Last week, some friends and I had the brilliant idea to swing through Chi-town for a couple days on our way to a wedding in Illinois. I have loved this city ever since my mom brought me here in high school to visit a potential college. Chicago is fantastic because you have that big city feel, but the people have a more down to earth, friendly attitude. Also, you can’t beat the stunning architecture all over the city. During our day of sightseeing and being tourists, we visited Millennium Park to see the Cloud Gate, or, as most people call it, “The Bean.” Honestly, I think the latter name is much more appropriate for this sculpture seeing as how its just a massive mirrored bean, but I guess Cloud Gate sounds more sophisticated. It’s reflective surface just begged for a photo op, so of course I couldn’t resist.
On a side note, I’m pretty obsessed with this top. Wearing sheer clothing has been a big trend in the last couple years, but it can be a hard trend to pull off. I think the key is finding something with just the right amount of sheerness without giving everyone a full on show of your underwear. If that’s what you are into, hey, I am not judging, but a little mystery is kinda cool if you ask me.
We also took a trip to the Willis tower. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything quite like standing on glass 103 floors above ground…the feeling is truly unreal.
As a public service announcement, if you visit Chicago, let me advise you to never set your purse down for one second. I made that mistake and learned the hard way when my phone and credit card was stolen. Suffice it to say I have been in major iPhone withdrawals for the past week and can’t wait to pre-order my iPhone 6 later tonight.
Have a great afternoon, and thanks for reading! xo
