All Basic in Chicago

Comfort was my main concern for this vacation (considering the pregnancy). I simply wanted to be able to walk comfortably and not feel out of breath, or care about the shoes hurting my feet or not supporting my back and legs with enough cushion etc. Hence, I packed my reliable white pair of shoes. They are trendy, they go with everything, and kept my feet (and back) happy.
Being 7 months pregnant has literally compelled me to dig my closet for loose fitting blouses and swinging dresses. This dress is an year old (or more I guess), and was perfect for my vacation day out. The weather in Chicago was perfect. No humidity, no heat, just perfect Fall weather. The mornings and evenings were a little chilly and the days were not that warm – just perfect. It reminded me of my Boston days. I miss that. Le Sigh..!!
Oh and I finally entered my third trimester (feels like an achievement to be honest!). The baby has become more active and keeps kicking all-the-time. Sometimes the kicks are so strong, they make my belly jump! Specially, when I sit down to eat, I constantly feel the kicks. It feels quite unusual (rather weird) when you are eating and something someone is kicking and moving inside your belly. Oh the joys of pregnancy..!! It never ends.

Neon Pink Shirt

I only packed this one pair of jeans for my trip (and this sweatshirt, a dress and this shirt – that’s it… oh plus tons of skin products!!! ). This jeans is almost four years old. It was just a weekend trip and I knew I was going to do a lot of walking, so you see no heels, nothing extraordinaire, no shenanigans! Give me shoes over flats any day and I’m a happy girl.

One chance and I was back at the King Street – my favorite street (in Alexandria) that ends with a river. After travelling to so many places, I can say – If given a chance, I would love to get settled in this city! Actually I can never get tired of sight-seeing in this city. I love everything here – Everything. I miss living here.. now I am mere a ‘weekend visitor’! Ughh.. sigh….
