On To Morning Stars

Monday, July 30, 2012

Our day trip to Chicago was ridiculous and nonsensical and beautiful. We left at 5:00 AM on Friday, stopped thirty minutes outside of Chicago and got what I like to refer to as "rest stop chic". Once inside the city we headed straight for the Pick Me Up Cafe. Which is always so good! I've never been to Chicago without stopping there. We traveled every side of the city.

Shopped until we couldn't walk and took lovely little train rides all over. I'm obsessed with public transit and the map app on the iPhone makes it so easy to navigate the CTA. I went to TopShop for the second time and oh my golly, that place is basically heaven. Three stories of beautiful expensive heaven. The main attraction was Kuma's Korner. The death metal burger joint and I'm drooling thinking about it. We even went to the aquarium! It was less awesome than Baltimore, but about $15 cheaper than Cleveland's so it was a win.

We got home at seven am and I slept until two and didn't move much the rest of the day. It was beautiful.

Oh! I keep forgetting, this weekend, I'll be participating in a fashion blogging panel in downtown Cleveland. If you live in the area, you should totally check it out. There's a discount code on the side bar and you can purchase tickets here.
