I was eager to try this off-the-shoulder trend that’s been rampant this summer. But I feel like for myself, they always bunch up and I have to wear a strapless bra and it just becomes a huge hassle. So when I found this dress on J. Crew Factory‘s website, I was excited to try it out. Unfortunately, I don’t own a bra with straps that completely line up with the shirt’s straps, so they kept poking out and looking terrible. But based on the online reviews of this dress, it seems like almost everyone else is able to wear a normal bra with it, so good for them! It is such an easy, comfortable, and actually very “put together” looking dress that I’m super glad I sprung to try it. The bag that is shown with this dress was a present from my darling mother-in-law, and it was the BEST present. I’ve been using it on repeat since she gave it to me last month- I can’t recommend it enough! Draper James is currently out of the denim one that I own, but they have an equally cute cream color or floral print version. If dresses aren’t your thing, check out my post coming up in the next couple days, I’ve got another option for you!
