Spring's Top 10



I can't believe Spring is already here. Although, the month of March signifies this season, Chicago is holding onto Winter with a vengeance (currently 20 degrees outside). Even so, because this approaching season means being able to be outside, I have a bucket list of which I want to complete when nice weather finally does come around.

Here are my top 10 Things to do this Spring.

1.
Head to Cindy's Rooftop - It's a fairly new place in the Athletic Association hotel, but I've heard nothing but good thing about this nautical-esq vibe rooftop and bar. 

2.
Find a recipe that includes baked goods and Matcha green tea. A friend of mine recently brought Matcha cookies to the office, and they were the perfect amount of refreshing and sweet. I couldn't believe a cookie could actually be refreshing until I tried these. 

3.
Buy fresh flowers from the farmers market. There are so many farmer's markets that start to pop up around the city when Spring/Summer hits. A few of the ones I want to try are the Federal Plaza farmers market and the Green City Market in Lincoln Park.

4.
Find my perfect pair of distressed denim in a light wash. Have yet to be able to find a pair that have distressed characteristics that hit my body type in the right places (suggestions welcome!- please leave a comment)

5.
Paint my studio apartment. Because I live in an older building, some of the aesthetic show the wear and tear of time. I would love to add a pop of color or freshen up the vibe.

6. 
Make better use of my planner. Things can get away from me and I want to do a better job at organizing things for both my career, blog and personal en devours. 

7.
Take advantage of the city's lakefront. When I first moved downtown, I was an avid runner on the trail by the lake and would love to get back into it in these warmer months

8.
Give outdoor yoga a try 

9.
Rent a Divvy bike for a day and use it to travel around the city

10.
Try to master new hair styles. I sometimes tend to stick to one or two styles because of time or honestly I'm just too lazy to learn how to do more. I'm kicking this off Friday with a post on how to style a Bun Pin accessory from My Kitsch! Follow me on Instagram @pleasantlypetite to see two styled looks.
