Hi my loves! I hope you enjoyed the looonggg holiday weekend. I’ll be the first to say that I indulged in all of the things that make me happiest during my 5-day weekend (i.e soaking up the sun, Neflix binging, etc). As of late, I’ve really been trying to go outside of my element, and test the waters a bit when it comes to my style. There are a few trends that I’ve been eying, but I hadn’t quite tried them yet – with the off-the-shoulder trend being on of them.
Well, I’m happy to say that I purchased my first off-the-shoulder dress of the summer, and I’m really happy I did! This dress came from the great racks of Forever 21, and let me just tell you I waited 24 hours before I committed to this purchase. YES. I went home and I slept on it. I woke up the next day still thinking about the dress being in my closet, and that’s when I knew I had to have it. I think it was the color that struck me the most. I never really buy bright, radiant colors – so this was really out of my comfort zone. The color really complemented my skin tone so well, I couldn’t resist.
I paired this dress with my black espadrille sandals, which were purchased from H&M. I kept the jewelry light, as always – only wearing my rose gold Michael Kors watch. For my hair, I flipped it up into a curly bun, letting my face show. Since my hair was out of my face, I went crazy with the highlight to make sure I had that summer glow.
Shoutout to my boyfriend for being my photographer over the weekend! Guys, I think he’s becoming a pro at this 🙂
