I found out about this pop up experience in Chicago through on of my favorite bloggers Olivia Rink. If you guys don’t follow her Instagram account I highly recommend that you do. She is a fashion blogger based in Chicago. The pop up experience is called Happy Place, and features a tour through a variety of rooms filled with immersions, larger than life installations, and the most Instagram worthy backdrops. Some of the installations included are a confetti dome, 7 foot stilettos, a rubber duck room, and a giant ball pit. The Chicago experience has been extended through September 3rd so get your tickets and camera and get ready for a great time!
They experience is open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11am to 8pm and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10am to 8pm. I definitely recommend a day during the week to beat the crowds. Tickets must be purchased online for a specific time slot. They allow a certain number of people inside every 30 minutes. Make sure you are on time. If you are more than 20 minutes late you will be denied entry. Most people take an average of two hours to walk through everything, but it ended up taking us four hours because if you know me, then you know I love to take pictures.
The tickets are 30 dollars for Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and 35 dollars for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Valet parking is available for those interested and costs 12 dollars per vehicle. The staff is very friendly, and they were more than willing to take photos for us. My favorite part of the experience was jumping into the giant ball pit! I overall really enjoyed this experience and highly recommend it!
My shirt and skirt are both from Dry Goods. Unfortunately their website will not be back up until this fall so I won’t be able to link the items below. Both items were purchased two weeks ago, and were a new shipment that just arrived in stores so they should both be in stock. I think the yellow top matches so well with so many of the rooms inside the pop up experience. The color yellow has become one of my favorites, especially in the summer when I have a tan. The skirt has these beautiful tortoise colored buttons and white horizontal and vertical lines through it. I paired it with my favorite black heels from Charlotte Russe and a statement necklace from Charming Charlie’s.
I hope you are all having a great Monday. Thank you for reading!
