It’s already Tuesday and I’m still trying to recover from this past weekend in Chicago. If you were following along with me on Snapchat (@thefashionhour) or Instagram (@Natalie_Keinan), you probably noticed I left the unbearable heat of Dallas to go to Chicago for the weekend (where I found more unbearable hot weather). Jaclyn Mittman of Pretty Petals and myself took a spontaneous trip to the windy city where we attended a fashion conference and explored the city. We were nonstop and had the most amazing time running around town, taking in as much of Chicago as possible in our short trip. I will be sharing some highlights of our stay at Public Hotels and the many restaurants we were able to hit while there on the blog next week!
As for today’s look, it is all about the back of this dress. The detailing of the back adds a sexy touch to this otherwise very simple black gown. This is another Dillards clearance find (retails at nearly $200 and I paid $17!) that has been a go-to dress for beach vacations and summer weather. The dressy material and striking back make it a perfect dress for dinner al fresco and the slits on either side allow you to show off a great pair of heels. The black lace-ups I’m wearing were another clearance find from Macy’s ($14 and they come in multiple colors) bringing this outfit’s total to only $31! Insane, right? I accessorized with different shades of blue but the wonderful thing about black is that any color or metal will work!
