Bare Shoulders










Off the shoulder tops are one of many trends I was very excited to try this season. I've always admired the way they look on other people, but given that I've always been a little insecure about my wide shoulders, it wasn't a trend I immediately jumped on. I actually find them sort of awkward to wear, and personally I think they take some time to get use to.

I really like this particular one by Lord & Taylor because the back has an adorable keyhole tie closure and can easily be adjusted, allowing the top to actually stay in place. I typically only wear off the shoulder tops on days I don't plan on doing much running around, as I find they aren't always the most comfortable. Either way, I love how cute they look and really look forward to getting some more this Spring/Summer.

What's your thoughts on off the shoulder tops? Let me know in the comments below! 


Stay blissful!:-)

  1. You look so cute and fun in this ensemble Ella! I particularly love the off the shoulder top with its blue stripes. I too find some of them uncomfortable to wear, but when I do find one that is comfortable for the most part, it's a winner!

  15. ELA--lookin' so fly in that off shoulder!! it's kind of sad i haven't even bought one for the season yet!! it's insane, i know. and what? i call myself a fashion blogger haha! i love the striped on you are wearing, i think mrsjenfrick has an off shoulder white striped one she is posting soon, and y'all are such inspos to me.. making me feel like i need a striped off shoulder now! but they are hard to wear. like try putting your hair in a pony tail... or high fiving someone... and girl, at this age.. i'm like if it requires a strapless. i gotta think twice. LOL. i love seeing those jeans on you. they just didn't look right on me when i tried them based off your picture. and those sunnies, what a steal!!! hope you had a great wkend chickadee! xoxo,

  23. You should never feel too insecure to wear an off-the-shoulder top because this looks amazing on you! I agree though, they are a little uncomfortable to wear. I basically avoid getting anything from the top cupboard when I'm wearing one. lol.
