How to Wear the One Shoulder Trend

Converse Sneakers with Dresses

Dress: Viva Aviva | Earrings: Kate Spade | Shoes: Converse | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

TBH: I’ve fallen asleep three times while writing this post. I took a red eye from Phoenix back to D.C. on Saturday night and immediately headed to a blog event. I had an absolute blast at both, but boy am I wiped!

I’m keeping this post short and sweet today: I styled this dress for Rent the Runway’s fun spring collab back in March (yes, just getting around to posting it!) I’m kind of obsessed with both the one-shoulder details, and the abundance of ruffles. You know me, I love a good ruffle! I paired it with sneaks to dress it down, but it would look great for a wedding with some nude heels and a clutch.

Also: can anyone else believe it’s May right now? 2017 is flying by!
