STRIPE STORY


Top and Skirt - A-Thread, Cuff - Vanessa Mooney

Just came back from Chicago last night and I have to say that the windy city definitely left a deep impression on me. The wide, wide downtown streets hustling and bustling with people; the epic rows of architecturally profound buildings that seem straight out of a movie set; the conveniently located beach right behind our hotel; the hipster ridden Wicker Park full of soul music dance nights and metal bars full of sweaty, bearded men; Viagra Triangle, where we learned you go NOT to get picked up by rich old men, but to MAKE FUN of them (and eat good Italian food). I loved how you could go from a Beverly Hills-esque shopping mega center to a quaint street lined with brownstones with stoops made for lazy summer evenings in just a few minutes. The Midwest, you have stolen my heart. I hope to see you again! And thanks to our darling Caylee for taking us around to her favorite Wicker Park spots! We love and miss you!

More pictures to come from our trip, but until I find the chance to actually sit down and go through them all, let me leave you with an outfit post from not too long back. As you can tell, stripes are sort of my thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang.

I love Chicago, I've been twice, that seems like many moons ago. I've been dieing to go back. It is such a fun city. That's where I went to stalk Nsync, lol j/k. I went to a concert in Joliet, but they stayed in Chicago and my friend and I found their hotel. Unfortunately, we did not find them though:( That was my one chance to meet Justin Timberlake. Bummer.


Glad you enjoyed it. Love the outfit too. Stripes are my second favorite print, my first is polka-dots of course.
