This past weekend in Chicago has been absolutely blazing hot! I wished for Summer the entire Winter and Spring season and now I want nothing to do with it! I am glad that the temperatures are taking a nose dive into the 70’s from the 100’s! Thank god! With this crazy weather I needed a cool yet classy dress for our fancy dinner at Maple and Ash for my husbands birthday. Bonus points because I scored the dress at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
Astr The Label Lace Dress
I was casually browsing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale not really looking to buy anything. This dress caught my eye, it was a fabulous deal too and I am not one to say no to a great deal! With a few occasions coming up, I had to have it! I picked it in a stunning lemon yellow shade and hoped it would fit. It was my husbands birthday and I got a new dress!
When I received the dress, it was as gorgeous as it looked online! I literally could-not-wait to try it on! I am usually an XS but the brand said to order a size up since the dress runs small and I am so glad I did. The size S fit me like a glove!
Bonus points to this dress for being able to easily slip the strap off and breastfeed!
Ever since becoming a mom, I have noticed that I don’t wear sky high heels that often anymore. My main reason is not being able to manage carrying an 18 pound pumpkin in heels! Now even when she was lighter I struggled. So I picked a pair of 2 inched wedge heels in nude with a pretty little bow and my favorite Chloe handbag in blush. I kept the accessories neutral not taking anything away from the dress! I picked a beautiful pair of gold earrings from Baublebar and tied my hair into a neat little bun! After all, I did not want to get hot and it classed up the look 🙂 Finally, I finished off with a beautiful charm bracelet from Anthropologie!
The look was simple, elegant and most of all comfortable! The last thing I needed was to feel hot or uncomfortable in the ridiculous Chicago summer heat!
I got a bunch of compliments on the dress, you can snag it for the same wonderful price I did at the Nsale!
The dinner was absolutely amazing in case you were wondering. I am going to share more deets on that in an upcoming post! Stay tuned 🙂
Happy Sunday Everyone!
