SIMPLE & SHOULDERLESS

Details: TJ MAXX One Clothing off-the-shoulder mustard top, here  |

Off-the-shoulder tops and distressed denim have been my go-to summer staples all summer long. Every time I walk into Marshall’s, I seem to walk out with yet another, off-the-shoulder top. This one is a favorite because it’s super lightweight and loose fitting. It’s the season to be sans bra, and I love a top that allows me to feel free. I’ve had these boyfriend jeans for about 4 years and I haven’t found another pair I like half as much. Especially for the summer months! Enjoy the last month of summer by baring your shoulders in your favorite OFTS tops :).

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE SHOULDERS

I know that I’ve been saying this for a while now, but I think it’s actually safe to say that it is officially off-the-shoulder season. Remember the collar bone and cleavage trends? Where even if you didn’t have a bust, you would strap yourself into some double camis and over priced, over padded Victoria’s Secret bra. Ahh, nostalgia. Well, that trend has long been gone, but the past two summers it seems that the shoulders are getting their time to shine. I love bare shoulders. It’s a sexy yet tasteful way to bare some skin. The blush color coupled with bare shoulders is a definite spring 2017 statement. The only thing missing is a sun-kissed glow. TBD when that will happen. Since I styled this outfit after a snowstorm, I paired it with some distressed denim and booties, but it will be so much fun to style with wedges and cutoffs. I think my closet is ready for spring, I’m just not sure that my skin is. Call me Snow White for now.

BARE YOUR SHOULDERS THIS WINTER

As you may know, I could NOT stop wearing off the shoulder tops this summer. So you can imagine how distraught I was when I had to retire my shoulder bearing tops. When I found this navy and red plaid long sleeve top, I was stunned. My clothing prayers have been answered? A top that I could get away with during the fall/winter months while showing off my shoulders. Game changer! I have to say, this top is considerably thick, so to me, it’s almost like wearing a 3/4 sleeve top in the winter months– no big deal. One may think this would be too cold of a top to wear, but we wear dresses without tights and tops without sleeves during the winter months! I paired it with a simple pair of jeans, but you could also wear it tucked in with your favorite skirt. So for a casual night out, get your hands on this plaid top and you’ll feel as though you’re sailing the seas in the middle of July.

OFF-THE-SHOULDER OBSESSION CONTINUES

The Weather Man was wrong once again. Yesterday ended up being a perfect day spent with family and friends, closing out an amazing summer. As I was packing for the long weekend, I was sure to include sweatpants and jeans, but to my surprise, I ended up donning shorts and this off-the-shoulder blue and white striped top. I was even a little too warm in this! Who would’ve thought? This summer, I slowly created a collection of the off the shoulder pieces. From tops to rompers and everything in between, if there are no shoulders–I want it.  Typically, I hit the outlets for the Labor Day sales, but unfortunately, I’m not going to make it there this weekend. I did, however, purchase a couch. It’s just that, the Labor Day sale for a couch doesn’t feel as good as it does when I’m walking out of Banana Republic with 15 items all at 40-50% off (sigh). Today will consist of some more apartment shopping and a quick drive back up to Boston. Wish me luck! Oh, and for those hitting the shops, score something big for me!

TAKING IT OFF (THE SHOULDER)

Yesterday was the most miserable work day yet. It was painful getting out of bed after such a great holiday weekend, and I know that it wasn’t just me because everyone at work was just as miserable, if not more. Funny enough, I didn’t wear a single outfit I had planned to wear this weekend. When you’re on a lake and the only thing you need is a bathing suit during the day and a sweatshirt at night, there’s nothing more you need. It kind of felt good to just not think about what I was wearing. I wore two bathing suits all weekend and the same sweatshirt. While I enjoyed the simple and lax lake dress code, I did miss wearing this chambray off the shoulder top. It’s one of my favorite summer garments this season and these white denim Artist Crop pants are the perfect counterpart. It’s a simple classic look, but also sexy and sweet at the same time. It can be worn just as easily at a family BBQ as it can at your favorite intimate Italian restaurant. Instead of standard wedges, I went with these metallic gold slip-ons that I scored at Marshall’s. I especially love the white sole and espadrille combination–it elevates the slip-on. Since I didn’t don this outfit this holiday weekend, you can be sure that I will be wearing it several times this summer–maybe even too much!
