I am in Boston for the weekend getting my yearly lobster roll and spending a summer weekend in the city. I always look forward to visiting the adorable bakery Tatte in town. If you haven’t been, add it to your list. I still have lots of catching up from traveling in Italy and editing photos for The Print Shop. The Lake Como Guide will be in your inboxes on Tuesday. I am putting the finishing touches on it now.
I had a week of checkups! Health checks are SO important and not talked about often enough. I had both my physical and gynecology appointment at Northwestern. This is also a friendly reminder to schedule your doctor visits and get checked regularly. I scheduled my first mammogram now that I am 40.

I thought I lost my sunglasses in Italy but they were buried in my bag and have been recovered. I panicked. If you love mine and want the same pair, I found them on sale here and will order a second pair. They are perfect for my small face and I always have had them with me until now.
I have been wearing the original cream with red letters on repeat since it arrived a few months ago. I couldn’t be happier to have two in the rotation. In fact, I think I have worn this every single weekend to the market in Chicago with Henri before it got too hot.
I broke out my black linen pants for an evening walk with Henri. These were perfect to throw on after a shower in the summer. I also own them in white. I ended up wearing them on the flight to Boston. The perfect travel pants. They are so comfortable too.
A NYC restaurant group is coming to Chicago and bringing 3 new restaurants including a classic French bistro which I feel we are in need of. I can’t wait to check it out once they open.

Cuyana just launched the phone bag and it is genius and sleek. I am not sure what took them so long. This is the most attractive phone bag I have seen. Perfect for going out at night and walking around Europe to keep everything safe and secure.
Madewell’s secret sale continues this week. The discount is too good to pass up if you have it in your budget. Plus, they have a good amount of jeans that are $50 off which makes some of them under $50. Back to school or fall shopping at a great price. Use the code CLASSIFIED at checkout
Yes, it can be done. I do it every trip to Europe
