The Steel Gardens of Chicago
I’ve often thought of Chicago as a sort of garden of steel, with the giant buildings like flowers and the river like a little stream that waters it all. Walking along to Buckingham Fountain with my parents and sister I ran into an ACTUAL steel garden! I’d somehow never seen it before and my sister and I were both totally taken with it. Thus, these photos.
These pictures are from last Friday, when I spent a wonderful day downtown with my family. We saw and did so many things that I really love about Chicago- the Bean, the Art Institute, the river, yummy Jewish diner food. This dress was the perfect piece to wear to do all those things on such a hot day. It’s fast becoming one of my favorite dresses, which is saying a lot, given how many of them I own. :)
Also awesome was the lady below in the black and white get-up. I hope when I’m older I’m as cool dressin’ as she is!
