Dress: Madewell (this season’s)

I am all about purchasing items that have staying power through multiple seasons. This Madewell dress was one of the few garments I have purchased at full retail price and was definitely hesitant about it at the time. However, it has proved to be one of my most comfortable clothing pieces, and I have found countless ways to style it from Spring to Fall and Winter.

I particularly love that it is collared which allows for some fun pattern mixing, and that the material is thin enough to be layered with just a light sweater. The black and white polka dot lends itself to pairings with almost any color; from vibrant blues to neutrals like silver and gold.

In other news, i’m really getting into blow drying out my hair to give it this swooping, voluminous effect. I have been trying out countless haircare products and am thinking about doing a post about it soon. Stay tuned!
