when i moved to chicago four years ago i was fortunate enough to get a job working in the marketing department at an architecture firm in the heart of downtown. the position quickly opened my eyes to the overwhelming amount of beautiful architecture in the city.
Chicago is FULL of gorgeous buildings with their own rich histories. The Wrigley Building, The Spertus, The John Hancock Center, aqua, The Carbine & Carbon building (hard rock hotel), and The Rookery are a few of my favorites.
Architecture Aside---Chicago has stolen my heart with the abundance of green space. i adore summer trips to the beach and navy pier, concerts in downtown millennium park, and neighborhood farmers markets. the city in the summer with all of it's diversity and history really is second to none (i had to throw in chicago's fancy new tourist slogan).
thank you to meagan for inviting me to guest post. the city of the big shoulders will miss you but now you can play tourist when you visit! stop by cornflake dreams anytime for even more fashion, design and travel inspiration from a chicago girl.
if you have visited chicago what are your favorite things about the city?
*a small disclaimer to keep meagan from getting upset she is moving} remember:: chicago has seemingly endless winters (even blizzards!), michigan avenue pedestrian traffic that will give you walker-rage. and crazy drivers who love their horn... remember the good. and look forward to your new beautiful home!
