Exploring Milwaukee

Monday, October 06, 2014





||The Loft Zip Front Field Jacket| Express Low Rise Jean Leggings| J.Crew Factory Graphic Tee (old, love this) | Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers | MissGlamorazzi for Bauble Bar Necklace (old, love this) ||

One of the things we loved about Milwaukee was that you did not really need a car to get anywhere! We only used one to get to the ballpark and to the airport. My friend, Betsy, who lives there walks to work every day. (How awesome is that?!) We dedicated one day to really exploring the area so I knew I needed a comfy outfit. Layers + walking shoes were a must. 

If we weren't walking, we were riding bikes we rented from Bublr Bikes. It is really the coolest thing -- you pay $7 and can rent a bike for 24 hours! The only downfall is you have to "check in" to a station ever 30 minutes, but we were always able to make the time limit. I have not been on a bike probably since elementary school, so I was a little intimidated to be riding around the streets of downtown Milwaukee at first.  I picked it up fast, and now Tyler thinks I should upgrade to a moped haha!

  24. You have to check into a station every 30 minutes?! That definitely seems challenging! They should give you at least an hour! I guess you proved the whole "it's like learning to ride a bike" theory though if you were still able to do it. LOL. Perfect touring-around-town outfit too with the jacket, jeans, tee and chucks!
