Boy Wonder and I have a few friends working & studying in chicago, so we’ve been meaning to make a trip out there to visit them for quite some time now! we finally pulled the trigger and booked our trip for the first weekend in october (and crossed our fingers for some not-too-humid/not-too-polar-vortex fall weather). one of my besties also came down for the weekend, and it was awesome to hang out with everyone and see the windy city.
I took a few too many photos in just under four days, so I’m splitting my chicago photos into two posts! this one will focus on sights, and the next will focus on food (duh). also, I should say thank you to kelly purkey for so many good recommendations (that I’ve been bookmarking for years now!).
<3 window seats. might’ve taken some hyperlapses while we were taxiing too.
bp bridge. unfortunately we couldn’t go all the way across because it was closed due to park renovations on the other side. still a stunner, gehry.
buckingham fountain for a lovely water display.
Boy Wonder & JJG were nice to humor me and my #fromwhereistand photos
tiffany dome @ the chicago cultural center. we might’ve gotten a bit lost trying to find this dome ;)
hid from the rain at the art institute.
in case you were wondering, the women’s restroom at the signature lounge has the very best view. who knew?
love the lights at the chicago theater.
“best offee e .” at heritage.
snuck in between an engagement shoot and two baby/family photo shoots for a photo.
seriously now. those blue skies! thanks for the great views, lincoln park.
typical. stay tuned for chicago eats next week!
