I wore this outfit on our last night in London before we left for New York. It was a momentous occasion for us, having been working behind the scenes for so long planning our move to the states, and also saying farewell for now to our home in London.
Like every woman who adores fashion, for special occasions I LOVE to dress up and feel special, I got this top a while ago but hadn’t worn it yet, so this felt like the right time to test run it!
The off the shoulder trend is really flattering for all body types, so I have totally embraced it this season. I’m not one to follow all trends, I tend to stick to modern classics, and then adopt a trend if it suits my body shape and even then I will look for what will last in to future seasons by choosing colours that work time and time again, that way I’m getting the most out of my purchase. I tend to go for classics like white, black, navy, brown or grey and steer clear of patterns and trends together because I find they date really quickly and go out of fashion fast! As I’ve gotten older when I shop I want to buy things that will last me over the years not just for one season.
For me what’s also important is still having some coverage whilst revealing my shoulders, and this top is perfect because of the long sleeves, particularly because I wanted to wear it with a skirt, if I’m going to have my legs out I like to have coverage on my top half- that’s just what’s comfortable for me and what I look for when I’m styling my clothes.
Here I’ve styled my off the shoulder blouse with a plain black skirt and my current favourite accessories for summer-Nude!
