This has been a crazy couple of weeks. Ramadan was winding down, I was going through some ups and downs personally, and I swear if I didn’t have my head screwed on properly, I would have lost it. I was super excited to showcase this awesome cold shoulder dress and why it’s the perfect summer midi. And then when editing the photos, I realized that I completely forgot to put my arms in the proper arm holes. Cold shoulder no more! It’s just a regular strappy dress. So I suppose I am now pivoting to showcase how versatile this dress is haha. Gotta roll with the punches, right?
This dress looks even better with the shoulders on properly. But I think it still looks great as I’ve worn it here. So let me tell you why this is a fabulous piece for your summer wardrobe.
There are endless summer dresses to choose from, but not every one of them is amazing. This one checks all my boxes: comfort, style, and price. First of all, the fabric is stretchy, but because of the cold shoulder style, it hangs so that it does not emphasize your belly if you have one. I tried the other Leith dress available in a similar style, and it does no favors for you if you’ve got some extra jelly in your belly. Even the reviewers agreed.
As far as style goes, it’s simple and chic. And with a fit and flare silhouette, it emphasizes a smaller waist and flatters the figure. Plus the midi length works well for modest dressers. The price is affordable at around $40. I’ve linked some similar styles below as well. Finally, this roomy ring handle tote is only $35 dollars and is super lightweight. Great for running errands, or carrying a small furry animal, it will be your new favorite summer it bag.
So lesson learned — don’t let the clothes deceive you. Make sure you’ve got your arms and legs in all the right places. You’d think by my age I’d know how to put clothes on, but apparently I’ve still got a ways to go. Any of you out there have any embarrassing wardrobe malfunction stories? While tube tops are the usual suspects, this seemingly sweet dress got the best of me.
