Off The Shoulder Sundress & Peep Toe Ankle Boots: Keepin’ It Brief

I’m going to be keeping the story portion of today’s post to a minimum…

THE STORY 

…Currently there is a lot going on in real life that has me mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted. I’m only firing on about two of my one hundred cylinders so forgive the lack of my usually sparkling wit. Although one bright spot is, assuming no drastic change in the situation my family is currently dealing with, we are still planning to go on a previously planned day trip to Cedar Point today. So hopefully as you read this, I’m plunging into a 90 degree drop on the newest coaster. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Cedar Point is known as the roller coaster capital of the world. That is the single only reason my husband and I make the pilgrimage…the coasters.

This year we are particularly excited because we haven’t been there for over ten years. My husband had a heart attack nine years ago and we’ve been leery since then. Our daughter has apparently inherited our roller coaster gene and has recently been super interested in riding the big coasters. The hubs saw his heart doctor recently and she gave him the absolute go ahead for a little coaster adventure. Needless to say, the three of us are pretty pumped about it. First on our list is the Valravn, which was CNN’s number one pick of new coasters for 2016. It is the world’s largest dive coaster at 223 feet and it travels at 75 mph…that’s going to be one of hell of a ride my friends and I absolutely cannot wait.

THE OUTFIT

Today you’re getting a two-fer. Is it a dress? Is it a top? Technically speaking, this gorgeous pink off the shoulder sundress which I received c/o Shein is, well, a dress. It was a little short at the sides for my liking so I threw it over a pair of…what else? Denim boyfriend shorts of course. But with that being said, I knew that it would make an absolutely beautiful dress layered over my Lace Flounce Skirt Extender from Grace & Lace.

And guess what? Since you all loved my skirt extenders post so much I have a special surprise for you…this particular extender is currently 30% off! That is a sweet deal! The discount is part of Grace & Lace’s Christmas in July promotion and no code is necessary. It comes in Ivory, Bisque and Black and at 30% off you might want to grab more than one color. In any case, I was correct. Seriously, how pretty is this off the shoulder sundress paired with the lace skirt extender? They’re a perfect match. In order to keep things grounded with all of that sweet pink and lace going on, I added my brown block heel peep toe ankle boots to funk it up a little bit and also to prevent myself from looking like a 51 year old women dressed for a 6 year old girl’s birthday party. Nobody wants to see that.

THE TIP

There is not a thing in the world wrong with going for an all out girly-girl look. In my opinion though, it’s best to ground it with something edgy, masculine and/or funky. In this case the booties toned it down, but in cooler temperatures a moto or denim jacket and maybe even leggings would do the trick as well.

    I love it both with and without the lace underneath!

    Wow! That sounds like one insane coaster! I am terrified of heights and am so not a coaster person at all. On another note such a beautiful dress!

    This is where I have the most difficulty ~ trying not to look like a 6 year old. I have to find a few funky pieces I guess. Thanks for the tip, just ordered the skirt extender in bisque.
