I spent the weekend in Chicago with two of my best friends and had an absolute blast. I tried really hard to actually lug my camera around with me wherever we went to document little snippets of the windy city. Although we had CTA passes, we walked around the majority of the time — which is always a favorite thing of mine to do in a new city. We saw more, and hey, burned off all the SERIOUS calories we took in ( at least, that’s the hope ).

On Saturday, we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo for a few hours and enjoyed the animals + people watching galore. We were particularly proud of our matching attire for the day. Chambray for the win. We attempted to research nice italian restaurants for the evening, but ended up eating at our second deep dish pizza joint of the weekend. First night was Giordano’s. Second was Gino’s East. Our consensus was loving Giordano’s just a little bit more.

I’ve always found travel ( no matter how near or far ) to be one of the most calming + mind opening opportunities. It’s been a goal of mine to do it more, so I couldn’t be more happier to have had such a blast with these two this weekend. It was the kind of weird / hilarious / perfect reunion we needed. Until next time, Chicago … and thank you for not denting my rear bumper this time around.

  1. Chicago’s deep dish pizza is kind of the stuff that dreams are made of, if you ask me. So glad you had fun!! I love that city

  2. Chicago is always a fun place to be with friends. And you’re absolutely right, vacationing can be very relaxing and calming!

    P.S- Love the photography!

    Loving the denim, by the way. :)

    So glad you had a great time with your friends in Chicago! I completely agree with you about walking everywhere — when I first made the big move to Sacramento, I walked everywhere — for months! And I swear if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have any idea how to navigate this city… lol
