With Christmas right around the corner, Chicago has officially transformed into a magical winter wonderland. As the Magnificent Mile sparkles, Santa’s little elf’s whip up hot cocoa at the Christkindlmarket, and tourist rush to the Millennium Park ice-skating rink to spread holiday cheer. Us Chicagoans, couldn’t help but to throw on an extra layer or two to face the cold, in order to enjoy the long lasting holiday traditions that Chicago has to offer.
Therefore, this past weekend, my boyfriend Jerid and I joined in on the fun and took a trip to the Christkindlmarket to eat our body weight in delicious German food. From stuffed gourmet pretzels, homemade peanuts, funky baked cheese, and of course we topped it all off with a cup of hot chocolate. After, we decided to walk it off to see the Millennium Park Christmas tree and to do last minute shopping on the Mag Mile. It is the chockfull days of running around with the people you love, to realize the true beauty of this time of year. So, if you are ever in the Chicagoland area or planning a trip to the windy city anytime soon, I have created a Chicago holiday checklist for you!

What I’m Wearing
It was a warm weekend in Chicago. Therefore, I took advantage of my red faux fur coat from Ms. Catwalk, my comfortable Good American blue jeans, and for a little bit more flair, I included my black thigh high boots from Steve Madden.
