If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you already know I recently spent a long weekend eating my way around Chicago with a group of dear friends (food posts are coming, stay tuned my epicurean friends).  We traveled to the Windy City the last weekend of October, when the temperatures dropped into the 30's at night and it even snowed on Halloween!  I knew I needed to pack warm layers, but also wanted to style outfits that were feminine and blog-worthy.  This bright yellow wool coat fit the bill with its fitted shape, asymmetrical zipper, and warm shearling lining.  It is hard to see the rest of the outfit because I'm so bundled up, but underneath is a grey wool sweater, faux leather skater skirt, and a fur vest.  Tights, wedge booties, and my Koret New York clutch rounded out this outfit for a sunny but chilly touristy afternoon at Millenium Park and the Chicago Art Institute.  If this coat looks familiar, it's because it was featured once before about a year ago here.
