Librarian Style: Eloquii Conversational Print Blouse and Flounce Pencil Skirt

Librarian Style: Eloquii Conversational Print Blouse and Flounce Pencil Skirt

I have a love affair with books, but I’ve been neglecting them lately in favor of podcasts and magazines and TV, of course. But as soon as I stepped foot in the new Eloquii store at The Shops at Northbridge (the Nordstrom Building in downtown Chicag0), and put this look together, I knew I had to get back in the library as quick as possible! I mean, this Conversational Blouse in Mushroom Print and pink Flounce Pencil Skirt gave me all of the librarian style and book lover vibes that I’ve been missing since so many of the bookstores closed years ago!

Top 10 Things To Do In Chicago With Out of Town Guests

Top 10 Things To Do In Chicago With Out of Town Guests

Chicago is such an amazing city! There’s so much that you can see and do, so when friends and family come to visit, it can be a little overwhelming to pick and choose. Well, if you’re wondering what to do in Chicago when you have out of town guests, here’s my fool-proof list of the Top 10 Things To Do in Chicago!

Things to Do in Chicago: Odyssey Dinner Cruise

Things to Do in Chicago: Odyssey Dinner Cruise

If you’re looking for things to do in Chicago, look no further than an Odyssey Dinner Cruise that leaves from Navy Pier! It’s such a lovely experience to share with your out of town guests or your local friends, especially if you’re celebrating a special occasion. An Odyssey Dinner Cruise is a perfect night out – complete with a fantastic view of the city from Lake Michigan, a delicious dinner and dancing! I recently hosted a dinner party on the Odyssey for my family when they were here visiting, and I thought I’d share moments of that magical night with you!

Things to Do in Chicago: 360 Chicago Observation Deck

Things to Do in Chicago: 360 Chicago Observation Deck

Now that I live in Chicago and have out of town guests – I tell them to skip the Willis Tower and head straight to the 360 Chicago Observation Deck on the 94th floor of the John Hancock building. The 360 Chicago view CANNOT be beat and it’s so convenient to get to (it’s right on Michigan Ave). When my family recently visited me, I organized a trip to 360 Chicago. Here are the highlights from our visit!

Chicago Gift Baskets – A Perfect Way to Welcome Visitors to Chicago

Chicago Gift Baskets – A Perfect Way to Welcome Visitors to Chicago

When out of town guests come to visit me in Chicago, I always like to give them a gift basket of thoughtful gifts and treats. It’s such a nice way to welcome them to the city and make them feel special! Usually, I rush around the city trying to assemble a basket full of items that would appeal to my guests and relate to Chicago in some way. But those days are now over! I recently discovered the locally owned and operated “Send Them Chicago” gift basket company and had a chance to check out their “Windy City Welcome” offering. It is so cute, and my out of town guests were thrilled with the thoughtful Chicago-themed gift!
