Weekend Wear: Wedding in Chicago (ootd)

Bridging winter and spring

Reed and I went to a wedding in Chicago a couple weeks ago and I was torn about what to wear considering it was April, but the weather was in the 30s! Suffice to say I froze while taking these pictures (notice the RBF and neck tension… 🤦🏻‍♀️😬), but I just had to show off this stunning floral dress.

I’m obsessed with the heavier fabric combined with a short sleeve silhouette and brighter print. The black lace grounded the dress and it felt appropriate for the weather paired with a warm wrap. However florals are very springy and celebratory as well.

This was a great Anthropologie sale find that fit perfectly since it’s from Eva Franco’s petite line. I love the flirty ruffles and red pattern detail on black lace. It’s an intricate dress that doesn’t overwhelm my petite frame, which is rare. It’s quite short for me, so I was glad it has more of a relaxed swing silhouette.

I’m also loving these black strappy sandals. I purchased them for a wedding we went to last October and I’ve gotten more wear out of them than I had original figured for a bolder shoe. The simple color and comfortable heel makes these my go-to fancy sandal for nights out or events. Here are a couple similar pairs under $100 or under $35.

We finally had some 60* weather here in the city, so I’m hoping Spring is here for good and I’ll have more outfits to share! In the meantime, do you have a go-to look for weddings? How about any recommendations for comfy shoes that still look cute?
