Finally downloaded my photos from Labor Day weekend and thought I would share a little bit of what we did in the lovely city of Chicago. A little shopping, some delicious chicken sandwiches, and a bit of Cubs were in the mix. We headed to Michigan Avenue and our first stop was one of my favorite fast food places, Chick-fil-A! Since it has opened this summer I’ve gone three times, not exactly diet friendly food, but it is so delicious I can’t avoid it when I’m on Michigan Avenue. We did a little bit of shopping, but I’m saving my energy for the Topshop shopping preview tomorrow!
Saturday we spend the day at the Cubs game and as you see, I dressed casually to support the team! I am not a huge sports fan, but I’ve got to say going to a Cubs game is something anyone visiting or living in Chicago has to do. The stadium is the perfect size; you can see from any seat and it’s smaller than the new fields, and the fans here are dedicated. After downing a hot dog, nachos and a beer I wasn’t feeling too well, but you can’t go to a game without eating the food.
I’ve come across some fantastic blogs through my comments and excited to have some new followers! Blogging has been such a great way to stay creative and meet friends everywhere. Thanks for the support and lovely comments. By the way, if you are on twitter, connect with me, I love keeping up to date with peeps daily.
A final share of my weekend, my living room needed artwork and I took the plunge and did my first piece. Taking in colors from our home, I just gave it a go. I love it! I’m sure not the most artistic but makes me happy when I see it.

Okay first of all Jen, I WANT that snakeskin top! OMG'd you are working it. I love the gold jewelery you have on with it and that black bag. You were adorable for the Cubs game. I love the artwork, but I'm LOVING your sofa. I'm a big fan of grey and your sofa is fab. SO pretty! :)P.S. ~ I'm glad I found your page too! I really appreciate your sincere comments on my blog.http://sassyuptownchic.blogspot.com/SassyUptownChic xoxo Kim
I love your first look!gorgeous!
The top you are wearing in the first outfit is TDF!!!
You are such an artist! That painting totally brights up your living room! I never thought I'd see you dress down, thought you were always so elegant but even for the game you look so chic, love it!Cess O. <3 The Outfit Diaries
love the whole outfit. Oh and your living room is AMAZING!
Love the snake skin top!! you look good.http//meinmode.blogspot.com
you dear look gorgeous! I love the snake skin breezy top! It's so beautiful and your naked shoes are gorgeous!XoXoPlamihttp://fashion-thrill.blogspot.com
I love the greys and texture in your living room – and my personal take is that the Chick is probably better than some of the other fast food places out there, and if you've got a craving why fight it?
I really love your sofa! Can i ask where it's from? We just bought a new bed and I was this close to getting a grey velvet upholstered bed in similar style. We ended up getting a mid century style instead, mostly because it was a much better deal. Now I have my eye on your couch though!! And I love chick fil a!!
I´ve never been to Chicago, but it must be awesome!!Gorgeous trip!!XOXOhttp://somestylestories.blogspot.com
Aww, you're such a cute couple! And your hair looks fantastic in the first set of pix. Those soft waves are beautiful on you. I agree with you on sports… they aren't so exciting, but attending games is fun. The energy in the ballpark is invigorating.

I like the first outfit a lot. Very classy and gorgeous.I love Chick-fil-A too! But I don't eat carbs. So I always order the chicken stripes instead of the sandwiches! But yeah those are so yummy. ;)xoxo,Ling
