When I think of the fact I’ve gotten away with two WWW posts in December WITHOUT A COAT, I can’t help but feel like the luckiest girl in the world (along with every other Chicagoan). And no, this isn’t one of those situations where you see a blogger in a short sleeveless dress and open toe shoes with a field of snow in the background…I actually try to keep my outfits somewhat practical. And what’s more practical than black on black??
It’s October. I wore a tank top and even took my jacket off the other day…AND IT WAS GLORIOUS. Chicago, it’s like I don’t even know you anymore…but I am loving this new side of you.
Or as we’d say on AIM circa 2001 — BaCk 2 SkEwL kEwL. Whether you’re still in school, still paying for school although you’re no longer in school or just want to feel a little nostalgic for second / have an excuse to go shopping, then listen up.

Temperatures creeped up, we got to 75 on Monday (I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many happy people on a Monday) and now it looks like we’re going to stay in the 40s for quite a while. With these we’re so damn close to spring temps, what on EARTH are we supposed to wear? Here’s an idea…
