Winter Day Trip to Chicago


I would love to wear an outfit like this on a day trip to Chicago.  I'm only 55 minutes from the city and I should make the effort to get up there soon.  Layers are a necessity, so I would layer a couple pairs of socks, tights and wear a warm base layer.  I would choose a cape (as long as the temp is greater than 30) as outerwear because they are very comfortable and unrestrictive.  I  would probably carry and extra wrap scarf in my bag.  Winter Day Trip to Chicago

  2. How stylish and cute! You should definitely make the effort to go; you'll enjoy it more than you expect. That happens to me every time I visit NYC.

    1. Yes...lots of warm layers; Chicago is really bitter cold at this time of year.

      I love black and white/black and cream color scheme too. I could do my entire wardrobe in those two colors.

  5. That is a very smarty and stylish selection.. I especially love those Dr Martens-like boots. Polyvore IS heaps of fun, isn't it?

    1. Hope you have a great New Year too. I don't own a cape either, but I've been on the lookout for a long time. Hoping I will chance upon one in the thrift shops.

  9. I wish I lived that close to Chicago...I would probably go at least once a month. Your outfit here is very chic. I would probably add some sort of splash of color--red bag, colorful scarf or something--for moi.

    1. I would love to own this outfit, but I'm missing the cape. I think a splash of color would be beautiful too. I see hot pink!

  10. I love black and white looks - though I would need to be really, really warm to consider spending a day out walking around a city right now when it's literally freezing out!

    And in response to your comment, no fashion degree, just lots of hours spent blogging, I think!!
    Glad I was able to provide some inspiration, do let me know when you wear it!

    1. I agree; I would need to be super warm too and I don't know if that outfit would be warm enough. I think I would need more of a barrier from the gusty Chicago wind and the lakefront cold!

  11. Love all those pieces. Creme and black is one of my favorite color combinations

    1. Black and cream is my all time favorite combination. I would wear it every day if I could. They are great pieces aren't they? Most of them are way out of my budget!
