WHAT TO WEAR:

  • Time of year is obviously factor here – huge coats and scarves in winter
  • Jeans, boots, sweaters – Chicago is fairly casual overall
  • Flat shoes or sneakers as there is a lot of walking to do!

WHAT TO DO:

  • Take photos in and around Agora – so inspiring
  • Enjoy high tea at the Langham

  • I am keen to visit Chitown in the summer and experience some fun on Lake Michigan so watch this space for some new adventures…

WHERE TO HANG:

  • Ralph Lauren Restaurant bar for cocktails and light snacks
  • Sawada for coffee and donuts – you must try the military one!
  • Bucktown Wicker Park area – boutiques, local bars and street art
  • Play pinball and other games at Barcade – late night is best!
  • Sports games – Cubs, Bulls, Blackhawks and now rugby! Yay!
