Call me crazy, but everything seems a little bit darker in Chicago. I’m not talking dark as in depressing but as in light coming from the sky. Between the clouds and skyscrapers, it’s a completely different vibe that Los Angeles. For the first time in my life, I feel like I’m living in a city! And I’m 100% obsessed.

When I found out that we were moving to Chicago, my mind immediately went to my wardrobe. Are you surprised? I’d heard stories for years about the unpredictable weather and chilling wind (which we had neither of in Los Angeles)! Scarves, gloves, and boots – I was going to have to up my game on all fronts! And fast! Zappos was my first stop because of the great selection and super fast shipping. Matt likes to brag to me about he has VIP status on their site for 1 day delivery – little does he know everyone gets fast shipping hehe!
YAS. This burgundy turtleneck is everything! If you had to pick one item to live in for the rest of fall, it would be this tunic. Trust me. It’s that amazing. Wear it to work, style it on the weekend, sleep in it. I don’t care. Just know you need it.
I feel like I’m constantly on the hunt for clothing that can be worn both to work and outside of it. While I’m grateful starched button ups aren’t a requirement in my office (that would make this task impossible), it is still no easy feat! Too trendy, too revealing, or too boring – that’s usually how my search goes. Oh, and add affordable as a requirement to that list. However, I always find at least a few options like this grey layered top (on sale for $29)!
