Happy weekend lovelies! It’s a bright one here in St. Louis. I’m living the high life with an extra dose of sunny Vitamin D. I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine wherever you are. Today’s outfit of the day features the ubiquitous off the shoulder trend. I’ve styled this black and white striped off the shoulder dress with subtle pops of color because this frock speaks for itself.

The wrap around design around the top gives you sexy shoulders, while covering up any arm chub. God knows how hard I work to slim down those suckers. Well I do everything except cut out chocolate and carbs haha. A girl’s gotta have simple pleasures, right?

This dress has a such a flattering silhouette.  The horizontal stripes emphasize the bust line, while vertical stripes lengthen and trim from the waist down. Plus there are pockets, which are always a plus in my book. The fabric is a bit heavy, so you may prefer to wear it in spring over summer. For some, the fabric around the shoulders tends to shift around, so perhaps try a petite size.
