Fall on the Mag Mile
Prior to ma voyage a Provence, I have a few final stops to make on Chicago’s Mag Mile. After my return, I expect to find only winter coats and more fur-everything in preparation of winter’s lakefront chill. However, my plan is to cherish and prolong fall as long as possible while in Provence and the Cote d’Azur!
In anticipation of walking miles each day, I happened upon the perfect flat ankle booties by AllSaints Spitalfields. They remind me of something vintage, possibly worn by a chic orphan like Mme Chanel?! And, what makes my husband even happier is that due to them having shades of brown/black, I only need to pack one pair (of flat booties that is!). A few other fab finds along the way were Fendi chunky Mary Janes with red vavoom-heels and Cole Hann’s Air Whitley tall boot. I had the good practicality NOT to buy these due to the art of fete du shopping waiting for me in Europe.
Next stop, Bloomingdales, one of my regular haunts. I found a perfect pair of black Italian cut-out tights to add a bit of interest to a simple black dress or funky skirt. On the way out, my ever-wandering eyes saw a lil’ Michael Kors logo wristlet, so cute I am still trying to figure out which girlfriend may be the lucky receiptant of said nothingness. (I would find myself in the un-heated dog house if I didn’t mention my fav Assist. Mgr., Jennifer, at Michael Kors.)
Now, it is time to pack my treasures, including a full-sequined gold tunic by Gold Hawk (to wear with jeans and snake skin heels), black cherry Skyline jeans by Paige, a few go-to Bailey 44 tops, way to many scarves (very French), and various on-trend capes.
A tout a l’heure!
