Stop everything you’re doing & give this post a read.
WHY? Because ONE: it was a fab shoot with some fellow Chicago bloggers featuring Shop 522 Envy; TWO: This dress is the perfect transition piece for the upcoming warm weather; & THREE: This blue beauty just launched…TODAY; which means all of you fab fashionistas can be the first to have it AND receive 15% OFF! Oh & FOUR: Did I mention how much of a blast this was? Okay, I’m too excited.
The “Blue Beauty Cobalt Shift Dress” was everything & more for this lovely lady & I. Look at how fab fellow Chicago Blogger @dressjessilyn is as we stroll the streets of the city hand in hand (& completely owning it I must say.) I don’t even think people realized we were wearing the same dress with how differently we both styled it. With her bright floral vest & electric green Michael Kors; she got us all excited for Spring.

& as for me: I decided to keep it sleek & cool by adding all black & silver accents. This made for the perfect date night out with a glass or two of wine in hand. By adding these lace up heels & lace kimono, it gave it a boho relaxed style while still dressed up. Of course, the silver earrings & glittered clutch were the perfect touch for that “out on the town” style. I can’t preach enough about how fun it is to have a dress as simple as this one. WHY? Because you are literally free to style it any way you want. All of the bloggers in this shoot are living proof of that:
Am I right? Lets start from the left:
Carla from @chronicallychic captured the biker feel by adding a leather jacket, leather wedges, & some black tights for the colder days. Let’s not forget the beanie & sunnies that gave this dress a more casual feel! Check out more of her looks on http://www.522envy.com
Amna from @theamnaali was daring by adding a red & black checkered scarf, tights, & knee high boots to state the fact that you can still wear a dress in the chilly days of February! http://www.theamnaali.com
Abril from @tcolorpalette ultimately showed the comfortable side of the dress by throwing on a crew neck sweatshirt & some comfy booties. & for a little glitz, a statement necklace. the-colorpalette.blogspot.com
