While I certainly have specific silhouettes that I favor most of the time, I would never say that my style is all one thing. I can’t define myself as strictly preppy or feminine or modern, because I like to dress in all of these ways. Maybe that makes me a bit eclectic (or indecisive?). It’s the same reason why I wouldn’t have made it as a recording artist – because I love to sing so many different types of music (R&B, soul, country, gospel)…I never could have settled on just one! So I choose to look at it as having different “style moments” – if I feel like going for a modern edgy look, then I embrace that. If I want to wear something feminine & flirty, I go for it. What I wear each day is largely based on my mood & I personally don’t think we should be painted into a corner when it comes to our personal style.
This dress is a slight departure from the more sophisticated styles I typically wear, but with the new season comes a relaxed vibe that I am gladly welcoming. If you’re looking for an easy dress for an upcoming vacation, the beach or festival season, this off-the-shoulder maxi is it. You could dress this up more with strappy heels & a structured clutch or add a braided belt & straw hat for daytime. I like that you can also wear it up over your shoulders too. The lightweight woven fabric & double slits make it an ideal choice for even the warmest summer days because it breathes nicely + the small floral print gives it a decidedly bohemian feel.
