So here's the thing. I fought the off the shoulder and cold shoulder trends as much as possible. And then I reached a breaking point and now there's no turning back. But I just fell in love with the dress because a) I love a good shirt dress b) I love stripes and c) the off the shoulder look gives a classic piece an interesting twist. I was so happy to get it and try it on and see that it looked as adorable on as I pictured and hoped it would be!

Since the dress is clearly a trendy piece, I wanted to pair it with some tougher accessories like these studded ankle strap heels and chain link bag. I basically never put my hair in a pony tail like this ever. I don't normally like it in a basic pony, so it usually goes in a low offset pony, or in a top knot. But with residual curls and a lot of hair spray to pump up the volume a bit, I liked the way this ended up turning out. I always, always plan my outfits around my hairstyle for the day and sometimes vice versa!
Hope your week is going great so far! Looking forward to the long holiday weekend!!!
