CHICAGO: Weekend Away

Last weekend I was in Chicago to visit a close friend and for my Sip & Shop event with Ready to Stare at BLAIR! I had a wonderful time! Susun is an amazing host and it is always a pleasure catching up and spending time together. Plus, I loved getting to know other amazing ladies through our Sip & Shop event. 

For the first time in my life, I actually missed my flight! It was completely my fault, too. But, Southwest was awesome and I was on the next flight to out of New Orleans to Chicago - no problems or complications. Susun and I spent time catching while walking around Lincoln Park.  (I always love walking but am even more focused on making time for walks since I started wearing a pedometer. No, not a Fit Bit. A dorky, old-school pedometer. I love it!) We snapped some fab photos while we were out.


OUTFIT: I recently found this over-sized top while thrifting. The chillier Chicago weather was a great opportunity to wear it. Paired with Torrid's stiletto skinny jeans, Torrid booties, bangles, Lane Bryant sunnies, and one of my favorite scarves that's too thick/warm to wear now in humid NOLA.

Fun included walks around the city, visiting the lovely Lincoln Park Conservatory, eating lots of great food, and relaxing at King Spa & Sauna after the Sunday event. Speaking of - stay tuned for another post about the fabulous Sip & Shop event!

This trip kicks off quite a few travel weekends in the upcoming months. Several trips to Minnesota for weddings and wedding related celebration, a beach bachelorette party weekend, a trip to Miami, and more. Looking forward to sharing my excitements throughout the summer!
