If I am being totally honest here I have no idea where I bought this dress or when I bought it. I THINK I bought it around middle school or maybe early high school. What I love about this dress is its ode to a Puebla style dress. I love the eyelet and embroidered detailing that runs along the hemline, sleeves and neckline. My family is from Mexico so I love anything that play a little tribute to my culture. I paired the dress with some wedges in a neutral color because I wanted to the details of the dress to really stand out here. Wearing my hat and sunnies was the perfect touch for such a sunny day and it really gave this outfit a vacation style look.
Guys, my roots are coming in and for those of you who don’t know, I had my hair permanently straightened almost two years ago. You can check it out in this post. I am quite conflicted if I should re-straighten it or just let me natural waves take over. My hair here is the aftermath of drying naturally and me trying to curl the straight parts of my hair to match my roots. Although I do think my curly hair gives me character, something about my straight hair makes me feel a little more me. I am a very indecisive person so we will see what I end up doing. Opinions?
On to my outfit, I am so in love with this yellow floral kimono. It is just so bright and airy and perfect for summer. Since it was a bit chilly I decided to wear it with an old pair of Forever 21 pants. I think they are about two years old and I have definitely been on the lookout for a new pair because these fit me a little too big. I decided to pair it with a white tank to give a monochromatic look and to allow the yellow to just pop!
And the arm party that is currently going on is my total fave! These three gold bracelets are playful and sophisticated and I basically wear them with my watch like everyday.
So here’s the story about my favorite dress. I went into a local boutique near my house looking for an Easter dress back in April and came out with two maxi dresses, this being one of them. Although I fell in love with the fit, color and fabric I just couldn’t get past the length because it made the dress a bit formal. So I took it to get altered and now I can say it is one of my favorite dresses! My friends and family have already seen me in it twice (for my brothers graduation and also his graduation party) which was slightly embarrassing but so worth it! I kept my accessories neutral with dark brown accents. My JewelMint earrings added a touch of elegance to the bohemian style of the dress. And when I am going for a more boho-chic look I like to curl my roots instead of the ends. It’s one of those outfits where you try and make your hair look messy. You know, the cute kind of messy.
