Today’s dress for the A Dress A Day series is all about what to wear for a winery! Every day since I moved to Chicago, I’ve walked over the Riverwalk. Most of the shops and restaurants are closed all winter long. I literally mean all winter. But about a month ago they started to open! One of the spots I’ve been dying to try is City Winery which is right around the corner from where these photos were taken.

A Dress A Day: Bridesmaid Dress (Day 8)

Blue Chiffon Wrap Dress | White Heels (also love this lower heel!) | Palm Print Crossbody Bag (yes, you can wear this print!) | White Sunglasses (finally found them online!! Also love this cat eye!) | Simple Gold Necklace | Lipstick in ‘Babe Alert’

How many of you have been forced to wear an ugly bridesmaid dress? You know what I’m talking about. The dress you try on at one of those bridal boutiques that you know you won’t be able to wear ever again. You reason with yourself by saying maybe you can wear it to another wedding. One where none of the guests at this wedding will be? Good luck. Most friend groups overlap. Of course, you can’t say anything to the bride. It takes all of your might to make sure your face isn’t saying what you’re thinking. Let alone feign enthusiasm. If you can do that though, you’re a better person than I am! I have RBF. It’s real, y’all. This is reason for today’s post in my A Dress A Day series!

Hello yellow! When is the last time you went on a picnic in a park? Or even at the beach? It’s not often that Matt and I make time for picnics. And as I talked about on Saturday, there aren’t a whole love of patches of grass living in a big city. Sure, LA was a big city but there were definitely more parks in our neighborhood. I remember Matt and I doing a date night in one of our local spots once during the summer. It was so fun to switch things up a bit. Saying pass to our usual dinner spots and getting outside was refreshing!
