As you can all probably guess by now, I’ve officially jumped on board with the “off shoulder top” trend and I don’t regret it! This one is my first and it’s from Banana Republic. I have a card that ties to Old Navy, BR, and Gap and at the time they were giving a 40% discount on all pieces for card members…clearly couldn’t pass it up. At least that’s what I like to tell myself haha.
I actually chose to wear this outfit to my sisters graduation this weekend! At first I spent a lot of time looking for fun dresses to wear. I looked at maxis, prints, feminine, fun, all types of dresses. None of them really grabbed my attention and I just felt like I would blend in with any that I choose to wear. So I decided to mix it up with this fun striped top, white jeans and black flats. I felt so classic but trendy at the same time. I actually spent a lot of time looking for the perfect off the shoulder top as well. I didn’t want anything that would make me look too “young” and I feel like I hit the jackpot with this particular one. The stripes enables the outfit to be classic and (somewhat) professional looking. I’m laughing while I type “professional looking” because who am I kidding.
You could definitely dress this up with a necklace as well! This time around I choose to wear earrings because they seemed to match so perfectly. They are from Kendra Scott and are the periwinkle color. I’m working on growing my bracelet collection currently so I didn’t have any for this outfit, but couple of gold ones to accent the gold around the earrings and the gold on the flats would have been amazing and I would definitely recommend it if you want to re-create this look!
