Midwest Jewel

August 6, 2014






We are all so happy to be back home and have been laying low. I have been slowly checking things off my list, organizing and continue to think about our amazing time in the Midwest Jewel.

Last week, Nancy and I ran around scouting locations that scream “Chicago!” Nothing speaks louder in the city than the Willis Tower (formerly and forever in my heart-The Sears Tower). I put together this outfit that depicts this landmark: casual yet classic, strong and feminine. You see her there in the background? Isn’t she a beauty?!?

When I drive away from home, it is the last thing I look for. It is always gleaming against a beautiful blue summer sky. The Midwest Jewel is sorrounded by diamonds…and this one is the brightest of them all.

Do you feel a connection to a certain building? I also love the Chrysler Building here in NYC. Stunning.

    Chicago’s my hometown too! I now reside in Austin, TX, so whenever I go visit, I never feel back home until I’ve spotted the Sears Tower in the skyline. Love that city!

      You know, those Banana shoes are about 3 years old! I wore them once the first summer. Didn’t wear them at all last summer and wore them a lot this summer! Now that the boys are easier to manage (they all walk and I don’t have to carry the little one as much!!!!), it’s SO much easier! LOL Thanks, Nina! xoxo
