Black and White and Red All Over

Dress and Earrings (similar) - J. Crew Factory / Bag - Gap / Flats - BP / Bracelet - BaubleBar

I always have this struggle living in Chicago, in that I always want to wear my pretty dresses and heels, but 99% of the time it ends up feeling too dressy. Chicago is a really casual town, and unless you're going to one of the fanciest of restaurants (Spiaggia, I'm looking at you!) jeans are appropriate just about everywhere. To combat that overdressed feeling, I often pair my dresses with flats instead! Instead of dressed up, I end up feeling "fresh as a daisy," as Issac Mizrahi has said about one million times over this current season of Project Runway All Stars. Yes, hat show is still on, and yes, I definitely still watch.

I wore this to head to Bistro Campagne over the weekend with Jeff to celebrate our fifth dating-aversary. We both literally forgot what day our dating anniversary was since we have a wedding one to remember now, and really had to think hard to figure out the date. I'm glad we figured it out because dinner was so fun! I had a hard time convincing Jeff on Bistro Campagne because he's not that into French food, but really what he's not into is food that's too fussy. This definitely was not fussy French, more at-home classic French cooking. Plus there was live music, a table by the window overlooking their adorable little patio (take me back during warmer weather, please!) and some champagne on the house to help us celebrate. I might keep up with this whole two anniversaries thing - that is, if I can manage to remember them both!
