My head's like a kite, all my thoughts run astray - Chicago, IL

Dolce Vita elbow cutout cropped sweater, Loden Dager tee, Rag & Bone jeggings, Marc Jacobs and Chanel necklaces

These past couple months have been a frenzy, pretty much living out of a suitcase. Been flying to different cities every few weeks at a frequency that makes unpacking inefficient. Currently in Chicago, thanks to those who suggested awesome places to eat and drink! So far we loved all the restaurants and bars we've been to, especially Girl & the Goat (Top Chef season 4 winner Stephanie Izard's restaurant and she even took a photo with us!) and Longman & Eagle (voted GQ's top 10 restaurants in America). Definitely having fun in this foodie city with lots of beautiful architecture and design, except I don't think I was prepared for the excruciating subzero weather. Waiting 2 hours in line outside at Hot Dougs today was brutal even with two coats on, but ordering 4 gourmet hotdogs kinda made up for it. So glad I brought what I call my sleeping bag coat by Spiewak that has a funnel neck and is down to my shins, covers a great deal of surface area on my body, probably the best purchase I've ever made that was underappreciated until now.

Anyway, these pics were taken at the Art Institute of Chicago museum (lots of dreamy Claude Monet pieces in the Impressionism exhibit that almost transported me to the Seine.. will visit one day) and Grahamwich (remix on classic sandwiches). Love this cropped Dolce Vita sweater for the long sleeves, crew neck, and elbow cutouts that are always falling awkwardly at my triceps.
