They need to call it Taco Monday because there's no better cure for a weekend hangover than a great taco. We're talking about the best tacos from El Gallo Tapatio II in Crestwood, IL. It is by far our favorite taqueria in Chicago and we stopped there yesterday for a quick taco to cure the wine buzz from the night before. While there, I was once again amused by the decor that depicts women in traditional roles like cooking and cleaning while men are pictured heroically riding horses or romantically playing the guitar. Yet, behind the counter were a couple of male chefs! But pictures or no, these chefs are creating the one of the best taco experiences on the Southside of Chicago.
Whether running errands or stopping by your favorite taqueria, you need essential and comfortable clothes to look and feel your best. I was rockin' the Luxe Denim Slim Fit Jeans but wanted to try a new headband someone delivered with their consignment. I was not as much a fan of the headband as the colorful and practical Beaded Vintage Style Tribal Print Cotton Tote Bag, and I'm totally in love with how this bag looks with my summer sandals.
Currently available in our Poshshop or in our Facebook Shop, its two huge front pockets carry summer essentials and my phone for quick pics. The inside is deep, and the wide straps make even a heavy load (like a couple of water bottles) an easy carry on extended shopping trips.
So how do you (or do you) celebrate Taco Tuesday? Let us know, and we'll make sure you've go the right bag!
