Chicago has a way of turning even the most glorious “seeming” of days into garbage. Sunny and seventy five might be accompanied by a strong wind. A light breeze and a perfect crispness in the air can be met with chilly rain and gloomy skies for days.
I think this is due in part to living so close to Lake Michigan. I hear the suburbs experience warmer and sunnier summers. Nonetheless, I end up wearing oddly juxtaposed pieces like boots and tights with a light, short sleeve dress that leave the outfit feeling a bit unbalanced.
Whatever… it worked well for the day I wore it, so I’m blaming the confusing style on equally confused weather.
