I’ve posted sporadically here and there but it wasn’t consistent. With the pandemic a lot has changed…, including myself.
Let’s face it: Chicago is cleaner than New York City and nicer than Los Angeles. I’ve lived in Chicago for more than 15 years and I still swoon over our museum campuses, with art, sea life and T-Rex bones among the attractions.

I’ve been blogging or shall I call it “influencing” for over 6 years now. I started What Would V Wear on a whim and big dreams. I set goals for myself, spent countless sleepless nights working on my content while working full-time until I quit my corporate job to pursue entrepreneurship. Six years later, I’m proudly self-employed. It’s been a wild ride but one I wouldn’t want to change for the world!

Keep reading to learn how I’ve paired some of our very favorite striped sweaters!
If you’re looking to visit a pumpkin farm in the Midwest, I recommend visiting “The Land of the Giants” in Wisconsin. Unlike other farms, no preregistration was required and yet they are making every effort to keep their customers safe. My boys had a ball at the farm, it was the perfect ground to get lost in the corn on an autumn adventure.
