Hello my lovelies!

Aleksandra CulaficIn the beginning of June my sister (who is also my photographer) and I went to Chicago.  I had a mission, to shoot 3 looks (minimum) and to have a fun day with my sister.  We always valet the car at either Gibsons or Tavern on Rush and stick around that general area.  This is a much easier option as opposed to driving around the city looking for parking on the street.  That my friends could take hours. Chicago

On our way into the city, we were on Ohio Street and a parking spot opened up miraculously.  For at least one year I have wanted to come take a few photos in front of this flamingo wall but every time I drove past it, I couldn’t park.  However, on this day we were able to get a great spot so naturally I took advantage of this rare opportunity.  You know what they say, “if life gives you lemons…”

Chicago ChicagoMy outfit was fairly simple for this perfect day in the city of Chicago.  I got this cute basic white dress from Zara.  I love how light weight and simple it is.  There is nothing better than a basic white dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.   These shoes were a steal, I got them at Marshalls for about $30 dollars and they are Steve Madden.  My jacket is so old, its from GAP and I absolutely love it and my sunnies are Chanel.  I surprisingly didn’t need the jacket but I always bring layers to Chicago even in the summer.  There have been many times where I go into the city an regret not bringing some layers.  Let’s just say I have learned my lesson. Aleksandra Culafic Aleksandra Culafic
