Remember when I had mentioned I purchased a dress to wear to a wedding in Chicago? Well, this is it!
Last fall my friend, Lauren, was wearing an awesome gray tunic from Vinnie Louise. The tunic was a perfect mix of casual and cool and when she told me the price tag, I couldn't believe it! Good quality at an affordable price is often hard to come by. A few days later, Jordan and I spent an afternoon in East Nashville purchasing a few Christmas presents from the Vinnie Louise store before going home for Thanksgiving.
This spring, when it came time to buy an outfit for our friend's wedding, I immediately thought of VL. Jordan and a friend founded a streetwear clothing company and ran it for five years, so I know how much effort it takes to keep a thing growing. So whenever I am able to buy local and personally support an artist or proprietor, I am all for it!
The weather in Chicago was colder than it was when we took these photos, so on the day of the wedding, I wore navy tights and brown riding boots from J. Crew. I felt really comfortable and put together! A win win.
I can't wait to style this dress with sandals and an easy braid for summer nights. Despite the long sleeves, the cotton fabric is pretty light and airy.
