OOTD: Pineapple Time

Summer time means city time. Monday my best friend, my mom, and I took our yearly summer trip to the Chicago Shedd Aquarium. I love looking at all of the fish and sea animals at the Shedd. Personal favorite are the whales! The Shedd is a great place to go if you are traveling to Chicago for a vacation or if you are from the area and have never been. 

For a day of walking I like to dress comfortable but cute. By pairing a classic button down with your favorite jeans you can create a casual look that is still put together. This army green jacket is one of my go-to of the moment. Right now the weather is super odd for it being mid may. It hasn't gotten warmer then around 60 so a light jacket is a must-have. I picked up this classic green utility jacket from J Crew Factory and it is the best! They have this style at both the regular and outlet store. It's perfect for spring or fall and can be worn with practically anything. 

Pineapples are my new obsession. This white button down with embroidered pineapples caught my eye recently and I had to pick it up. So cute! Adding small details like fruit or a print to any outfit is a fun way to spice things up. 

Walking around all day also calls for comfortable shoes. Recently I've been loving these Sperry espadrilles. But, I also love Keds or comfy sneakers for a day of walking around in the city. 

*Excuse my Shedd Aquarium wristband*
To accessorize this look I added a cute anchor KJP bow bracelet to add a nautical touch. I also added some dainty Kendra Scott bendable bracelets I picked up at Von Maur last week. They were on sale for $11-$15! What a steal! If you have a Von Maur nearby be sure to check out their jewelry sale section for some good deals.
