On this winter day however, it was fairly nice out. We mid-westerners experienced a touch of spring last week with rare fifty to seventy degree days. But, it didn't last long. Our week of spring ended with a major blizzard and back to twenty degree temperatures. The day I went to the conservatory it was cloudy and the temperatures were in the fifties or low sixties when the sun came out.
This is a dress I've shown you twice before. The first time I styled it for spring HERE, and the second time I styled it for fall HERE. This is one of my favorite dresses because the color can be worn in the colder months and it has a shorter length and short sleeves so I can wear it during the warmer months as well. Thus I get a lot of use of it! Plus, it's a shift dress so it's super comfy!
I wore my shift dress with a black cardigan that could be easily removed if I got too warm. I debated between a scarf or jewelry and I finally decided on a black and gold multi-strand necklace because I thought I might get too warm with a scarf and a sweater. I ended up regretting that decision because we went to the zoo in the afternoon and I was a little chilled. I should have taken the scarf with me and tied it to my bag if I didn't need it. Live and learn.
I wore black and gold bracelets on my wrists. I carried a cross body bag like I normally do when I travel.
My cardigan hangs lower in the back than it does in the front.
For footwear I chose simple black pointed toe flats with a velvet bow.
After the conservatory we visited the Lincoln Park Zoo where I was able to take this picture with the Chicago skyline behind me. It was so nice to be able to take fashion photos with a fun, unique background again instead of on my porch. I took fashion photos everyday and now have five days worth of posts! Yeah! No more dressing up on weekends for awhile just to take pictures!
Have a Great Day! Amy
