I grew up in the 80s, so I’m naturally a big fan of the off-the-shoulder look, and this dress is the one you need this summer!
It’s the perfect LBD – easy, breezy, loose fitting yet flattering, can be dressed up or down, and best yet, under $100! Oh yes, I picked up this little number from LOFT on a whim visit and have already worn it several times.
Now, let me tell you about this photoshoot with Kyle Weber. We decided to head to the brand new River Oaks District because it’s a gorgeous new outdoor shopping area of Houston with beautiful walls, wide open walkways, shops and restaurants. It was also about 100 degrees. OK, I’m exaggerating, it was like 97. But it’s HOUSTON so that’s not what they call a “dry heat”. Oh no, I was melting!
I’m obsessed with this black and white pattern and the mod bench in front.
This quick shot with my girl Greetings from Texas cracks me up! We were meeting Julie right afterwards to try out the new Hop Daddy burger restaurant that just opened up. Yes, I’m still a vegetarian (or pescatarian? So affected!) but they have an awesome black bean burger on their menu, and enough fries and yummy cocktails to keep me happy for days! It’s a fun, casual, “order at the counter” kind of place, but super popular and packed, even on a weekday evening. Get there early!
One key to billowy dresses like this is to wear shoes with a bit of height. I’m wearing some super comfortable AND adorable gold espadrilles since it was a casual Tuesday evening, but you could very easily pair this with a sleeker sandal.
Shop the look and get it before it’s gone! Sales about, y’all, and all the good stuff goes FIRST!
