NECKLACE: Gorjana c/o

I have been trying to learn French (I took some classes but only remembered how to order food haha) and since I have started again I can’t stop thinking about Annecy! Its seriously my favorite place on the planet and I day dream about owning a house on the lake there one day. I never shared these photos we took there and figured I would share them now because the scenery is amazing and I hope all of you get to go visit here one day. The dress I am wearing is actually sold out.. but the link above links to some of Torn by Ronny Kobo’s amazing pieces.

I only curled my hair once the six weeks we were in Europe and so these dutch braids were a staple for me. It is the perfect do for when you are in a rush and dont have time to curl or even wash.. it hides the grease pretty well… I would know :) I made a tutorial on how I do these, even though it is simple, I do have a couple things I do differently so I will share that when my new site (just BFB but updated) finnnnallllly launches. Hopefully in the next couple weeks, I am crossing my fingers! Hope everyone has a good Wednesday and thanks for reading! oxox

    This dress is so pretty, too bad it’s sold out!! I love your hair like that and braids do hide the grease when you can’t wash it that day, love it!! I definitely would love to visit this place one day, my moms side of the family is french and I can speak a little and understand it so that always helps when you go to a country with that language :)

    Sincerely Miss Ash

    I love Annecy. We went there about 10 years ago when my in-laws were living in Geneva for a while. It is so beautiful. I love your braids and dress – the whole look.

  11. Lauren December 11, 2013 at 11:47 am Permalink

    How come when I click the link I cannot find your dress anywhere? I have been searching for it for awhile and I cannot find that style and print.


    • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:44 am Permalink

      Hey girl! The dress is sold out so as I stated in the text in the post, I just linked to the designer of the dress and his other pieces! Sorry about that!

  12. Liem Nguyen December 11, 2013 at 11:49 am Permalink

    Love the outfit Amber!! You look amazing as always. It’s awesome to hear you’re learning French again, I’m have a degree in French if you ever need any help!! LOVE your blog!

    • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:43 am Permalink

      Thanks so much! Ah I am jealous you have a degree in French, lucky girl! Wish I would have studied it in school! xx

  14. Nina December 11, 2013 at 1:55 pm Permalink

    Love the shoes!

  15. Holly M. December 11, 2013 at 5:15 pm Permalink

    Love the whole look, especially the necklaces! So cute how they’re layered. I wasn’t able to find the other necklace on the Gorjana website…is it Gorjana? Let me know! Xo

    • Sara B December 11, 2013 at 5:27 pm Permalink

      I couldn’t find it either?!?! Im wondering the same thing. Hopefully we can get a hint. Great photo shoot! Hope to hear soon, happy holidays.

      • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:40 am Permalink

        Hey Sara! I am not sure if you read the text in the post but it is sold out! The link just links to the designers other collections! Sorry about that! Have a good weekend though xx

        • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:41 am Permalink

          Oh whoops I just saw Holly’s comment and realized you were talking about the necklace not the dress! So, that necklace is actually old, so I just linked to the site! But yes the necklace is Gorjana! :)

          • Lily B December 13, 2013 at 8:55 am Permalink

            Hi Ladies!
            The necklaces on the purple cord is actually one from my collection, Lily B. & Co. It is the Topaz in a Row, and it can be found here: http://lilybandco.com/singles/topaz-in-a-row

            I’m not sure if this is what you were referring to, but hopefully this helps! Have a wonderful day! x

          • Holly M. December 13, 2013 at 11:41 am Permalink

            Hi Amber,

            Thank you, I was actually referring to the necklace from Lily B and co.

            Thank you Lily for proving the link, beautiful necklaces! I’ve noticed this necklace in several postings and am happy to finally know where to get it!

          • Sara B December 15, 2013 at 12:57 am Permalink

            Got it now! Thanks Amber and Lily B.
            Great weekend.

    This town looks so charming! I can see how you would fall in love with it. You have the perfect outfit to match:)

      It is the most charming town ever! And thanks girl!! You will have to go one day! :)

      Thanks girl you are so sweet always!

  18. Stefani December 11, 2013 at 9:47 pm Permalink

    I am SO bummed that this dress is sold out!! It’s gorgeous and I love the length. I’m also very tall (5’10) so when it comes to dresses I’m often turning them into oversized shirts with leggings haha.

    • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:38 am Permalink

      Stefani! Ah girl we share the same problem! It is so freaking hard to find long dresses- so annoying!!! I know I am bummed this dress is sold out as well :( I am setting up an online shop though to sell pieces like this I have only worn once or twice so stay tuned for that and maybe you can snag it! xx

  19. Frederique December 12, 2013 at 12:58 am Permalink

    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago and after having gone through all the archives I am now a regular reader. Congratulations on a beautiful blog. I hardly ever comment on the blogs I follow but I just wanted to take a few seconds to thank you for making me appreciate what I have. While I usually go on the internet to dream about wonderful clothes, faraway places, fabulous interiors, today you made me realize that sometimes dreamy is just around the corner. I live in Geneva and get to go to Annecy, someone’s “favorite place on the planet”, whenever I want. This makes me feel so lucky !! Merci

    • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:37 am Permalink

      Frederique! Thank you so much for that sweet comment!! I know, I sometimes take for granted the beautiful place I live in as well! But I am so jealous you live so close to Annecy! I lived there last summer and visited with my husband this summer and it is my favorite place, I want to live there one day! Thanks again for your inspiring comment! xoxo

  20. kade December 12, 2013 at 11:38 am Permalink

    I can’t wait for more of your hair tutorials! They are the best!

    • amber December 13, 2013 at 8:28 am Permalink

      Glad you like them, I always feel so silly doing them! xx

    Hey Amber,

    I absolutely love your site and have spent all kinds of time trying to find the tutorial for these braids. Going on vacation in a few weeks and I can see this being a staple. Did you post the video yet? PS I know you feel silly doing them but the tutorials are soo helpful and you are a total natural!

    Thanks so much! xo
