Bohemian Summer

bohemian mini dress
Today I'm linking up for Delirious Rhapsody's Spring Fashion week!

For the first day I knew I wanted to take an outfit Deanna wore and and show how I'd wear it. We have a similar style so I knew I could find something in her wardrobe that I also owned! 
So, here is Deanna wearing a boho pullover minidress for fall. Isn't she cute? I love her stripped sweater. It's spring now, so here is how I would rework this piece with warm weather in mind! 
I kept the braids from her first picture and also wore black leggings, through I opted for a knee length in order to keep cool. I usually have a hat on, (I love hats) and I decided to wear my floral shoes that my husband bought me last spring when we were dating.

I just bought this frumpy bag at Goodwill and I take it everywhere. It fits 4 balls of yarn easily and a notebook, my cell phone, and other female accessories.

Full sun VS. Full Shade
  • When taking pictures outside, it is best to keep to the shadows for an even distribution of light, if you don't know how to manipulate your camera settings.

You guys really had the exact same dress? That's pretty cool.

hah! my first thought was, 'i have that shirt!' which i think i might mentioned once before when you posted it, but now i can't remember. but then i see MYSELF looking back at me. :) i used to take my pictures outside, but our backyard is small, and between the sun and trying to avoid dog poop, i started going upstairs instead.

i think it looks great with the leggings. i don't own any knee length leggings, but i think maybe i should. and i really like how you added some fun shoes to go with it!

What a great top! I love the lace trim- that extra touch makes so much of a difference! I agree with Deanna, too, the shoes are adorable!

I think it would also look great over a pair of dark skinny jeans. But I'm jealous you have warm weather and green leaves on the trees! It's still cold where I live (Wisconsin).

Also, I LOVE your Totoro background!

It's so cool to see how two people wear one piece like this. Those are some great shoes!

LOVE your thick braids, and such a luscious red! so pretty. i also really like that your shorts/leggings have lace on the end -- such a fun girly touch.

Awww! I love it! What a great idea, to recreate one of Deanna's outfits. And you just look so darling :)
