As I may or may not have made evident on this blog over the past year, I am obsessed with Chicago. I wanted to do a series about experiencing Chicago as a local, so I’ve teamed up with NastyGal to show off my favorite spots in this NastyGalsAboutTown series.
Chicago is a city that screams practicality, and you can’t ignore that when living here. I think it is partly due to it’s midwest inhabitants and partly due to the weather. Chicago’s influences have melted together to focus my style into practical city chic with a bohemian edge. At least, I like to think so. Above, I am at one of my favorite dive bars, Sportsman’s Club. It is a close 5 minute Uber ride from my apartment and has such a low key but interesting vibe. I always choose it when I just want to grab a casual drink with a friend. The music isn’t too loud so you can have good conversation – a necessity for me when getting a drink these days (first sign of that aging thing happening, perhaps?). Not only that, but the clientele is interesting. Interesting to look at, interesting to talk to, just interesting. I love being in a big city as you never know who you will meet. There are so many people to learn from and that excites me. Oh, and did I mention they have a great patio?
