Aren't the leaves pretty? It was freezing. Like high of 50 all weekend. Was a nice little change from the heat we've had here though. We pretty much shopped and ate our way through the weekend. Tons of walking, so I have very little guilt over all the amazing food I shoveled into my mouth. Breakfasts at Toast and Nookies....... Some pizza from Lou Malnati's, snacks from the Wit's roof bar and Untitled, and the most amazing asian dinner with some bloggy friends at Sunda.
Recognize Alex and Liz? You all know my love for Alex, and she just got back from her honeymoon! Wedding recaps on her blog all week long... But it was my first time to meet Liz. What a sweetie. And her family has a place outside of Charleston... I see more dinners in our future.
As for the shopping, my kids made out like bandits. But frankly they needed tons of clothes, they're growing like weeds and the weather is changing. I did alright myself. A lot of tees and pants. And these high shine black skinnies I got from All Saints are my favorite.
Or maybe the Angel jeans that I got from Edith Hart are my favorite. Alex helped them with their interior design and I knew I had to stop in. Such a great boutique in Bucktown. Here I am with the owner, Morgan.
I kinda lived in my Anthropologie Lyra booties that I picked up. They're shimmery suede, comfy, and only $100. Great shoe. And I totally lived in my Veda leather jacket. Thank goodness I brought it! I also had dinner with an old friend that I hadn't seen in nearly 15 years. So bummed we didn't get a picture. It was great seeing you, Brenna!! Oh, and Jeanette also insisted that I do one touristy thing. Since we walked right by it, I obliged. The Bean.
Good weekend. Need to get up there again! I hope you all had a fun weekend, too.
