We're off to Chicago today with portrait photographer, Betty Elaine Simpson! Betty's husband recently took her there for a weekend trip, and Red Lola was her must-have accessory.
Betty's five favorite things to do in Chicago include:
One - Take pictures at Millennium Park. Just walk around and take the city in. You’ll find plenty of places for photos (including Union Station).
Two - Stay somewhere wonderful with a room on a high floor.
Three - After dinner, go have cocktails at the Signature Lounge atop the John Hancock. It is the best view of the city at night. Tip! The women's bathroom has the best view! Men have tried to go in there to look, ha.
Four - Shop! Magnificent Mile has some great stores...
Five - Visit the Art Institute of Chicago Museum and the Shedd Aquarium!
Thanks for sharing your photos and Chicago highlights with us, Betty! Looks like a fabulous trip!

Hot doesn't even begin to describe the heat we've had in Texas this summer. So today we thought it would be refreshing to escape to the faraway, much colder land that is Iceland.
Dyanamaria is our guide.
Last year Dyanamaria and her Red Lola were Iceland-bound to visit her family.
Dyanamaria's Iceland musts include:
(I'm sneaking in a #6. Þingeyrarkirkja - I'm biased... it was built by my great great great grandfather... you won't find it in any English guidebooks that I know of, but if you meet an Icelander, have them look it up in one of theirs. You'll get directions down a long ranch road and out of nowhere this black stone church pops up. It's perfectly preserved and really incredible.
More pictures from Dyanamaria's trip to Iceland can be found on her blog. And we're not kidding. You really should see them because they are absolutely breathtaking.
Dyanamaria, you are adorable and we are so grateful for your Where Did You Have Your Epiphanie? submission. We know our readers are too!
