spring & summer style – off the shoulder & all white
What a gorgeous day it is in Texas! Feels like spring/summer, which comes and go all year round in this state. During my drive to work this morning, an 18-wheeler truck was riding beside me. When I perked up, I saw a dog’s reflection on the sideview mirror! Oh my goodness, the dog is the darnest thing ever! The dog’s head was sticking out with the two front paws crossed over the window and tongue flapping along the wind’s rhythm. He was absolutely adorable and looked extremely joyous. With the wind blowing the fur and the sun shining on his face, the little things in life cause the largest impacts. This precious moment made my morning or even my day. Take the time and observe all the blessings around you, which are typically missed because these are everyday blessings. Learn to be mindful and take notice. Be grateful and be humble. xoxo
Okay, this blog post’s motif is fashion, but the talkative side of me just want to share the joy experienced this morning and hopefully will bring a smile to your face.
Off the shoulder looks are still in this season, so time to bring out last year’s tops and recycle! Here, I am wearing a white poplin off the shoulder top [bought last year] with large roll-up cuffs on the sleeves. The structured cuffs and collars add dimensions to the shirt instead of the typical loose fitting poplin shirts, which tend to make me look pregnant.. Oh, the knot! Tying a knot along the waist ensures the pregnancy look is long gone when wearing this poplin top because the fabric has a stiffer texture and does not flow well. Meaning, the shirt gives the body structure versus the shirt complementing the body’s figure.
White on white is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I want y’all to be receptive about the style. Additionally, when wearing all white, it gives off a nice beachy, summery feel. Plus, adding a colored accessory to the look, undoubtedly, the accessory will shine bright like a star! Hence, I am wearing my pink patent leather loafers and contrasting them with my emerald grained calfskin handbag, showing them off 🙂 . Make sure you wear the best accessories because all eyes will be on them, for sure!
Hmm, the accessories on the Celine bag are silver, but as seen, I am wearing gold accessories! Don’t be afraid of mixing different metal tones. BE BOLD & BE YOU!
