SWAK Travel Closet: Welcome to Chicago!

Plus Size Chicago It’s time to pack Jolene and take her somewhere fun for the weekend! Next stop, Chicago!

Our playful Jolene Babydoll Top comes in three special prints/colors, and each would work well for this trip. By the way, we invited a few of your besties to tag along. For your first day, go ahead and wake up early. You only live once and this trip is now! Open up those blinds to greet the new day, and watch over your weekend-playground-for-adventure coming up! No need to do your hair today, because we think you’ll look fabulous with a floppy sunhat. Isn’t that the best? This will also protect your hair and skin from the hot Chicago sunshine.

Plus Size Shopping Day

Plus Size Towers
Grab an oversized tote bag and a brightly stoned necklace. This will make your top pop with girlie sass, and will instantly brighten up your look and mood. Same goes for blush. Swipe a little pinky rose on the tops of your cheeks (after the SPF of course). Try Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush in lavish. This bad boy will give you such a fresh flush for summer. I have these in so many shades and they last all day. Slip into our Perfect Leggings. These are so soft and stretchy you won’t even feel like you’re wearing bottoms! This is great on hotter summer days, and makes shopping easier and much more fun. By the way, shopping here is to DIE for. You’ll spend an entire day strolling through the Magnificent Mile.

There are towering shopping centers, intimate retail shops, lavish boutiques, chic designer studios, and grand department stores. It’s a dream come true. Everything seems better when you’re comfy doing it, so this outfits gonna rock for this day! Your final touch might be a pair of sandals with a little flair to them to dress this look up. Now go shop, girl. Ouilla!

It’s Saturday and it’s OK to sleep in a little. Today you’re having a late lunch with the girls at this cute little spot in Geneva, called Fiora’s. We’ve already bought all of your train tickets because taking the train is lovely in the summertime! This adorable spot is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Geneva. They feature an incredible selection of fine wines and European cuisine. For lunch, we created another look using Jolene, again!

Pair her with your favorite rolled-up skinnies. This is a great summer trick and really shows off your shoes! The right shoes light the look on fire, so this is important! Pair these skinnies with heels or flats. We chose ballet flats because you’ll probably walk around a bit after lunch.

Plus Size Laughs
Maybe curl your hair in tousled waves and spritz your neck with a feminine fragrance you love. It’s so much fun to try new perfumes for the season. I’m soo loving Versace’s Eros Pour Femme. It’s delicious and bright with radiant lemon flower and peony notes. Over your shoulder, slip on a bag that’s nice and colorful to add some spunk to your look. Maybe add a flower in your hair or some dangly earrings and a long necklace that matches your bag like we did.

You know what’s super fun after a semi-lazy afternoon lounging around poolside sipping cocktails and reading mystery novels? Hitting the town for a comedy show with the girls.

Many people would argue that Chicago is the home of the funniest clubs in America. Time ranked it #1. The comedy here is supreme. There are 123 comedy clubs in Chi-Town, and the improve scene here is just amazing!

Jolene is back again to make her final showing for your last night with the ladies. Pair her with those same skinnies you wore for lunch. but leave them down and tucked into some tall heeled booties. We love these lace-up ones from ALDO. Grab a cute coin purse and something simple to accessorize with like a bracelet or cool hat and laugh away!!

Isn’t it so exciting to give a top even more function and use? We’ll see you next time!
