Recreational: Exploring Downtown Chicago in Style


I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago for the first time for work, and it completely changed my impression of Chicago. I was in town for work, but I unexpectedly had the entire afternoon and evening to explore the city and wanted to do it in style! Since I didn’t have anything other than my work clothes, I challenged myself to put together an entire outfit for under $20. Luckily I was right across the street from a Forever21 and found my new favorite piece–a persimmon high-slit midi skirt. I kept it daytime by pairing it with a bright ruffled tube top and brown gladiator sandals. Chicago, your downtown is amazing. So much to do, see, and eat!



Chicago, I’ll be back soon! I haven’t tried nearly enough beers or eaten enough deep-dish pizza. I still cry thinking of the Lou Malnati’s pizza I tried. HEAVENLY. For more about my time in Chicago, check out my blog entry! What’s your favorite place to shop when you’re on a budget? Are you as in love with Chicago as I am? As always, let me know in the comments below!

Lots of love,
