birthday dress

Photos taken outside of Eden

Hello!  It's been a busy week of birthday celebrations and I'm finally coming up for air!  My actual birthday was Tuesday - Patrick and I planned on dinner at Eden, a restaurant in the West Loop I've been wanting to checkout both for the food and palm leaf mural outside.  If you live in Chicago, you may recall that the weather on Tuesday was miserable - dark, cold and rainy.  So yes, all the above photos were taken in the freezing rain but they had this great bright lighting outside that helped with how dark it was.

You may recognize this dress from last weeks long sleeved dresses feature.  Well I couldn't stop thinking about it and knew it would be the perfect birthday dress, so I treated myself to it!  It's made of a fantastic thick, almost bandage-type material that really holds it shape plus it keeps you warm in cooler temps.  It has subtle pink stripes above each of the black stripes which I really love too.  I received so many compliments throughout the day!  Can we also talk about this gorgeous bag?!  I've been looking for a pink bag, and the structured details on this one combined with the discounted price made it so I couldn't stop thinking about it!  Another treat to myself with some birthday money!  The Port color is also gorgeous.

Thank you for reading and thank you for all the birthday love!
