I’ve been really working this summer to simplify + streamline my style a bit. My goal has been to focus on adding only core staples to my wardrobe that I can wear over and over again. I first bought the chambray version of this top (see it in action here) and found myself shocked by how much I wore it. With jeans is the obvious choice, but it also tucks quite nicely into skirts and is really cute paired with cut-offs and flat sandals. This is basically going to be my new version of jeans and a tee. It’s slightly more polished but just as comfortable (no worrying about having a big lunch with this top… it hides all sins!)
I really like how an off the shoulder top looks paired with a bandana. I bought this silk one at Intermix and it’s pretty perfect. I personally find a silky scarf to be a little more manageable than a cotton bandana (it’s less bulky) but Urban Outfitters has the best selection of bandanas right this way.
I hope you guys are having a great week. Last night I got to attend an advance screening of The Light Between Oceans (opening Friday). It was so incredibly sad. I read the book over the weekend so that I would be prepared (I mean, you can never see the movie before reading the book!) and cried my eyes out. And then I cried my eyes out again. It had an all star cast (Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz) – highly recommend!
PS – if you are looking for a less expensive version of this top, this one (while navy blue) is a dead ringer!
