strapless boho sun dress
This weekend was quite a roller coaster – some really fun moments mixed with some pretty crappy ones – so please forgive the lack of hilariously clever & amusing commentary today.
My mom bought me this sun dress for $14.99 at Burlington Coat Factory (they have a TON of cute sun dresses right now, fyi):
Smocked & stretchy, this dress by Speed Control (size M) is beyond comfy. Black shrug: White House Black Market. Flip flops (necessary due to some HORRIBLE, inflamed mosquito bites on my feet): Havaianas that I got on serious sale at Gap a while back (I got the ‘Slim’ style, not the regular, which doesn’t appear on Gap’s site but can be found elsewhere, like Zappos).
I like that the elastic part of the top is wider/longer than most – instead of just the bust being elasticized, this one is stretchy down to the waist, creating a more flattering silhouette and downplaying that potential maternity aspect of an empire waist. I also love the colors and boho look of the print, which has a slightly Moroccan feel to it, I think.
Glimpse of the earrings: American Eagle. And I really love the crap out of this necklace, partially because of what it is and where it came from. First of all, it’s a cool & unique look, semi lariat, I guess? I also dig birds (guilty of falling into that trend for sure), and I think it’s just plain pretty. As for what it is? It’s Disney. Part of the Alice in Wonderland merchandise. And I got it for $5 at Walmart. Yup. I actually loved almost all the movie tie-in jewelry; it was all really cute and didn’t scream Disney or Alice. They also had a cute little rabbit ring, with the rabbit “jumping” across your finger… but it looked a little too much like the rabbit was humping your finger, so I passed on that.
