Oh y’all. This top. I have to say, it’s a breath of fresh air in the off-the-shoulder-everything world we’ve been living in! (Not complaining, but I’m quickly running out of justifications for adding another to my closet..) Everything about this top, from the smocked neckline and ruffled hem to the under $100 price tag make it such a standout, and one of my favorite pieces of the season!

I’m thrilled to debut it with my newest bag purchase… this tassel tory burch crossbody! I’ve been on the hunt for a new tan crossbody (I wear them relentlessly) for a while now, and the second I came across this beauty, with it’s braided strap and tassel zipper, I was sold! I’ve been wearing it non-stop ever since, and have to say it has been the perfect complement to everything I’ve had on. Don’t you love when you don’t have to think twice about your bag since it’s so versatile? This is one of those, and then some!

I’m working hard today to get a new YouTube video up for y’all tomorrow and I’m so excited  about it… be sure to check back in the morning to see!

Love from Texas,

    That pink top is TOO cute! It looks so great on you! On another note, I think I need that bag- it is so adorable! It reminds of Kate Spade purses that came out last year!

    I couldn’t agree more! This top is absolutely fabulous and when the world has gone off the shoulder it can be hard to resist buying them all! But you had a great find with this one! Thank you for sharing.

    Wow, I so relate with you on finding excuses to by yet another off-the-shoulder top. I am definitely obsessed and need an intervention. Also, you can never go wrong with a Tory bag! I love your blog by the way, I am so glad I came across it the other day.
    Much love,
