Bright Tourist

My anecdote to staying fashionable and comfy while walking a gazillion miles in the 90 degree weather of Chicago was 1) bright clothing 2) sheer sleeveless tops 3) printed shorts 4) gladiator sandalsYou will also notice that I am carrying around a useless jean jacket (boo!) From this I learned: if the forecast says high 90's, you better believe it and leave the jacket at home!

On this day, we went sightseeing: Buckingham Fountain, Millenium Park (home of the Bean), the 95th floor of the John Hancock building, Architecture Tour in the river, and shopping!! I had to take advantage of Zara since we don't have one in San Diego... yet.  I had such a great time, and for that I have to thank my bff Sarai for being an amazing hostess and having that over-planner mentality that is very efficient! I also included a bonus outfit where I wore the same top out to the rooftop called "Roof Top" (so creative!) at The Wit, then the bar at the top of the Trump Building and ending the night at the Hubbard Inn. Hope you like it :)

  4. I absolutely adore your outfit! I love the top and those shorts -- it makes me want to go to Target! Haha! Love the bright gladiators, too! I love Chicago. My husband is from there, so I used to spend summers there and boy - is it hot, complete opposite of their winter, which is too cold. HAHA! Anyway, love the day time and night time changes in the outfit. :) Take care!

  18. Your pictures really express how much fun you had in Chi town. Thanks sharing with us. Also love that you had a morning/night look with your F21. It's true that with different accessories you can make a piece look very different.

  21. You look soo stylish Pau and I love how you went with bright shades (plus your style tips for Chicago in the summer are perfect) I was there the same time a few years ago and I remember it was so humid, I went to a lot of the same places you did like the classic Chicago sign. You're doing a great job as a fashion blogger/tourist there.
