The Only Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Grocery List You Need! (Paleo Compliant)

Starting a new diet is hard.  Where do I even start???  What’s GOOD for me?  Does this follow the diet guidelines and restrictions?  Is this REALLY going to help me feel better/look better/lose weight/etc.?

LBD

I am in love with this sassy little number from American Eagle’s Don’t Ask Why collection.  The fabric is light, airy, and flows with the warm breezes (just watch out for that Marilyn Monroe effect…).  Dress it up.
