Hello friends! I hope you had a good weekend. Apparently I did because I was up before 7 today and I’m using exclamation points within the first paragraph. Mind you, it’s Monday so this is incredible. I truly believe there is nothing a little weekend and a lot of coffee can’t fix. 
I’ve been seeing off the shoulder everywhere and wanted to try the style out. I decided to go with two options for summer: a white crisp silhouette and this simple black version, which actually feels / fits like a tee. This trend caught me by surprise this season but now I’m such a fan of this look. Perhaps it’s because I am a child of the 80s / 90s and I had a few Barbies with similar tops and dresses. No, not perhaps — that’s actually 100% why. I’m also waiting for the color peach to come back in a big way, too. Fingers crossed for next spring.

  1. Kendi! you look so beautiful in this post (you always do of course!) but love the black off the shoulders. What a great outfit!! Hope you and Brian are having a great summer so far! xoxo

  2. SO PRETTY! I love this on you. And I like that this top doesn’t have the weird spaghetti straps on the shoulders. I like the off the shoulder tops better without.

  3. I love this outfit! Pairing the off the shoulder shirt with a bit of a longer skirt is a great idea too because then they balance each other!

  4. Last time I wore something off the shoulder (a red sweater, to be exact), I caught the eye of my now-husband, so I know this look has some serious power to it. 🙂 You look gorgeous!

  6. Tough love: The second to last picture is stunning. You are SOOOO truly beautiful when you aren’t making prune face and your clothes fit.

  8. Agreed! Been seeing off the shoulder everywhere! I just wrote about it today, haha. Def a summer trend, so many of which have a 70’s-ish kind of vibe. So fun!

  14. I want this look for me. It’s so elegant, so feminine. This is going to be my look for this summer. Thanks for the idea. By the way this look has a very ” Italian holiday ” feel to it.

  16. Do you do anything to keep the top in place on your arms? I’m debating about keeping this because whenever I raise my arms even a little, it slips up onto my shoulders!

    1. well this one has pretty tight elastic, but yes it does come up a little if I move my arms above my shoulders (like if I was putting a bun up or something). I don’t know if any solution to this, but if I think of something clever, I’ll let you know 😉
