Happy Friday! I first want to start off today’s post with just a huge moment of gratitude for all of the positive, kind, encouraging, sweet, and genuine feedback I received in regards to Wednesday’s post. Truly, from the bottom of my heart… thank you. What a gift it is to know that us women are all created differently, yet sometimes so similarly deep down, and that we are not alone in our struggles. Creating this safe little space on the internet to put that out in the open is such an incredible blessing to me. You. Da. Best.
So ladies, it’s the weekend! Let’s celebrate! It’s supposed to be warm out! If not in your neck of the woods, just crank up the heat and pretend! Today’s a short but sweet post on a trend I’m loving… off the shoulder tops & dresses.
I’m seeing them everywhere. And I’m ok with it. I happen to think a lady’s shoulder is so stunning, no matter your shape or size. It’s easy to be self-concious about arms, tummies, and legs… but a woman’s shoulder is just so lovely, you can’t help but show it off a bit. I also like how it shows a bit more skin, but you’re still covered up on the arms. Also, the loose flow of the style means things aren’t skin tight. That said, that may simulatnaously be my biggest concern with the trend. I’m fearful that because the style is boxy, that my waist will be lost and I’ll be entering into muumuu zone. Don’t get me wrong, I love the flowy look on so many ladies, but for my body type I need to show off that I have a waist. But I love the idea of a little tuck in, as shown below.
So… I’m on the hunt for one that I can call mine! I’ve linked these photos for inspiration and some shopping links as well. I also think I’ll explore VICI, which is a local boutique to me, but you can order online too!
What do you think? Are you on board with the off the shoulder? If so, do you have any top picks on your wish list or that you’ve purchased? Let a girl know!
