Off The Shoulder Dress


Dress: Socialite (old, similar here) | Shoes: Steve Madden (old, similar here) | Bag: Marc Jacobs | Sunglasses: Jimmy Choo | Lips: Lust by MAC

I love dresses that are easy to wear, and it doesn’t get any easier than with an off the shoulder dress.  It’s simple, comfortable and playful.  An off the shoulder exposes just the right amount of skin without being over the top and because of its versatility, it can be styled in different ways depending on where you are off to.  You can dress it up with heeled sandals and a bold lip color for a dramatic look or dress it down as a swimsuit cover up with flat sandals for a more casual vibe.

This floral off the shoulder dress from Socialite has been on constant rotation in my closet since buying it almost two years ago.  The dress is a simple shift style made from light weight material, the lace detail on the sleeves add an extra feminine flare and I love that the yellow base color adds a pop of color.  I wore this outfit to dinner during our recent trip to Thailand.  It was hot and humid that night, so it was perfect for that type of weather.  Since the neckline makes a statement on its own – I kept this outfit simple by pairing the dress with a neutral colored handbag and wedges.

Are you an off the shoulder fan?

      Thank you Jana! I am actually glad I gave the off the shoulder trend a try. I wasn’t on board in the beginning especially since I am doing a lot of picking up, bending down motions with my son. But I am a convert and love the way it elevates any outfit. How are you doing today?

    What a pretty dress! And how helpful that you’re carrying the exact bag style I am thinking about getting! It’s nice to see how the size looks in real life (er..on a person in real life on the internet!).

      Thank you Gina! I love this bag. I didn’t think I would when I first tried it on at the store. But over time I kept coming back to it and trying it on. I finally decided to give the bag a try and bought it in the Mink color. I can honestly say this bag is one of my favorites and has been on heavy rotation ever since. Which color are you thinking of buying?

    So jealous of where you are right now! It’s freezing here. I also love that pretty dress on you.

    Maureen, I absolutely love this dress! I am always drawn to florals on a mustard background. There is something so soothing and feminine about the combination. But I just can’t wear the yellow. But boy, you can! This dress looks so amazing on you! Thanks for linking up with me at #SpreadTheKindness!


    • Maureen | 12th Dec 17

      Thank you Shelbee! I am always drawn to color too and I got lucky with this dress. Hope your AM is off to a great start!
