The Dog Days

I feel like I really have to wonder here how we got to the second half of August. I really apologize for saying it, because could I be more cliché? But I really don't know how we got here. I think the summer has been flying by specifically because I'm nervous about having a toddler stuck in my house for a COVID Chicago winter. We've been soaking up as much sunshine and outdoor time as we can, and it's so nice to have a space on our roof for a kiddie pool and water table and sun loungers. We spent all of Saturday afternoon up there splashing around, but before that, Jeff and I got dressed up and went on a little day date! 

A date?! I know. I was so excited, it had been months and months. Jeff's brother and SIL came over to watch Mia for a couple of hours, and we got to have a kid-free brunch! I had a couple of mimosas (one of which had to be replaced after a wasp dive bombed it), and we got to eat fresh french fries, and no kid repeatedly threw things on the ground! We've been going to River Valley for the couple of meals we've eaten out because it seems like the safest option in our neighborhood. They have plexiglass up to block the patio from the sidewalk, the tables are really well spaced, they require mask-wearing except when you're actually eating, and they are using disposable silverware and plates. 

I wore my favorite tank of the summer (I have it in black too!) along with these cute pull-on shorts. This tank is so fun, the little ruffle makes me feel so cute every time I put it on. I'm so used to wearing less fitted tops that having a really fitted tank is a fun change, and it works really well with a pull-on short. A flowy top wouldn't work with these shorts, it would end up feeling sloppy. For these shorts, I'd suggest sizing down one size as they run a little big. If you're in the market for something cute to wear with shorts or skirts, it's currently on an amazing sale (price depends on the color).

Hope you have a good one!
