Flower Empower

Long time, no chat! I’m officially a Floridian, y’all (well, not officially, there’s still some legal things I need to iron out to make it official.. but still). And lemme tell you, moving to Florida in the summer may not have been my smoothest move. It’s so HOT! I’m still having a bit of a hard time adjusting, and an even harder time coming up with cute outfits when all I want to wear is a t-shirt and shorts to keep as cool as possible.

Thanks to Mint Julep Boutique, however, I’ve been able to add this breezy Flower Empower dress to my repertoire, and I’m obsessed. Stick with me ’til the end of this post and there may or may not be a giveaway for you to enter! (Hint: there is.)

I was ecstatic when Mint Julep Boutique contacted me to select a piece of theirs to style on my blog, but you wouldn’t believe how hard of a time I had narrowing my favorites down to just one piece! There’s so many gorgeously unique pieces available on their site, and you can bet I’ll be a repeat customer.

I’m thoroughly enjoying incorporating Florida’s foliage into my blog shoots! And it doesn’t hurt to have a live-in photographer/visionary to create photos like these for me. 😉

The model wearing this dress on #ShopTheMint’s site has me longing for a lacy bralette to wear underneath this beauty!  It adds such a fun touch to the dress, and I’m definitely on the hunt for one!

One thought on “Flower Empower

  1. Yeah… Florida in the summer is not my favorite. That’s the main thing that keeps us from moving down. Georgia is hot enough! The dress is PERFECT for Florida weather though!
