First off, I’m hosting an event tomorrow at the Chicago Premium Outlets in Aurora along with a few of my favorite bloggers, and would love it if you could join us! The event is a day of fun in honor of moms, there will be entertainment, free gifts, style segments, and a fashion presentation. I will be sharing five cool ways to rock a scarf, and trust me they only look complicated. Other topics include, Quick and Easy Hair Styles, How TO DIY a tulle skirt, How To Add Edge To Your Style, and Easy Ways To Add Color To Your Wardrobe.
Ride free from Chicago using the shuttle code LoveZahra ($20 value) Advanced reservations are required, and can be made by calling (312)226-5466 or online via the Chicago Premium Outlets web site (link under Directions & Transportation/By Bus). The shuttle departs Union Station (southeast corner of Union and Canal) at 10 a.m., and leaves the center for its return trip to the city at 4 p.m. Hope to see you there!
On to today’s look – A few days ago I went to my first Kentucky Derby party, and it was so much fun. I had never been to one before, growing up in Northern California it wasn’t really a ‘thing’, but I obviously knew they existed and secretly, I always want to dress up like a Southern belle and just be fancy.
I searched high and low for a dress to compliment my big pink hat I bought, and I fell in love immediately with this white ruched tank dress. It is body-con but the tank straps keep it looking modern, and the ruching makes it okay to ditch the spanx – which is a good thing because it felt like a summer day in Chicago, with temps hitting the mid 80’s. My favorite kind of day!
I will definitely wear this dress over and over throughout the summer with flat sandals and a denim jacket or a blazer.
My bouquet was a gift from Flowers for Dreams, but it coordinated so well with this outfit I had to use it as an accessory. Flowers for Dreams is an awesome new shop where 1/4 of the net profit of each sale goes to charity – plus they do other cool stuff like have ‘free flower Friday’ and are just generally do-gooders, which I promote wholeheartedly. With Mother’s Day around the corner, this might be the perfect gift!
