Fashion Friday – Long Purple Boho Dress

Hap-Hap-Happy Fashion Friday!

I got this dress on super duper clearance last season and it is my current fav.  I love little hippie, boho inspired pieces especially when visiting downtown Asheville.

The sweetheart neckline and tiered layers are just enough details to really make the piece special.   Also notice how the lining underneath only goes to my knees.  It makes it really light and airy to wear for summer.

I wore this the other weekend when the Hubs and I were going to dinner downtown.  We ended up at Bouchon, a local French Restaurant.  We had our first date there many moons ago so it always feels special to go back.  I’ll often request the same table we sat at just for old times sake.

I’ve also worn this dress out for a more casual evening with my denim vest!  It all works so well together. Whether you live in a hippie (and I mean that in an endearing, best possible way) town or big city I highly recommend some fun dresses like this for the season!

Just to keep it real… those curls fell out approximately 2.5 seconds after we took those photos! At least I tried?

Have a wunderful weekend everyone!

    Enjoyed your post Julie, and love the little delicate flowers on this boho dress, Romantic too, and looks so fresh and breezy for Asheville’s summer days. Dont worry I have to lock my hair down with hairspray for pics otherwise, humidity wins!

    That dress looks super cute on you. But I am so darn short I could never pull it off. I tried one on earlier this spring and I was just tripping over it.

      AWWW!!! If it makes you feel any better I tried on a dozen rompers the other day and I was too tall for ALL of them. Going to have to order a Tall one online. 🙂
