Hello darlings! Today I am sharing an extra special dress, shot in an extra special location. The last special occasion dress I shared was just a little too fabulous to be photographed around my neighborhood, so my photographer/gal pal and I ventured to the gorgeous Conrad hotel for our photoshoot. We had the best time and decided moving forward, upscale looks deserve upscale venues! Chicago has the most beautiful hotels, photoshoots are a great excuse to explore the beauty. I had never been to the Langham hotel, but it has been on my wishlist for a hot minute. The Langham is the epitome of luxury in the Windy City and has been named the number one hotel in the United States. I highly recommend treating yourself to a staycation in this stunning space, or a great meal in the restaurant. My girlfriend and I couldn’t bring ourselves to leave without stopping for lunch and we both agreed…best French fries ever!
Now for the fashion. I ordered this Self Portrait dress during a Shopbop sale and told myself, “I will only keep it if I’m obsessed!” And here we are:) The rich mesh-like lace detail, playful volume of the skirt, asymmetrical neckline, perfect shade of pink, and perfectly placed pockets make this dress an absolute knockout. Perfect for a summer wedding or special occasion. I love a girly dress like this paired with an unexpected pair of funky booties, but I styled it up this time with my favorite pair of SJP nude heels. Rose gold bracelet by Monica Vinader, Kate Spade earrings. A high ponytail styled by the babes at Blowout Junkie completed the fiercely feminine look I was going for. All photos taken by my gal Olivia Szwarc.
Anything is possible with laughter, sunshine, happiness, and a little bit of pink. And please note…pink is always in season y’all.
