Shopping on Michigan Ave



So this is something I wore last weekend on my birthday to go shopping on Michigan Ave in Chicago.. one of my all time favorite places. There's something about the city of Chicago that I just love.. and it's not just Topshop. Obviously these photos weren't taken on mich. ave. because let's be honest, I didn't want 10,000 people staring and glaring at me for taking photos. 

It was pretty cold so obviously needed to layer up for walking around by the lakefront. A lot of people seem to think that Boho is more of a summer style.. which I tend to agree with.. but I think this is what I would call a pretty good example of a way to do Boho in the winter! It's more about layering and texture. I wore some cute polka dot tights, tawny leather boots, an olive pleated skirt from Nasty Gal (obsessed with this skirt), a cropped sweater and some boho accessories. We also can't forget about my sheep parka. I specifically loved the colors & textures in this look.. I get so bored with winter layering sometimes I have to jazz it up a bit! Pray for springtime soon please!

Coat: BCBG
Skirt: Nasty Gal
Boots: Madewell
Tights: BCBG
Bag: Target
