A Case of the Blues

The goods:
• maxi dress and sandals from Forever21

• sequin studded cardigan by velvet
• necklace from Tiffanys
• bracelets from Mexico

When temps reach into the 90s, dressing for work can get tricky. I want to dress appropriately for the hot walk to the office, but once inside, it's as cold as ice (as most lofted buildings are in Chicago, impossible to temp control). Breezy garments like this maxi dress are my go-to for hot summer days (perfect for keeping cool at weekend street festivals!), but also make great layered pieces by adding a cardigan or jacket. The cobalt dress, pale blue cardigan, and turquoise bangles create a harmonious look, sure a black jacket goes over any bright hue, but another easy way to layer is to stick to one color family.

So bust out a feather light frock and beat the heat this weekend. Me? I'll be at Taste of Randolph sampling all the delicious treats I can (hopefully Nellcote has some tasty bites!). Have a great weekend!
