Off the Shoulder

August 12, 2016

When you turn thirty you start to kick all insecurities out the door.  Thinking back to my teen and early twenties and I can’t believe how I let my insecurities take over.  I thought my legs were so ugly that I would never wear shorts, ashamed to wear a bikini, and to wide to wear my shoulders out.  Now I feel like my legs are my greatest asset, I wear a bikini (high waist) after having 2 kids, and rocking these shoulders.  You can’t tell me nothing!

Now don’t get me wrong, I still dress in pieces that work for my shape.  I still kept telling myself I couldn’t wear the off the shoulder trend.  After I saw similar tops on blogs and IG, I said eff it, and got me an off the shoulder top.  I’m in love.  If you get an off the should top make sure you have a good strapless bra.

Are you in to the off the shoulder trend?

    Such a cute look! I love the top and your curls or on point! I had the same mind set when I turned 40. I became more confident and the very things I didn’t like about myself where the things that made me stand out. You look amazing!

    You look lovely ! No doubt that after 40, I could really care less. God is great, and I’m just grateful to be on this side of heaven. Everything else—gravy. Be blessed.

    So true, I’m in my mid 30’s with 3 children and I’m not thinking about what other people think. Im way more secure now. I’ve always loved the off the shoulder look. I’m so glad it’s back. You look beautiful!

    You look amazing, loving that top!

    I have to be careful that I don’t look too trendy. I always try to balance trends with more classic pieces.

    This top is SO cute! I can’t recall the last time I’ve worn anything off-the-shoulder. Strapless, yes. But everyone I’ve seen rocking these off-the-shoulder dresses and tops this summer looks awesome!
