Off the shoulders


Although off-shoulder tops have quickly been turned into one of these “fashun-blogger-thangs”, I have to admit that I’ve favourited them ever since randomly ordering one of my LBDs with an off-shoulder style a while ago. Let’s face it: off-shoulder tops are 2015’s pointy lace-up flats, 2014’s espadrilles, 2013’s neon-pleated-everything pieces.

But I can’t help it. As much as I cringe about all the stereotypes I embrace with love and mutual self-irony in these pictures*, there’s something feminine but casual with off-shoulder pieces, which I absolutely enjoy going for at the moment. As I don’t see a chance of getting sunburnt (and something that looks like a tan afterwards) in near future (which secretly makes me just a tiny bit depressed…), I like this way of not covering my paleness at 27 degrees! Free the shoulders!

My favourite is here.

*count my live teddybear in as the cherry on top – you might recognise little spider pug (she goes by the name Froilain/Fräulein) from the endless Snapchat stories (@lapulcinella) I tend to create whenever I’m around her ♥︎
