HELLO FROM THE WINDY CITY!


Just wanted to stop in for a quick hello from Chicago, the windy city! Natalie and I are about to head out to start off our second day in the city. We are craving some bagels! Yesterday we chilled by Oak Street Beach near our hotel and soaked in some sun. Crazy how much I felt like I was back in California. It wasn't too hot and that breeze made it feel like we were really by an ocean, even though it was actually Lake Michigan! We went aimlessly around the city, taking in the gorgeous buildings and lake views, before meeting up with our friend Caylee for a night out at the Rad and Refined summer launch party. We danced on the street to Cat Daddy playing on our phones and posed by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios for a bit since we couldn't find a cab back to our hotel. We make the best of even the most annoying of situations. We plan on heading to Navy Pier today and then trawling out of this touristy part of town and over to Wicker Park for some thrifting, good food, and dive bars. Thank goodness we have Caylee, who has lived in Wicker Park for a year now and can show us her favorite spots.

That's it for now. Have a lovely day!

You HAVE to go to Uno's or Lou Malnati's for authentic Chicago Pizza! Or Portillos for an Italian Beef Sandwich. Ahhh I seriously wish I was there right now so I could meet you! Have a great time with Caylee and your sis in the best city ever:)
