My Pick Of Off The Shoulder Dresses, Another Sneaky Purchase & WIWT

Morning ladies now the other day we looked at off the shoulder tops (see here) & I showed you a few suggetions on how you can style them both for day or evening.

So today I thought we should look at off the shoulder dresses as I don't know about you but we're fully into holiday countdown mode & this style of dress is perfect for hot sunny days & evenings.  Whether it be dressed down for a day of sightseeing/shopping ;-) or dressed up for a leisurely evening enjoying local cuisine & the last of the sun's rays before it sets for the evening.  You can guarantee this style of dress will keep you cool both in terms of looks & temperature.

Here's just a few suggestions on how I'd style this type of dress.

1 Dress 3 Ways, My Midlife Fashion, I Dress 3 Ways, John Lewis Weekend Collection Stretch denim jacket, Topshop embroidered bardot midi dress, uniqlo ines straw fedora, boden pom pom sandal, ted baker leeban sandals, the dressing room the butterfly clutch, hipanema oh my silver bracelet, john lewis weekend collection multi beaded stripe clutch, Miss KG Elisa lace Up Stiletto sandals

And here's my edit from those currently doing the rounds on the high street.  I just love this style teamed with embroidery but I think my favourite just has to be that black maxi number.  So much so I'm very tempted to get clicking that button :-0

Finally before I share my outfit for today I just wanted to show you a little purchase that I made yesterday.  Ever since the issue of free plastic bags has been phased out I've been on the lookout for the perfect canvas shopper & low & behold I found it yesterday :-)

So ladies what do you think?  Are you a lover of this type of dress & tempted to get clicking the 'buy me' button or maybe you've recently purchased a dress in this style & have it tucked away in your wardrobe ready for your holidays?  Or perhaps you're wary of this type of dress & unsure of which underwear to wear (you can see my suggestions here).

As always I love reading your thoughts.

Right I'm off to make a start on the Father's Day celebrations for hubby.  Enjoy your day, don't forget it's the last day to take advantage of Boden's current discount (see here) & I'll be back in the morning.
