    Embroidered Off The Shoulder Dress | Chicago Fashion and Style Blogger

    embroidered off the shoulder dress

    I know, I know. I’m clogging up my blog with ANOTHER off the shoulder dress and I’m not stopping anytime soon! I’ve ALWAYS been a sucker for OTS dresses and halters. So needless to say, I’m eating up this trend. Obviously! Short post tonight. Absolutely exhausted from taking the boys to the splash pad and chasing Cole around the pool! Getting them ready for Muai in two weeks!!!

    Chasing The Pretty Light

    mom to three gorgeous natural light

    Happiest Monday! I have guests in town so I’ve been a bit busy. Wanted to drop by here and say a quick hi! These photos taken of me and the boys are taken across the street from where we live. We shoot there a lot. Partly because it’s super easy but mainly because the lighting there is just stunning. We’ve never, EVER had a bad shoot there. When you have good light, it’s seriously such a blessing for photographers. We can shoot there alllll day if you let us. So for the next few months, don’t be surprised if you see me at this location!

    The Hardest Birthday Week, Ever

    floral full skirt and white topLast week was my birthday week. It was also the week Cole, my third, was teething. His gums were red and swollen as FOUR molars were poking through all at once. I tried everything to help ease his pain. Including alternating Tylenol and Ibuprofen. It was just awful hearing him scream all day, attached to my hip, for six days straight. This past Saturday, when I have all day backup from the Giant, was when his pain went away. It was like a light switch and he was a different baby. He’s back to his super happy playful self. Even today, he was playing this game where he wants to be chased. He runs away from me, laughing and thumping his chest with his hands, and once I caught him, he runs away and starts the game all over again. I texted the Giant and told him its such a relief to see him happy and laughing again. Last week was the LONGEST WEEK, EVER.
