Sans Bra in a Dashiki Halter Dress

I recently had a conversation with a friend about how I'm uncomfortable wearing clothes that expose my shoulders, back, and arms because I'm extra meaty on top. It was last year when I wore a t-shirt underneath the dashiki dress. This year, I'm not even wearing a bra! My fabulous and forty self esteem is up (ha) and that's really all that matters.

I feel pretty body confident in the convertible dashiki dress worn halter style. I've been singing the same old song for so long I forgot to stop and reevaluate the situation. I actually like the dress better than I did with the tee underneath. Last time, I put a lot of focus on ways to wear it and cover my bra straps because I couldn't fathom not wearing a bra. Eek!

The straps of the dress are super long. I was able to wrap it around me and then use the tails to somewhat hoist the DDs up. It was rather freeing. I haven't gone braless in at least a decade. I don't think it will work all summer long but glad to know the option is there.

While I was looking for jewelry to wear, I discovered my long lost lion pin and had to find some way to work it in. Front and center is a good of a place as any. Lions and african prints belong together or at least they do in my world. It appeals to my thrift kooky side.

I changed up my footwear too. I completed the look with natural colored wedge sandals which are a better match than the silver sandals worn previously.

All remixes should turn out this good.

Do you wear halter style dresses? Are you braless this summer?
