Did you check out yesterday’s post? A travel diary + recommendations from The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort + St. Simons Island. The post kind of leads into today’s as I am styling a casual midi dress for a vacation day full of exploring. Which could also, easily be worn for a Saturday with a long to do list of errands to be run. This midi dress is perfect for the current fall temperatures we’re experiencing. With the midi length that offers leg coverage and three quarter sleeves, you’ll stay warm throughout the day.

For the cooler mornings and evenings, add a simple layer. To play up the casual vibe, I opted for a cropped zip up hoodie. Which I just happened to find at J.Crew Factory at a serious discount {under $25}. To continue the casual vibe, I reached for my go to backpack and white sneakers. If you don’t have a backpack yet, you need one. No Jansport, an updated, stylish, everyday kind of backpack. They’re seriously the best for busy days or days on the go. You can load them up, throw them on your back, and go. So easy, comfortable, and cute! Shop some of my top picks here

Are you a fan of the dress + sneaker look? The trend is definitely huge right now, as it has been for a couple of seasons. However, I know not everyone loves it. Honestly, it took me a little while to jump on board but now I am truly obsessed. Therefore, I would love to hear your thoughts and if you’ve hopped on the bandwagon yet, have been on it for awhile now, or aren’t a fan of the trend. If you’re a blogger, share your looks in the comments below, I love seeing how others style trends! 

P.S. don’t forget to check out yesterday’s travel diary for The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort + St. Simons Island. Plus this cozy beach look and these adorable matching sweatshirts – both looks are from the trip!
