Off the Shoulder Top

Hello there! Today I am sharing this J.Crew Off the Shoulder Top – perfect for spring/summer. I am so happy to see that the off the shoulder trend is still in full swing this year- I don’t want it to ever go away! Nautical stripes are my favorite, especially when it comes to planning for our annual trip to Nantucket…this cute little number will definitely be packed!

White jeans are a basic when spring comes around (even if snow is still on the ground!). This pair is pretty affordable, and oh so comfy! I chose to wear my lace up flats for this look, but I will definitely be pairing wedges for summer date nights!

I hope you all are having an amazing week! It’s been a crazy packed month, but I am certain to be updating my blog more now that Sparkle Studio preparation is slowing down. I miss you all so much!

J.Crew Ruffled Top

Adding more fun to my closet has been a goal of mine for a while now. I am a sucker for staples and pieces of clothing that are worth the investment. But, every now and then when you find a flirty or fun piece that you love- you just have to go with it.

That’s what I did when I found this J.Crew ruffled top! Navy has been a color I have been lusting over all summer/fall, so it was a given I could easily see myself wearing this for season’s to come. The ruffled sleeves are a flirty accent to the otherwise simple top, and can be transitioned from fall to winter to summer.

I paired the top with one of my favorite go-to’s this fall, a suede skirt. It gets so cold so quickly in the fall, but I try my best to still incorporate dresses and skirts into my ordinary jean and sweater life once the season starts! Tucked in, the top and skirt are a great outfit to wear with heels for date night or with boots during the day!

How was everyone’s weekend? Friday night I had my aunt and uncle’s annual Halloween party. It’s so cute how they decorate their loft in the city to be all spooky – frames are turned crooked, cobwebs line the ceilings, and little (fake) critters can be found all over the place haha. I dressed up as the Day of the Dead – did you see it on Snap?! Though I wasn’t too into dressing up this year, I had so much fun painting my face and celebrating!

I hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween!
