Black Bohemian Dress + Sammy Dress




Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous March! This month has already been a whirlwind, but I have only hope and positivity for what is to come. :) That was a hella vague opening, but I need an entire "Real Talk" post to get into the craziness that has been my life lately. Hopefully that will be up soon!

Anywho, is it snowing where you are today? Because yesterday I ran outside with a short sleeve shirt on and was completely fine and today I just want to stay snuggled up in the biggest sweater I own. Weather is so confusing! How am I supposed to mentally prepare for the best season ever (aka. summer) if its snowing every other week?!

So, once again, we find ourselves in the season of transition pieces, something I talked about constantly this past fall. I am forever on the lookout for pieces that work great during these strange, "never know what's coming next" months and today I'm bringing you a beautiful boho dress perfect for just that!





This dress was gifted to me by Sammy Dress for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 



Shop the Look:






Real talk: if I'm being completely honest I underestimated this dress. Well, to be fair I completely underestimated myself in this dress. I 100% thought the low cut front wouldn't be a big deal and my chest would look as "quaint" as the model in the photo. These photos here actually do a better job downplaying things than real life does. So, let me be the first to say that I'm not totally comfortable wearing this dress out for your typical everyday events unless I wear something underneath to keep things a bit more modest. 

But that's the beauty of this dress! You can wear it how it was intended or slip something underneath to give it a more modest look and no one would be the wiser. It's all about what makes you comfortable. 

Besides that slight hiccup, I'm in love with everything about this dress. Bohemian style dresses are so fun and playful and that is exactly what this dress is -- fun and playful. The wide sleeves flow with your movement, the skirt is flattering but not tooo short and the flowers (and really all of the detailing) give this dress an added romantic feel to the playfulness. 

"So how does this dress act as a great transition piece?" you might ask. Well, first of all, in my humble opinion black works for every season. Black in general is great to transition with because you can pair it with anything and it will still look good. Yes, the golden rule of fashion. Even better, though, if its cold outside and you want to wear a dress, but still want to give your legs a little bit of warmth, this black dress pairs seamlessly with tights. Warm outside? Throw aside your tights and you're good to go! This dress would look amazing with riding boots or booties or heals or even cute little sandals (for the wonderful upcoming season of summer). 

Really ladies, its a win-win-win-win scenario.  10/10 








What is your favorite transition piece for this time of year??

  1. I've bought pieces from Sammy Dress before and really enjoyed what I bought. I love this piece as well! I see what you're saying about the low cut, I'd also probably wear a cami or even a fuller-coverage bralette underneath. But it seems be a great transition piece (especially those of us in bipolar-weather states like NC lol). Love this look! Thanks for sharing your review :)

    1. My friend recommended that I try aerie for a higher cut bralette, so I think I'm going to check that out here soon! But yes, I think it will definitely be a great transition piece for the Spring time :)

    1. Thank you so much! Sammy Dress is an online store that sells affordable clothing. I've been working with them since the summer and I've loved the pieces they've sent.

      As a tip, though, they always tell you the exact measurements of their clothes. So if you're unsure what size you might be, check those measurements to make sure!
