Happy December all! I hope everybody had a good holiday break and some time to relax. I had a super busy and fun weekend. The highlight would have to be becoming a Godmother to a sweet baby girl, Maria. I’ll be posting photos soon of her big day.

I feel like I haven’t posted a look in a while, but that’s because the temperatures have been all over the place. It was actually decent weather over Thanksgiving break, so I wore this jersey knit dress. It probably is the most comfortable dress in my closet currently. I love how the front zipper gives me options on how to wear the dress and I really like how the pockets sway as I walk.

When deciding on a dress to buy, I always look for those little details that would make a dress stand out from the others. This also plays into how to photograph an outfit look. The city of Chicago is my urban canvas. Little secret and random spots make for the best backdrops focusing attention onto the look. Roaming around to different neighborhoods also gives me inspiration; therefore, I couldn’t ask for a better city than Chicago.

There’s An Elephant In The Room

It’s always a bit hard at the beginning of the year to go into full swing of a demanding school schedule, but I’m hoping these next few days go by smoothly.

Every year, I like celebrating the new year by getting a new dress, for no particular reason other than I really like dresses. This year, eShakti sent me this awesome print dress with elephants. In a nutshell, you can customize any dress by inputting your measurements and deciding what length and style you like at a reasonable price point. My dress feels magical and feels like I went and got it tailored and designed exactly to my body. Well, I actually did. I picked the print I wanted and originally, this dress was knee length and sleeveless, so I made it mini-style and added cap sleeves. You too can be your own designer and get a custom-made dress and today is your lucky day because it’s buy one, get one free!

Stars StarsStars StarsStarsI’m already gearing up for the 4th of July this upcoming weekend by channeling Ms. July in this playful printed stars pocket dress. Nothing says America like red, white and blue especially sitting on a Chicago Fire Department truck. Besides holiday fashion, I’m really looking forward to a bbq this weekend and some quality time with the sun and even possibly watching fireworks at the park. What are you plans for the holiday weekend?
