It’s now unofficially the start of summer and we are all ready for warmer weather and what better thing to wear with warm weather than an off shoulder top and white jeans. Off shoulder tops are a great look for the season but they sometimes have a tendency to drift up. This top stays in place very well unless I raise my arms above shoulder height but let’s be honest, haven’t we all worn an item at one time or another that while wearing it we needed to straighten, adjust, smooth or do something like that to it?
A great thing about this top to me is that it is long; I really like that! That means it can be worn comfortably over shorts or jeans – be they high rise or not – half tucked or not tucked at all. I think the tucked look is less casual and a bit sexier.
Last weekend it was sunny, pleasant and in the 70’s. This weekend? We had howling winds with gusts up to 50+ mph and I awoke to a dusting of snow on the ground and temps in the 30’s! I really was done with anything resembling winter but I guess Mother Nature told me. So instead of a nice spring outfit to share with you I had to go back to something to keep me warm in this cold and blustery weather.
The jeans and the boots are the only items that are currently still available. The jeans are skinny but the spandex and polyester in them let them hug not squeeze your body. Plus they are high rise which is a great fit for many body types but it’s the boots here that are stand outs. These Sorel boots are stylish, warm and waterproof. I can almost go without a sock when wearing them but I usually wear just a crew sock with them. I used to think Uggs were the warmest winter boots out here but these have them licked. They are nice and warm, have much more support for your foot and you can get them wet without worry or ugly water lines.
Now dear Spring, please come back!

Peacoats aren’t strictly blue anymore (although mine is). They come in a variety of beautiful colors today and you no longer have to raid your guys closet or the mens department for “boyfriend” jeans. We’ve got our own made to fit us.
