Off the shoulder dress and red lace up sandals3

Hello beauties! Happy Fridaaaaay!!! Hope you’ve had a great week! So glad we made it! What do you have going on this weekend? Hopefully, a combo of rest and fun:-) Even though the weather this past week in the DMV hasn’t been Spring-like, I’m excited about the idea of Summer lol Today’s post is evidence! What’s better than one summer trend?!? TWO! Read on for some easy styling tips so you can rock these summer trends: an Off the Shoulder Dress and lace-up sandals!

Pair with Lace-Up Sandals:

  • Lace-ups are in this Spring/Summer and pair nicely with an off the shoulder dress.
  • You can try different lace-ups:
    • Lace-up flats or gladiators
    • Lace-up wedges

Belt the Dress:

  • A great way to add some pizazz is belting the dress.
  • Another great hack, which is what I did here: rock a scarf as a belt!

I hope you’ve found these tips helpful and will put both on your summer list.  See more pics below and outfit details.  Dress is on sale for less than $30!!
