As of late, the bougainvillea has been out in full force in Los Angeles. I've been on the look out for it in our neighborhood and nearby areas for the perfect blog photos. Unfortunately, on the day that I took these photos, it was noon and rather sunny, so the lighting in this particular location was less than ideal. A few of the pictures, however, were salvageable, and made it into this post.
Regarding the styling of this dress, I decided to go for a sort of "mod squad" look by layering a striped black and white long sleeve tee underneath. In the future, I would definitely consider wearing it by itself or with a denim jacket. Like the bougainvillea this time of year in Los Angeles, which seems to be everywhere, the possibilities for the dress are also endless!
