My time in Chicago continues and today I went to one of the ultimate highlights of the city: The Art Institute of Chicago. And what a wonderful museum it is!

They have a fantastic collection and the building is gorgeous as well, combining the original structure with the modern wing, designed by Renzo Piano. Among many master pieces you can see American Gothic, one of the most iconic American paintings from the XX century (picture below)

The Museum is next to the Millennium Park where the popular sculpture The Bean is located (its real name is Cloud Gate and it was designed by Anish Kapoor).  See pictures below.

I’m wearing skinny jeans and cardigan by H&M, shirt by Michael Kors and shoes by Prada.
