I swore against any more off the shoulder tops…I think I might have mentioned no more chambray as well, but i mean…who’s keeping count! As much as I am ready for Fall, I couldn’t pass up this ADORABLE off-the-shoulder top!
It generally has a strapless top feel, and a little bit of an open back. I think i have a slight fear of open backs because I’m a little too practical for it…I just gotta feel like I can indulge in Mexican at ANY moment. Also, the bra situation kind of gets out of control too. What I loved about this top was that even though it had an open back concept it still covered my bra in the back where the zipper was! Anything that looks fussy but is really manageable is a win in my book.
The crop of this top was my FAVORITE! I’m 5’10” so finding anything that has a cropped look but won’t show my stomach is SO difficult. It fell just at the top my jeans making it easy to wear anywhere. Again with the practicality! It’s a curse, y’all!
The week after having a three day weekend is the BEST! I missed being at work; call me crazy, but I really did! I’ve got a busy week ahead, but I’m pumped for it. I’ve been wanting to tackle the “white on white” trend for a really long time, and was finally inspired enough to figure it out over Memorial Day weekend. So here are a couple of tips to rocking white on white!
The absolute most important thing is to make sure both pieces you are wearing are a true white! I took these pieces into natural lighting, because few things are worse than white and ivory. If you want to do ivory on ivory…do it! But white against ivory just looks like one piece is dirty.
If you’re nervous to go full on Kim K, start with a piece that has a white base with a pattern on it. It’s a little on the safer side! If you ARE going full on, be sure to add some texture to the top or bottom! I found this top at Old Navy (not available online, but I have seen it in stores). The little pom poms and embroidered detail adds a little bit of dimension to break up the very monochromatic look! This top also comes in black, but that’s not super helpful for the purposes of this post!
I loved pairing this denim jacket with it! You can tie one around your waist to break up the colors, or you could just wear it normally (don’t tell the hipsters I said that).
As far as shoes go, stay in the neutral family! Something too bold will stick out and honestly, the outfit sticks out enough on its own! These are currently my FAVORITE heels from Old Navy (again, in stores).
Lastly, add a soft color via accessories like these fun tassel earrings!
Any white on white outfit is a guaranteed showstopper, and very on trend! Be bold enough to try it! Happy Wednesday, friends!

Happy Hump Day! It’s half way through the week (of a holiday weekend) and I ended this day the best way I knew how, with a pedicure! At work, the end of the week is just FUN. I get to visit one of our stores on Wednesday, Thursdays are for photo shoots and Fridays are for bloggers! I mean, they pay me to do this kind of thing, sometimes it doesn’t even feel fair…but hey, I’ll take it!
If you can’t yet tell by my Instagram, I’m obsessing a little bit over the off the shoulder trend. Nathan is about to cut me off from buying anymore! Another fun fact about me: I LOVE chambray/denim. My favorite color is pink, but my favorite color to WEAR is blue. Sky blue, to be exact. If someone gave me a laundry bag made out of chambray, I would pull it off the shoulder and throw on a statement necklace.
With ALL of that said: I bring to you an off the shoulder chambray top. I bet you weren’t expecting that! I found this top at Old Navy and they have it in a DRESS too! It was perfect for church on Sunday with white, distressed denim that I got at Dress Up (they’re my fav) and some nude heels…also from Dress Up! One of my favorite color combos is sky blue, white and light pink. I typically don’t wear pink, but I always throw it in with my accessories. Whether it’s a Kendra Scott necklace or a cute little cross-body! It’s just so girly and sweet.
