Layer Weather in Chicago
Hieee! I’m so excited that Christmas is so close to being here! Last night we went over to my in-laws’ and baked cookies and wore matching pajamas, which is the biggest cliché possible, but we had to comply with my future mother-in-law. I happen to love cheesy things like that. Coziness, sugar, family! Yes, please! Today, we’re planning to continue with the cheese and take Logan (almost 9 months old) to see and sit on Santa’s lap. I’m sure she’ll love it ? This one is for my future sister-in-law, who is still in high school and working as one of Santa’s elves this year, ha! So cute.
Anyway, on to this look: One way to get more wear out of your strappy dresses? Layer them over a turtleneck! It’s a quick and simple way to take any dress from fall to winter and even to your next holiday shindig since turtlenecks have a wintry feel about them and keep you super warm. I love the movement of this dress, as well as its silky soft material, which gives it an understated elegant feel.
We were walking to the lakefront at Belmont Harbor and passed by this beautiful temple. My dad is jewish, so I grew up going to jewish Sunday school, and it was a nice to visit this synagogue, even for just a moment, since it had been so long.
This building’s rose-gold accents were the perfect complement to the hue of the dress.
My youngest brother has such a knack for photography. Even though we were just using my iPhone 7 Plus, he was able to catch cool action photos, like this bus one :).
