Wicker Park // Street Art

Hello sunshines! Hope you are all having a great 4th of July weekend :)! Wicker Park is one of my favorite areas–there are many AHMAZING restaurants + bars and cute little shops. We ate at Big Star (best tacos + margaritas), roamed around afterwards and found these cool walls of street art to take pictures at. Of course, ended the day with a 4th of July chocolate sprinkles donut from Stan’s Donuts (YUM). It’s been a chilly few days in Chicago so I opted for white jeans instead of a flowy dress or skirt. I don’t mind a cool summer though! Nice change from the 90 degree weather a couple of weeks ago. Links to my wardrobe below :)! Shirt: American Rag – Macy’s (sale!) // Pants: Flying Monkey // Purse: Louis Vuitton // Shoes: Kelly & Katie – DSW // Necklace: Baublebar // Sunnies – Kate Spade and Wander & Co. // Watch: Michael Kors // Lips: Tarte LipSurgence Lip Gloss (Blushing Bride)
