Dressing for the temperature in Chicago is a never ending battle. During the winter, us Chicagoans have to consider clothes that’ll keep us both cozy outside and cool inside.
This little black dress by Reformation is PERFECT for a crisp Valentine’s Day. It has the warmth of a sweater and all that bare leg to keep you comfortable. It also uses surplus materials, which would otherwise end up in landfills. Surplus fabric disposed of in landfills is so not cute. But, this dress made from it sure is!
Since it’s a bit chilly and dreary in Chicago, I opted for fun, colorful tights. I’m accessorizing with the belt because it matches the tights so well.
One of my favorite color combos is black and gold. There’s something sophisticated and alluring about those colors together. That’s why I’m combining the Stella McCartney bag, Ways of Change choker and Jeffrey Campbell booties, to add sleekness to this Valentine’s Day outfit.
With a lot of heart,
