repeat offender | off-the-shoulder top

At first, I wasn’t totally sold on the off-the-shoulder style. I now own four different off-the-shoulder shirts, so obviously I got over it. But my biggest hesitation was how practical is this, really? I have two small boys and I’m not looking to flash the entire playground because they pulled down my shirt that had no straps on it. Thankfully that hasn’t happened (knock on wood).

I’ve styled an off-the-shoulder top two ways, because when you find one you like, and the kiddos can’t yank down… it’s bound to be a repeat offender.

‘taking the kiddos to the aquarium’ look

LOCATION | Parking Garage near the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey, CA


| hat – local Breckenridge shop | shirt – H&M (similar, similar) | shorts – Gap (newer version) | sneakers – Nike |

‘the day date’ look

LOCATION  | Monterey Plaza Hotel + iced coffee from Studio Cafe, Monterey CA


| shirt – H&M (similar, similar) | jeans – J.Crew | sandals – Nine West |

    Oh my goodness. This look is super cute. I saw a top like this at Target and loved it, but didn’t know if it looked like "Dorthy from Wizard of Oz," or "picnic ready." haha. BUT you styled it SO cute. Now I’m sold on gingham, so thank you! 🙂 Also, thank you so much for the sweet comment off my blog. Community means so much to me, and I love being apart of that group via FB! Have a wonderful day.

      aw, you’re sweet! I think that shirt is definitely a little ‘Wizard of Oz’ but I’m kinda okay with that! But only because I really do love the fit of that shirt!!

    I love this outfit so much on you! I am still hesitant on this trend because of the bra situation! haha.

      I run on the small, ehmmm, side – so my fav is a bandeau bra! It’s comfy too!

    I too am skeptical about the cold shoulder look but that top is super cute! I love the way you paired it with white shorts and comfortable shoes. I am all about comfort!
