Chicago Casual: Love & Jacquard Pattern

Hey everyone! I wore this outfit during Chicago weekend with degrees in the 20’s and wind chills below “too freezing cold”. As you know, I am a sucker for anything “Love” as seen here, here and plenty here. Maybe it’s because I grew up outside the city of Brotherly Love – who knows. So when I was in Philly for CNY, I stopped into a F21 store near me with one of my sisters and this sweater caught my eye.

Also, when I was packing for Chicago’s weather, I looked into my closet for the thickest, warmest scarf to bring along with me and this one was a no-brainer for sure, also worn here.  First time my eyes laid on the scarf was on my friend, Wendy and absolutely love the uniqueness of it.  I mean, you definitely don’t see something like it every day and this scarf instantly brings such texture to an outfit.
