Wine Down Wednesday

12:07 PM

We’ve made it over the hump this week - and as a reward, we all deserve a glass of wine! At least that’s my philosophy.

Many of you know that I started back in the office of my full time job, which I must say - has really been quite pleasant. I thought getting up early everyday, taking a train into the city and working within an office again was going to be a tough adjustment, but so far so good! I love my coworkers, the train is super simple (and quick!) and the weather has been fairly decent. Although I hear there is a chance of rain tomorrow, so maybe I’ll recant the latter :)

One thing I have noticed about working in the city, is there is a lot of BLACK clothing! Don’t get me wrong, I love black…uber flattering and super chic, but come on Chicago - spruce it up a little! I stood out like a sore thumb in this ultra cozy, blazer inspired powder blue coat today. And while I don’t mind standing out (if it’s for all the right reasons of course), even I was a little uncomfortable in the masses of business black. Nevertheless, I at least managed to score some points with the black fitted pants and boots. 

Are you still dressing for Winter in head to toe black?! Or have you started implementing pastels and color into the work week? Either way, I’d love to know what you consider city chic!
