Today has a been a busy but awesome day. I woke up at a decent hour and have been busy as a bee running errands and getting ready for school to start back up next Monday. I swear the break has just not been long enough! This weekend we are hosting a baby shower for my best friend Erica who is literally about to pop so Nightrider and I met up with her and her family for lunch to discuss last minute details. We had a lovely lunch outside on the patio at a restraunt in Downtown Boise and I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to actually wear something worth posting and to get some shots somewhere other then my neighborhood. After lunch we had to run some more errands including hitting the bookstore so I wanted to make sure that while I looked nice I also was comfortable and up for being out in the heat and for doing a bit of walking. I knew that the Gloria Dress sent to me by my wonderful friends at Sealed With A Kiss Designs would be the perfect dress for today!

I have been absolutely in love with the Gloria Dress from Sealed With A Kiss Designs since I saw it in mushroom on my friend and model Denise Bidot in their Spring/Summer lookbook. I knew that this dress had to be mine but mushroom really isn’t my color so I was stoked when it came out in this lovely Silver Bangle (also available in mushroom, black and wine). I recieved my Gloria Dress at the beginning of summer and I honestly wear it all the time. I have worn it to BBQ’s, house parties, out to the movies with my girlfriend and even on simple trips to the grocery store. It is super comfortable and a nice quality material that is nice and airy but also still structured and will be capable of carrying over into the colder months with layering. My Gloria is a size 3x and it fits great all over, except its a little roomy in my bust. The elastic waist is perfect and I can wear the dress differently depending on where I deceide to let the elastic hit me which is awesome for verstatility in my wardrobe. It is also a nice length that is perfect for many occassions and doesn’t have me feeling constricted in my bendability
For today’s look I decided to wear the waist a bit higher under my bust and then to belt the dress with a black maracrame belt gifted to me from B&Lu. It was a perfect pairing with my Torrid sandals to keep things easy, breezy and a bit boho chic with the look. I honeslty would have liked to have paired this look with my feather earrings but I think I lost them in NYC so I went with some good old standby dangly earrings gifted to me from Torrid. I knew I wanted a little bit more to the look so as I ran out the door I added this heart and key necklace that I got in a swag bag at Full Figured Fashion Week that is from Charming Charlie. Overal I felt great in this look and thought it was perfect for my busy but fun day!
