Hi everyone! My friend Nancy and I recently took off for a “how to stylishly pair shorts” shoot and ended up on 18th Street in Pilsen, a historic and hip lower west side neighborhood in Chicago! Filled with gorgeous architecture and bright murals (almost on every corner!), we couldn’t decide where to stop for the photography.
Because we craved a sweet treat and rich coffee, we decided to settle on Café Jumping Bean’s comfortable stoop and outdoor bench. The temperature was and has been perfect, and the sun was giving off a beautiful light. Everything was delicious!
This flowy yellow top from Antropologie is one of my favorites to pair with short shorts. I like to keep things balanced and never fully-fitted from head to toe. The Michael Kors heels are a perfect height to style with shorts too. It all comes together as a well polished look for “73 and sunny in Chicago” weather, don’t you think? What are you wearing on these gorgeous sunny days?
Café Jumping Bean is located on the corner of 18th Street and Bishop and has served the Pilsen/Little Village community and outlying Chicago neighborhoods since 1994.
