Beautiful Chicago

My husband and I took an architectural tour of Chicago this weekend and was it beautiful!  Gorgeous weather, stunning buildings, and the perfect way to tour Chicago by water.  I definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting and living in Chicago.









For those interested in the tour, we booked it through  It was a beautiful way to see the city for a hour and a half.  After the tour, my husband and I went to one of my favorite places to eat 🙂 Chick-Fil-A.  All I need is a spicy chicken sandwich, some nuggets and a milkshake and I’m so happy!

For those that entered my giveaway, thank you!  I’ll contact and post the winners by the end of the week.
My sister and I are getting ready for the holiday season with our jewelry line.  If you are a planner and love a deal our style steal of the week is a perfect opportunity to buy beautiful jewelry at a great price!!

In purple, pink or sapphire, it’s the perfect gift for you or someone else for over 50% off!!

    I love literally five hours away from Chicago and have never been there. I suck. I love Aurora, which is a suburb of Chicago. But I have never gone all the way to Chi-town. I hate myself. @GlamKitten88

    Jen, I have never been to Chicago but have heard that the shopping, food and architecture was amazing. It's time to dump the kids off at grandma's and head on over there 🙂 I love your look by the way, even though it's October you pulled off a great summer look 🙂

    Love that beautiful dress on you- what great colors! And when the weather cools down I think it'll be perfect with tights, boots, and a cardigan as well!

    @AnonymousHi! I got them at Scoop last year. The brand is called Cataner. They sell the brand consistently, not sure if they have it anymore.
