along and take a Lincoln Park walk instead of a Lincoln Square walk. Somehow (somehow!) we ended up at Sweet Mandy B's when Jeff finally caught up with us so we got a cookie and a cupcake out of the deal ;) We then wandered into Floriole to grab a bite for lunch. I'm still never sure whether Mia will behave herself at a restaurant or will scream, so we ordered some sandwiches to go. Mia decided it was the perfect time for a stroller nap though, so we ended up enjoying sandwiches and some rose hibiscus lemonades (which sound pretentious but were so good) out on their patio. The perfect little afternoon!
