What happens when you finally go for the all-white outfit you’ve been waiting for against a backdrop of a hot dog stand that happens to be red, white and blue? I like to call it…accidentally patriotic.
You would think that because I’m a fashion blogger, I love shopping and I buy new stuff all the time, right? Well it’s partially true (sorry I’m such a cliché) but there’s certain wardrobe necessities that I never think to buy or upgrade. A few items that fall in that category would include socks, pajamas and today’s topic — swimwear…or anything that involves a beach or pool, really.
There’s many 90s references happening in fashion right now that we just can’t help feel nostalgic about. This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about it (and as long as overalls and crop tops are still happening, it won’t be the last) so in the words of a quintessential 90s band…
So why don’t you slide…
INTO SOME SLIDE SANDALS!
It seems we can’t go a day in Chicago without mentioning something about the weather. We can talk about how it snowed this weekend (#bummer) and sometimes we get those amazing 50 degree days (for those West Coasters, 50 degrees is actually warm for us) and suddenly you see a funny mix of puffer coats and shorts that you’ll only find here in the Windy City.
But anyway…my least favorite part about our everlasting Winter is that I can only wear the same few pairs of shoes — snow boots, rain boots, flat boots (that could really use a cleaning right about now) and my sacrificial pair (explained here). Although there’s snow on the ground (once again) I’m staying optimistic here and hoping I can add some new shoes into the rotation pretty soon.
