Last weekend I headed downtown to Silversmith Hotel in Chicago. I was graciously invited by Janet Mandell of Fashionaholic and Mia Bossi, to a breakfast chat with special guest Jacey Duprie of  Damsel in Dior

I decided to go with a striped pencil skirt, black blouse, and amazing jeweled heels. I played off the silver in the shoes by adding all silver and black jewelry.

The set up for this breakfast was so beautiful! We started off with some mimosas and had a chance to say hello to all our blogger friends who were in attendance. There were also mini set ups by T&J Designs, Mia Bossi, Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique, and a little area with flash tattoos too.
I mean, the only thing better then breakfast with a great group of women is adding mini shopping areas to the mix!

The breakfast was super yummy, seriously the food at the restaurant in the Silversmith hotel was outstanding!
 During the first course Janet asked Jacey questions and she gave us advice on social media and blogging. We were also able to ask her any questions we had as well. It was so helpful and fun to be part of this breakfast chat.

What do you think of my "breakfast in the city" look? Are you a fan of the Damsel in Dior blog? Jacey was seriously so nice and down to earth in person. I love when you meet bloggers you look up to and their personalities make you like them more!
