Off The Shoulder


As I was writing the title for the post I mis-typed it as 'over the shoulder' and instantly the phrase 'over the shoulder boulder holder' popped into my head and made me lol - anyone else used to be obsessed with the Georgia Nicholson books? I kind of want to take a trip down memory lane and read them again, but something tells me they probably wouldn't be quite as good as I thought they were at the time. 

Anyway...this outfit. I love the off the shoulder trend that popped up everywhere as soon as we saw the slightest hint of sun, but I have quite broad shoulders so it can be difficult for me to pull off. I think I just about get away with it with this top though because it's quite floaty. Plus I would probably have bought it anyway because I love the pattern and the colour - red is my favourite colour but I hardly ever wear it anymore, I guess I've got more safe in my old age! 

The good news is that I've managed to do an outfit post without wearing white trainers, the bad news is that I am yet again wearing my Joni jeans, but I guess it just goes to show what my real wardrobe staples are. I couldn't really wear this top with anything else because it's so floaty I felt like I needed skinny jeans to offset that. 

Let's talk about the shoes...these are from last summer and were my absolute favourites then and they've resurfaced and become my absolute favourites again. They're so comfy for wedges and so supportive too and I can actually manage the 40 minute walk to work in them without hobbling/crying. Plus I like the height because it makes my legs look a little less like two little stumps!

Jeans - Topshop (here)
Shoes - Asos (old)

What do you think of this outfit? Are you a fan of the off the shoulder trend?

  10. Not a book, but "over the shoulder" reminded me of a song :) You look lovely with this top and the hair looks great! I wish I could copy this hairstyle, but I am not that talented! Loved the shoes too, very sweet outfit!
