I know in the fashion blogging world, the cold shoulder trend is all the rage. I personally love the cold shoulder look, but rarely find myself wearing it. I’ll be honest, my days of wearing anything but a regular bra are pretty much over. Gone are the strapless bra days, which is probably why I don’t wear the trend a lot. I actually already own this exact maxi dress in black and couldn’t resist getting the navy version this year. Trust me when I say this dress is worth wearing a strapless bra for!
I love a good maxi dress, especially one with special details and accents. I mean, who isn’t a sucker for a dress with pockets? The side slit detail on this maxi is perfect for summer, and also for us tall girls! It’s often a struggle to find a maxi dress that is long enough. This one isn’t necessarily too short, but the slit detail helps distract from the fact that it’s just a tad shorter than I would prefer. I actually wore this exact outfit to the beach while we were in Santa Cruz and it makes the perfect cool and casual beach outfit!
