Braided Hair, Don't Care

DSC_4842
My mom accompanied me on a trip to Chicago last weekend and this meant: two horrible singers together in a car arguing over what music to listen to for too many hours, her asking me uncomfortable personal questions in which I delight in telling her the truth and tiring shopping trips where she tells me how much she dislikes what I like and I do the same. It was fun.
For the drive back to the mitten, I knew the weather would be much warmer and so I styled an ombre shirt dress with a jean jacket and pink heels, upon my mom's suggestion. It was a comfortable travel outfit and I can't wait to wear the dress more this summer to the beach!

My mom braided my hair, which is so much easier to do when it's straight. I just got it colored to more of my natural color. I want low maintenance hair, but at the same time, I miss something a little more exciting. We'll see how long this lasts.

Beautiful, Andrea!! How I love this outfit. Dresses + denim jackets have been my go-to as of late, and your strappy heels are just so lovely with this outfit. Aw, your trip with you mom sounds too cute!! xo

Ok a couple confessions:

1. I saw these images and immediately missed you. Such a fun weekend hanging out. (and prom pose from now on, it is.... haha)

2. Saw that you posted a Lulu's dress same time that I did and got slightly jealous because your photos are way more amazing.

3. You have the best shoes.

4. Is that the Maybelline lipstick??

5. Come back to Chi-town soon please. :)

Your new hair colour looks amazing, but like you, I get bored of any colour quickly....no matter how nice it is!

I seriously LOVE that ombre shirt dress. I haven't seen anything like it before, and it's a great new way to rock the trend.
