Sending out a big ol' thank you to CTA for getting me from point A to point B.

Despite my occasional CTA gripes, the truth is that they get the job done and I always get to where I've gotta go. And thanks to them, I don't have to worry about driving in circles to look for parking or stress about safely navigating city traffic. I spend a lot of time on public transit, so I thought I'd share a little glimpse into what my day to day on it looks like.
Quiero dar las gracias a CTA por ayudarme llegar todos los días a mi destino.

A pesar de mis quejas ocasionales, la verdad es que a final de cuentas, siempre llego. Y gracias a ellos, no me tengo que preocupar en buscar sitios para aparcar o estresarme en los otros preocupaciones de conducir por el centro. Como paso tanto tiempo en el transporte público, pensé daros un vistazo de cómo es un día normal para mí en él.

EN So, although the calendar puts us in Spring, it still feels like winter here in Chicago. Given that, I'm still playing that layering game...and getting better at it every day (because of all that practice).

I wore this look to a book reading event with author Emily Belden at Bodega. Have you been yet? I wanted to wear something femme and sexy to match the feel of the event location.

And although it's been too cold to wear either the crochet top or slip dress on its own, I thought they looked great paired together.

HOW DO YOU LAYER A SLIP DRESS?

Layering slip dresses can be tricky because the wrong combo can create bulk or weird proportions, which is just plain unflattering. I like that this slip dress has a little shape to it, to complement curves. Despite that, I still had to be careful because the material is thin and has a satin finish - which puts seam lines and any bulges on full display. To combat that, I recommend going a size larger on the slip dress so it lays smoothly or opt for one with a thicker material.
ES Aunque el calendario indica que estamos de primavera, se siente como el invierno por aquí en Chicago. Y es por eso que sigo creando looks de capas...y mejorando las combinaciones cada día gracias a esa practica.

Llevé este look a un evento en Bodega con la autora Emily Belden. ¿Habéis estado? Opté por un look femenino y sexy para ir acorde al ambiente del bar.

Por el frío, no puedo llevar ni el top de ganchillo ni el vestido combinación solo, pero juntos creo que crea un look bonito.

¿CÓMO CREAS UN LOOK CON UNA COMBINACIÓN?

Llevar un vestido combinación encima de otras prendas puede ser un poco difícil. Hay que prestar atención a las proporciones. Este vestido combinación tiene un poco de forma, que favorece las curvas. A pesar de eso, tuve que tener cuidado porque es de una tela ligera y con un acabado satinado - lo cual muestra cada bultito. Para combatir eso, recomiendo elegir un vestido combinación de una talle un pelín más grande para asegura un acabado liso o elegir uno de una tela más gruesa.
