Matt and I went to a tree lighting this week at the Waldorf Astoria here in Chicago. Before they lit the tree, they said that is what Chicago considered the start of the holiday season! If you caught it on Instagram, the magic was real! It was so beautiful, not to mention romantic. And with the holidays almost here, you’re probably wondering what to wear. I got you!
I’m a workout addict. If I don’t workout in the morning, I feel off. Which means I spend a lot of time in workout clothing and have some strong opinions about what makes for the best gear. And I was blown away by this outfit from Athleta – especially the leggings!
If there’s anything I learned from moving to Chicago, it’s that cold weather gear is essential. Things like boots are not only fashionable but also functional. And every girl in the Midwest, east coast, and Canada needs this arsenal of boots to get her through winter.
I feel like this week has been the week of boots (and of course the 12 best fall scarves). If that tells you anything about my mentality this year, it’s that I plan to go into winter fully prepared. I’ve already found my favorite heeled bootand now I’ve found a great winter boot.
When I first moved to Chicago, one of the first things people told me was that I needed SOREL boots. Everyone I talked to who lived in a colder climate swore by them. They are the best. Really, they’re the only stylish waterproof boots out there. With fall here and winter soon to follow, it was time for me to refresh my boot closet (my boots get the most wear and tear here) so this year I went with these Danica Booties.
