dreamy blush top

There’s something about the warm, ladylike shade of blush that always manages to catch my eye. It seems to somehow embody the perfect mix of classic, feminine and neutral while looking completely effortless and delightfully whimsical. Throw all of that onto a gorgeous silhouette, and you’ve got yourself a piece you’ll never want to take off! At least, that’s been my personal experience with this ruffled off the shoulder beauty


TOP   blush off-the-shoulder top (wearing XS)   |   JEANS   white bell bottom jeans (under $30)   |   BAG   tory burch crossbody/clutch (I’m obsessed with mine!)   |   SHOES   lace up platforms (sold out Steve Madden, similar linked)   |   BRACELET   gold wrap bracelet   |   NECKLACE   akola project necklace

With off-the-shoulder silhouettes coming into such popularity this season, there’s now a huge selection (see here) for us aficionados to choose from! That means that I get to be picky whenever I come across the style, unlike last summer where I grabbed anything off-the-shoulder that I could find. So to keep myself from winding up with a closet full of off-the-shoulder, I’ve tempered my taste to select only the most amazing pieces (both in style and cost) that I come across. And this blush top, my friends, absolutely makes my short list.

The ruffled neckline immediately sets this beauty part from the myriad of other off-the-shoulder pieces, as well as providing an immediately flattering, unique touch. I adore the billowy, light cut and have found it to add a special flare, making it look far more expensive than it is. Which brings me to my third point… the cost! At $54, this is a piece that you will get so much wear out of, but without the guilt.

Something tells me it’s going to sell out quick, so I’d act fast if I were you! I’m in an XS.

Happy Friday, friends! I’m so excited to be staying put in Dallas this weekend after what feels like a couple months of non-stop travel! My sister is coming into town from college to celebrate my mama’s birthday, and I couldn’t be more excited. Needless to say, we’ve got lots of shopping, cake-eating and crawfish-boiling ahead! Wishing you all lots of fun and safety!

Love from Texas,


P.S. Every girl needs a fab pair of white flare jeans for summer, and the pair I have on in today’s post is under $30, incredibly flattering and great quality! They fit true to size. Go get ’em!

Join in on the fun!
