lace-mix minidress

scarf: Gucci similar // dress: Who What Wear // sandals: Gucci // shades: Prada

And just like that, it’s summertime in Chicago! It’s been in the mid to upper 80s for the past week. Summer is my season – sandals, dresses, beaches, patios, etc. This breezy dress is perfect for this type of weather. It’s lightweight cotton and has just the right amount of lace for a flirty detail. I’m still growing out my hair, though it’s not long enough to pull back yet. So silk wraps and bobby pins are my go-to.

‘Tis the season for holiday parties. Since most begin right after work, a desk-to-drink look is best. For me, it’s black with a play on textures and subtle gold accents. All-day comfort is important, too. If you’re not one to wear heels all day, don’t start now! Hobbling into the party isn’t the way to go, so bring those heels with you to slip on right before heading out. Freshen your makeup and add a bold lip, like YSL – Le Rouge.
