Thursday was day 1 of Chicago vacay 2012! We got into the city at noon and found our hotel after only a small hiccup (Google maps on my iPhone apparently doesn’t know the difference between East and West Chestnut). First on the agenda was a pint of 312 and a deep dish pizza. When in Rome…

And next was shopping! I did some damage on Michigan Avenue. But not too much. I got a maxi skirt, a striped peplum jacket, lime green cropped jeans, and a white watch. And I have my eye on some boots at Nordstrom that I might go back for tomorrow!

In the photos above, you will notice my super chic tourist style. That was a little sarcastic. I’ve learned the hard way that when I’m on a city vacation, I have to plan outfits around my most comfortable shoes or else I will be a complete pain in the ass by dinner time. Day 1’s shoe was a boat shoe, which was appropriate as I did in fact board a floating vessel.

We did a sunset boat cruise on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. The view was absolutely beautiful. Here are a few photos. More fun to come!

  3. […] day: one where I get to wear two outfits. The first outfit was possibly even more touristy that my Day 1 outfit. Sneakers, shorts, ponytail? Hey, it was a hot day with lots of walking. I did what I had to […]
