Adventures with the In-laws Lookbook







Topshop Red Imperial Shell  |  Rag & Bone Blue Skinny Denim  |  Chanel Bag (similar vintage)  |

Christian Louboutin Heels (similar)  |  J12 Chanel Watch  |  t+j Designs earrings  |

My in-law came into town last weekend and I spent Sunday with them exploring the burbs of Chicago.  My father in-law took all these photos, including the lookbook ones!  He has an extensive knowledge of photography and cameras; besides being the family photographer for every get together, he advises us on photography items.  

We took a beautiful tour of the surrounding areas of Glenview and North Shore, but my favorite two stops was Hackney’s and The Chalet Nursery.  We sat outside at Hackney’s, enjoying the beautiful weather and the delicious burger on rye bread.  If you go, don’t forget the onion ring loaf!  I don’t even like onion rings, but these were fantastic.  Our stop after lunch was The Chalet Nursery.  This place was huge and had everything you needed for the outdoors but also a bit of home decor items inside.  Gorgeous flowers, blooming floral trees, and luscious plants everywhere.  I got a patio set perfect for our deck.  The burbs of Chicago are gorgeous, but at this point I am still a city girl.  

Heading to a girls weekend in another big city, so excited!  I’ll be taking photos with my nifty Instagram application all weekend long.  It’s my favorite application (as you can see in one of the photos above, I’m clicking away).  Find me on it under redsolesredwine.  

Don’t forget, our giveaway ends on Monday at 8/29 at midnight PST!  Luxe jewels for free!
