Burgundy Stripe OTS Dress + Link Up

It's still hot and humid here in NC so off the shoulder (OTS) little dresses are still the best solution!

  I wish I could start wearing some of the cute Fall pieces I recently bought, but there is no way.  It's so hot, that even my son's soccer practice has been cancelled due to heat advisories. 

I have been wearing little booties with some of my looks though, and I think they'd be adorable with this dress.  The burgundy color is just gorgeous!

If you follow us on Instagram or Snapchat (two), then you know we just got back from a Disney cruise!  We were with my in-laws and my sister-in-law and her 3 boys.  A party of 10!!! It was so much fun and we packed a lot of things into the quick 4 day cruise.  We stopped at Atlantis, in the Bahamas, first and did all the water slides in their water park.  Then we stopped at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, where we took a boat out to snorkel at a reef and then we stopped at a natural sand bar in the middle of the ocean.  It was absolutely amazing.  The water in the Bahamas is crystal clear and the sand is so soft, unlike anywhere else I've been.   Some of us also rented jet skis for an hour and rode out in the ocean.  My husband and son love to go super fast and do tricks!    

The service on the Disney cruise was outstanding.  They really do give you the royal treatment and do an amazing job at keeping the ship clean.  
We made some great memories. 

Do you see the little wild black cat who decided to get in the pictures!!! This was totally not planned.  Actually my daughter who was taking the pictures was getting a little freaked out by him.  She's more of a dog lover and wanted nothing to do with him when he started walking towards her!! HeHe!
