40+ hour weeks, 5 days a week makes me LIVE for the weekends. It’s a constant struggle in my closet trying to have a decent selection of work outfits AND outfits for the weekend… first world problems I suppose. In any case, I found this sweater dress at Nordstrom and it really is perfect for a night out on the weekend. I love cuts with a little sass and the two piece addition to this dress with a turtle neck is so classy and sexy at the same time. It’s perfect for date night with #bae and great for a night out with the gals too. I added black boots, my tan Chelsea 28 handbag for some color (similar bag HERE!), curled my hair for some flare and added my Bauble Bar earrings.
For my Chicago squad, I will gladly grab a cocktail with you at Ella Elli anytime- the ambiance is amazing, food is delish and customer service is on point. Not to mention I want my apartment to look just like it!
I feel it in my bones that spring is around the corner, and even if it takes a minute to warm up, I think this sweater dress can be worn in the fall, winter, and spring for a night time occasion. I can’t wait to walk down Michigan Avenue with the tulips in full bloom, explore the streets of Lakeview/Lincoln Park, and run along Lakeshore Drive. I am excited to say I don’t have any travel plans on the horizon except fore the occasional work trip here and there, and my family coming to visit Chicago in April! The months seem to be flying by but my craving for summer time Chicago is so real. I am still embracing the sweaters, booties and winter wear lifestyle, but my goodness am I excited for the months to come.
