Red floral Off-the-Shoulder Dress: Forever 21 |Tan leather fringe heels: Zara (last year’s, but similar options here and here) | Gold choker: J Crew (similar here ) |Pebbled leather clutch: Gigi New York

I’m usually  not one for anything too girly, so this red, floral, off the shoulder number that I wore for a datenight last weekend was a little out of my comfort zone– but surprisingly, I really loved it! Even though we just went to a local steakhouse for dinner, my look totally said “tropical vacation” and I’m totally fine with that!

If you don’t have an off the shoulder dress yet for this summer, well I don’t know what the heck you’re waiting for! They are literally EVERYWHERE, IN EVERY STORE, AT EVERY PRICE POINT– so my advice is, wear them now before we all get totally sick of the trend! The one that I’m wearing here is a cheapie find from Forever 21 (linked to shop above!)… I paired it with super neutral accessories in tan and gold since the dress is the show piece here (as are the tan lines on my shoulders from wearing my fave one piece (seen here!) to the beach the past few times! oops…gotta do a bandeau next time, yikes!) If you’re picking up a few off the shoulder looks for the summer (or building a repertoire of summer dresses of any kind), my guideline is this: at least one in denim or chambray, at least one white one in lace or crochet, a floral dress like the one I’m wearing here, and of course, a black one.  Those four are a good place to start in terms of building a collection that you can pair with lots of different accessories for lots of different occasions!

Shop my exact look using the links above, and try and carve out your own datenight this week (new baby or not!)<3
