Downtown Chi-town

Downtown Chicago yesterday was a blast with my friends, and I wish I could spend an entire week just exploring the city. We spent the majority of the day perusing the Michigan Avenue stores, including visiting Topshop and Zara (both stores I’ve never been to, considering the nearest ones are three hours away from me). Here’s the breakdown:

Dress: Lauren Conrad via Goodwill (polka-dot version here)
Flats: Steve Madden via TJ Maxx
Sweater: Lauren Ralph Lauren via Garage sale
Sunnies: Franco Sarto via Marshalls
Necklace: H&M
Bag: Mauizio Taiuti via Garage sale (similar here)

Yes, I’m recycling this dress for the second time this week. And yes, I’m not wearing what I thought I’d be wearing as I mentioned in yesterday’s post. But when you’re walking around the city in 90-degree weather, a dress does better than anything else keeping a girl cool. A short-sleeved sweater was all I needed to combat the too-chilly air-conditioned buildings.
