chi town bound

images via the blonde salad

tomorrow morning at this time my husband and i will be boarding the plane for chicago with my lovely in-laws including brother-in-law and our rambunctious always-down-for-a-good-time mutual single friend. all headed out to see my other brother-in-law. for outfit inspiration i am pulling from the adorable "newcomer of the year" chiara, blogger behind the blonde salad. packing lots of tights, shorts, hats, blouses and big coats. things i am looking forward to:
-vosges chocolate on the plane
 -staying here and warming up to the in-room fireplace
-ordering room service in bed
-brunches with copious amounts of wine and mimosas
-dinners at la madia and rad mexican dive chilapan
-blasting the new adele album on my ipad until husband is maxed out
-testing out my new homemade fingerless gloves constructed from an old pair of tights
-post brunch tipsy shopping excursions and museum explorations
-catching up with an old friend and my awesome new brother and documenting it all with my new lens

plenty of pics when i return...have an awesome weekend!


  1. i have been very sad recently that it is so warm in austin that i cannot rock my floppy felt 1970's winter hat. i wore it every chance i could get while in chicago for thanksgiving and christmas.

    im slightly jealous that you are headed to my hometown.... but can't wait to see the pics and hear the report!

    museum of contempary art is a definite well as the new modern wing at the art institute!

    hello to the husband!

  2. I like brunches with copious amounts of wine and mimosas too - the BEST on vacations!!! Have fun!!

  3. Thanks for the blog reminder! Can't wait to see pics. What camera do you shoot? WE should lunch.
