Happy Monday everyone!
I don’t know about you, but it’s always bugged me how impractical the off the shoulder trend is for working women. Don’t get me wrong, my old corporate office had a very lax dress code. I still wore off the shoulder tops but trying to type without the shoulders sliding up was quite the feat. And, in most offices, bearing your shoulders is simply out of the question. I know this is an issue my sister faces with buying tops like this. Why buy something that you can really only wear 2 days out of the week at most?
So, when Loft included this dress in their Spring line, I knew I had to grab it! This beauty can be worn both on and off the shoulder and hits right above the knee, which makes it perfect to wear to work and on the weekends. And, because it’s long-sleeved, it’s perfect for those transition days we’re currently experiencing. Or, on days like today when it’s snowing outside (lol, hi Spring), you can easily wear it on the shoulder and layer it under a cute Spring cardigan like this one.
To make this outfit perfect for transition weather, I paired it with over the knee boots. If you’re looking for other ways to style skirts or dresses for transition weather, be sure to read this post I wrote last Fall! You could also wear this dress with booties, like many I listed in this post, or a pair of nude heels. This dress is casual enough to easily wear with your favorite pair of flat sandals for when the weather does warm up! It’s dark enough to wear with both dark and light shoes!
Besides the versatility of this dress, I love that it is feminine without being overly obnoxious. The navy floral pattern is muted enough to not be too “in your face”. And, the ruffles add a femininity that’s not too over the top. If you’re looking to try out the ruffle trend but aren’t sure if you can “rock it”, this dress would be the perfect way to try it out!
One tip though – make sure you double knot the waist tie! I did not, and it did slip down rather easily.
Some technical details – this dress comes in regular, tall and petite sizes (woot!!). I’m wearing my typical SP, and it does run true to size (TTS). It’s currently on sale for under $65. And, given this is 2 dresses in one, that really means you’re getting two dresses for under $65! Loft does offer in-store pick up so if you’re looking for an Easter dress, this would be perfect. And with expedited shipping or in-store pick up, you’d get it before Sunday!
If you’re looking for other Easter dress ideas, be sure to read my spring dress post! I rounded up 30+ dresses under $60!
I hope everyone had a great weekend!! Did you catch my post from Saturday? I’m answering all of the questions I’ve gotten recently about how to shop my posts and how I make commission from my blog!

Friday, Kev & I had a date night out and managed to be back home by 8:30 PM (our kind of night! lol!). We mostly lounged on Saturday. Kevin worked on stuff around the apartment, and I worked on the blog! We also started the Netflix documentary Wild Wild Country. Have you seen it? I’ll just say it’s very odd and leave it at that! Yesterday, I met up with Emerson, a fellow style blogger from Classy Clean Chic. We had brunch and then went to The Lynhall (which is super cute!) to see my other blogger friend Taylor from The Styled Press speak about monetization and mingle with other bloggers! Being around so many creative minds is so enlightening and one of the things I love most about this industry!
I hope you all had a great weekend and have a successful start to your week!
