one skirt. two outfits.

hi friends!

I recently took a weekend trip to Chicago to visit one of my best friends, Lauren, and it was a BLAST. If you ever find yourself in Old Town, the California Benedict at Kanela is to dieeeeeeeeee for. Also... avoid Pickle Back shots at Bub City. They will do you in. 

If you're ballin' on a budget like me, you want to get the most out of the clothing you buy.   Buy staple items you can wear day or night that are neutral in color and I promise you will get so much more use out of the clothing you buy and save tons of money. 

Before the trip, I took a little bit of my own advice and  purchased this amazing raw hem denim skirt. So amazing, in fact, I wore it literally the entire trip (so much bang for my buck). Here's my take on this denim skirt from day to night! 


Meandering Old Town, Kanela for Brunch, Shopping on the Mag Mile. Peep the basket bag... how cute?!!?
