Windy City Life Lately

Happy Friday Friends,

I’ve been a busy bee here at Windy City Wardrobe HQ (aka my 400 sq ft apartment) with all the changes to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and here on the blog. I’ve also have been dedicating a lot of time and energy to my day job, while simultaneously planning a getaway for the big three-oh this summer. Plus I received very exciting news; Windy City Wardrobe won Best LGBT Blog Award! And the icing on the cake is my Editor-In-Chief (aka wife) won best comics for her site. Which means we’re taking this show on the road to the Blogging While Brown Conference in D.C. where we will receive both awards in person. I’m excited! I’m thankful. But I’m also a wee bit overwhelmed with idea of giving an acceptance speech. Which is why I decided to incorporate this screaming sculpture in a photo shoot.asos curveDress: Asos Curve ($65) | Earrings: Standout Style Boutique ($24.50) | Clutch: Asos ($12)


I bet you’ve been busy too. No worries, check out what you missed last week on Windy City Wardobe.

    Many congratulations yet again for your award. I’m seriously so proud of you. Your work on this blog is amazing and it’s really nice to see you get recognized for that. So really, congratulations!

    Looks like you’re going to be busy coming up! Make sure to take time to really enjoy everything you’re doing. You’ve gained amazing success. Soak it in a little bit. It’s totally okay to go off the hustle for a few minutes. Hah!

    Unrelated: when did you change your blog look?! I LOVE it so much!

      Hey Dannie! Thank you, thank you very much. I’m ALWAYS busy; I’ve accepted that. Once I started looking at blogging like a snap shot of my life it made things easier. I’ve always been obsessed with photography so no shortage of photos here. Plus lucky me, my better half enjoys being Editor and Photographer. I made a LOT of changes to the blog and my social media last week, whew😥😧 glad that’s over.

    You are going to CRUSH your acceptance speech! Just speak from your heart and imagine the audience on donkeys if you get nervous. I realize that the cliche here would be to imagine them in their underwear, but I’d get way too distracted by the attractive audience members. I love the new site design, too!

      Thanks for the vote of confidence Kaitlin😄 Yeah, I might give the donkeys a try because I DEFINITELY DON’T want to see everyone in their underwear. Glad you like the site changes
