I Would If I Could…Cold Shoulder Top!

Hey everyone! You’ve probably seen many cold-shoulder tops this spring. I’ve tried on about 5 different versions of this top trying to find one that looked nice and hung well. This is a cute one!

This one I like because of the patterned fabric and it skimmed without clinging or billowing out. Why didn’t I get this top? I felt chilly in it! I’m just not at the point (or, really, Michigan is not at the point!) where I feel the need to show skin. I’m sure many of you are living where it’s nice and warm and this top makes sense, but I’m wearing a sweatshirt now as I write this and there is frost on the grass!

This shirt¬†below is a classic top with a twist. It’s a nice, basic top but has a bit of fun with the ties on the sleeves and the hem has some interest with the little kick flap. It’s also available in pink.

I didn’t get this top because I have a similar one and I ended up purchasing several others you’ll see on the blog soon. Ugh, the lighting in these dressing rooms make me look crazy!

So, there are a lot of cute shirts out now that are off the shoulder or have skinny little straps. I like the look, but know that there’s no way I can wear a strapless bra under them. So, I’m on the look out for cute shirts that we can wear and are flattering and have some of the fun, on-trend details, like these two. A couple more coming up soon! Happy Monday everyone!

  1. I have a top very similar to the navy one with little ties at the elbows, mine is made of a non iron sort of ruffle material, I couldn’t see what sort of material yours was.Mine was made by Roman, don’t know if you have them in U.S.

  2. Love the print on 1st top but IMO the hue is too warm for your skin tone. Would love to see you in bright cooler hues such as pink, cobalt blue, lilac. I’ve seen some
    cute cold shoulder/off shoulder top but hesitate to go there because of being too
    chilly in air conditioning although it’s warm here in so tx. I would like 1 or 2 of these in bright paisley prints but feel this trend/fad will be outdated in a year or
    two! Anyway can’t wait to see what you did purchase.

    1. You know Kay, I don’t own a lot of red so I’m not naturally drawn to it. I’m open to trying other colors but I think you might be right. Just a little too tomato-y for me. And this is definitely a trend, so if you try it, don’t spend a lot of money on them.

  3. The first top is adorable on you. I would have bought it and stashed it away ready for when the sun finally makes an appearance with you. The print and colour were really good for your skin tone and the shape is really flattering too Julia. Get right back there and snap it up before they’re all gone!

    And hey, isn’t it about time that these stores invested some money in good lighting for the changing rooms? Surely it would pay off in the long run as we’d all like how we look and probably buy so much more.
