Spring has really and truly officially arrived in Chicago. And by that I mean today is properly rained instead of snowing. And construction vehicles are out in full force. My favorite joke about Chicago weather is that we have four seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Construction. We’re finally moving out of Still Winter and into Construction which means it’s going to rain a lot but not be cold anymore!
Alas, with rain comes the struggle to find places to shoot. So these photos are less than ideal. It doesn’t help that it’s incredibly difficult to lug a proper camera around downtown while working so I’m stuck with the best camera app I can find for my phone. But we all make do with what we got, right?
We were specifically asked to look extra nice today (read: no jeans) because of filming going on in the office. This is my way of keeping it classy and still bringing that spring brightness into the office with me.
The skirt is actually a Topshop dress I found on the clearance rack last August. The top did not fit in any way shape or form so I turned it into a skirt instead. The print was too great to pass up!
