purple rain

back to boho today in what is most definitely one of my favorite purchases this summer.  i have worn this dress more times than i can count.  obviously, i love my leopard prints, but it is quite possibly the most comfortable dress ive ever slipped myself into.  for today's time around, i dressed it up a bit with these lace-up sandals and faux leather fringe jacket.  i added a few more touches of black with my cross body and ray-bans and layered on lots of gold accessories.  my wood bangles are both so old, but i just love way they play off the prints in the dress.  a few pops of neon give it the just enough punch with my poppy manicure, cobalt stone necklace, and lime lace trim bralette.  in speaking of undergarments, i ALWAYS opt to wear them!!!  (and HELLO!! you should too!!!)  i know it can be tough sometimes if something is too shear or too strappy, but that just calls for some creativity!!  there are so many options these days, from beautiful bralettes to sticky boobs, you can always find a fix.  i tend to go the "let it show" route, and buy up as many pretty, bright, lacey bras i can find.  they're made to be seen, and i let them do just that!!
