Off-the-Shoulder Dress

I took the day off work (and taking care of the kids) today to take myself out on a date; to do something nice for myself. When you’re  a mom, days like this are VERY rare so you really have to take advantage of it once the opportunity arises. I think the last time I did this was almost a year ago and I found myself shopping for the kids (not for myself). So let’s see where this day will lead me (I won’t promise I won’t do any shopping for the kids).

Since summer is about to be over soon, I decided to take advantage of it by showing a little bit of skin and jump into the biggest trend of this year. I know how late I am into this off-the-shoulder craze but, believe it or not, I have valid reasons why I haven’t worn one yet. First off, I work 5 days a week and wearing one is just simply not appropriate (said someone who used to wear mini skirts to work – well my style has changed since then). But, let’s look at the brighter side; it’s better late than never, right?

I really love the cut of this off-the-shoulder dress. It accentuates my waist; thus, giving me that hourglass shape. I also love that it hugs my curves yet I do not feel restrained at all. And it’s very easy to accessorize; add a pair of flats, a pair of sunglasses, and a purse (I chose a yellow one to add a pop of color); and you’re good to go.
