What I'm Reading Now: Caravan of Style

Get ready to bookmark one of my favorite Chicago fashion blogs Caravan of Style.  Monica is a fellow Michigan girl turned city girl living in Chicago with a killer sense of style that's both trendy and classic (something every girl loves). Dressing for all types of weather in the Midwest isn't an easy task, but Monica makes it look both effortless and chic. The best part is Caravan of Style also includes some amazing recipes so you can get your fill of food and fashion all in one place. What could be better than that?

Get to know Monica:

1. What are you currently reading?
I'm currently reading The Shining Girls for my book club, it's quite a graphic novel - something I'm not used to reading but so far it's been an excellent book. 
2. Favorite recipe or restaurant?
My favorite restaurant in Chicago has to be Southport Grocery & Cafe in Lakeview. It was the first restaurant I ate brunch at on my very first visit to Chicago years ago and has been a favorite for years. Menu favorites: the stuffed french toast & the grown-up pop tart.
3. What's your favorite thing about blogging?
I love blogging for so many reasons but two in particular: making new friends & it makes me genuinely happy.  I moved to Chicago a little over a year ago and one of the best and quickest way I have made friends in this city has been through my blog. I love meeting fellow bloggers in the city and it's great that we instantly have something in common together. 
Second, I work a general 9 to 5 corporate job there is little room for creativity or self expression. I use by blog to showcase my personality and the things that make me the happiest. When you have an outlet that brings you immense joy it's the only type of success that matters. 
4. Five things on your wish list:
  • DSLR camera
  • Tory Burch cuff bracelet
  • A classic pair of black Louboutin pumps 
  • A bar cart
  • KitchenAid stand mixer
5. Favorite quote?
"Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together" - Elizabeth Taylor
