Hello yellow! When is the last time you went on a picnic in a park? Or even at the beach? It’s not often that Matt and I make time for picnics. And as I talked about on Saturday, there aren’t a whole love of patches of grass living in a big city. Sure, LA was a big city but there were definitely more parks in our neighborhood. I remember Matt and I doing a date night in one of our local spots once during the summer. It was so fun to switch things up a bit. Saying pass to our usual dinner spots and getting outside was refreshing!

Sooo, there aren’t many gardens in downtown Chicago. However, there are a lot of patios! At some point during the year, the city decides that it’s time to bring the patios out. Overnight, you see outdoor seating and flower filled planters pop up. Literally, overnight. Coming from Southern California, this is something that makes sense in hindsight but was a little weird for me the first day I saw all these lounge areas coming out of nowhere. These are like big cities’ versions of gardens. So, I broke out this gorgeous off the shoulder maxi dress!
