I wore the outfit below out to dinner and drinks on Saturday night in Chicago. We went to dinner at Lou Malnati's, which is supposed to be the best Chicago style pizza in the city. I'll let you Chicagoans fight about that one. I'm an East Coast girl through and through so this was quite the experience for me. I mean, I'm from the pizza belt! Overall impression: this was not pizza. It made for a hearty meal, but it definitely wasn't pizza. This is pizza :)
Anyway, after "pizza", my BF and I kind of wandered around trying to find some bar to go to. He lives in an area of town that isn't known for its nightlife so we weren't sure where to go. We ended up venturing to Public House because it's a chain and the one in Philly is fun. Then we wandered down the street and found a street that seemed pretty bustling with a bunch of bars. We ended up going to El Hefe for the rest of the night. Their website classifies themselves as a nightclub but to me this was just a bar.. but maybe this is what "clubs" are like in Chicago? - not sure. I noticed nobody really fist pumps in Chicago. What's up with that??!?
About my outfit: I hope I don't look like "Halloween" in these pics, lol. Wearing orange and black together can be a recipe for disaster but hopefully this is not one. I missed this jacket for many months because it's so hot in Miami and I was glad to be able to wear it in Chicago (even though it was definitely hotter than I thought it would be at night). Also, FYI, there were about 15 GIANT SPIDERS hanging all around me during these photos. It took everything I had to stay out there for 1 minute to take the pics. BF needs to buy some Raid or something! So gross!
