I was not kidding when I said this week was full of off the shoulder dresses and tops. Just be prepared. When I hang up my clothes sometimes I think — wow, Kendi, you’ve got a type. And right now that type is off the shoulder. But for a pregnant girl, it’s a gift. I still feel like I can get my trendy looks in without sacrificing for typical maternity style. Also if you mix gingham, ruffles, and off the shoulders in a dress…. guess what? I’ll buy it.

I love gingham in spring and summer. If it isn’t, it should be the official fabric of those seasons. I mean how can you not think of summer when you see this pattern? (And yes I also think of picnics. But if it has to do with food,Β I’m willing to represent picnics with this gingham dress.) I also love anything Corey Lynn Calter, so this dress was gonna come home with me no matter what. Corey Lynn Calter used to be more expensive (like $250-300 for a dress) than the price point now. I know this because A) I’ve always been a fan and B) I wanted to carry her line at our shops back in the day but we just never took the plunge. I always get so excited when I see her stuff, usually at Anthropologie. Anyways, more thoughts on CLC and gingham dress than you care to know. πŸ™‚

Oh look it’s last summer’s favorite shoes making a comeback this spring. Seriously, my favorite. I’m so glad they brought them back this year, because I might need a replacement…or a restock so that I’m never without these shoes. They literally go with everything from cut offs to dresses. My kind of shoe, right there.

Fit Details

Dress fits true to size, if not a little bit bigger! It’s loose fitting, so if you like that look, stay true! If you want it a bit of a closer fit, size down.

  1. I’m currently wearing an off-the-shoulder top too but the real question is—is there a trick for keeping it from slipping? I tried the elastic and safety pin trick but it’s a bit annoying in the pits lol. Please share if you do!

  2. Curious to know your thoughts on the difference between the Chloe wedge and the Marc Fisher? I guess I’m trying to figure out if the splurge for the Chloe is really worth it.
    Thanks!

    1. GO WITH THE CHLOE. Bahaha. I love the scallop edge on the Chloe! And all of her products are such great quality, I’d say if you are looking for a splurge, go for it! Now you are making me want them πŸ˜‰

      1. HAHAHA!! I broke down and ordered both (thank you double points- Nordstrom) and was wearing one of each foot last night. You are right…those Chloes…SOOO CUTE!
