Chic Chicago: Exploring With The Everygirl


After kicking off my American book tour in NYC, I headed to Chicago to hang out with two dear blogging friends of mine, Danielle and Alaina of The Everygirl. The girls were kind enough to spend their Sunday giving me a truly fantastic tour of their beautiful city. As you can see we had a blast from start to finish – giggles were definitely the name of the game; can you tell?! I discovered that the three main themes of Chicago are food, sport and architecture, all of which joined forces in my latest city guide post on West Elm’s blog – be sure to check it out for the full lowdown on our adventures in The Windy City. I wore my favourite pair of brand new trousers and even had the chance to meet Danielle’s adorable dog, Buddy! If you happen to be in LA tomorrow (Thursday May 8th) do join Jonathan Lo and I at the next #makeyousmilestyle party at west elm LA.
