I have always loved a little boho style. Not Mary-Kate or Sienna Miller levels. More like a dash of non-conformist—a patchwork print, a billowy blouse, coin-studded anything—paired with elegant (enter the bag) and modern (cue the sneakers) pieces. I never like one thing all the way through. You can shop this boho beaded kimono, plus a slew of other great boho style jackets, here. Now let’s talk about doughnuts.
Chicago has a lot of great doughnut shops. A lot. One of my favorite shops is Doughnut Vault. You can go to other shops for strips of bacon and even scoops of gelato on your doughnut. Doughnut Vault has its own interesting selection—chestnut, salted caramel, wedding cake (the menu changes daily)—but nothing beats their glazed old-fashioned. There are two locations. This one is on Franklin and Kinzie, right across from the Merchandise Mart. (The other is at 111 N. Canal St.) The place on Franklin has a great boho style of its own. The only tables are outside on the sidewalk in the summer. There’s usually a line in the morning and the shop closes once they sell out. They also have a van that makes stops around town. Bonus: Drip coffee at the Franklin shop is $1; you’ll have to visit Canal for lattes and other coffee drinks.
