...Is Chanel
My super sweet sister gifted me this fun bag the other day. I was super thrilled to have a cute and funny tote added to my grab-and-go bag collection as the only other tote I have has the Harry Potter logo on it (not complaining). It got a few compliments on the El this weekend so that's a huge plus! I love getting a chance to talk to strangers, it helps me work on my social skills :3.

This weekend was on the chilly side. The windy city took a 180 temperature wise, going from hot summer to chilly, windy, "is it October or something?" weather. It was funny walking outside seeing individuals who forgot to check out the weather channel and wore their short-shorts and floppy hats with over sized sweaters and wool scarves. I did a few layering to beat the chill but forgot that this super flowy dress from Forever XXI is...well..super flowy. I had to hold it down as I walked to avoid having a Marilyn Monroe moment. It got a lot better as the day went on though. haha :). 


 Something I love about this great city is all the gorgeous little spots you find walking in a sea of skyscrapers. As Eamonn and I strutted down Michigan Ave (touristy..I know) I spotted this wonderful church that reminded me so much of my University life in Toronto. I adore Gothic architecture and vines so I quickly pulled out my Nikon and had him snap a few pictures for me. I think the spot was quite lovely - especially since I was wearing this darling hat from H&M and debuting my new white and cream oxfords. I fear I wont be in downtown anytime soon as this week is full of some more photo-shoots and other work, but it will definitely be missed. I've started packing again for life in Toronto (how has summer gone so quickly?) and I can't help but feel a bit heartbroken. It's been a very bittersweet weekend that's reminded me just how hard saying goodbye to those dear to you really is.

  6. haha, I'm actually one who loves the weird changing patterns of weather... seriously, if I can go through my wardrobe wearing jackets and colorful socks one day, and just a dress the other day, I'm one happy girl.

    This location is so beautiful! Wow, the greenery and the architecture is just gorgeous. I can't get over that. And adorable dress, too!
