off the shoulder obsession

There’s no use in denying I have a thing for off-the-shoulder. Since it’s my absolute favorite style to sport in the spring and summer, I’ve ended up with a backlog of tops that have to be stowed away during the colder months. That should have been my indication to slow down. Key word: should. My mom and I came across this red beauty in Forever 21 a few weeks ago, and I had to bring it home! Inspired to find a way to get a little more wear out of it before switching over to seaters and scarves, I paired it with my favorite skinny jeans and some warm leather accents. It’s a perfect ensemble during this time of year – when days are still warm but you’re over cutoffs and tanks. (Super jealous if you’re already in cold weather!)

Speaking of warm leather accents, I snagged this how belt from Target and have worn it tirelessly. It goes perfectly with my favorite cross body and even compliments my riding boots! I also throw on this classic  J.Crew belt (that’s 25% off right now with the code TGIFALL) when I need something a little more simple. Leather accents are always a fall favorite of mine, as they mimic an equestrian look and are an easy way to pull together an outfit. Here are a few of my favorite below!

Love from Texas,


P.S. I can’t thank those of you who voted for the boy enough! He came in 2nd place, and I am so, so proud! He posted this picture to his Instagram with a message of gratitude for all of you who cheered him on! Seriously, SO thankful for y’all. :)

Join in on the fun!


  1. Oh my, this is just darling! I think I need to start adding some off the shoulder things to my wardrobe after seeing this.
