Chicago

Everyone needs a little day trip from time to time.  This week my husband needed to head to Chicago for business, so I took a personal day and tagged along.  We spent the morning and afternoon playing tourists.  We visited some landmarks, battled the selfie-obsessed crowds at the Willis Tower, and got some local deep dish at the insistence of my foodie husband.

I have always struggled to find a good balance between comfortable and stylish clothes while on trips.  I want to dress nice, but often find it difficult to find stylish shoes that are good for walking.  I was smart enough to leave my beloved high heeled pumps at home.  I knew it was going to be hot so I opted for a loose pleated midi skirt, a ruffled silken top and strappy flats.  I was pretty comfortable walking around downtown all day, so maybe I am getting the hang of things!

Aw yes. I don't travel often, but one thing that I have definitely learned the hard way is---cute flats > sore feet when you are trying to have fun. Lovely look! Sounds like a fun little day date trip!
