OOTD: Chicago Adventures

The past few days I have been spending my time with one of my best friends from school! She came down from Iowa to visit me here in Illinois. 
(She is making her own fashion blog so stay tuned for colabs with her!)

While she was here we stayed in a fabulous hotel suite downtown on Michigan Avenue! It was such a fun and fabulous weekend. 

For our first day in Chicago I wore my new faux fur vest. This kept me super warm seeing how it was basically 10 degrees the whole time we were in the city! I paired it with my go-to denim button down and a pair of black and gold skinnies. 

The skinny jeans have a super cool cheetah print in a gold metallic color. The print is subtle but still shows while your wearing them. 

For accessories I wore my favorite J Crew necklace that I got on super clearance at the store! It was only around $12! Can't beat that deal. And of course I wore my favorite arm candy and Michael Kors watch. To finish the look I wore a bold red lip. I love how the red pops from the otherwise dark look.

I was super excited that a Vineyard Vines store opened on Michigan Avenue! There bags are so darling! 

We ate dinner at Volare which is an Italian restaurant. It was AMAZING! The best service and food I have had in a long time. Not to mention this adorable dessert!
