Spring Time Sippin’ in Chicago

Spring time is HERE and you know what that means?! Floral everything, flow-y tops and rooftop season is upon us! WhenΒ it hits even 60 degrees in Chicago, it’s sandal season with no jackets sipping on Moscow mules. For tourists or locals alike, I always love going to Cindy’s Rooftop on top of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel. It is half indoor and outdoor with stellar views of Millennium Park and the Lake. When the Cubs won, my gal pal Kati and I swung up to see the exciting chaos from above. It was a day to remember to say the least. When I stop by for an early evening cocktail or at night to see the city lights, I tend to wear a leather jacket in case I get cold, with boots, a long black tank top and ripped jeans. Trust me, the moment it it is warm for aΒ consecutive 3 days in a row, I will be sporting my bright floral attire. Until then, leaning towards darker hues but gradually moving into spring!

In case you were trying to plan for the first warm day way in advance like myself, here are a few of my favorite rooftops in Chicago!

Any other rooftops or neighborhoods you would like to know about? Comment below and ask away! Love recommending my favorite places!
