Vineyard Vines in Chicago

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a bit of a preppy at heart, which is why I was so excited to learn when Vineyard Vines was opening up a flagship store in Chicago! 

I was lucky enough to meet Shep and Ian, founders of Vineyard Vines, at a luncheon celebrating the launch. Their story is so inspiring and they’ve got plans for even more stores in the near future. Check out their winter collection here – there are a couple of party dresses that are definitely on my list! 

As a busy mom, I’m a big fan of wearing dresses. They are easy to pick out when rushing to get out of the door in the morning, and they usually don’t need to be ironed if hung properly. In the cooler months my go-to is definitely a sweater dress. So when I got this wool/cashmere sweater dress from Vineyard Vines, I couldn’t wait to wear it. I styled it belted with high heel pointed-toe boots for work, and with flat over the knee boots for the weekend, like below. I went a size up to be safe, but I think the clothing is pretty true to size so I’d go with your regular sizing if you buy.
