My boyfriend and I are heading to Chicago next week for a quick getaway. I’m excited to see the bean and even more excited to taste this deep dish pizza that I’ve heard so much about.
But here’s the deal, guys. It’s going to be literally freezing. I know to those of you reading from other parts of the country (or world!) this may sound pretty lame, but I’m actually a bit nervous about the weather. I remember the last time I was in Chicago being the coldest I’ve ever been.
Last week we were chatting about packing and we realized that neither of us had an appropriate winter coat. And I’m not saying that in the “oh but I just need a new winter coat” way, though I’m totally guilty on occasion. I’m saying that in the literal, the only coat I have is the one I wore in DC which barely did the trick for late autumn, way. Yeah.
So we spent Saturday combing through shelves looking for something to properly Michelin-Man me, and thank goodness, Nordstrom Rack came through. It’s surprisingly hard to find anything resembling a winter coat in LA.
Anyways, I’ve also picked up one of these scarves, which I think are adorable. A friend showed me hers in Oregon and I loved their versatility. Have you seen this video?
Between this creative cat and my favorite fur infinity scarf, I think I’ll survive.
Have you been to Chicago? Do you have any recommendations — where to go, what to eat? I’d love to know.
Here I come, Chicago! I can’t wait to see you!
