Pink Shoulder

Happy August! This past weekend seemed to be the weekend of ALL weddings! So many friends got married this weekend. We attended one on Friday and Saturday evening as well as Mema’s 80th birthday party on Sunday. We need a nap!

Off-the-shoulder tops (OTS) are so hot this spring and summer season. Until recently, I’d try on one after another and they didn’t seem to be flattering on my body. I have an average-sized body type and work out consistently but it seemed like all the OTS tops I tried on had my arms spilling out over the top of the blouse, eww! Finally I walked into the ever esteemed Forever 21 and guess what? I decided to give THIS pink OTS top a try and I loved it! I now can see what all the hype is about! I felt so feminine, like this could be perfect for a dinner date out with the hubby. For a date night I’d pair it with THIS black choker necklace, tie my hair up in a ballet bun and throw on some RED lips (shade – Cruella). Since I recently purchased this top and we had a weekend full of wedding festivities I thought before I made it out for a dinner date in this flirty OTS top I’d blog about it first. It was 100 degrees while taking these pictures so please excuse my lack of pants, heels, and lipstick. I thought in the heat of a Sunday afternoon I’d show you how I dressed it down for a hot summer day.

Happy Monday! I’m currently sitting lakeside this weekend. We haven’t been out once this whole summer so I’ve been dying to come. The lake is my absolute favorite place. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Oklahoma or what but there’s something about being out at the lake that makes me feel like I’m escaping life even if just for a day or two. Don’t we all need relaxation every once in awhile?

This has been such a fun post. I recently purchased THESE converse and was wondering how I was going to style them. I loved the idea from other bloggers with taking a pair of white sneakers and throwing it together with a dress or skirt. It seems very 80s or 90s to me! Speaking of 90s, MY choker necklace is back in style. If someone would’ve told me this at the age of 7 they’d be cool again I would’ve kept a few! I loved them growing up and I think it’s so cool that things like white sneakers and choker necklaces we wore as kids are back in style today as adults. This skirt was a recent find from the TopShop collection. I love the cut-out lace detailing. I chose to dress it down in a fun way. This is a perfect summer wear! What are your thoughts on my 90s vibe summer outfit?
