This month has been a strange combo of winter and full-on summer here in Chicago, and even though I’m resigned to no weight on my left foot for yet another 4 weeks (bringing the total at that point to 12 weeks) I am excited for summer.
I am not a backpack person. Big, supple leather bags, that’s my thing. Until I realized I’d be on one foot for months. I found a cute, functional pack that I have grown to love. It fits a surprising amount, it’s pretty comfortable, and is totally reasonable in price (also available on Amazon.com).
Cole Haan ZeroGrand Perforated Trainers
These babies are my new go-to shoe. They are comfy, they are cute, and will perfect to walk around the city with when I’m back on both feet.
The West Wing
After this season’s shows ended, I was left with a big gap of time to fill while sitting on the couch. Given the craziness of this election season, and being a recovering political junkie (poli sci major and 4 years as a policy analyst in DC) I decided to re-watch what is arguably the best television show in history. I had forgotten so many plot lines, and have been amazed at how much is applicable to today’s election circus. If you’ve never watched it, go watch a few episodes. It’s on Netflix!
What are you loving this month?
