My Chicago Packing List

Mar 10, 2022

Good morning and happy THURSDAY!

This week has flown by and I didn’t even realize we were traveling today till yesterday afternoon. I think I lost track of what day it was and it’s been a minute since we left town on a Thursday so I was thrown off. Anyhow, we are so excited to sneak away to Chicago for the weekend with our friends. I know we moved 3 years ago but it honestly feels like we just left and I have big plans to hit all my favorite food spots and get some shopping in. 

While Zahra is napping I thought I would pack and put together this post as I go. It helps me pare down my things, organize a bit better and have everything in one spot for you all! 



Pistola Black Jeans (more Pistola here) – such a great denim find and on sale under $100! Run TTS but more stretch than my AGolde pair so size down if in between. 


AGolde Riley Jean – you all know this is my go-to jean and I go nowhere without it. Run TTS, will stretch some over time but not inherently stretchy. 


Zella Joggers – another OG fav I don’t travel without! I wear these multiple times a week and travel in them everytime, runs roomy so size down if in between.


Fleece Lined Leggings – I don’t go anywhere cold without these and they are currently 50% off! Runs TTS.


ASTR the Label Long Sleeve Top (more ASTR the Label here) – looks like my print may be sold out but they have the same silhouette in several spring prints here! I love the way these tops fit, run TTS. 


Paige Split Hem Pants – similar look for less here!


WAYF Bustier Top (more WAYF here) – on sale and in stock here as well! Runs TTS, I love how the straps are adjustable.


Bing Green Sweatshirt (more Bing here) – runs large, size down. 


Grey Mock Neck Sweater – my most worn sweater is definitely coming along for daytime since I know it’s going to be freezing. 


Line & Dot Sweater Dress – mine is several years old, this is the current version and I love it even more. Runs roomy, size down if in between. 


Everlane Quilted Teddy Coat – LOVE this coat so much and it’s currently on sale! I think the length, fit and style is so good. Runs roomy, I’m in an XS but could have done a Small. 


Grey Lounge Set Top & Bottom – Another set I have owned for a few years but they still carry it! Softest material, has held up in wash and just so comfy. I love the wide leg pant but it also has a jogger option.


Marc Fisher Booties – my old tried and true bootie. I love the color and material and think they are the perfect height for day and night!


Tory Burch Tall Boots – Listen, if they have your size available in these don’t wait! I searched years for a brown suede tall boot that was a good height and a classic style and bought this last year and never looked back. They are now almost 50% off! Run TTS. 


Sam Edelman Combat Boots: We’re driving so I decided to pack a few options just in case 😉


New Balance Sneakers – My favorite sneaker but as many of you know they sell out in seconds. This color combo seems to have sizes in stock and I will keep an eye out!


Versed Cleansing Balm – This has quickly been my daily go-to. Under $20 and easier than my Elemis to travel with. 


Fuzzy Slides – Yes, I take slippers when I travel. I have this pair that I accidentally wore to a kid’s birthday party out of my house because they are so comfortable that I just just for this occasion. 


Slouchy Socks – I plan on throwing these on with my leggings, sweatshirt and sneakers to roam around on Friday! 



Hope that was helpful and you all have an amazing weekend!
