Hello STYLEanthropy readers! It’s the first day of summer and I’m celebrating by sharing with you this pretty off shoulder pom pom summer dress. These photos were taken with an old iPhone – so I apologize! We went to the River Arts Festival here in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago. And since it was hot and there were so many people, we decided to just take phone photos and not bring the big ‘ol SLR. The important thing is to share this super cute dress that’s only $48. Oh, and it’s a perfect swimsuit coverup or vacation dress too.
Off Shoulder Pom Pom Summer Dress
I got this off shoulder dress with a pom pom trim before our trip to Virginia Beach a couple of weeks back. I thought it was the perfect pool and beach dress. It’s super easy to get in and out of. You can wear a swimsuit underneath and take it off when you’re ready for a dip. Then slip back in when you’re ready to dine al fresco or wander the board walk. Ahh… Writing about this makes me miss the beach! Speaking of which, I’m working on thousands of photos and narrowing it down to finally share our VA Beach trip soon!
Colorful Summer Fashion
This dress is actually a dark navy color. But the embroidery details are in orange, pink, and white. If you like to stick to dark or plain colored dresses, this is actually a great way to introduce color to your summer wardrobe. Summer is all about color and I understand that not everybody is into a colorful closet. So perhaps colorful trims are the way to go. They are subtle but still give you that much needed “bright and sunshine” this time of the year! Obviously, pom poms are always fun for summer season and this summer dress got that down to a tee!
Again, I apologize for the photos. I am a little embarrassed… especially that I had to blur out all the people! LOL! But hey, how fun are these colorful umbrellas, right? I just wish this installation stays all year long. They are just way too cute and make for a colorful background!
What I Wore
- River Island pom pom trim bardot dress
- Austin earrings (comes in a couple of colors + also love this beaded version) c/o
- Star necklace (comes in a set and now on sale for $20, GREAT DEAL)
- Pineapple tote (it’s only $20 and super roomy for the beach or pool; the other tote is c/o Hask Hair)
- Striped Bow slides (under $25, true to size, and SUPER COMFY)
Since this dress is almost sold out with only a few sizes left, I’m sharing other options of summer dresses from the same brand below. I’m eyeing a few of them too. So perhaps we’ll be twinsies if something caught your eye.
Summer Dress Options
What are you summer vacation plans this year? I have a couple lined up. Also headed to DC in a couple of days. I’ve already been there several times. But if you live in the area, please leave me some recommendations. There are always new places to try out. So I’d love to hear what’s good now. Perhaps I’ll be wearing a summer dress from my choices above too. Thank you for dropping by and I hope you have a wonderful summer season. Until the next post. Xo, Cris.
