With the extremely cold temps around here, I was not able to go outside today to do an outfit shoot.  Sad face! Instead, I am sharing a few photos from our trip to Chicago back in December before the holidays. It was a very cold trip in Chicago when we were in town, but we made the best of it. As we always do, lots of walking, shopping and great food. If you have yet to make a trip to the windy city, I strongly recommend visiting at least once in your life.  As for the amount of pictures this trip, it was minimal due to the cold temps and lugging around my camera the whole day.  Here, I attempted to bundle up and take a few pictures at Millennium Park, the home of the infumous bean. We were planning on going ice skating until we saw the ginormous line that was not moving.  We were meeting up with my parents for dinner soon so ice skating was out the door. In the few minutes we were standing around the ice rink, I did witness a young couple getting engaged right on the ice. It was awesome to watch something like that happen even though I do not or will never know those two individuals.  Hey, if you ever read this those two people, I wish you a lifetime of happiness and love! It is crazy to think it has been almost three years since we got engaged in Chicago!

During the cold months of Chicago, it is necessary to dress in lots of layers and bundle up. That is exactly what I did here.  There is more of a chill in the air which is more than likely the ‘lake effect’.  You are unable to see exactly what I have on under the coat for a good reason, for me to keep warm!  Tall boots, ear muffs, large scarf and long coat were a definite must when I was packing my bag for the trip. Have you been to Chicago in the winter?  Most people visit in the summer, but since we live within driving distance it is an easy getaway weekend anytime of year for us.  Oh and the shopping, the shopping is awesome. 🙂  My husband is a huge foodie fan so we always try new restaurants when we visit. Great food!  Are you ready to plan a trip? What do you like packing in your bag to stay warm and cute at the same time?

XOXO,

Jessica
