When it comes to work wear, I have a very different definition than most. I don’t work in an office and don’t have the daily need for pencil skirts and blazers (though I do love them!). One of the best parts about my job is that I get to wake up and wear whatever I want. Somedays that’s cut-off jeans shorts, booties (I just picked up these and ordered a half size smaller than normal) and a slouchy tee and other days it’s a girly dress and heels — it just depends on what I have scheduled that day and how I feel when I wake up.
Throwing on a dress is definitely one of my favorite options because it’s so simple, doesn’t require too much planning and is super comfortable. Ideally, this Rent the Runway dress would be my go to ‘work outfit’ for summer. It’s casual, light-weight and so bright — I’m also in love with this print. It’s perfect for a day of work that turns into a night at a patio for drinks.
If you live in Chicago and weren’t already aware, Rent the Runway is opening a storefront in the Gold Coast! I’ve been using RTR for years now for everything from weddings, formal events, cocktail parties and special dates. I’m thrilled that I’ll now be able to go into the store and try on the dress before the event to make sure it fits perfectly! That being said, I’ve never ever had a problem with my dress fitting since they allow you to rent two sizes, so no need to worry if you don’t live here.
The Gold Coast store opens on April 30 (tomorrow!) at 710 North Wabash Avenue. It’s open Monday through Friday from 11am to 8pm and weekends from 10am to 7pm. I love the late hours for those last minute nights where you need something incredible to wear in a hurry!
To celebrate the opening of the Rent the Runway Chicago store, I’ve teamed up with RTR to give you $30 off orders of $90 or more — just use code: RTRFOXANDSHE when checking out! If you haven’t checked out Rent The Runway yet, I highly recommend it and if you’re in Chicago, make sure to stop by the store soon!
