Cold Shoulder

There’s nothing like a pop of red, or even ruffle for that matter, but lately, I have been investing in red. It pops, looks great in photo’s and events, and doesn’t show stains as much as white. I’m sold. Ruffle plus cold shoulder is a plus. This top hits all the boxes but sadly only a few sizes left. I really can’t wait for the weekend, we’re going to do a last minute stay cation. Any ideas where?

The really great thing about colder weather is all that lovely layering you get to do. And seeing as I’ve accumulated quite a few lovely scarves, shawls and kimonos, I have some great layering pieces. My very favorite trick to accessorizing a cold shoulder or off-the-shoulder dress or top is a scarf or shawl. If I were to name one, this lace and fringe number works every time. It provides a whimsical flair to an evening out, whether that be a quick stop for boba tea or dinner at Gjelina. Wherever you end up, you’ll feel chic and sophisticated. Quite honestly, this off-the-shoulder/shawl situation may become my fall go-to … it’s that good.

The cold shoulder tops aren’t going anywhere and here’s a fresh take on it. I’m loving the romantic floral print and breezy movement of this one. Don’t forget to check out the Elizabeth and James line up. It’s both inspiring and wearable–perfect for a mom on the go.

I usually shy away from hats. I’m not one hundred percent sure why, but I do. However, a trip to the dermatologist and a peek at Janessa Leone’s new line will have you jumping online to nab one yourself. As for black hats, I had an old favorite lying around so I paired it with a rust cold shoulder top and black flares. And did I mention the top is only $38 and also comes in ivory? A quick summer date night outfit with some SPF 30 broad spectrum to boot. Summer has officially begun.

Cold Shoulder Stripe

by Shalice Noel

DSC_1825   DSC_1843   Ironically, even though the calendar says Spring, I’m all about the sweaters lately. Chunky, sleeveless, oversize, cropped, and yes, cold shoulder. I want them all. And thanks to El Niño, we actually have an excuse to wear one. Score! I love a sweater that works dressed down with my favorite beat up grey chucks and dressed up with my olive square toe sandals. Options are good. Also key is the demure shoulder slit and slightly oversize fit to balance over skinny jeans. So flattering. A perfect marriage of stripe and cold shoulder love. Bon weekend everyone X
