the floral ruffled dress & denim jacket

slowin' it down with some floral boho vibes.

y'all, it is getting HOT in TEXAS!!! summer isn't even in full swing yet and i'm a sweaty betty. not sure how i will be taking photos during the summer again, early shoots are such a pain. i wish i lived up north, when it's cold, you can layer. but when it's hot, there is only so much you can take off.... like they say... you always want what you can't have. and when you have it you want more. #WORD

this floral dress c/o The Mint Julep Boutique is a great choice for those hot summer days. check out their instagram @shopthemint for bright, boho style spring/summer dresses! this one in particular is strappy, v-neck and v-back, loose (i'm all about the loosey-goosey), a ruffled hem (yep, i twirled in it), and it's a floral print. check x 6. i choose to give this outfit some more springtime love with a denim jacket; my FIRST, whattt? i know. it's insane how i live in TX and went so long without one. it makes a good layer for the cold indoor coffee shops/restaurants. the long necklace (borrowed from mama bear; she's so stylish) also added a little something and the cognac leather accessories fit right in. 

side note: if you haven't seen The Jungle Book, you need to!
"look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities, forget about your worries and your strife...." i mean who remembers watching this on... VHS?!!!!
