Wishing (+ also pretending) I was in Santorini but really just standing in front of a wall next to Free People Cambridge in my favorite summer midi dress. I can't get enough of the beautiful embroidery + open back of this dress. It makes me dream of visiting Greece.

When the summer is hot hot hot like it has been, I can't deal with my leaving my excessively long hair down. I did a French Braided Crown Hair Tutorial late last summer, but this one is so so quick and easy to do, because you don't need to french braid! Simply; part your hair (If you do a side part in the front like I did, do a middle part in the back). Braid both sides and secure with a clear elastic. Pull apart and loosen the braids slightly to give them the a fuller and thicker appearance. Fold the braids over, tuck the ends in and secure with bobby pins (I used 5, but you may need more or less depending on your hair type).

Head to the Free People Cambridge Instagram where I am taking over for the next two days!

  4. How lovely! The dress is so beautiful, it does make you look like a Greek goddess or alternatively as someone who has just walked out Renaissance painting (with the help of that wonderful braid this look is really flawless)
