On Sunday night, Rob walked into our bathroom and said he some good news and bad news and asked which I wanted to hear first. I said bad news.
He announced that according to his weather app, we would likely not see the sun for the next 10 day—what?! The good news is that it was going to be in the balmy 30s! Not sure that’s really good news, haha, but it could be worse.
Despite knowing how the grey weather totally affects my mood, I’ve been keeping busy and staying positive and reminding myself how magical those first few days of spring truly are. I even went as far as doing a little spring shopping recently and one of my favorite pieces is this long boho dress that I snagged from Free People.
I haven’t been able to wear it much in Chicago, but I did wear it in Dallas for my sisters’ bridal luncheon and know that it will get lots of use as it warms up and my belly grows.

Without the belt on, it’s very flowy, even tent-like, which means I’ll be able to wear it throughout my pregnancy and after. The fabric isn’t thick though, so it hangs really nicely even if you don’t pair a belt with it.
Last week, I popped into one of my favorite places to hide out in winter, the Lincoln Park Conservatory, and snapped some pics that looked more fitting for spring than how it actually looks outside. Going in that place is always a breathe of fresh air and literally melts my stresses away. If you haven’t been yet, I highly suggest you go!
When I’ve been wearing this boho dress, I’ve been pairing it with this brown suede belt to cinch it in at the waist and give it more shape. Since it’s still chilly, these booties have been my go-to shoes of choice, but I also tried it on with sneakers and a black belt here and it looked so cute—perfect for mom life!
Is it still winter where you live? What is your favorite part about spring?
