CHICAGO IS COLDER THAN CHATTANOOGA

You might be thinking, “No shit Sherlock” but its a real problem for a girl like me. Living in Chattanooga these last 7 years I absolutely love our seasons here.

I do however have a hard time transitioning through the seasons. When fall comes I LOVE layering but I often find I am cold in the evenings and burning up during the day. It takes me a minute to get into the swing of things! Then when our winter hits it takes me a few weeks to really get used to bundling up. When the cold weather starts to get warm I have a hard time ditching my layers. It seems once I get the hang of dressing for 100 degree weather it changes again.

I knew Chicago would be freezing even it was moderate because I am a total wimp. So rather than pack a bunch of awesome outfits and really indulge in the big city swank I know I have deep inside. I opted to be warm. That means a bag full of my warmest dark clothing. I spent 4 days just wearing everything I brought. Fine by me y’all.

Katelynd being a seasoned pro seems to look cute and dress warm… I felt more like a ball of fabric.

She warned me they had a hole in them but I really didn’t notice it until we started taking pictures. So I was essentially wearing socks with sandals. Oh yes! And my camera bag worked great for the city. I carried my camera body, 24 mm lens, wallet, phone and some extras around with me! Its made by THEIT and I am in love with it.  IMG_7367 IMG_7377 IMG_7381 IMG_7382 IMG_7384 IMG_7385 IMG_7388 IMG_7390 IMG_7391 IMG_7399 IMG_7404 IMG_7413 IMG_7414 IMG_7415  Chicago did me well because it holds my heart but all you divas dying for the big city are totally nuts in my opinion!

Cheers to transitions no matter how awkward they may be.
