Yes, I have been wearing this hat and boots literally everyday. No, I don't care if it's 100 degrees outside. :-) Well, actually....right now it's a beautiful 75 degrees and it "rained" yesterday! BY rain, I mean sprinkle, but still! We hardly ever see water falling from the sky and with the major drought that we are in, it's very much needed. I can only hope that it continues.
Anyway, why can't I stop wearing these items you ask? Because they go with everything! Pencil skirt? Yes. Flowy dress? Yes. Maxi? Yes. Jeans? Yes. See what I mean? In this case, I have it paired with the beautiful Julia dress from the boutique. Julia and I haven't always been the best of friends. In fact, when I started selling clothing, I vowed to never carry this dress because I thought it would be "hard to wear." So I tried on this one and another one (with bows!) from a friend and couldn't believe how pretty it was! It was very flattering and definitely a lot different than what I am used to wearing. I'll be honest, I have some junk in the trunk so I am not always comfortable showing that off. Especially at work. I don't want it to look like I came back from the club. I don't feel that way with this dress. Yes, it is more form fitting than the rest, but it's not so tight that I can't breathe. Now I just have to work on being more confident wearing it!
The print on this dress is so bright and so much fun, so I wanted to tone it down with the accessories, but also give it a more boho feel. My go-to boots and floppy hat made another appearance. I wore a long pendant necklace to elongate the dress shape. Criss-cross rings and dainty bangles finished off the look.
Have a beautiful week!
