This is What a California Girl in Chicago Looks Like

I’m in Chicago!  It feels weird to be here since I’ve been planning my styling weekend at Trunk Club for what feels like forever!   It didn’t feel like it would ever happen!  So far I must say I really love this city!  We’ve been walking all over the place getting the tour from our good friends that moved here almost a year ago.  We’ve totally lucked out at this point weather wise too.  Everyone in San Diego looked at us like we were nuts to go to Chicago in the winter but it really hasn’t been too bad.  I mean, I’ve been pretty bundled so really I have no excuse to complain about not being warm!  It snowed a few inches the first day while I was at Trunk Club and it felt like I was living in a beautiful snow globe!!  I know the novelty of snow has worn off for most of you people that live in snow on a regular basis but I just absolutely love it while I’m on vacation.

My absolute essentials for cold weather are ear muffs and long scarves.  I hate how my ears and chin feel when they get too cold.  Those are the first items I pack in my carry on so I can whip them out easily when we are leaving the airport.  Otherwise, having a nice thick wool coat that hits almost at my ankles has been a life saver in windy moments.
