Do you guys know that the origin of Chicago’s “Windy City” nickname has three other possible explanations besides the weather? The World’s Fair, the city’s rivalry with Cincinnati, and its politics. The weather thing is the real deal, though. I can’t even tell you how many photos Blair and I had to take in order to get these pics! ;)
A couple of weeks ago, I flew to South Beach (for the second time in two months!) for my future sister-in-law’s bachelorette party. I had no problem getting there from Chicago, but everyone coming from the northeast? Quite the different story. Poor Kim had her flight flat-out cancelled, and so many of the other girls dealt with major delays from the snowstorm. (Remember the flight that skidded off the runway at La Guardia? Yeah. That occurred on the day Kim tried to fly out.) I spent the first night alone, but eventually–after much fighting with the airlines–everyone made it!
Quick post today, as I’m traveling yet again. I was actually home on the East Coast for the past few days for my future sister-in-law’s bridal shower! (I apologize that I’ve fallen completely behind on my blog posts.) Today, I’m making that fabulous 12- to 14-hour drive back to Chicago, where these photos were taken. (I’m clearly in a fashion rut. Light blue sweater all day, every day!)
Woo! Guys, the Bloomingdale’s Friends & Family Sale is on. From now until March 29th, you can take 25 percent off most merchandise with code “FRIENDS.” Of course, there’s so much on sale right now. But shop my favorite bags–because I have a bag problem–below! :)
Well, my friends… Chicago has been blanketed in many inches of snow once again, and this girl is feeling down in the dumps about the whole thing. March 16th was such a tease. (Remember this post?) So let’s throw it back to last week, when I was under the impression that winter was over.
The L.L.Bean Signature Instagram Takeover might technically be over, but this girl still has a lot of L.L.Bean-inspired posts up her sleeve. Like this one! How fabulous is this gingham dress?! It’s sure to sell out fast (as most adorable gingham pieces do), so be sure to nab one before it’s too late! Sizing tip: It fits true to size. :)
