It’s that time again… CHIC AT EVERY AGE.  This month, we bring you the OFF THE SHOULDER TOP!!

For those of you that have just tuned in, this fab collab is exactly how it sounds… a chic chick in her 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s shows you how to style a piece in their own way. I’m working with some of my FAVORITE gals in Dallas!!

Happy Friday Y’all! This was another busy week! One of my best friends and my Goddaughter is visiting from Colorado, so we are enjoying every minute. You better believe Little M is trying to impress his older “cousin”. It’s the cutest thing! On Wednesday, I celebrated the opening of Longchamp at Northpark Center in Dallas and got to catch up with some blogger friends as well as make some new ones. I am so ready to sleep in (#wontreallyhappen) this weekend!

The off the shoulder top is a trend that’s here to stay, and I’m taking full advantage of it! Actually, I’ve styled this off the shoulder top with white skinny jeans and stacked heel sandals in this post. It’s really a fun top and so easy to wear. My friend, Mica, brought up an excellent point about finding the right undergarments. I invested in a good strapless bra that is comfortable and doesn’t “wander down”. LOL! It’s made all the difference. Also, nippies are another alternative that I use that are SUPER COMFY too.

THE STYLE Rx: An off the shoulder top is a wardrobe staple this season. Wear it with flare jeans, skinny jeans, cropped jeans, or a denim skirt. Just take a look at how all of my friends wore it! Everyone looks fabulous because it wears well on all ages!

Okay, so didn’t you adore meeting Brooke earlier this month? I just love how she styled the top with a long necklace and tucked into flares. My outfit was worn to the ‘Putting on the Pink’ luncheon. It’s fairly simple with a vintage necklace, wide leg pants, and a clutch. Heather looks retro chic with a denim skirt and major flatforms. Cathy’s is my favorite look – I’m LOVE all white. She kills it with cropped jeans, a gorgeous link necklace, and nude wedges.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Tuesday Y’all! Hope y’all had a fabulous weekend! We had such a blast at our friends’ wedding. If you follow on Snapchat, then you got a glimpse of the bride arriving on a horse! The ceremony was so beautiful, and we enjoyed breathtaking views at their lakehouse! Plus, Little M was dancing his heart out to the Spazmatics! It was the cutest thing!! He didn’t want to leave (and neither did I) but it was WAY PAST his bedtime. The next day was Little M’s Baptism. He did so well despite being sleep deprived. We feel blessed! <3 Yesterday, I co-hosted a pop-up jewelry trunk show with Bishop and Holland for Lele Sadoughi in Dallas. We had a lot of fun chatting, shopping, and playing dress up with all of the fabulous jewelry!

So, here is ANOTHER off the shoulder top! (Last week, I shared a fun denim off the shoulder top in this post.) I wasn’t lying… I’m bananas for them. This off the shoulder tunic was so easy with a pair of skinny jeans and fun accessories. Isn’t that fortune cookie necklace darling? It even came with a fortune! How can an Asian gal resist a fortune cookie that last FOREVER?! LOL! Anyway, it was great to layer with a choker and pendant necklace.

THE STYLE Rx: An off the shoulder tunic is a fabulously versatile piece for Spring and Summer. It’s easy to “white out” with a pair of white skinny jeans or flares. Keep it casual with a pair of boyfriend jeans and flat sandals. Tuck it into culottes or high waisted pants for a completely different look!

Are you impressed with that wall mural done by Katie Murray? I drove past it one day and nearly wrecked my car trying to see it! Just kidding… and Little M wasn’t with me. But really, I did a u-turn and jumped out of my car to take a picture of it. And I’ve wanted to shoot some blog pictures with it since then. I LOVE that it’s in Fort Worth!

It’s a great reminder to KEEP DREAMING! I wouldn’t be doing all of these amazing things, like styling for a magazine, if it weren’t for the blog and my family encouraging me to continue with my passion! So keep dreaming and see where it gets you! {I know that sounds cheesy, but I’m such a romantic at heart and love stories with happy endings!}

Also, I’m going to be changing my posting days to Tuesday and Friday. I was trying to keep up with Monday, Wednesday, Friday but it has been too much with everything else going on! Usually, I schedule my posts at 6:00am. You may have noticed they were being posted at all different times… because I couldn’t keep up!

Can’t wait for you to see this top again on Friday with my favorite gals. ;)

Hip Hip Hooray! It’s Fri-YAY! Hope y’all had a FABULOUS week! Mine has been quite busy, and it’s going to continue through the weekend. We are headed to our friends’ out-of-town wedding on Saturday, and Little M is getting baptized on Sunday! We are so excited about BOTH!

I’ve been meaning to post about this off the shoulder denim top from Milk & Honey Boutique that I purchased during my Girls Weekend last month! It’s denim. #yay. It’s off the shoulder. #yay. It’s a crop top. #NOTyay. My solution to wearing these cute but a-little-too-shrunken tops is to pair them with high-waisted pants/ skirts/ culottes/ shorts. Voila! No midriffs here.

To say that I’m obsessed with off the shoulder tops is a bit of an understatement. A fashion friend once told me, “Everyone has beautiful shoulders!” #SoTrue. Plus, you can hide any jiggle arms in the sleeves. It’s the perfect balance of showing just enough skin, but not too much! I also love this tunic which is perfect for wearing over skinny jeans or flares. (BTW, you’ll see that top on a few other upcoming posts!)

To keep the look sophisticated, I added a gorgeous mother of pearl pendant. (It’s the one that I was raving about in this post!) This is the second way it can be worn! P.S. Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I LOVE Julie Vos pieces, and she uses a special technique so that the gold doesn’t fade. I’ve had my first bracelet for over a year, and it looks brand new. Just sayin’… Momma would appreciate it!

THE STYLE Rx: Show your shoulders some love with an off the shoulder top! Tip: Brush some bronzer with shimmer on your decolletage for an added glow!

Have you fallen for the off the shoulder trend? How do you wear it?
