SHOULDER BARING

Off the shoulder dresses and tops are probably this season’s hottest trend. I actually bought this dress last year and was excited they restocked it so I could share it with you. The best part…it is $20 and if it is your first time buying from Tobi you get 50% off your order.

The one thing I love about this dress is that the sleeves are separate from the body. You pull it on like you would a strapless dress and then slip your arms through the sleeves. One thing that drives me crazy about off the shoulder is when I raise my arms the whole thing pops up! Not with this dress!

It is very wide and drapy but the shoulder baring style balances out how flowy it is. I am short so a heel is a must for me with this style of dress so my body doesn’t get lost in the fabric.

Oh look, I am wearing these block heels again! I am just trying to prove how versatile they are! This is the cutest date night dress. I am planning to wear it out to dinner with Joe on our next night out.

I finished this look off with my neutral chain strap bag and a pair of simple gold thin hoops!

Memorial Day weekend in NJ means heading to the beaches and spending time with family and friends! I know what you are thinking, but no, it is not like an episode of Jersey Shore. Ok, it is a little but not how we do it! Ok again, maybe a little when we go out for drinks when the kids are down. But I have grown up going to the shore and my family has a house down there and it truly is my happy place. On that note, something else that makes me happy- off the shoulder everything! I am rounding up some amazing off the shoulder tops and dresses to get you ready for the long weekend and the kick off to summer! And everything is ON SALE!

DENIM JUMPSUIT

When I saw this denim jumpsuit I just knew I had to have it. I love jumpsuits and rompers because it is one piece and so comfortable at the same time! I have so many pairs of jeans and I really like how this denim romper is so soft and easy to wear.

My husband got mine from Lulu’s and since he bought it most sizes are sold out but I found it fully stocked at Nordstrom! The light wash chambray makes this piece perfect for spring and summer. I think it runs slightly bigger but I actually like my jumpsuits to be a little bigger to avoid them looking like a giant catsuit. Especially this one in denim; I think it looks way classier when it is a little bit slouchy. I would order your true size. I am wearing an XS for reference.

I paired it with my nude block heels that I have worn over and over again this season. I just love block heels recently. Not only are they on trend but they are much more comfortable than a stiletto.  This jumpsuit screamed the need for a hoop earring. I do not know why- maybe it is the 70’s aspect of it but I added my geo hoops from Free People. They are so thin and blend in a little which I love because it makes them feel dainty and not too show stopping. Also, have you all tried Chrysmela Extra? They are “locking” earring backs that give your heavy earrings an extra boost and also prevent them from falling off. I have a review coming soon!

My striped clutch is from a couple years ago but I linked some options below, one of which is my exact bag but on eBay. I try and post things that are available for purchase however I do not buy things to only wear once, so sometimes you will see things that are old! If that is the case I will always give similar options.
