Lincoln Park // Views at the Zoo
Happy Wednesday :)! Just TWO more days until the weekend! So it’s been a couple of weeks since my last post — life has been a bit busy the past few weeks for the boo and I, and the boo has been traveling a lot on the weekends so I lost my photographer for a bit there!!!
The weather this past weekend was AMAZING, so I obviously had to take advantage of it and we headed to the Lincoln Park zoo (it’s FREE!) for a stroll and then to one of my favorite summer rooftop bars, The J Parker, for a few cocktails. Just as we were leaving the zoo, we walked past suited up guests, then the wedding party, and then this gorgeous bride. LP zoo has a beautiful gazebo area where many have their summer weddings at! I was all smiles after that. I love randomly running into weddings in Chicago…it actually happens quite frequently believe or not!
Anyway, a bit about my outfit — I’m still on the off the shoulder top obsession and recently bought the black Zara top at their amazing sale a couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t wait to wear it!! My shoes, the Denver caged sandal by Sam Edelman, were unfortunately better looking than fitting. After the zoo stroll and the stroll around LP, we ended up having to go to CVS in which I proceeded to literally use half a box of band-aids on my poor feet :(. So disappointing!!! They look so cute though, so that is really unfortunate. I’ll be better prepared next time with the band-aids. The things we do for beauty ;)!!! Links below to my outfit!
