#FromWhereIStand: Chicago Edition

Crazy Style Love


If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen that I spent this past Easter weekend in Chicago with my family.  My parents and I have a long standing tradition of traveling to the Windy City every year for Easter.  It’s always a fun weekend full of shopping, relaxing and eating.


When I was looking back at my photos from our trip, I realized that most of the pictures were of interesting textures, colors and signs, all on the ground.  One of my favorite Instagram hashtags is #fromwhereistand, and you’ve probably noticed that I tend to take a lot of those types of pics.  So I thought it would be fun to put them all together in one post and share them with you.  I hope you enjoy.

My reflection in a Chicago landmark, the Bean.

Such amazing colors and textures at the new Alice & Olivia store on the Magnificent Mile.  There is so much to look at in that store, that I only noticed this amazing light fixture in the reflection of this mirrored table when I went to take this photo.

Heading inside one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago, Joe’s Seafood.  A must try if you are visiting the City.

Pretty Anthropologie sunglasses I picked up while shopping.  I also bought a similar pair in pink.

    Is it weird that I’m having rug/floor envy? Because I am!
