Let’s get this week started!
How was everyone’s weekend? I was gone all last week at a work conference where our brands debut the Fall product and new launches. I hated not being able to work on the blog. After the 5 days of back to back to back meetings, I finally got some rest and a renewed strength. So much to do but gotta keep going!
Since summer is such a freeing season, I wanted to make sure my inner bohemian is satisfied before the cooler weather starts to kick in. Although I don’t wear it often, this bohemian dress is one of my favorites.
I bought this boho/peasant inspired dress in “The Alley”, a shopping area in downtown Los Angeles, when we were visiting during a family reunion trip. I then wore it when we dropped my younger brother off at college in Atlanta, Georgia. I love when clothing is tied to memory and meaning.
Just asked my brother what year he started college. [My memory is starting to get bad, okay.] This dress is at least 8 years old y’all. Good thing trends come back full circle!

Haute tip: Pair solid accessories with solid clothing. My dress is solid purple, so my jewelry is solid as well. I wanted a contrast, so I picked a burnt orange ring and hot pink earrings. Because they are one color instead of patterned, the jewelry compliments the dress instead of distracting.
