In honor of the FIRST official week of summer (although in Chicago, it doesn’t always feel like it!) I’ve paired up today with an iconic brand that often synonymous with summer: Tommy Bahama!
I know what you’re thinking and yes–my dad also owns plenty of Tommy Bahama vacation-chic Hawaiian shirts (after all, that’s what they’re known for!) but the brand has completely revamped their women’s line, and also added some amazing modern mens pieces, too! One of my favorite things about being a blogger is that I get to partner with companies and spread the word about the fresh new things they’re doing, and this, my friends, is certainly one of them.
I remember a couple years ago when everyone thought Loft was only for moms (it’s true, you know it is)–now they’re one of my favorite stores! I see the same big things coming up for Tommy Bahama, and totally fell in love with the store and some new additions that are catered more toward the millennial crowd–same breezy look and feel, but with a younger, modern twist.
This past weekend, Neal and I had Kelly and Mitch over to the roof for some cocktails (fine, they were Miller Lights and Tecates) and these breezy basics were perfect for a casual rooftop occasion. This linen button down has since replaced my standard Ralph Lauren oxford for the summer (and looks so cute belted with a cheetah belt!) and the striped pastel linen shorts are the perfect length (not too long or too short–which is hard for me to find!) Also–let’s talk about these sandals. Super comfy and the prettiest shade of cognac leather. (It’s no wonder Kelly, Shaheen and I all went for the same pair!)
They also have some really adorable home accessories which I spent over 30 minutes perusing–think chic, beachy barware, adorable candles, coffee table books, and more.
All in all, I’m kind of obsessed. That being said, I’ll be definitely hanging out at their Michigan Avenue store event along with Windy City Blogger Collective, as well as Kelly, Shaheen, Zahra and Johanna on July 1st from 6pm-8pm! Come see their new arrivals and say hi! There will be cocktails, appetizers, and some AMAZING gift bags that you won’t want to miss out on.
You can RSVP here. Hope to see you there!
What do you think? Would you wear these summer staples?
