Layers and Vacation

Vacation so far has been amazing. I shared with you the images from the work party and have been enjoying time with my friends here in Chicago — but best of all, on Sunday my best friend bussed in from Columbus.

Kelley and I have been friends for a while and have had so many laughs over the years. I am so excited that she got the chance to visit this week. We've spent a good amount of time going out, meeting people, shopping, and eating delicious food. We have been having an excellent time!

Kelley also brought a gift — this amazing bolo tie! I totally adore it and it's probably one of the most unique pieces of jewelry I've gotten in a long time. Thank you, Kelley!

I also picked up a pair of Dr. Martens 1460 boots a few weeks ago. We've had a few snows here in Chicago and these boots have been a total game changer. They're great in this Midwest winter and I definitely recommend a pair.

I also took her down to the planetarium for [what I consider to be] the best view of the skyline! Luckily the weather hasn't been bad since she got here and we were able to pull this off without freezing to death.

This outfit is from Monday when we hit up Cloud Gate and shopping on Michigan Avenue. I bought this J. Crew coat about four years ago back in Columbus and it has been the only winter coat I've needed since!
