It was almost too good to be true!  Sleeveless in Chicago became the theme this past Saturday as temperatures soared past the 60s and into the 70s.  The city was alive and people were out and about soaking up some much needed sun and fun.  I was no exception.  I was all too happy to get out of the house and stroll around Oak Street.  And who better to roam the streets with than my second fave photog (first is the hubs duh), Chris Kim (aka Tum Tum)  We had ourselves quite a fun morning.  I am undertaking in a fun project with him and the glam squad Izha and Ann, which involved me pulling some amazing gowns from Ultimate Bride.  I felt like a kid in a candy store.  Tulle, ruffles, satin, lace, sparkles, beading… oh my.  I am so excited for this shoot because I get to play stylist a little bit and drape some exquisite dresses on gorgeous models.  Not going to lie, I’m probably going to sneak into this Jenny Packham gown that makes me swoon every time I see it.  I wish I had some sort of fancy ball to go to so I can wear it.  I can’t wait to show you guys the images from the shoot!  Definitely going to blog it so be excited!

I had so much fun shooting outside with Tum Tum this day.  It worked out so well because I really wanted to show you guys this outfit.  I am obsessed with sleeveless trenches right now.  It’s so rare that it makes sense here in Chicago but Saturday was perfect!  Nothing feels cooler than having a sleeveless trench on you on a slightly windy day and feeling the panels flap around as you walk.  And by walk, I mean STRUT, because trust me, it makes you want to STRUT YO STUFF!  It’s so easy to throw on and can completely dress up a simple tank and track pant style denim outfit.  Which, by the way, is the other thing I am obsessed with.  These pants which have a jean feel and look, but the material is so light weight and soft.  I could wear these every day!  I love how comfortable they are and the elastic on the bottom keeps the hem in place so you can move it up or down as you please.  They can be dressed down with sneakers or dressed up with pumps.  I am so obsessed with them that I bought a second pair in a different color.  Hehehe.  I love pieces that require very little thought but are still stylish and can go with lots of different looks.  I hope you guys enjoy the look and the photos!  Thanks again to Tums for the shots.  It was fun actually having some direction and feedback during these blog shoots.  Let’s do it again soon!  Hehehe…
