Last month I did a stretch of not going home for 3 weeks- I flew out Monday for work, stayed in NYC that weekend, and then flew to Chicago the following weekend to meet up with my parents there! Everyday I am thankful for being able to live a lifestyle like this- it is truly amazing. I find that a lot of the people I’m surrounded by have been traveling for so long that they’ve lost some of the appreciation for it so no matter how overly excited I am to be somewhere, I don’t tone down the enthusiasm because that’s something I don’t want to lose. When my parents asked me if I wanted to join them in Chicago I pretty quickly said yes because when I think of Chicago I think of a massive skyline, walks by the beautiful river, and delicious food (gimme all the deep dish please). We had a great trip and we took a ton of photos.

Chicago was surprisingly humid when we went (middle of October) but was still really windy- I made the mistake of wearing a dress but brought leggings to put on part way through the day thank god. I went for a very comfy outfit but one that was still street chic. My favorite piece for layering clothing is a cropped sweater! It goes over dresses perfectly without making your outfit look chunky (I also have this sweater in black and wear both constantly). Also if you can’t tell by basically all of my photos on Instagram (linked here), I’ve been obsessed with chokers. I love that these are making a comeback from the 90’s- it makes all of outfits feel cooler and edgier!img_0251 Continue reading
