Boho Dress for Brunch

August 26, 2015

How fun is this boho dress look? I wore this to brunch on Saturday with my main man. I have a major weakness for brunch. In general, I am a pretty healthy eater, but brunch is hard to resist. I mean, biscuits?! You may not know this about me, but I used to be on the heavier side. I got made fun of some as a kid. Man, those names stick. I have NO willpower. My willpower has to start at the grocery store. Russ and I literally keep nothing unhealthy in our house because if it’s there, I eat it. We have a good routine of bringing healthy lunches to work, cooking healthy dinners at home, and then if we want a treat, going out for it. How do you stay healthy?

Anyway, back to the outfit. I loved this boho dress when I saw it online at Choies. I really wanted the white version, but since fall is nearing, I opted for black. I paired it with my hat (I might be on a kick… last seen here), my lace up sandals (last seen here), and my Chloe dupe bag (last seen here). I think it will be fun to pair with booties as the weather continues to cool. I should also mention that my ring and bracelets are all from Purple Peridot (as most of my jewelry is – my favorite!).

    Darn, I forgot you had a special code at Purple Peridot! I have ordered a couple of things from them, but usually on the daily deal so I don’t know if I can double up coupon codes. 🙂 ANYWAY, love your boho black dress and the pairing with the cognac bag and sandals!

    Loving this look! I actually almost bought a dress exactly like this, but the other was maxi length. I love it with the hat and sandals. You totally pull off boho so well! Also, I share the same past as you. I was (and kind of am) heavy when I was younger and I had such a hard time. I really remember every single name that every person ever called me. You are absolutely gorgeous inside and out, and those names should mean nothing to you now, except to help you grow and learn how to empower other people!

    That dress looks just like the FP dress for a fraction of the cost! I wish I had more will power but I really don’t-I love treats! But that explains why you look in great shape!

    I would have never guessed that you were ever on the heavier side. You look so amazing! I try not to keep certain unhealthy foods around either…like pringles. I gobble those up to fast. lol. Your dress is so cute! I love this outfit!

    I love the bold pattern on this dress! And the little camel bag you added is beautiful. We always have to keep healthy food in our house too. I have the biggest sweet tooth!

    I am the same way with brunch and food in general – if it is in my house – it gets eaten! We are really good about stocking our fridge and pantry with healthy stuff now – I pretty much crave the healthy stuff over the junk now. Loving this boho style – you look effortless and chic as always!
