TIP OF THE DAY: DRESSING UP AN OFF-THE-SHOULDER BLOUSE
Howdy ya'll! I'm going to be completely honest..... I don't want Summer to End! I feel as if I was just getting started with my Summer Wardrobe! I am not ready to trade in my sandals for some closed toe boots! This month is my last chance to wear anything that shows some skin, or keeps me cool. One of which is this off-the-shoulder embroidered top.
Here is how I dressed up my simple off-the-shoulder blouse.
As you can see, this off-the-shoulder blouse is SIMPLE! What makes it a bit more "upscale" is the embroidery that is detailed on the blouse. However, it is very possible to dress down this blouse by throwing on some black thong sandals.
THAT IS NOT WHAT WE WANT TO DO HERE!
The first thing you want to do is NOT wear flat sandals; thong, gladiator, strappy, etc. It doesn't mean that flat sandals won't add style to this look, it just won't give it the same effect compared to what a heel wedge would give. Try a wedged heel from Elaine Turner (a Texas gal herself!!).
Aren't they gorgeous!!!???
Focus on your handbag. I picked this shoulder bag in peach or pastel pink (whatever color your eyes see, haha) because this color is great for Summer! It's fun, and cheery. This kind of classic style bag, and the color are timeless! You can use a bag like this time and time again! Great investment!
You can always throw on a variety of accessories to dazzle up this outfit. It really depends on which direction you want to go in and what kind of event your attending. A dinner/lunch date, you might want to add some bling round your neck and wrists. I decided to keep it simple with a ring and bangle bracelet to keep this look effortlessly chic.
And there you have it! Dressing up a simple off the shoulder blouse with minimal effort and accessories. You can always take this look to another level by switching out high waist blue jean shorts with dress shorts.
