MY STYLE: DIY Shirt Dress

Happy hump Wednesday loves. We're already midway through a short work week- woot! I extended my 4-day Easter weekend by an additional day to catch up on some much needed rest but because I'm such a busy body, I didn't actually rest. Either way, it was great to be out of the office (as always).

In my last post, I mentioned that I was slightly obsessed with the latest off-the-shoulder trend. I have yet to see an off-the-shoulder item that I dislike. With that said, I went on YouTube and found this video showing me how to quickly and easily transform a button-down shirt into an off-the-shoulder top. In this case, I transformed a men's shirt into a shirt dress (slightly shorter version but cute). I paired it with some not so new fringe heels and my everyday Michael Kors bag (mini-suitcase). I LOVE how the entire outfit turned out. Do you?

MY STYLE: Off the Shoulder

Happy almost the long weekend loves! It's almost time for the long Easter weekend and whatever your plans, I hope that throughout the weekend, you remember the true meaning of Easter.

This is my third post in a row trending in an off-the-shoulder top. If you've been following me for a while, firstly, thank you for doing so and secondly, you know I'm not big on following trends but I do love the current off-the-shoulder trend. In as little as a week, I've somehow acquired 6 of these tops, in different styles of course. In my last two posts, I shared the denim top and black top, both which were made by my awesome seamstress.

By the way, do you see how much more comfortable and confident I've become about wearing shorts? Look at that!

MY STYLE:: Denim Off-The-Shoulder

Hey loves! Happy Tuesday!!

So here I am again with another custom-made off-the-shoulder top and there will be more to come. Of course, if I have the option to have something made verses ordering online, shipping, waiting etc., then I always choose to get it made, if I can. Off the shoulder tops are trending heavily at the moment and they are the perfect wardrobe pieces for the Spring. Paired with shorts, there are even better for sunny, beach days or lunch by the sea.

I decided to use the back side (wrong side) of this denim fabric to make the top instead of the right side because the right side was a very sharp blue. Perhaps I'll use the right side for something else.

At the end of the shoot I just couldn't deal with those heels anymore so I switch out into something a lot more comfy--my trusty white Converse

MY STYLE: Casual Monday

Tweet Loves! Just dropping in with a quick style post in a casual Monday outfit. Off-the-shoulder ruffle tops seem to be trending heavily now--I guess in preparation for the nearing Spring. Of course this style of top is not a new one but one that has popped up on the scene again. History surely does repeat itself.

Although I'm an ad-hoc, non-strategic shopper, I hesitated to jump on the bandwagon to purchase any of these tops simply because they're so basic and easy to make. The unfortunate part is that although they are easy to make and I own a sewing machine, I still pester my seamstress who always willingly make pieces for me.
