These pictures were taken after a fun morning with some of my favorite Chicago bloggers at Goop‘s Pop Up Shop a few weeks ago. After a beautiful breakfast at the Waldorf Astoria, Shaheen from Lows to Luxe, Jill from Hot Pink Style and I stayed a bit to take advantage of the sunshine. If only all days started with a Gwyneth Paltrow inspired morning and blogger photo shoots!
Getting dressed in this transitional weather can be difficult. Bare legs is taking it too far, but you refuse to wear tights anymore… I feel ya. My solution has become maxis – specifically this unbelievably soft one by Lou & Grey. To counter the fact that it feels like you’re wearing pajamas in it, I added a leather belt, a soft jean jacket and chunky sandals.
And because I’m desperate for summer, a bright scarf never hurt anyone 🙂
And then there’s the real star of the outfit! I should start by saying that I was not on board when this trend first started making it’s way into magazines and stores. I totally scoffed at it! I was not a fan at all… until I saw this backpack. The quilted leather and the perfect shape won me over, and now that I own one – I’m obsessed. It’s perfect for running around the city, and I love it because it fits my DSLR camera!
Hope you’re all having a great week!

I wanted to let you know I read this last night and first thing this morning I went to Loft to try this dress on. I was surprised it was long enough on me, and I absolutely LOVED it. I probably would have never picked it up if I hadn't seen it on here. I am ordering the belt now too 🙂 I hope we run in to each other wearing it ha
