Headed to the Taste of Chicago (June 24-July 3) this summer? Wondering what to wear? Don’t worry, ladies, we’ve got you covered. To beat the heat and maximize comfort, a maxi dress is your best bet. Ella Moss makes a beautiful cotton racerback maxi. Pair it with pretty flat sandals. Joie McCartney braided thong sandals are simple, and work well with any long, flowing dress. Keep your look simple by adding a few choice accessories. A well-placed beaded necklace, or silver wrist cuff adds an elegant boho touch without going overboard. To give it a touch of color and design, throw a bright exotic-print tote bag over your shoulder. Madewell sells a great colorful sisal tote bag by Bamboula, Ltd., a Kenyan fair-trade company. If you are going to wear a statement bag, the statement should be that you support a great cause, and you look good doing it.
Enjoy the Taste of Chicago. This is the world’s biggest culinary street festival. And Chicago has some of the best restaurants waiting for you to sample their wares. Keep cool, look good, and save me a slice of Beggar’s deep dish!
