While walking around Old Navy, I passed by this dress and grabbed it to try on, mostly thinking I wouldn’t like it but wanted to confirm it. I had a suspicion that it would probably be too long for since I’m only 5’2″ and most dresses are just a touch too long.
I thought maybe if it wasn’t too long, I just wouldn’t like the shape of it.
Turns out I was wrong on both accounts.
When I get dresses or tops that are off the shoulder, I usually try them on how they’re intended to be worn… of the shoulder. But I’ll also try it on with it pulled up so the sleeves are actually acting like sleeves, just to see how it would look if the sleeves were to shift up through out the day. I like to see if it’s going to be a top I’m gonna have to constantly fuss with and adjust or if I can just leave it be if it does ride up.
This dress is super cute either way!
It’s more of a shift style of dress, and doesn’t do much as far as shape goes, which doesn’t really bother me. The first time I wore this was on Mother’s day and since it’s roomy that just meant I could eat more cupcakes… which is what roomy dresses are for right?
The last few weeks I’ve been wearing my hair in a messy bun, which don’t they always look better when you’re doing absolutely nothing but binge watching GirlBoss for the second time and no one is going to see it? Of course the day I took these photos, it was so windy so I’m lucky it even stayed in tact part to even get photos.
Since it’s starting to heat up in Texas, don’t be surprised if the top knot makes more appearances.
