What I'm Wearing in the Windy City - Among Other Things (The Blog)

What I’m Wearing in the Windy City

It’s my last day in the Windy City (and holy shit, has it been windy), and I vastly underestimated how much time I’d be spending offline over the past few days.


Striped t-shirt: Trina Turk (here in tank top form) / Mid-rise jeans: Express (more styles here) / Canvas flats: Soludos via Zappos (more colors here) / Striped weekender bag: c/o Talbots (under $70)

Apologies for the lack of new content around here this week; but for once, I thought I’d take my own advice, enjoy some time offline and just pop in to say hello today.


Man, I really under-packed for how cold it is here. It’s, like, winter. (Well, okay, 45 degrees and breezy, but still.)

Thankfully, I packed a few layerable items in my striped weekender bag — and I’ve been wearing them on repeat all week: A vintage-style tee under a cozy cardigan, stain-resistant white denim and my new adidas sneakers (as shown below).

I’ve been talking about this Rebecca Minkoff backpack for awhile — and I finally bit the bullet. It fits a lot more than I thought, so buyer’s remorse begone! It also comes in nylon — which has a neon interior —  but since I already have a nylon backpack, I went with the leather.

*In this post (and my bag):

Striped cardigan: Romwe (yes, it’s a legit website)
Crop tee: Madewell (comes in six colors + on sale)
Sneakers: adidas Originals shoes
White jeans: Joe’s Jeans spotless denim collection

Leather backpack: Rebecca Minkoff MAB (also available in nylon)
Necklace: BaubleBar coordinates pendant



Lastly, here’s a few posts/pieces of content I’m working on to publish over the next few weeks. If you have questions or thoughts about things you want to read about in each, let me know:

  • My weight loss journey, which is somewhat of a continuation of this post.
  • An update about SoulCycle — what it is and why you should try it.

Back to you tomorrow with a fresh set of links I’ve been loving over the last week.
