One popular spring fashion trend right now is to show a little shoulder. I have shown you a little off the shoulder and a little cold shoulder, but today is all about my long time favorite the one shoulder look. I have always had a special place in my fashion loving heart for a one shoulder piece. So of course since they are popular right now, I’m wanting to buy all of them.
I find these tops to be really comfortable. With off the shoulders, you often can have limited arm movement or the top keeps popping up and cold shoulder is usually long sleeve so I am not going to want to wear much in a Texas summer. I mean these aren’t deal breaker reasons for me because I’m totally still buying them, but it’s why I’m happy to see one shoulder tops coming in strong this season too. One shoulders can be sleeveless for hot days, and that one strap means no dealing with keeping your top in place or limited arm movement.
Right now, many of them have these really pretty ruffle details on the shoulder. I love the scalloped and embroidered details on this red one shoulder top. A small sizing note on this one, I typically size up with this site because of UK sizing to a US6, but with this one I went with my regular size of US4. It has a lot of material in the middle, so the smaller size kept it from looking too bulky.
Before you run off to start your day, I have to mention a few really good sales going on right now!

Living in Texas, I have taken my fair share of road trips over the years. I feel like I have a comfy travel outfit down pat. A few weeks ago, you may remember I ventured a little under 3 hours to my college town, Nacogdoches. I wanted to be all kinds of comfy for the drive, so I immediately grabbed for my new comfy pink tee. The material is so soft, and I am currently loving all things in this soft pink shade. I also added in a lace bralette. A friend turned me on to them last year on another road trip. These bralettes are really lightweight and comfy, and they allow you to wear slouchy or open back tees without worrying about ugly bra straps showing. This one is only $20 so I bought a neutral color and decided to try it out. I have loved wearing it under various tops. It only provides minimal support, so it may not work if you need a little extra support. I just saw it comes in a few more color options now too.
For most road trips, I opt to wear a comfy pair of jeans. You never know where you will be stopping along the way, and I want to look decent. I find AG jeans to be really comfy and have a good amount of stretch without losing their shape. They are a pricier brand, but well worth it in my opinion. Every now and again, I opt to go even comfier than jeans. For my latest trip, I wore leggings and a long cardigan with this top because it was really cold that weekend.
Road trip shoes need to be two things – comfy and slip ons. I always take my shoes off in the car, because I much prefer to be barefoot. These sneakers and my Tory Burch sandals are what you will often find me wearing on road trips. All you need after that is good music, a few snacks, and maybe a little reading material, and you are all set for a road trip! Ya’ll have a good rest of your day, and thanks for swinging by!

Happy Friday!! I am so excited for this weekend, because I am heading back to my college town with some of my gal pals. My college sorority ZTA is celebrating 40 years at Stephen F. Austin with a huge alum gathering. I am so excited to see old friends, reminisce about the good old days, and visit the sorority house I called home for half of my college years. I haven’t been back in forever, so I can’t wait to get there!
But before I start packing 2-3 bags for a weekend stay 😉 just kidding (maybe), let’s talk about the cutest tee ever. I have been looking to add a few casual tees to my wardrobe. Something for those days when I just want to be super comfy, still super cute, and not in a dress. I love pretty much everything with a cold shoulder, but the bows on this one sold it for me. Okay and the $25 price tag. I love that the bows make it fun and different and amp up this outfit a little bit. I had to pair this ensemble with some gray heels, but I think this outfit would be cute with black sandals too.
Okay ya’ll have a great weekend. I am going to start packing, and we will meet back here Monday where I am sharing a different kind of post, but one I am really excited to write! Thanks for stopping by today!!
