Coming at ya with a lil instagram roundup for the last week! I guess I’m not the only one LOVING all things off the shoulder because so many of you have been asking me how to buy these 2 tops!
First off, this lemon print is everything. I can’t tell you the last time I purchased anything at Forever 21 but when I saw this top I gave it a try and I’m so glad I did (I actually purchased 4 other things, so clearly they’re doing better lately in my eyes!)
The fabric is really soft and this OTS actually stays off the shoulder…which is great.
It has a great fit and an elastic waist so you could easily wear it with more of a crop top style.
For reference I’m wearing a regular size L. Unfortunately the regular sizes don’t show up online anymore so your best bet is in the store…but if you’re my size you could totally get away with the “plus” sized version in the smallest size.
Second look of this insta roundup is arguably my husband’s favorite. It just screams “date night!” This top from Nordstrom zips up the back with a built in corset style bra. The sleeves hang dramatically off the shoulder for a unique, definitely more sexy look. A look like this typically takes me outside of my comfort zone, but it’s casual enough it can be dressed up or down. I’d LOVE this with white denim, too. I just might do that next time! I wore this to dinner on a Friday night and got a ton of compliments from strangers and my husband. 🙂
Let me know what your favorite spring trends are!
Do you love all things off shoulder like me?
Until next time!
Love & Light,
Friends, if you invest in one thing this fashion season, make it a military jacket.
There is SO many things you can do with this versatile piece! Today I styled mine over a basic fit and flare dress (and the coolest kicks maybe ever!) I love this jacket with a tulle skirt (yup!), black skinnies, over a maxi dress you rocked over the summer, or even over a blouse and pencil skirt combo for a business casual work look! See what I mean now? VERSATILITY!
The accessories in this look were so fun. I love the sneakers-with-dresses look and these shoes remind me of soccer cleats a little but I LOVE THEM! I also have the all white version (see previous post) and I’m obsessed! So happy the Superstar’s made a comeback! This olive fringe bag was on major clearance at Target a few weeks ago, and I couldn’t resist. And chokers are EVERYWHERE this fall, except at my house. This is actually a headband! Haha! Work with what ya got, right?
I love the nineties looks that are so in for fall, and this one channels that vibe perfectly. I added a nude matte lip (and resting bitch face..haha!) with straight hair to complete this fall look.
Let me know what you think of this look in the comments below!
Today’s post is one I’ve wanted to show for awhile! Only problem was, I didn’t have the right dress. (Thank goodness for spontaneous trips to Target at 9:30pm!) Here’s a quick backstory: a few months ago Cathy (“Poor Little It Girl”), an amazing fashion goddess whom I’ve adored for years, posted a look that included an absolutely stunning burgundy floral dress she wore to a wedding that also stuck out because it was from Abercrombie & Fitch. I don’t tend to think of A&F when I think formal wedding guest attire, but she killed it in this dress (see her look here), and since then I’ve been on the hunt for something similar. Her post was last September and the look screamed fall colors, but the level of my obsession with that dress was so real I decided whenever I found something I considered comparable I’d have to post it.
Well, VOILA! Meet my 9:30pm-we’re-here-for-water-and-yogurt Target find! In the CLEARANCE racks, of all places! I’d actually (sort of) forgotten I was looking for something burgundy with a floral pattern until I saw this and my obsession forced me to place it ever so gingerly into my giant red cart. Oh, and it was $13. Thirteen dollars!!
Another part of this look I have to mention are these accessories. This bag. Oh, all the heart eye emojis for this bag. It is similar (very similar!) to a Chloe bag I absolutely love..that’s also $1300. This one I spotted on Nordstrom’s website for $36…but it was sold out. I was in Nordstrom last week and lo and behold I found the exact bag! Moral of this story is, go check the store even when the site says “not sold in stores”. I see you Nordstrom!
These shoes are also available at Nordstrom, like pretty much these exact shoes. Same shade of nude/blush, same grommet details, same awesome lace-up look. Except they’re $99, which is not horrible but it is when you find these for $30 😉
When pieces have lots of “trendy” things about them, it’s always my motto to see where you can find it for less. These shoes are amaze but how long will I truly want to wear them? I’d hate myself much less for wearing $30 shoes for a few months than spending $100 on them and shoving them to the back of my closet. This dress has a very 70’s vibe which is a big spring/summer trend this year, and of course florals always tend to remind me of spring, even though they’ve been big all year!
It’s all about balance. My purse and shoes were more than my dress in this case, but none were over $50! My hat is old, my dress was on clearance, my lipstick is drugstore. People often ask me how I put outfits together and it’s really just collecting items until something clicks. I bought this purse last week, the shoes a couple weeks before that, and the dress 2 days ago. But as soon as I bought the dress, it all went “CLICK” in my head. And here we are!
I couldn’t find this dress on Target’s website but check out your clearance racks for it! I linked similar versions below, along with a link to my exact shoes and purse (the purse is currently sold out online but if you love it try the store!)
