I Heart Chicago

The weekend before Christmas my mom and I took our annual Mother-daughter-trip. This year we decided to go to Chicago. She spend a week with me in Michigan (since I still had to work) and then we took a train to Chicago :) I fell in love with that city!! Chicago is magical during the holidays!!! There are Christmas lights everywhere and I took pictures with at least 5 Christmas trees (a new personal record!)

The outfits I planned for my Chicago trip had to be practical, yet stylish...also they had to be very warm :) Layer and accessories were the key for dressing that weekend.


Meeting, work, and trying to stay warm...fur vest was a must! :)

Beautiful downtown Lansing :)

Early train ride and our first full day in Chicago, I decided on a button up layered under this wonderful J.Crew reindeer sweater!

Day two of our Chicago trip, it was one of the coldest days of the weekend so I opted for a red turtle neck J.Crew sweater and leggings.

Our last day in Chicago and a train ride back to Michigan! Sunday was the warmest (warm is a relative term since it was high 40 degrees) day of the weekend so i was able to wear a lighter sweater and a vest. Mixing patterns and a statement necklace made the outfit.
