Hey, everyone! Yesterday, I took advantage of the 70 degree weather and spent some quality time in the sunshine with an order of large fries. My shirt also happened to feature the very same french fries I was eating – go figure. I decided to break out my American Apparel denim skirt (scored at a thrift store in Wicker Park a few months back) and rocked a beanie and was surprisingly not sweaty. My slept-in braids kept me cool while I basked in the rays and ate my Chicken McNuggets. A day well spent.

Hey, everyone! My post about my sorority’s spring formal is one of my successful posts to date, so I decided to feature my look for winter formal! Since Chicago winter is crazy cold, I specifically wanted a long-sleeved dress that was knee-length or longer. Finding a dress with these specific requirements in mind was no easy task, but I finally landed on the perfect one from Forever 21. It’s quite modest and the lace-up detailing in the back is perfectly on-trend. This dress is supposed to hit near the knee for tall people, but on me it fits like a maxi dress! Since it’s so long, I opted out of wearing tights. Since my dress and shoes are black, I chose colorful makeup to balance it out, along with a clear purse (shaped like a video tape).
