Moody Style: Off The Shoulder Chambray Dress

Happy Friday Eve Luvs! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so ready for a vacation! Although I’m looking forward to 3-day weekend coming up for Memorial Day, I think I’m gonna try to add in a couple more vacation days just for my own sanity. Anyone else feeling like they need a break?

If there is one hot trend to follow along this spring/summer, it’s definitely the off-the-shoulder trend! And this trend is so easy to follow, because just about every retail store has an off-the-shoulder top, dress or romper/jumpsuit for sale right now.  I’m a little obsessed with the off the shoulder trend, so when I found this J.Crew OTS dress it was a no brainer for me. I immediately fell in love with it after I saw another girl trying it on in the fitting room and I just had to buy it. I love simple dresses like this because you can just grab it and go and still look stylish without too much fuss. This cute dress is perfect for a date night with some strappy sandals, brunch with friends paired with espadrille wedges or a quick stroll in the park with some lace-up flats. 

I am wearing a size 4 here and I’m really happy with the fit, but I do think the dress runs a little large. I normally wear a size 6 in most of the dresses from J.Crew, so you may have to size down if you decide to get it. One thing that I love about this dress is that the fabric is really soft. It looks like it could be heavier because of the darker wash, but it’s really lightweight and comfortable. Another thing I love about this dress is the price. This dress is $88 which is insane for a fairly new dress from J.Crew especially since most of their dresses are over $100. I got this dress during a promotion, so all together I think a got a great quality dress for a really good price and I highly recommend getting one for yourself. And if you’re hesitant about this chambray one, then you can check out this yellow one that’s beautiful for summer and this new ruffled one in red – I might have to get this one next. 

Well, let me know what you guys think about the off the shoulder trend! Do you love it or hate it? Are any of you guys thinking about getting this dress? If you do, I would love to see how you styled it, so send me a picture. Have safe and fabulous weekends, friends!

Love from Florida,
Moody Girl

Moody Picks: Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts For Under $100

I swear Mother’s Day always seems to sneak up on me year after year.  Is anyone else in the same boat?  Well, don’t worry because I put together a quick last minute Mother’s Day gift guide for all of you procrastinators who's still searching for the perfect gift.  This year I found 25 beautiful gifts that mom will absolutely love and they are all under $100.  Check out the photo below to shop this year’s picks and be prepared to make her day.  Because if there’s one thing that mom really loves, is any gift that came from you. 

And if your mom prefers experiences instead of an actual gift, here are a few ideas on how to spend time with your mom on Mother’s Day:

1. Spa Day: Take your mom to her favorite day spa for a day of pampering.  You can schedule a relaxing massage followed by a facial or a mani-pedi to make sure that your mom leaves the spa feeling fresh and fabulous.

2. Workout and Brunch: Treat your mom to a fun day with some physical activities. Whether it’s sightseeing a new town on a bike tour, going for a walk/run in a new location, signing her up to attend new fitness class or trying out a local rock-climbing gym. Afterwards, grab a smoothie or a healthy meal at her favorite brunch spot.

3. A New Class and Dinner: Surprise your mom with an art or crafting class that she’s been dying to try or you and your mom can sharpen your cooking skills by signing up for a cooking class.  For example, I think an activity like Painting with a Twist followed by dinner could be a fun Mother’s Day activity.

Moody Style: How to Wear a Lace Top

White lace tops are everywhere this season and this $20 lace mock neck top that I found was too perfect to pass up. I’ve seen similar lace tops on other bloggers before like this Self-Portrait version worn by Mary over on Happily Grey, but couldn’t justify paying the hefty price tag.  So when I saw this one at SheIn, I had to order one for myself.  The lace detail in this top is feminine and chic and the silhouette is flattering on all body types.  I decided to wear this top with a pair of distressed skinny jeans and my favorite pair of leopard heels.  I opted to add a camisole underneath to make it more office friendly or you could wear it with your bra exposed for an edgier look.  Since the weather is warming up pretty quickly, you can swap out the jeans for a pair of cut off denim shorts and add a pair of sandals like these and these to transition into summer.

Love from Florida,
Moody Girl
