I’m heading into the long weekend with a bright red dress in tow! I think we can all agree that 3 day weekends are awesome, and are one of the reasons why summer is so special. There’s nothing quite like a weekend staycation at a destination close enough to drive to, but far enough to feel like a mini vacate. I’m not quite sure where the weekend will take me yet… but one thing’s for sure – I’m definitely in need of a little R&R.
This dress is quintessentially summer. It makes me feel like I’m at a country fair, and is kind of reminiscent of a fair prize ribbon, don’t you think? The halter front “X” cross is very current, and I find that it’s rather flattering on my shoulders. I will confess, my arms are not my favorite body party to show off, and I am very careful about the straps and necklines I wear. I have strong shoulders, which can look bulky and broad if I don’t choose wisely! I highly suggest a neckline with this if you stress at all about your arms / shoulders / armpit fat. It’s a silhouette that allows you to get out of a short sleeve and enjoy the summer without feeling self-conscious!
Side note: I wore this dress recently in a video over on Refinery29’s Facebook page. The show is called Pin It to Win It: At-Home Sugar Waxing. It’s pretty funny and I’d love for you to watch it HERE.
This little beauty I snagged at H&M, but I’ve put together a great catalogue of red hot dresses below, in case you want to shop! Are you a fan of this look? Let me know below! xx
