Turning Heads #linkup -Rust Maxi Off The Shoulder Dress with Metallics







IMG_7615 IMG_7607

Hello Ladies!

Glad you are here for Turning Heads Tuesday. Another hot day! I am not complaining, but maybe I need to do a “How to Make Pictures Look Great Even with Sweat Pouring Down Your Back” Post!  That is not me today, but I am just preparing for the summer to come. Ha!  Today was another score from H&M. They do have some fun fashions this year, and I couldn’t resist the rust color. Ok, that and the off the shoulder fashion. And the two slits in the front to add some sexiness and self-imposed air conditioning.  I bought this during  the Memorial Day weekend sales for $30 shipped.

I do like metallics especially with ” safari colors” .. Not the proper term.. But olives, tans, camel, and in this case, rust. There are plenty of other ways to incorporate this trend, but find it appealing here, with a mix of bronze with my Sylca beaded necklace and earrings. I also wanted to add the tan/camel tones of my favorite fringe sandals, which are getting a lot of wear this season, and the leopard clutch, another staple to my wardrobe.

The over the shoulder trend is one I am fond of. I think it adds some sexiness to a summer top or dress, without being overtly so. So, the combination of off the shoulder, rust color and the fact that it was a maxi dress made it a no brainer for me, when it came to purchasing!

Did you buy any items during the Memorial Day Sale? How do you incorporate these trends into your closet ( if you do) Over the Shoulder, Maxi dress, Metallics?

    This rust colour looks wonderful against your hair Jess. It’s a great dress on it’s own, but with all of these accessories – the leopard clutch, the chunky belt, the tassel sandals and your perfect jewellery – well it’s an awesome look today. You look amazing! Thanks as ever for the opportunity to join in the linkup party x

    I saw your dress online and thought it looked nice. But the picture really didnot do as much justice as you have especially how you styled it with the animal print clutch!

    Thank you so much for the feature, Jess! I’m so pleased you liked the outfit last week. I’ve got houseguests this week, so no post yet!

    ALSO! OMG how amazing is this rust dress on you? It looks like it was made for you, the cut, the length, the details, and especially that colour with your stunning hair! I love everything about it, and am so envious of how well you wear this colour. Just gorgeous.

    This color looks beautiful on you, Jess. I like the boho feel of this entire look and the way you styled it, especially your fun fringed sandals. I purchased Way too many things during all of the Memorial Day sales, but it was well worth it.

    Wow Jess…you really know how to make a statement—this dress is powerful!!
    Last time I pulled out this color for my mom to wear on the blog—she kept saying that it’s a fall color, so I’m glad you’re showing how it’s not!! Any color—any season!
    thanks so much for hosting!

    Such a great maxi dress! The color is beautiful, and I really like the accessories you paired with it. And off-the-shoulder looks great on you! I’m still a bit hesitant to give the off-the-shoulder trend a go as I remember having an off-the-shoulder top years ago that just wouldn’t stay in place and drove me crazy…

    That rust color is fabulous on you, Jess! And I love the pairing of metallic. And the way the leopard print of your clutch and the tortoise on your glasses play against the colors and metals and textures is just gorgeous!
