Side of Style Chicago: Summer House Santa Monica

Summer House Santa Monica’s eternal California beach vibes finally fit in on Halsted Ave in Lincoln Park, which means its officially sweet summertime in Chicago! When you enter the restaurant, you’ll immediately have a sunny outlook on life. The bright green hanging ferns and streaming sunlight through the glass roof make the ‘Vitamin D’ dining room feel like an open air patio on the beach.

The menu at Summer House is light and fresh, perfect for a summertime brunch with the ladies. Our favorite dishes include the pillowp-like buttermilk pancakes and big breakfast sandwhiches. Read our full Summer House Santa Monica review here.

We love the casual yet sophisticated look of the Splendid Jumpsuit in an olive hue paired with Michael Kors nautical rope sandals, a small wicker clutch and chic translucent round sunglasses. Complete the look with California-fresh accessories like the natural turquoise and gold druzy necklace and bright tassel bracelet from Bauble Bar.

Post-Brunch, stop at the quaint bakery counter up front for a big salted caramel cookie to fuel your Saturday Lincoln Park shopping trip. Never forget, summertime in Chicago is fleeting so make the most of it, Bitches!
