WHERE I’M TRAVELING: I have/have had a few bachelorette parties this summer, the one coming up next is good old Chicago! We will be going to Hampton Social for a brunch which is a bachelorette party must in Chicago. We are also doing a boat day out on the river for a day!

GO-TO SUMMER WARDROBE STAPLE: This swimsuit! It’s one of my favorite budget friendly swimsuits, so comfortable and cute – I have it in 4 colors.
