Happy Wednesday, everyone! I spent my weekend somewhere incredibly warm with my friend Lexi… just kidding, we literally walked right out of my apartment across the street! BUT this dress and background made me feel like I was somewhere similar to Charleston, so it was nice to just daydream! During my quick trip to Chicago, I stopped at one of my favorites stores – AKIRA. I became familiar with the store from a previous trip several years ago, and every time I’m there, it’s a place I have to visit. They have the cutest clothes, but most importantly, they’re affordable. You can always find recent trends – like lace-up bodysuits (I purchased that one in black!), off-the-shoulder tops, and pretty trapeze dresses like the one I’m wearing!I typically don’t bare my shoulders because they’re so broad, but I’ve found that this silhouette is super flattering! Plus the print on this trapeze dress is absolutely to die for and will be perfect for any spring and summer outings! I also picked up this Old Navy Saddle Bag and I. am. obsessed! We’ve all seen the gorgeous Chloe cross body that I cannot afford, but this is the perfect alternative in my opinion! It’s extremely durable and is very high-quality in person, but the bonus is that it’s less than $35! I drove an hour away to pick it up, and it was such a good decision! The outfit wouldn’t be complete without my absolute favorite heels. I’ve been getting so much wear out of them, and am even considering wearing them with my graduation dress (I went with the blush pink)!
