The Cold Shoulder

I’m serving cold shoulders in today’s style story, featuring this beautiful number that I’ve taken way too long to wear. You see, last Summer I went a little crazy with several shopping hauls, all with one common theme: dresses. Last time I counted the number was over 25…and then… I stopped counting...
So I mentioned that the weather has been all over the place here; On the day that I shot this look, it felt like it was 85 degrees! Fast forward to yesterday, it was chilly, raining, and gloomy. I won’t complain because sporadic weather serves my wardrobe well in some ways. For instance, it gives me the chance to play in wear for every season, sometimes all in one day!
Going shoulder-less in some way or another has been encouraged by multiple runway shows, and I'm here for it! Not only does this dress hit the trend target but it totally has the best bonus: a classic floral print! I go for classic over trends 75% of the time. This number is easily dressed up or down, superbly made, plus it has vibrant, saturated color. I can honestly say: I am looking forward to wearing it again and again.
Just for the fun of it, I decided to add in a subtle print toss. My jumbo clutch was just the pattern mix that I needed. I love this combo, and guess what? My husband says that he really likes it too! When I pull off something that we both like, I’m winning!!! You see hubby's style is quite traditional, think black, grey, and navy or pinstripes and solids. Of course, my style is very different and all over the place! But as the saying goes, opposites attract- and Honey is stuck with me (18 years and counting)!
Until next time Dolls,
XO
