  1. Oh this looks so effortlessly stylish! Love it. You accessorise sooo well. Were you freezing? Or do you get used to the weather? I was in Chicago about this time few years ago. Omg I almost froze but it was beautiful and magical especially the Christmas markets! You rock winter fashion!

    1. Hey Cassie! This day was luckily a warm-ish day. But it was still pretty cold. You kind of get used to it. I think dreading it so much, makes the reality a little better. Kind of like, “Oh, I was thinking of horrible THIS was going to be all summer. It’s not THAT bad”. So glad you were here around Christmas. That is definitely the most magical time of winter. And thanks girl! I’m trying! haha 🙂 xx

    1. Hey Catherine,
      That’s true. We do get to wear awesome coats but it comes at a price! You guys get to wear things like tank tops with scarves and leather jackets with shorts though, which is something that is almost never appropriate in Chicago, no matter what time of year! haha. Give and take I guess. Glad you like it 🙂 xx

  2. Ok, I love this look! Simple, comfortable and so so cute!… I want that necklace and coat. Where did you get them? Thanks for making my week and waking me up to a great new post 🙂
