The cat’s out of the bag: I love anything off the shoulder (as evidenced in June 2015,  September 2015, and recently a few weeks ago!) this off the shoulder ruffle dress is no exception.  I don’t want to be one of those people that’s like, “oh i liked off the shoulder before it was a thing” buuuuut I might have (also, it’s been a ‘thing’ for three years now).  I gravitated towards off the shoulder in high school, found ways to wear it in college and started to really embrace the trend post-college.  In my youth, I loved when Spirit Week had an 80s day – because i could wear my cut-off, off the shoulder sweatshirt.  It’s my go-to silhouette time and time again.

Lucky for me, Nordstrom has about as many off the shoulder dresses and tops as you can imagine.  Because the trend has been at the forefront of fashion for so long now, I wanted to mix it up and bit and I thought this off the shoulder ruffle dress by Topshop at Nordstrom was the perfect solution.  Ruffles are another huge trend right now (basically, drama is in…and I love it) so I thought it was a great way to incorporate an old and new trend at an unbelievable price point (this dress is under $75!).  If you’re new to Topshop, please note the UK sizing and it does tend to run a little small.  I’m a true 2 and I usually have to go up to a 4 in Topshop.

  1. I love the look of them, but how do you keep them in place, especially with your kids? Everytime I wear one, I end up tugging it down all day/night. And with my kids, it’s a disaster…never in the right place.
