Instagram Week: All Kinds Of Heights

June 18, 2012

This last week was a whirlwind!  I got a last-minute job interview so had to fly across the country- which meant running downtown for drinks, friend time and shopping on a mission (oh darn!).

After a busy week, I finally took the weekend to enjoy the city, roam around and go for long walks at the zoo and lake side!

Chicago summer fashion

Last minute shopping for business attire  and other fineries by Water Tower in Downtown Chicago / Shoe distractions at ALDO, so sparkly!  I love the cutout on the inner sides.  /  Piña Coladas with friends at the top of the Hancock Tower  /  My kind of bus… “Inner Drive!”



Chicago summer fashion

The gorgeous evening view from the top of the Hancock Center which is my favorite spot in Chicago!  If you’re ever in Chicago, meet me at the Signature room!



Young Professional

I finally scored a pinstripe blazer with polka dot cuffs & navy khakis for my interview…and splurged on a new Betsey Johnson watch from Nordstrom Rack!    I would seriously wear this outfit any time, not just for business get togethers!



Lincoln Park Zoo

On Saturday I went on a date (I know, right?)  to the Lincoln Park Zoo to enjoy the sights of the city, the animals and of course- flamingos (my favorite!)  The zoo is free (yay for frugality!) and as long as you can cope with humidity, it’s a great way to spend a summer day!



Chicago Summer

After roaming around the city, we ended up at the beach to cool off with a nice cold Corona light and enjoy the view of the sky line from the lake.  The zoo & parks in Chicago are gorgeous in the summer!

So, what have you been doing to enjoy summer?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your watch! I saw it in one of your recent videos and I was going to ask where you got it. It’s such a cute girlie accent piece to any outfit.

  3. Your hair is straight out of a Pantene commercial.

  4. You look amazeballs and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this post is set up. It says so much with so fewer words than I would have. Your site looks great too. You’re so darn talented. I hope this interview is for something you want to do. Best wishes!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
