As Instagram friends may know, Nick and I spent the past few days in Chicago visiting friends, eating our way around the city and admiring all the architecture. The food in general has been fantastic but I must mention Uncle Mike’s to brunch lovers – their hearty Filipino breakfast (garlic fried rice, eggs, meat plus some traditional sides) hit the spot with Nick lapping up nearly 2 plates, and is perfect for recovering after a night out. Wedding planning had fallen by the wayside for me so I was thrilled that my sweet friend booked my first bridal dress appointment during this vacation - I can't wait to share more about various styles after trying a few more places, in case fellow brides-to-be might find it helpful.
We had a variety of activities planned and limited luggage space, so I relied on a few comfy pieces that could be worn and reworn with small tweaks. For strolling and going out at night, I wore this flowy dress with low-heeled (very stable...I prefer these to many of my flat shoes) BP booties. For a setting with formal dress code I swapped the booties out for heels plus a light jacket.
