Outfits of the Week

Last week I sat in meetings all day and this week I had long hours trying to make up for the week before. It was so tempting to throw on leggings and sweaters but that honestly just makes me more tired. I never could wear pajamas to class for that reason. I just get too comfortable to focus on anything. Is that just me?









Happy Halloween by the way! I can't wait to see everyones costumes!

Happy, Happy Hour

A few months ago, I was told you know you're an adult when you start brunching a lot. While I love brunch, I have to disagree. You know you're an adult when you start attending happy hour. It's quickly become my new favorite outing activity. I've been making the rounds downtown after work and have a few favorite go to places but last week I tried some place new. Enolo is a wine bar downtown on Clark. I heard they had amazing wine flights and, honestly, is there anything better than wine flights? 




Part of the reason I loved it so much was walking in and not knowing anything about it. The inside is by by far the coolest restaurant interior I have ever seen. I don't want to share more than a few snaps with you because I want you to go and see it yourself. 



It's a great place to go and chat with the girls with a large glass of wine after a long day at work.

Central Park Is Nice But. . .

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across the greatest article that Buzzfeed has ever created. After sending it around to almost everyone I knew, both in Chi-Town and not, I bookmarked it for later. I was going through it again a few days ago and realized that one of the main places that was mentioned was Millennium Park and, despite having lived here for a good few months, I haven't been to the park in almost two years. When I woke up on Saturday (can we talk about how warm and perfect this weekend was?) I wanted to spend the whole day outside and knew just where to go. 


























I know everyone said there's nothing like Chicago in the summer but I have to say, I haven't seen anything quite as great as Chicago in the fall too. Oh and Buzzfeed was right, Central Park is nice but it has nothing on Millennium Park!

Old Lady Halloween

Do you have a friend that's a ying to your yang? One who, when you come home tipsy and yelling that you have to have cupcake right that second, calmly puts away the shoes you threw in the room so you can enjoy your sweets in peace? Don't lie to me! I know you do. Well, mine is Watson. That's not her real name. It's what I've called her for the past four years since she is the Watson to my Sherlock. Nothing can describe our friendship better than our planning for Halloween. We went back and forth for weeks of where we should go, what we should do, who we should be, until it ended in a text argument over who got to be Wednesday Adams :
"YOU DON'T HAVE THE HAIR!"
"YOU DON'T HAVE THE HAIR EITHER! I'm only going out because I love you" 
"Thank God! Sushi and Halloween movie night?" 
"YES!"











So there you have it. My first Halloween in the city will not be spent surrounded by drunken football players, Dracula and sexy nurses (don't even get me started on that one) but with my slightly calmer, even tempered other half, most likely solving crimes (like why two-buck-chuck stoppers are so difficult), eating sushi and quoting every second of hocus pocus (and singing along, obviously). Besides, I had a pretty great costume last year and there's no way I could top it this year. 


If anyone has any Halloween movie or treat suggestions, let me know! I've already requested Hocus Pocus and Beetlejuice.
