Boot Squared: September 11th, 2012
Event: work, apartment touring
Outfit: Shirt: Gap; Skirt: The Limited; Boots: DSW
Stripes & boots. It might be 80+ degrees most afternoons, but I have new boots and I WANNA WEAR ‘EM.
Workday followed by a couple of apartment tours in Lincoln Square. I drove in Chicago for the first time! Okay, not downtown or anything, but I doubt I’ll really ever need to do that. It was only about a thirty minute drive from work (yes!) and wandering around seeking iced coffee reminded me how much I love the area. More and more, I just think it’s the place for me! Or so says my gut. I’m sure I’ll love visiting tons o’ neighborhoods, but, Lincoln Square, how about we start something fabulous?
Debating one of those apartments (PERFECTLY central location, way less closet space than the other one I toured, no dishwasher, more modern, above a bar—pro or con?—nice bathroom, smaller, blahhhhh I DON’T KNOW). My big personal debate right now is whether I care more about the a) space/love for the apartment or b) walking out my door and into the Square. I feel like I’ll make anything my “home” and love it, but, sure, having lots of space to call my own would be nice.
Maybe I just need to wait until October. But patience is not one of my virtues…
P.S. Exhausted and sick, but can’t picture missing work (but need to be healthy for a packed weekend). AND NOW WHINING IS OVER.
