Chicago in 1 Day! | Travel Vlog Summer 2016

So happy I got to finally upload our 1 day in Chicago Vlog! Over this past Labor Day weekend my husband and I went to visit his family in Rockford, IL! I planned for us to drive up to Chicago which is about 45 minutes away and spend the day there. I am originally from Chicago but have not done the "tourist" thing since I was a little girl so I was so excited to be able to be a "tourist" with my hubby!

Before going I looked up all the places we wanted to visit and made a plan about how to experience it all in 1 day. What made this all happen smoothly and easily with little to no walking was the Chicago Trolley Hop on Hop off Bus ! We loved touring the city a top of this double decker bus and having a tour guide tell about the cities rich history. Keep in mind some tour guides are great and others not so much! However, all in all this was the best decision ever! This bus stops off at all the major sites in Chicago and comes around every 20 minutes and you can simply Hop on and off as you please!
Another aspect you have to think about is parking! We were blessed to find parking for $19 for the whole day by prepaying and using this site which I highly recommend: Chicago Best Parking

Pre Fall Style Haul 2016 !!

Hey Loves!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons...wait..I say that about all the seasons! Lol..truth is I love each season individually! I love the fashion and styles you can wear all year round.  And when Summer transitions to Fall is great because the weather is just perfect! While in Miami a few weeks ago I went shopping and picked up some great transition pieces to Fall. I filmed a Haul video + Try On on my YouTube Channel for you all to see. Click below to watch!
