Every Wednesday and Saturday, Chicago’s Green City Market arrives in Lincoln Park and is conveniently right outside my doorstep. I love to wander the rows of artisans purveying local produce, cheese, meats, flowers and more. The colors and seasonal goods are a feast to the eyes and the senses. You can even pick up breakfast or lunch to enjoy in the park including made-to-order crepes, grilled cheese, smoothies and juices.
Even though it is technically summer here in Chicago, temperatures have been in the high 50’s. Normally this would really upset me, but today I was happy the cooler digits allowed me to wear my new ‘Presidio’ Military Jacket from the Cupcakes & Cashmere line by Emily Schuman. I’ve been reading Emily’s blog forever and was so excited to hear she launched her own line. Each piece is sophisticated yet simple just like her! Also on my wish list from the line – the Claremont Coat, Roxbury Jumpsuit and Cardiff Plaid Coat.
