Chicago summers are filled with bike rides along the lake, Navy Pier fireworks, Cubs baseball game,
people watching at Lollapalooza, and much more. There is never a dull moment in this city, especially in the summer.
Sometimes, though, the weather does not agree with your plans. For example, mother nature will not care that you are having a photo shoot for your first blog post. The heat will be cranked way up and the humidity will be high. Your make up will melt off of your face and your hair will grow twice its size as you desperately try to look “blogger chic” and effortless in your pictures.
To all the style bloggers out there, I mean… like…. how do you do it??
To stay cool (& help me look like less of a hot mess), I paired this Zara midi length dress with some minimalistic black sandals from Nordstrom Rack. One of the many great things about this dress is that you can wear it in the summer or in the fall. The fabric is like chiffon which makes it light enough to wear in the summer. The deeper yellow color is perfect as a summer to fall transition color. To complete a fall look, pair this dress with a darker denim or black leather jacket and some peep toe ankle booties.
