Blue Jean Baby


Happy Wednesday, you guys! I’m so sad to say this, but I think this outfit will be the last remnants of  nice weather for me. Two weeks ago it was unseasonably warm, so I took advantage of the weather and headed out to the Randolph Street Market. It was seriously so awesome – floors upon floors of so many vintage and unique finds. I ended up spending way more than I had intended, but I’m happy with everything I purchased, so it was definitely worth it! If you’re in the Chicago area, they’re having another holiday show this weekend, so I would certainly check them out! If you end up going, let me know because I’ll be there! I bought the prettiest pair of earrings and the most gorgeous pashmina scarf for such steals, and I can’t wait to show you all!

Anyways, like I was saying – I think we’re nearing the end of warm temperatures, but I had to get one more wear out of a summery dress and strappy sandals! I picked up this fun maxi from Zara a few weeks back, and it was on sale for $19! I figured the deep hues would make this an easy transition piece into fall, but I’ve quickly learned that Chicago weather is dysfunctional; 70 degrees one day, and 40 the next.

Either way, I know it’s a piece that I’ll have for a while, and when Chicago does have those random warm nights, I’ll be pulling this out and pairing it with my trusty leather jacket!

      Thanks a lot, Taylor! And you just gave me some serious inspiration! I’ve been trying to figure out how to keep wearing the dress, so I’m definitely going to try that!
