My Month in Photos // June

June has been such a fun month! My friends and I tried to do something together every weekend since two are moving out of state at the end of July. We celebrated birthdays, tried new bars and restaurants, attended a sangria fest, and did rooftop yoga. I also took a last-minute trip to my company's North American headquarters in Connecticut to meet our new global head of talent.  Below is a look into everything I did during the first month of summer.

What to Wear on the Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and I can't wait! Fireworks are one of my all-time favorite things, so this holiday is made for me. This year, I'm staying in Chicago, BBQing and watching the fireworks on the beach with friends. Fifteen of us are also renting a boat on Lake Michigan over the weekend, which will amazing (as long as it doesn't rain)!

One of the first things I prepared for Thursday's festivities was my outfit. I'm wearing this shirt from Target, similar shorts to these from Francesca's, and some very cute accessories, including a headband, earrings, and heart-shaped sunglasses.

My Favorite Jersey Dresses for Summer

I found the most comfortable dress for summer! And bonus, it's super flattering and has pockets. I bought it in two colors - one in black and one striped - because I loved it that much. Last weekend, I wore the black one for a day of rooftop bar-hopping and it was the perfect choice. The dress was lightweight, relaxed, and super cute. I started searching online for some other dresses of the same material and came across some great options. Below are my top nine styles to wear this summer. 

MY DRESS
I found my dress at Nordstrom Rack for only $20!
