Hello, all you Lovelies! If you follow me on Instagram (@megricks) or on Snapchat (megricks) you saw that I was in Chicago just a few weeks ago with my momma. I hinted that “there were exciting things in the works” happening down there AND there were. I was actually down there for a dance audition I’ve been dreaming of since I was 9. The audition went really really well and I felt super good about it, but we won’t know anything for a few more months.. keep your fingers crossed. Anyways, we had never been to Chicago before so it was a whole new adventure. We LOVED it. We walked pretty much everywhere, shopped till we dropped down Michigan Avenue (also known as The Magnificent Mile), ate lots of GOOD food (we are total foodies), and enjoyed the most amazing weather (BONUS). Some of my fave stores were, Bloomingdales along with their unreal fro yo via Orange Carrot, Banana Republic, A GORGEOUS Nordstrom — it was honestly so beautiful, Zara, and a Ginormous Burberry (truly a work of art). Our fave Restaurants, thanks to some amazing recommendations were, Girl and the Goat (reserve early, it’s unreal), RPM Italian, and Lou Malnatis Pizzeria. We enjoyed some amazing art and museums as well, and really just had so much fun being together, my Mom is my very best friend. I love her dearly. And since everyone keeps asking me, “where to next?” — you’ll just have to wait and see 😉 However, the point to all of this is that I found this sweater in Chicago at Banana Republic and I’m obsessed, plus it’s on sale with additional 40% off. It is the coziest ever which makes me the happiest ever (ha).
Thanks for stopping by and for anyone who gave us the above recommendations, Thank you!
