When In The Windy City

An easy dress for traversing the streets of Chicago
Filed Under > #OOTD (Outfit of the Day)

Recently, I made a trip home to Chicago for my bestie’s wedding.  I couldn’t wait to be back walking those windy streets, especially since the temps had begun to drop and snow was on the verge of falling.  I love that in-between; you can almost smell the first snow before it hits.

The problem though, for me is always what to pack? I mean I’m a terrible packer in the best circumstance. But add in bridesmaid dresses, hot to cold temps, and outfits that would have to be comfortable, and warm enough, to walk around plus fabulous enough for wherever the wind may blow me. Enter my go-to combo: long dress, high boots, and a hat.  Warm, comfortable, and almost always a “no fail.”

I love this W by Worth dress for a few different reasons.  First, it’s extremely comfortable.  Second, it’s extremely light which makes it the perfect outfit to take when traveling.  It doesn’t take up too much room, or weight, in my suitcase plus it’s easy to steam if it wrinkles during the journey.

And third, it’s extremely versatile.  Technically it’s an “off the shoulder” dress, and looks completely the part accessorized with heels and something shiny.  But here because I was going for a bit more relaxed look I wore the dress on the shoulders rather than off and paired it with my over the knee boots and favorite Rag & Bone hat. This allowed me to walk around Chicago comfortably during the day, but felt ready for drinks with friends later that evening.

All in all, it was the perfect outfit for what turned out to be the perfect week in Chicago.  Tell me, do you have a go-to outfit when traveling?  Truly, MKR
