A day at the Lake...

It's been down right sweltering in the Midwest. Usually we spend June complaining about the cold weather and rain to find the mid to end of July crazy hot. This year, we just skipped to the crazy hot, and I've been hiding in the AC most days which is why there has been a lack of outfit updates. I swear I've had great outfits, it's just too hot outside to take the pictures!
 I was working the boutique this weekend and my dad and I ventured out into the 100 degree heat to get some pictures by the beautiful Lake Geneva. For anyone who knows the area, it's a hot spot tourist destination for Chicago residents along with people from all over the world.

I've been wearing my fedoras almost every day in this heat, and you would be amazed how great they pair with anything. Plus they keep the sun out :) I paired mine with my amazing backless dress with a bandeau strapless bra, which was super cool and comfortable. 

I wore mine boating on Lake Michigan in Chicago the day before with my swim suit. Then with my jean skirt on the 4th. It's almost becoming my staple this summer and I love it! 

The heat is suppose to break by Sunday so hopefully I will be back to my posting self after a nice long run in Chicago {10 miles! Yikes! The half is only 2 weeks away!},

Stay cool everyone!
