Shoulder-Baring Tops & Statement Earrings. The Must-Try for Spring.



I have been loving the off-the-shoulder/cold-shoulder trend lately, but haven’t really gotten to try it out due to freezing temps and snow here in Michigan.  Fortunately, we were just visiting my parents in Arizona where the temps are much nicer and I was able to rock my favorite combo: shoulder-baring tops and statement earrings.

I’ve always loved statement earrings and Greenlea is finally at an age where she won’t grab and pull at them.  I especially like the way they pair so nicely with bare shoulders and cut-out tops.  Here’s how I wore it:

Outfit #1: Cold-Shoulder Top & Cut-Offs






Floral Cold-Shoulder Top (similar top with long sleeves, and this top has wider straps if you’re opposed to spaghetti straps!)

Denim Cut-Offs (similar – I always buy about two sizes bigger than my normal size so they’re nice and slouchy!)

Mirrored Aviators

Earrings (crazy cheap earrings that I keep going back to over and over again!)

Metallic Clutch

Sandals (similar, or these are flat if you’re not into a heel!)

Tarte Matte Lip Tint in Fiery (actually feels great on your lips)

Outfit #2: Off The Shoulder Top & Surf Pants





Free People Off The Shoulder Top (now 25% off) Also available in a really pretty red color. *I ordered both an xs and a small and the small fit better . . . the xs was a little too tight in the belly.

Floral Surf Pants (similar)

Floral Earrings (I bought these for a bridesmaid to wear back in 2012 and loved them so much I kept them!  They are so versatile and haven’t tarnished a bit!)

Amrita Singh Bangles (these are my absolute favorite bangles ever because you can choose your size . . . my wrists are small so most sets of bracelets fall right off but these are perfectly sized)

Sunnies (similar)

Outfit #3: Cut-Out Top & Ankle Jeans






Cutout Shoulder Top (super soft, under $20 and also available in black, light grey, dark grey or red)

Jeans (similar)

Earrings (same pair I wore with previous outfit)


Flip-Flops (these are my go-to sandals for summer . . . they come in a TON of colors, are actually comfy and are currently on sale for UNDER $15)

Diaper Bag (this bag has been a lifesaver while traveling . . . it has stroller straps to hang your bag for easy access and is made of wipeable nylon . . . LOVE.)

We are currently going through post-vacation withdrawal as we came back to a HUGE snowstorm on St. Patty’s Day . . . I can’t wait for SPRING to get here!  In the meantime, here are some more tops and earrings that I’m lusting over:
