tunic dress

Happy 1st day of July!! I seriously can’t believe it’s already July, I feel like I was just bundled up by the Christmas tree daydreaming about summer.  Trying to stay cool in the summer heat is always a challenge if your dress code doesn’t involve a bikini.  Dresses are always the best and easiest go-to during spring and summer, it’s one piece and bam you’re dressed. I’ve had this perfect boho tunic dress from Fevrie that if you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already seen it but I’ve been wanting to put in on the blog but a simple closet selfie wouldn’t do it justice, it needed the full photoshoot to capture how perfect and carefree it made me feel!


I jumped on the opportunity when my best friend turned photosphere asked if I would help her build her portfolio for her photography business she just started Brandi Arlene Photography.  Who wouldn’t want their photographer to be one of there best friends who you automatically feel comfortable with?! Ugh duh, it was a no brainer.  Brandi has shot just about all of my photos for my blog but this boho photoshoot was the first official shoot with her for her new business and it was seriously the most fun I’ve had….did I mention we had wine?

Wine + your bestie + photoshoot = the perfect shooting!








I don’t know about y’all but I’m totally obsessed with this backpack, the pockets are what made me fall in love!! I actually bought it months ago for my trip to Europe but I couldn’t wait, I wanted to use it because it’s gorgeous and I’m totally into the backpack trend right now!

p.s.  I totally felt more comfortable not only with my bestie behind the lens but when I was acting silly and jumping around….at one point I was leaping like I was flying, is that weird? Being serious is just not in the cards for me, candids are my best friend and Brandi totally captures the most perfect ones!

Y’all be sure to check out Brandi’s online gallery & follow her on Instagram! I promise y’all won’t disappointed!!

    Two amazing things about this post 1) the tunic dress – I love the embroidery and 2) that you have a BFF photographer in your pocket. The photos are great – I love the variety! Sportsanista

    I know exactly what you mean! It’s awkward with a stranger. But when I have my boyfriend or bestie or sister take my pics, it’s so fun and carefree!! Love the tunic dress… so boho adorable!
