OOTD: Day in the City

Weird weather days in Chicago call for busting out a lighter coat! A Saturday in the city calls for all sorts of fun adventures. For the first time I went ice skating at Maggie Daley park. They have a huge ice skating ribbon and winds around the park. Not going to lie it was STRESSFUL. There was a lot of down hill skating and everyone was going super fast. So, word of warning: if you can't skate real well don't skate here. My boyfriend played hokey his entire life so he basically just held my hand and dragged me around. If I was on my own it would not have been pretty. 

As for my outfit, I kept things pretty simple. Since we were walking around outside most of the day my Barbour Beadnell Polarquilt was the main attraction. To complete the look I paired it with a matching tartan scarf. Shameless plug: Barbour makes matching scarves to go with your tartan jacket cuff. I love the look it creates!

Underneath my jacket I just wore a simple creme sweater and my go-to pair of Paige denim jeans. Nothing crazy over here, but this is what I wear on a day-to-day basis! Seeing fun blogger outfits is great and all, but sometimes it's unrealistic to be all dolled up all of the time. My normal style is pretty casual now and days! This outfit is a perfect example of my go-to look during the winter.

As for accessories I'm sporting the usual: Alex and Ani bangles, Michele watch, and pearl studs. Something new to the mix is a little Christmas gift from the boyfriend is a Hermes click bracelet. I've been crushing on this bracelet for quite some time, so I was so excited to unwrap a little orange box for Christmas!
