Good Morning! It's great to be back after a week of staycationing with my mom in town in my favorite American city. It's funny, I enjoy being on vacation in Chicago just as much as traveling somewhere new! There is just so much to do here and it was great to finally take advantage of things I've always wanted to see. Now I get to share it all with you, and Easter Sunday was one of my favorites.
We started this gorgeous sunny day at church, with Easter morning service and then a long walk along the water. I love having spectacular city views so prominently strewn along the lakeshore with a blend of both nautical and metropolis settings. I wanted to wear something very Spring to match the warm weather, but also sophisticated enough for indoor dining and exploring Chicago architecture. The Voodoo Vixen peachy pink gingham Chelsea dress could not have been a more perfect choice... it was more than appropriate for all occasions throughout the day. It is sexy yet elegant with it's high neck, cinched waist, and feminine gingham pattern.
After a long stroll by the water, we then explored the famous Chicago Marquis Theater... my favorite part of the day! An original "movie palace" and one of the first in the US, the $4 million Chicago Theater was built in 1921 in French Baroque style and modeled after Paris' Arc de Tromphe and Royal Chapel of Versailles. The vertical sign "Chicago" of 6 stories high, is one of the few signs still in existence today, and the marquee began with announcements of some of the first silent films ever to reach the big screen. As I recently shared the marquee sign with you in this post, I'm excited to take you inside the Chicago Theater today to experience it's glamorous grandeur and rich history combined with a day in the Spring sun!
