Last chance to vote for your favorite outfit of November!
And it wasn’t until I was already wearing it and taking pictures that I realized that I’d basically worn the same thing in a different color scheme to the Chicago Auto Show earlier this year.
This time, though, I wore it to walk to work. I don’t usually walk to work but there’s a reason I did last Friday.
There’s a walk-up coffee, doughnut and gelato window in my neighborhood that’s on my way to my office if I walk. It’s called Bombobar, it’s part of a restaurant called Bar Siena, and on Friday they were offering free coffee and “bombolinis” (aka filled doughnuts) to members of the Windy City Blogger Collective. Sadly, when I arrived on Friday morning to get coffee to enjoy on my walk to the office they weren’t quite ready to be open. But, I’d already committed to walking to work so walk I did. It’s about two miles and I chose these TOMS specifically because I knew I could walk that much in them.
I stopped and got my coffee and doughnut on my way home, though! Jason and split a PB&J bombolini for dessert and I saved my coffee for breakfast the next morning. Not sure if that’s gross or not but it’s what I did.
Chewie, however, was very interested in my “prop” during our photoshoot.
After having the PB&J bombolini I decided I wanted to try the Salted Caramel one that everyone was raving about. However, once again I stopped by Bombo Bar on my way to work yesterday around 7:15 AM and there were no employees to be seen. I rang the bell and waited a minute but the only movement I saw was a cleaning person hosing off a mat in the kitchen. So, I walked to work sans coffee (and doughnut) again. But! There was a happy ending. Bombobar saw my disappointment on Twitter and brought me doughnuts and coffee at work! My coworkers were very appreciative.
