Last weekend I got to attend a brunch with my favorite blogging group, the Windy City Blogger Collective. It’s a group of bloggers from around Chicago getting together to make our blogs bigger and better. You may remember them from the Blog Your Best 2016 conference I attended earlier this year. Basically, they’re amazing.

The venue for our brunch was this amazing loft, DL Loft, which is an event space you can rent out for just about anything from photo shoots to dinners and more! The space is simply stunning! And can totally be booked overnight. I’m not saying I want to spend my wedding night here, but I wouldn’t mind waking up on my first morning of being married in this simply stunning venue.

It’s a two floor loft in the heart of Lakeview. Exposed brick everywhere, a gigantic wall of windows creating the most gorgeous lighting ever, beautifully styled furniture and decor, a back garden that’s every blogger’s dream, and a fully loaded chef’s kitchen make this space everything I’ve ever needed.

We had donuts from Doodles Donuts that we got to decorate ourselves with brightly colored icing. Mine didn’t turn out that great since it took me a little while to get the hang of the icing but we got there. And they were GOOD! Mine was filled with an amazing chocolate cream that oozed everywhere and made a giant delicious mess.

A mimosa bar by Tastings.com, braids by Stylisted, and an amazing host in Debbie and this space was absolute perfection. I want to move in! Or at least host a bunch of events. I can almost guarantee that this space will show up again on the blog (did I hear someone in the back say Blogiversary Party?!). Enjoy the photos!
