Striped Maxi

I wore this last week when the Blackhawks had a parade through downtown Chicago.  No, I didn't go watch the parade (the crowds were crazy!) but I did get a good view of it from my office.  I don't own a hawks shirt, or, oddly enough, any red clothing, so I thought black and white stripes were in order.


Dress - Bebe (old, similar here) / Sandals - Target / Belt - H&M / Necklace - Baublebar


Today marks the start of activities for my brother's wedding - the ladies in the wedding party are getting mani/pedis at a cute place downtown that also happens to have a full bar.  I say "ladies in the wedding party" because I'm not actually a bridesmaid, my sister and I are the groom's attendants!  Which really means we should get on the whole "writing a best man speech" thing (just kidding Claire, I swear we're on top of it ;)

Have a great holiday tomorrow,  I hope your day includes lots of barbecue and hopefully a few fireworks!
