Make My Heart Skip a Beat: Florals, Fringe, and Lace

Few months back I posted an outlook with this floral swing dress from Free People that I absolutely love (see here). The truth is, I have been planning for spring/summer outfits since early February even with the full knowledge that spring tends to be a little late to arrive in Chicago. However by the time it was March, I've had enough of snow for my life and decided to layer this very tunic for a photoshoot, and hence the previous post. However, that outfit wasn't exactly as I had planned as the weather was not so forgiving back then--but now that we are enjoying a wonderful summer breeze here in Chicago I decided to wear it just the way I like it!

This time around, lose the leggings, those boots, and the coat! I am wearing a slip with lace trim details underneath the tunic to wear it as a dress as it tends to be slightly shorter in the front. I then put on my fringe sandals and a black suede bucket bag just to not overdo the look. I love how the fabric of the tunic and the lace trimmings feel around my body against the wind, and the way these sleeves cinch my arm and my wrists for that beautiful, yet ever so slight balloon-look. 

What I would give to move to a warmer city where I can enjoy the sun all day every day! A friend suggested that I move to Hawaii as she can totally see me beaming and enjoying the life there instead of all coiled up on my bed, and I can't help but agree with her. Perhaps one day, sooner or later.

XOXO, HaeMin

  2. Oh my gosh you look absolutely beautiful and your look is so on-point! I am actually a student in Chicago and I just made it back home to Oklahoma--I can't believe it's still chilly up there! (okay, I lie, that is totally believable)! Haha I'm going to be spending the summer in Iran so I'm excited to be making up all of the warm weather I never got in Chicago! In any regard, when I return in September, if you're still here and haven't ran away from the cold I'd love to meetup! Just followed you on Insta! xx

  5. Where did you get those shoes from? Those are great! I've been meaning to find cool wedges. I imagine Chicago never gets that warm huh? And that's really funny that you're living in Chicago, because I'm actually moving there in the fall. So if you're still around then, would love to meet up with you :)

  9. I've never worn a slip before but this layering is brilliant! I had no idea that Chicago is still cold, it's been really hot for more than a month here and I wish it would rain to cold things down a little. LOL!

  10. This is a really fun outfit! I am loving how it looks on you. I hope Chicago finally warms up and stays that way for a few months! When my sister lived there for several years she hated how it took forever to get warm, and how it didn't last very long! Anyway- still loving that purple hair of yours!
