Chicago Day 1
This outfit was perfect for a day on the town! The J Crew Puffer Coat kept me warm all day, and my booties had block heels, so I wasn't in complete pain by the time I got home. I found the most amazing gloves from Walgreens, which had technology that enabled me to text with them on! That is just the coolest thing to me! My Pac Sun beanie gave a perfect pop of color + fun to my outfit!
The cold hit me the second I stepped off the plane - such a refreshing change from sunny Florida! I couldn't wipe the smirk off my face because I knew that when I got out of the airport, I would see snow for the first time in 10 years! (gosh that makes me feel old >.< )
I took the train by myself for the first time and I'm not gonna lie, I was nervous! (this trip holds a lot of 'first' experiences for me!)
I met up with my friend, Ayaka, who showed me around the downtown area and took all of these photos for me! We walked around for about 6 hours so we pretty much walked through the whole state of IL.
As we walked around, I just felt continuously amazed by everything I saw. Chicago is so stunning and the white blanket of snow made it feel so calm and brought back so many childhood memories!

'Holy Name Cathedral' all I can say is WOW. This church was absolutely stunning inside and out. The photo speaks for itself.
