You all have probably noticed that, most of the time, my wardrobe skews towards the minimal. Jeans, button down, heels; I've got the uniform down. But occasionally, I like to squeeze myself into a dress and heels, tote around a clutch, and feel like a girly girl. And with so many fun new hotels (like the Kimpton Everly, pictured here), restaurant openings, and events, there are plenty of reasons for me to dress up. One dress that has weathered the storm of many of these goings-on is this maxi from Avec Les Filles-- it's plenty breezy with the lightweight fabric and slits, but the ruffles and polka dots lend it an elevated romance. Perfect for day-to-night, vacations, and just lounging around a hotel. Shop the look below, and let me know what you think of it in the comments!
