Happy Thursday ladies; I hope you are having as much fun as I am at least when it comes to the weather. We have short summers here in Minnesota so the aim is always to enjoy the sun and everyday as much as we can. I guess every lady already knows and owns at least one of Summer's popular dresses because they need no introduction. Since the off-the-shoulder dress or cold shoulder dresses started trending three or two summers ago, they have not left the fashion scene and that makes me think they are going to be around much longer. I purchased this particular dress from Loft last summer and it was the vibrant colors of the florals that drew me in. I also got a pair of culottes in the same print. I styled the dress with a straw bag which really is the number one summer bag, a pair of sunnies because we've got to protect those eyes and a pair of black mules and a straw hat which are all summer's essential accessories. What do you think of off-the-shoulder and cold shoulder dresses for summer, yay or nay?
For me, I was a little skeptical about the style at first and debated on how appropriate it is for a Christian lady or mom of 4 to bare her shoulders or how low the off-shoulder should go. Don't get me wrong, I am not so old fashioned; just a matter of modesty. I don't mind wearing a one shoulder evening gown or off the shoulder dress or cold shoulder dress for an evening event or date with the hubby which I have done in the past but for day time, I paused a little. However, after experiencing a hot humid summer like no other ever seen probably due to global warming, I changed my mind and this reminds me always that whatever we do, it is the intention behind the act that matters. Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart. Thank you so much for stopping by here.

Bible Verse of the Day
1 Samuel 16: 7
"But the LORD said unto Samuel, look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart."
This is such a fun happy print and the silhouette looks fabulous on you!ReplyDelete
Definitely a yay, Beauty! You look so lovely in this dress. I could never get tired of shoulder-bearing dresses. I think they're timeless:) Anyhoo, always great to hear from you. God bless:)ReplyDelete
