Hi there! So as I mentioned last week, I’m off to Europe again for Christmas! I was feeling a little homesick this holiday season and was *luckily* able to secure another trip back home. It’s definitely not going to be as crazy as DCT’s and my trip in September as I’m barely staying a full week, but it’ll be nice to just hang at home with the family vegging out on the couch and maybe doing a little retail therapy at various Christmas markets.
Europe in general has become a second home to me and has influenced my life in more ways than one. From their food, culture, and style I try and bring various aspects back with me to Chicago. Today I wanted to share some style inspirations I’ve had for the holidays, so whether you’re staying in the city, heading home, or jetsetting on a fabulous end-of-the-year getaway take some style influences from popular destinations in Europe, no passport required
