Sweet Home Chicago

Taking photos in a busy downtown location is pretty darn fun.
I'm so used to taking photos in a secluded area near my apartment,
so it was quite exciting snapping photos while families bustled by on a busy summer day.

This is what I wore on a lunch date with friends, followed by some shopping with my sister.
We hit up H&M, ZARA, Forever 21, and a few other favorites on Michigan Ave.
I truly love this city.

Have any of you ever visited Chicago?
How do you think it compares to other big cities?

I hope you all have a perfect weekend!
A few of my friends are driving down from Wisconsin for a visit,
so it's gonna be loads of fun!


  1. I truly love the outfit! The bright turquoise and brown cheetah print are such an awesome combo! I've never been to Chicago before but I know the food and art scene are really big. I hope to go eventually! Have fun!

  2. I was actually just in Chicago a few weeks ago visiting family. Our hotel was right near that spot. I've got a pic of me by the water tower too! :)

    Gosh, I miss the food. We pigged out so much... pizza, Italian beefs, hot dogs... so freakin' good!

    I miss the city... le sigh...

  3. Love, love, love that skirt. I admire you for taking pictures out in public, I am definitely too shy to but, it looks like a ton of fun! (I'm from Oshkosh!)

  4. This outfit is amazing lady, esp that skirt!! I have never been to Chicago, but it is totally on my top list of cities to visit :)



  5. I just went to NYC last month and it was my first time on the East coast and now I'm itching to visit other areas over there, especially Chicago!

  6. You are brave! I always get wigged out taking pictures in public, haha. :D Love your whole outfit, particularly the skirt!

    As for Chicago, I grew up in Michigan, so I visited Chicago all the time. I really like it! Perhaps some of it is because I have so many memories tied to the place, but I just really enjoy the city. I prefer it to New York, even.

  7. You look pretty in your pictures. =)


  8. So pretty! Love your outfit!
