Greetings From Chicago


Happy Monday! I hope you all are having a great day so far! Today I have another dress because who doesn’t love a good dress!?! This comfy off the shoulder striped dress is perfect for hot summer weather. I love this dress because it can be worn off the shoulder or as I have worn it in these photos. I love a versatile dress like that!  🙂 

Striped Off the Shoulder Striped Dress

I paired this off the shoulder striped dress with a simple brown clutch that I have been using non-stop since I bought it and of course you gotta wear comfy wedges. The chambray wedges look great with a dress or even white jeans.

Chicago is always a good idea.

A huge thank you to Ali Stone Photography for the amazing photos. She was so fun to work with and so sweet. ❤  Check out her blog, Those White Walls.

I loved shooting at the Greetings from Chicago mural! It is bright and showcases all the awesome things that Chicago has to offer. My boyfriend is a big Chicago Blackhawks fan so I was glad that they were included in the mural.

This mural is created by mural artist, Victor Ving, and photographer, Lisa Beggs. They are on a cross-country road trip in a RV creating interactive murals . In the next few weeks I will be in Seattle and plan to get a photo at the mural there. Then in August I am going to Houston and maybe I will have a chance to get a photo there, too!   🙂
