Buying the Basics

One of the biggest frustrations since switching to Paleo is the lack of essentials here is our town.  Although our town is growing it is still majorly lacking in many areas such as specialty grocers.  You will not find a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods here and the best thing you will get is Raley's (Nob Hill) and their selection still leaves a lot to be desired.  So we must trek over an hour away just to stock up on the very basics of my dietary needs; coconut milk, coconut flour, coconut sugar... while really hoping I don't start hating coconut!

Dress: ModCloth // Shoes: CVS // Earrings: Forever21

It was pretty hot in Fresno so I decided to wear this shorter dress I purchased from ModCloth last year.  This is my first time wearing it as I find it can be a bit clingy in areas I am tend to not be too confident highlighting.  Not to mention, the elements of this dress seem to be a bit confused.  When I snagged it on sale for a whooping $9 (I believe) I wasn't too concerned on whether it was amazing, I more just wanted a cute little dress to add to my closet for pennies on the original price tag!  The fabric is thick, like really thick, which would lend one to think it was more cold weather appropriate, but it's a mini...  and sleeveless...  which doesn't quite add up to warm weather.  Luckily it was a rare occasion where the weather was perfect for it last week and I was happy to finally get some use out of it while stocking up on coconut EVERYTHING!  haha
