BAG: Chanel via Fashionphile

NECKLACE: Gorjana c/o (sold out similar here and here)

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 don’t 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

  1. Did you ever sell this dress? I love it so much and was wondering if you would sell it.

  2. your dressing is so beautiful <3 Love it already
    I also wonder which camera did you use because these photos are just amazing! Perfect colors!

  3. 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

  4. Your best friend if you are learning a language: Duolingo. Free website & app that is fun & seriously so cute & effective. My current obsession haha. Cheers xx

  5. Bonjour,
    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

    1. 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

  6. 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.

    1. 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

    1. It is the most charming town ever! And thanks girl!! You will have to go one day! 🙂

  7. 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

    1. 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.

      1. 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

        1. 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! 🙂

          1. 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!

  8. 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!

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

  9. 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.


    1. 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!

    1. Aw really?! So fun! Yeah its so so close to Geneva, only like 30 minutes away! It is so pretty 🙂

  10. 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

    1. I know I am so bummed its sold out!! And that is so cool that your family is French! Same, I know a little, only enough to get by but I want to be fluent one day 🙂 have a good day girl!

  11. I am so in love with this dress , since the first minute you placed one of these photos on Instagram! I have been looking for it everywhere on the web but didn’t find it 🙁
