Pleats, Tassels, and Laces

I recently discovered the brand J.O.A. and I am in love. They have the cutest dresses and tops while maintaining an affordable price and good quality. This dress was only $75! I have favorited so many of their items on Shopbop in the past week–– I am addicted, and this pleated dress is no exception.

I decided to pair it with my fave lace up flats and my black crossbody–– usually, I opt for outfits with more color, but I like the look of just black and white (and red... I was so sunburned during this shoot that I couldn't even put on makeup. Note to self: wear sunscreen).
