chi-town.


h&m faux leather shearling jacket and skinny jeans; silence & noise sheer blouse; nasty gal pony hair leopard print belt; low luv x erin wasson tribal cuff via shopbop and scarab ring via tobi; fashionology.nl beaded bracelets, hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; forever 21 watch; asos bag and ankle boots.

here's what i wore to chicago last saturday, where i went as part of my birthday present =)
my boyfriend and i spent eight hours round trip on the road, and around eight hours shopping, so it was definitely a whirlwind trip! i didn't take but maybe ten pictures because it has just rained before we arrived and the weather was still crappy. we hit up my favorite high street shops, a pizza joint, and a few other places downtown before driving a little further north west for my first visit to an IKEA(!). i know it's not the highest quality furniture, but it sure is simple, inexpensive, and swedish, three things i adore :)

i cannot take full credit for this outfit, as it was inspired by the lovely katherine power from whowhatwear.com. she twitpic-ed this photo about two months ago, and i instantly fell in love with her perfect look. i think i have said this many times before, but it's so cool when you see an amazing outfit, and you realize that you have everything in your closet needed to recreate it. i knew i'd wear it once i finally got a shearling jacket, and my trip to chicago seemed like the perfect opportunity!


my favorite skyscraper in chicago. i think it's both commercial and residential units...how freaking amazing would it be to live at the top of this thing?! also demonstrated in this photo: new and old architecture, sitting beautifully side by side - another reason why i can't get enough of chicago.
