Travel Guide: Chicago

chicago-travel-guide-city

Since my brother moved to the Chicago area several years ago, it’s become one of my favorite places to travel to. The flight from Little Rock is so quick, making it an easy trip, and one I really enjoy. Now that I’ve traveled to the area several times, I thought it would be fun to put together a little travel guide of some of my favorite museums, coffee shops, and other fun things–

plus it’s an excuse to share way to many photos from my most recent trip!

What I Wore in Chicago | 4 Travel Outfits (& a Vlog!)

IMG_2398

Happy Monday friends! To kick off the Chicago posts, today I’m sharing what I wore while I was traveling. I like to keep things pretty minimal when I’m away, and for this trip I ended up packing 13 pieces of clothing. It gave me a lot of options to choose from, but still let me just take a carry-on bag, because who wants to stand in the check-in line? For travel I like to stick to a few basics that I know will be comfortable and easy to wear, and I also like to throw in a fun piece or two to mix things up. Staples in my travel wardrobe include stretchy jeans, striped tees, comfy sweaters, sneakers, and a crossbody bag. Read on to the end to find my Chicago travel vlog which features three more outfits!

Whether you’re planning a travel wardrobe, or just want some easy outfit inspiration, read on!

The Weekender // No. 18

chicago-evanston-coffee-shopWell friends, another weekend is here, and I’m spending it trying to get over a cold which means lots of ginger tea and quiet work. Despite being ill, I can’t say I’m mad about it! I got back from Chicago late Wednesday night, and can’t wait to share all of the content I shot while I was traveling– I even tried my hand at creating a travel and outfit vlog that I’ll be posting to my YouTube channel soon! Life has been pretty quiet this week since I’m a teacher, and it’s spring break. I’m grateful for the opportunity to rest and recover, and I’m looking forward to being back to working with my students on Monday.

But for now, it’s time for another round of weekend links!
