This week was quite the week! There were so many highs and lows. Everything felt out of my control. As much as I want to say TGIF, today will be a very long day for me. I'm trying to catch up with a lot of things (especially with work) and hopefully next week will be a reset. How's your week going? Do you guys have any tips and advice when you are feeling overwhelmed?

Ok, let's talk about fun stuff like this dress! I kept going back and forth about this cold shoulder dress. I eventually went for it because of the color. It says it is grey but to be honest, I think it is more of a pale blue. Nevertheless, grey or blue, I love its soft, pastel-like colors. So pretty! I was also a fan of the cold-shoulder feature. Any shoulder exposure and I am hooked! Haha! The tiered, ruffled sleeves are fun. If you are new to dramatic sleeves, this dress is a great one to start with. It is dramatic because of the ruffles and tiered style but it is not over the top.

Initially, I wasn't sure what bra to wear because of the open back. A peek of the back band of my strapless bra was showing. So I couldn't justify buying a backless bra (although I should get one). So I just let the back band sit lower on my back. Probably not the best long term haha. Do you guys have any recommendations on backless bras?

Alright, time to get the day started! I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

  8. This dress is so beautiful with the open back and cold shoulder details! Also I totally understand feeling overwhelmed! When that happens to me, I usually get myself out into nature as quickly as possible to decompress and reset. :)

  10. This dress is beautiful and I am totally loving the way you have styled it.
    For my backless dresses I prefer a Stick on bra. They stick perfectly and I do not have look much for straps peeping out.

  11. This dress has it all! I too love the soft shade, and the fun sleeves. Though backless things are a big bra issue for me, sadly I have no solution to offer.

  12. You look fab! As for me, the best bra solution for a backless dress is no bra :))
