Off-The-Shoulder Sexy!

Greetings from the sky, LLMers! As you read this, I am in-route to Boston with my girlfriend, Leslie, so tomorrow we can catch the ferry to Nantucket to visit her mom for a few days and take in the island. THUS, since I’m just sitting here killing time on a plane, sipping some ginger ale, I thought I would share with you one of the outfits I packed for this fun girls’ trip!

Now, as you’re already pretty familiar with, I am usually a little bit hesitant about introducing any “trend” into my own personal breed of wardrobe . . . HOWEVER, after I spotted this little off-the-shoulder number in this spring’s J.Crew catalog, I was all in for this returning trend. PLUS, it didn’t hurt that I had a J.Crew gift card burning in my pocket. LOL!

As soon as I tried this playful top on, I immediately liked the way it felt AND loved the way I felt in it. Sexy almost! And that’s a lot coming from a nerdy gal like me ;)

The only other time in my life I ever remember wearing a top sort of like this was way back in elementary school; only it was a round neck top with its shoulders cut out.

For me, when an item of clothing highlights a particular area of skin, I like to counter it by having other areas of my body covered up, so it doesn’t look too contrived. That’s why I complimented this top with white jeans and these rose gold Vans slip-ons.

With the highlight of rose gold on my feet, I decided to further accessorize my look with my rose-gold matching Origami Owl necklace.

This hexagon-shaped, living locket has quickly became a favorite of mine — not only because I’m obsessed with rose gold and it matches my wedding ring perfectly, but also because I was able to customize it with my husband’s and our three furbabies’ birth stones. How sentimentally wonderfully is that?! And right now, through my friend, Stephanie Kelley with Origami Owl, you can receive a complimentary flamingo charm with your purchase! Just enter 312621 at checkout and Stephanie will separately send you your free charm of my hot pink, spirit animal.
