I don’t think I’ll ever get over how beautiful and charming San Francisco is! It is so different from where I lived previously. Being able to see the ocean every day is still so crazy to me, and walking up and down the steep streets doesn’t seem has bad when there is charm everywhere you look. I love the rose covered garage doors, bright pink houses and marbled walls scattered throughout the city. I feel blessed to call this home, and it makes me excited to explore and fall in love with new cities all over the world.
I know it’s summer and all-black isn’t what a lot of people think to reach for.. but I always feel the most “me” in an all-black look. I love switching up my look depending on my mood. Sometimes I want to feel extra girly so I throw on some white lace, other days I want to wear a high fashion look I saw on the runway. Some days I’m super laid back and boho, and sometimes my edgier side comes out and I throw on some OTK lace-up boots. I don’t think you should ever have to label yourself as one style.
I wore this top on Snapchat a couple weeks ago and got so many messages asking where I got it. It has definitely been my go-to top lately because it’s perfect for so many different occasions. I’ll have to admit, at first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the sleeves being detached, but have realized that it’s actually genius! I have always loved off the shoulder tops and love that they are having their “moment” in the fashion scene right now. The one thing that turns me off about most OTS tops is that if you raise your arms the sleeves will come up onto the shoulders. Anyone else have this issue? Well this top totally eliminates that! Plus I can also wear the top without the sleeves for a completely different look. It’s really 2 shirts in one, and I can appreciate that. The back is also SO CUTE. You guys know how much I love a good back, and the slit on the back of this top is so cute for summer days. It pairs perfectly with my peach cross body bag from Violet Ray. And yes, I do have the exact same Violet Ray bag in 2 colors – sue me.
