Chi Wish You Were Here

The title of this post is a pun, so that’s when you know that I feel accomplished.

This is ~sadly~ going to be my final Chicago post about my Spring Break adventures. So let’s explore the big city!

We walked the Magnificent Mile and hit all of my favorite places to shop, including TJ Maxx and Forever 21. Honestly, I am not sure what I would do without these stores in my life! I’m sure that you’ve seen where most of my outfits are from (because I tag them in every post), so it probably comes to no surprise that half my wardrobe is from those two spots.


We also visited the Rolex store to browse for funsies. Well, for me it was to dream of one day actually being able to afford a good as luxurious as those watches; for the moment being, I am just as broke as a college student can be.

“Take a picture of me with the flags in the background, because ‘Merica!”

Fun fact: “‘Merica” is one of my favorite words for reasons which I will probably never understand. I just say it constantly… you should see the notes I take in my U.S. history class!

Something one notices very quickly about Chicago is that the old-fashioned architecture blends in very well with the towering buildings of the urban cityscape. I particularly noticed that the city, despite its size and population, was very clean, which to me was a huge deal.


I was pleasantly surprised and very impressed, to say the least.

I mean, just look at those majestic buildings! I once pondered being an architect, but then I realized that involved being good with numbers and math… Yikes.

And now I am a communications major, so you see how that idea worked out.


I love being in the city! It makes for pictures as cool as the ones we took here.

Pier pressure brought me here (cue Navy Pier pun).

Signing out from the Windy City, which is even more spectacular at nighttime.
