Girl, I Am Not Giving You the Cold Shoulder

 

 

Generally off the shoulder dresses, shirts, rompers, etc. are not my jam because let's be honest when you are 30+ and a C cup, you need/want to wear a bra.  Am I right?!?  I am not a big fan of strapless bras but if you have a kind that you swear by I'd love to hear from you.  That being said, this little dress has been in my closet now for 3 years and I wear it a lot.  I just love how it feels and moves on my body.  It's the perfect dress for extreme heat as it's breathable, light and flowy.  I also love styling it with a belt or letting it flow.  I wore this dress for Mother's Day weekend and it was absolutely the perfect mix of trendy and comfortable.










Since my dress is a few years old,  I decided to gathered up a few options for you to check out that are out for spring/summer 2018. 



Dex Printed Off-the-Shoulder Dress:  You can't get much more trendy than this dress.  Off the shoulder.  Cute Print.  Bell sleeves with little tie-up details.  A ruffle wrap front.  Sigh.  I think I am in love.  $34 CAN

 

Dex Stripe Off-the-Shoulder Dress:  Want to update your stripes?  This just might be the dress for you.  $41 CAN

 

Guess Ombre Off-the-Shoulder Dress:  Who says ombre is only a hair coloring term?  I think this is just the perfect dress for the beach during the day and dinner on the coast in the evening.   Lace detailing.  I love that it has little shoulder tie-ups, giving us the option of wearing a bra, and it's fully lined.   If I was going to pick one of these to splurge on, this would be it.   $108 CAN

 

JustFab Printed Dress:  I have been happy with every purchase form Justfab and the price point can't really be beat.  This is an everyday summer dress.  I love the bright ptint, the tie waist, light fabric and pockets.  I love pockets!  $ 39.93 USD

 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Ah, yes I have that problem too at times. If I am trying to cook, or apply my make-up, etc. but otherwise this dress sits pretty low and doesn't ride up as much. So basically if I wear it and sit/stand pretty it's good, LOL!

    1. Thanks so much. I agree, the off the shoulder trend is a great way to a) soak up the sun b) to show off your tan. :)

    1. Laura, I really try to stick to shopping my closet for the most part. I wish I could buy, buy, buy but that's not really our lifestyle and I am always inspired by how others style their pieces, giving me more ideas :)

  4. This is such a cute dress, and I love the off the shoulder cut on you! My favorite strapless bra is by Fantasie. It actually supports us larger chested women!

  5. Rachael, thanks for the tip. I actually went online to their website and there is a store right here in SK that carries their line!!! I am totally going to check them out. Also, thanks for the kind words, means a great deal coming from someone I admire.

  6. My strapless is by Fit Fully Yours and I was very impressed! And it was very reasonably priced for a good bra.
