Getting Away From It All (Including Excess Fabric) In An Off The Shoulder Dress

posted on: Thursday, February 23, 2017

Feeling the freedom in the Mink Pink Casablanca off the shoulder dress.

Sometimes when I read the titles of my posts, I crack myself the fuck up. Other times, I seriously wonder why this blog has any visitors.


& that’s when I realise I need to take a break.


Which is exactly what I did a few weeks ago. But it doesn’t seem to have made any profound improvement. I did manage to get some photos done (& flash my ass to a group of strangers & burn my shoulders) while frolicking along the beaches of the south west in this Mink Pink piece though.


Definitely my favourite off the shoulder dress at the moment. Red shoulders & all.

  • Well for what its worth the pictures are beautiful ! and I like that dress, I’d wear it in a heartbeat.

  • The name of your blog is so cute haha. I’m loving the dress and that view… really beats this New England winter storm I’m about to go through! Can’t wait to follow your future stories 🙂

    Xx, Hannah

  • Hahaha, you post title is on point and yes, I did chuckle from the tummy region. So, you’re not alone. The dress is so flowy, I love it and the print is versatile. I’m sorry it was so hot you got burnt! As for the posterior flashing, I’m sure they don’t mind because it’s near the ocean. Everyone should get their bums exposed once in a while if only accidentally. It teaches that life doesn’t judge except for some humans who don’t like their own bums. Heheh. Oh btw, I love the pose with you looking at the camera. Those eyes! <3

  • Gorgeous photos! And I LOVE your dress!

  • Ohhh this shoot was definitely worth burning your shoulders and flashing strangers for – magic, as always! So envious of your tan right now, and I can’t imagine a more peaceful setting. Just perfect!

  • Shannon! You are totally rocking the off-the-shoulder style and I’m loving it. The pattern is totally cute, too.

  • Flashing strangers and sunburns don’t come to mind when looking at these gorgeous photos though!

  • Beautiful beach and i really love that beach :))

  • Such a gorgeous dress, and what an awesome location! I am loving all these off-the-shoulder dresses you have linked, looking at them makes me super excited for spring and summer, thanks for sharing!!

    Ouch! I hope your burn is doing okay! Now you have me curious as to how you managed to flash a bunch of strangers lol. Loving this beach look and that GIF at the end is seriously perfect! I wish I had a beach vacation coming up but I don’t even have one planned this year. Hopefully over the summer I can find a 5 day stretch to maybe go on a short one. I love your blog babe and I hope you’re not getting down on yourself about it. Keep doing what you’re doing because you have great content and I love visiting it!

  • Wow that gif at the end of the post was def the best way to end a blogpost!

    Oh Dear Bumblebees

  • Wow! Love that dress!! So so gorgeous!

  • These photos look great. Definitely worth the annoying events that accompanied it hehehehe! (Maybe not the sunburn. That’s no bueno)


  • That is a really cute dress, even if you did get a little burnt you got some great photos! 🙂

    Everyone needs a break now and then. And if it means you come back with even more funny blog titles thought up then it was a good break 😉

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend 🙂
