Weekender: Born to Be Mod

Weekends are truly a gift — time to regroup, refresh, and make time for what we ignore in our busy weekday lives.  For me, this means a Saturday spent exploring sweet home Chicago, camera in tow. There’s something therapeutic about capturing the day in pictures, my memory card becoming a digital journal of post grad life. Between great people watching and world famous architecture, my appetite for visual inspiration has never been more satisfied.

So, how’s a budding Lewis and Clark to dress? In my Weekender best pick, my vote goes out to the Mod Squad with this Mod-cut dress and comfortable flats. It’s 60s style with all the comforts of 2012. Get the look and you might just find that you were Born to Be Mod.
