I decided to take a little impromptu mid-week break to go play in Chicago for a few days. I dined, sipped, and shopped my way through the city, and took advantage of one beautiful afternoon for a scenic run along the lake. Lush, bright-colored tulips lined Michigan Avenue, where I headed Thursday night to stop by Banana Republic to say hello to the darling Anna of See Jane, as she was playing hostess at the Banana Republic after 5 event. There I also met Audrey of A Lovely Escape, and somehow I escaped the store without buying a beautiful pink sequin dress that was calling my name. Between this fun event, happy hour with friends over margaritas, a late night champagne bar, and my first visit to Millennium Park, I’d say the entire little trip was a lovely little escape.
