Backyard Illinois Shenanigans

How is it Wednesday already? Our summer Illinois trip has flown by. I've managed to eat at two restaurants featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives in the past two days. I've also had ice cream three times during this trip already. All the delicious food has been great, but I'm kind of ready to have vegetables back in my diet again. There's only so many days I can eat fried things.

Here's a few pictures we took in our grandparents' back yard. We were entertaining ourselves. I'll just include some nice outfit-picture ones though! Please excuse the wind-blown hair. We were jumping around taking jumpy pictures so it got kind of messy.

dress: forever 21
cardigan: ann taylor - thrifted
shoes: bongo - kmart
belt: thrifted
pin: vintage from Grandma








And...here's a jumpy picture! 

We're going downtown to Chicago tomorrow to meet up with some of my mom's extended family. It should be filled with good times. I can't believe this trip is almost over though. I'll be starting grad school soon enough... Where has summer gone?

Happy Wednesday!

This is definitely one of my favourite dresses of yours. It's crazy how fast the holidays have gone. I can't believe I am going back to class so soon too.

The best part about vacation is eating non-stop. I prefer to call them food-cations. Chicago is a lovely lovely place.

This dress is so vibrant and beautiful!
