Our Day with Will / by Alaina @ Live Creating Yourself

Four(?) years ago I met Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar at a lovely and memorable dinner in New York City. We've stayed good blog friends, keeping up with one another's sites and careers, and it's been incredible watching his success grow. Danielle and I met up with him for lunch when we visited London this past fall, making it the second time we've ever hung out in person, and this month, he's been dotting across the United States promoting his new book! We were so excited Chicago was one of his stops, and he asked us to show him around the city on Sunday. The sites we visited were all going to be documented for a post on West Elm's blog Front and Main (they were hosting his book tour), so the talented Maura Stoffer was there to capture everything. It's really incredible seeing beautiful, candid photos from such a special day with friends.

Here's the tour we took Will on...
