{outfit} CT Blogger Bohemian Festival

A couple weekends ago, on a lovely 90° Sunday, I went to the CT Blogger Babes Bohemian Festival at Bear's Smokehouse in New Haven. The second Lydia and I went inside we made a beeline for the Rebel Hair Salon braid bar. I asked for a couple braids that went into a ponytail so my hair would be out of the way in the crazy heat.  After getting our boho hair we walked around to check out the various vendors. Local stores like Erin Deluca Jewelry, Vintanthromodern and Kiyomi Beauty brought a selection of products for us to shop. I'm in a spending freeze for the next couple months so I just browsed.

After shopping it was time for flower crowns which I declined to make because mine would have been horrible in comparison with everyone else's, haha. Following that it was time for some really good barbecue! The pulled pork was delicious and my favorite item was a bacon covered meatball. I made sure to take a BUNCH home in a to go box for Christian (I still ate more of them, ha ha.) I was a horrible blogger and barely took any pictures at the event. I'll add a link to photos if/when the CT Blogger Babes post them!

On to the outfit! I took the bohemian theme as an opportunity to wear my newly altered jumpsuit! After 2 years of not wearing this jumpsuit I finally had my mom remove the sleeves for me! SOOOO much better. I only wore it once, for a few hours, in Positano. I found it for $30 on clearance at Anthropologie and bought it with that Italy trip in mind. Sadly it just felt too over the top for me because of the sleeves so I never wore it again. Now it has a new life as a beautiful sleeveless jumpsuit!

  1. The jumpsuit looks fabulous without the sleeves! It'a great that you were able to alter it and make it more "you" because the pattern really is super fun.

  2. I love the pink bag with the colours in your jumpsuit, so pretty! And it's amazing how one little change to an item can make us love it even more! It's great you get more wear from this jumpsuit now :)

    I love all the colors here and the tiny details, from the gold clasp at the end of the braid to the flowers on the spectacular hand bag.
