Off the Shoulder Obsessed

old navy white jeansI don’t typically consider myself a ‘trendy‘ person, as I think most trends fade just as quickly as they come. However, one thing that I can totally get on board with is off-the-shoulder tops, or cold-shoulder tops. The difference between the two is that off-the-shoulder tops completely bare your shoulders, versus only cut-outs for cold-shoulder tops.

I wore my favorite off-the-shoulder top in this post, and ever since I’ve been obsessed with similar styles! I think baring your shoulders is super feminine and girly, which is what I absolutely love! There’s so many cute styles and you can pair them with jeans, skirts, or shorts. I’ve honestly been gravitating towards everything off-the-shoulder – including dresses!

I stumbled upon this cute number (also here in so many colors) at Nordstrom Rack, and wore it to dinner the exact same day. The flutter sleeves add just that extra touch, and of course – you can never go wrong with stripes! I’m thinking of pairing this top with olive green denim and gold heels for a night out with friends, next!

Also, this bag. When I first ordered it, I was just so-so – but when it arrived I absolutely loved it! I get so many compliments, and honestly can’t recommend it enough. The color is gorgeous, and It’s not too small or not too big where everything gets lost!

What’s your favorite trend this summer?!
