Are you loving this summer dress trend? Off-the-shoulder dresses are all the rage right now. While I love the easy style, the only thing that makes me break a sweat is finding the right strapless bra.
If you have a good recommendation, please let me know. The ones I currently own require so much management (which means tugging up and making sure everything stays put) that they drive me bananas.
Back to the dress, I adore this color, J.Crew calls it "bold red" I call it tomato. It's easy, breezy and ideal for summer travel and really hot days. It's been 90+ degrees here in NYC. Light dresses are all I want to wear. It's a really simple cut (you could definitely wear this as maternity or a beach cover-up) and works for most body types.
As for the accessories, there's not much to add to this dress. I kept it simple. My Crystal Blue Sunglasses from Nine West are essential. I kept my other jewelry to my everyday basics, diamond studs, my wedding bands and a few delicate rose gold necklaces.

I hardly ever carry small bags (I wish I could, but I walk everywhere and don't have a car to store my gear). Totes are my go-to style solution for carrying my stuff. I love this new tote from Lucky Brand. It's called the Indie Beach Tote Bag. You know why I love it? The pom poms. You could probably just buy some pom poms and add them to your tote. Maybe try that with these purse charms I found on Amazon.
That's it. A really simple look to create and you've probably already got these pieces in your closet. My biggest tip for summer? Wear colors and have fun. Soon enough we'll be back in our black clothes and bundled up. Embrace the sun!
