Just the other day my sister, hubby, and I had the chance to do 24 hours in Chicago without the kiddos! My mom and sister came to visit this past week and mom suggested that, since we were moving, we take a kid free trip to Chicago. She said we should do all the tourist things that we don’t normally get to do with them. So we totally took her up on her offer!
My sister booked the cutest boutique hotel in downtown right across from “The Bean” and we were ready to go!
We did talk about it being the middle of winter currently but all of us decided that it didn’t really matter. We would just dress warm for all the walking and make it work.
I decided to go with my brand new A&F sweater that I got on clearance just a couple weeks ago and my new J.Crew coat that I finally pulled the trigger on this year. Honestly, I also packed a parka in the car just in case the J.Crew coat wasn’t keeping me warm enough and I actually didn’t even need the parka.
I absolutely love the bright pink color of the sweater and it’s not a color I normally gravitate toward but I’m very glad I did. It turned out to be the perfect little pop of color under the coat and I see myself wearing this sweater a ton more. I also wore my favorite stretchy jeans, my Democracy jeans, and some basic flat boots to help keep my legs warm but also not hurt my feet with the miles of walking that we did.
This turned out to be the perfect outfit and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
