There is nothing like Christmas in the city. One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is walk around different neighborhoods and scope out all of the Christmas lights and decorations. Up until recently, we’d been experiencing some pretty mild weather here in Chicago. After a light brunch at 3 Arts Cafe last week, my sister and I took advantage of the warmer temps to walk around the Gold Coast and check out the beautiful holiday decor. A thick sweater was all I needed!
I recently bought this cozy knit from J. Crew. It is the perfect winter sweater and I know it will come in handy for some holiday celebrations we’ve got coming up. I love how so many of their pieces can easily be dressed up or down – honestly so versatile for any occasion!
I definitely want to check out the Christkindlmarket next, and maybe go to get hot chocolate and then ice skate in Millennium Park as a possible date night with my husband. It’s always so fun to be around the buzz and smells of the Christmas season. What are your favorite holiday activities and traditions? Tell me in the comments below!
