Over the holiday weekend, we headed to the Windy City to take in a concert, some deep-dish pizza, and coffee at the cutest café! I wanted to fit the late autumn vibes, so I packed my plaid coat… with the coolest new pair of boots I own by BED|STU from Zappos! They’re a little bit rustic, a little bit edgy, and they just look “cool”. I wore these boots for a full night of walking around Chicago, standing for a few hours at a concert, and they were super comfortable. Plus, I love the darker “rustic teak” look! I don’t have a single pair of boots that look like these, but they already go with so much in my closet.
Our trip to the city was super quick! We checked into the Hotel Lincoln (which was so fun and had the coolest vintage vibe) and the neighborhood is beautiful. The view of Lake Michigan on our drive in was just perfect. The blue water against the downtown skyline… ugh, my heart. We took an Uber to Chicago Music Exchange to play guitars for a while. After that, we went to Giordano’s to order a Chicago Classic deep-dish pizza. YUM. And we ended the night at Lincoln Hall to see The Paper Kites – they were so good! It was a whirlwind trip, but so worth it. I just wish we could have stayed a little longer!
But yeah, this outfit felt very fitting for the evening – rustic/vintage vibes of our hotel, edgy/vintage vibes of Chicago Music Exchange, and unique/edgy for a concert. I just feel overall more confident when my outfit fits the setting! I also love that BED|STU from Zappos boots are handmade and hand-dyed – with imperfections that make them super unique. No two pair are exactly the same! I was almost going to get the tan rustic color, but wanted to sort of step out of the box a little bit and try the teak rustic – and I’m so glad I did! Like I mentioned before, I don’t own any boots this color but they go with so much of my wardrobe. Burnt oranges, dark browns, olive greens, and all the earthy neutral colors I love.
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend… and a great start to the holiday season! This is such a fun month and I’m so excited for it. Be sure to check out BED|STU from Zappos! They have free (and super fast) shipping and the best customer service ever. Highly recommend; and the reviews are always helpful if you’re trying to figure out sizing. I ordered up a half size (which I always do with boots) and they fit perfectly. Happy shopping!
