I bought this dress from Madewell over the summer, and I've worn it countless times. It's actually designed to be a swimsuit coverup, but the color and fabric are luxe enough to dress up. Especially with the greatest slingback pumps ever ($70!), and my all-time favorite leather jacket. The weather has officially turned cold, so this might be my last chance to wear a dress without tights for the next few months.
The best thing about having longer hair is the ability to wear it in different ways! I love following Amber Fillerup's blog for hair inspiration, especially when it comes to braids. This french braid is such a simple style and is perfect for those days when I wake up late and don't want to shower.
