Taking a break from work wear today to show you an ‘off duty‘ look that I have been loving lately. I have to admit; I bought these Kate Spade glitter keds the moment I saw them. I may be thirty now (yikes by the way!?) but my inner child absolutely refuses to let me give up glitter anytime I can find a way to wear it and still look like an adult.

But I digress. Today what I really wanted to talk about was the off the shoulder shirt trend. This trend is everywhere. Unlike my instant love for my glitter keds, I did not like off-the-shoulder tops… until this one. Off-the-shoulder, as a general trend, does not provide a lot of coverage/support to your chest– a big problem in my books. I also *despise* any clothing that I have to fiddle with or pull at all day long. This style almost always require you to pull (up or down, depending on the shirt) every few minutes in order to keep the shirt sitting where it should.

Not this top. This top is AWESOME. The thin straps that are added to this top are a definite fashion game changer. They allow the look of a flowy off-the-shoulder sleeve, but the shirt stays in place all day long. I also love the sweetheart cut to the chest – which is much more flattering than the straight across cut of most off-the-shoulder tops. 

What do you all think of the off-the-shoulder trend? And do you think this particular style makes the trend more wearable? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. Happy (almost) weekend everyone!

    I agree, that top was a great find! I finally succumbed to the off shoulder trend myself (can be seen on my blog tomorrow), but unfortunately I did have to fiddle and full with getting my top to stay in place! I liked the top, but that part was not fun! Also, I LOVE those glitter sneakers!! They are fabulous :).


  5. I think everyone needs a white off-shoulder or cold-shoulder top this Summer and yours is so nice. Those Kate Spade sneakers are simply stunning!

    I love this top! You're right- straps on shirts like these make all the difference. I have a dress thats a similar style that I wear all the time!

  8. I absolutely love this! That top is so pretty with the jean shorts, and the Kate Spade Keds look awesome with this outfit!
