Coffee and the Prettiest $50 Lace Dress

I have seen this fabulous location on my instagram feed and based on the tag location I thought it was nearby.  Long story short, my new social media assistant and I ventured out to take a pic at this coffee shop thinking, it is nearby and will be a quick shoot! 

Lace Dress ($52 Style steal)

Neon Yellow Pumps

Valentino Bag (old)

Ombre Wing Earrings (love these)

Anyways, this coffee shop, Asado Coffee, has many locations!  In my haste of life, I only looked at the closest one and when we we arrived – I’m like, “This is not the place!”.  After some more digging we realized we were like miles (20 min) from this location above.  Well a 10 min. shoot became over a hour because once we were out and about, we had to find it!  If you are in Chicago, click here for the mapped location.  Isn’t it a great backdrop and in general a hidden gem.  

I loved the pics we got so it was all worth it.  Coffee was nice and strong and thank you to my new social media manager for shooting it!  If you love blogs, she writes one as well and she is the sweetest.  Check out her blog (she is a newlywed)!

Happy week, still recovering from a cold and so are my kids.  I can’t believe it is November, this year has flown by.  Didn’t 2015 just start?
