02 Jul Off The Shoulder Floral Top – A Subtle Patriotic Look
Well before I’m sweating “putty balls” ( my mom’s saying! still don’t know what it means 😉 ) I decided to wear my favorite jeans with one of my favorite off the shoulder floral tops. In the summer, I will mostly wear dresses, denim white shorts and my jean skirt, but from time to time, if we are going to be inside, whether it’s for a casual dinner or at the movies, I may wear jeans. Places here tend to crank the air conditioning in the summer. Not going for a full blown obvious red white and blue look, I opted for subtly with the top in navy , white, and red within the floral design.
If you follow the blog, you have probably realized, I like bold and colorful floral prints. This gorgeous print, from Zara, a few years ago.
What I try and look for in off the shoulder tops, are ones that can be worn both ways- on and off the shoulder, for more versatility. The main think I look for is the length of the top as well. I need length!
I know this is not “screaming HAPPY 4th of JULY”, but there is red, white and blue flowers, and I am wearing denim which is very Americana! I have a white bag, and my navy blue floral earrings are the perfect accent. It may not be classic 4th of July, but realize that you don’t have to wear stars and stripes to show your patriotism.
This was shot by our pool and the weather here has been more than pool-friendly! I’ll probably take a dip this week and get out my Giant Flamingo raft! You know the one that is wide enough for 2 adults and was all over instagram last year? I figured why not! i may have to go when there are less people, as it takes up just a wee bit of space! …and look, red and white pool chairs and umbrellas … see?
If the weather is too warm, i may substitute the jeans for a pair of blue jean shorts or my white denim shorts. A pair of linen pants would look lovely with this top as well, and keep you cool!
See the red, white and blue flowers and colors?
Do you wear off the shoulder tops? Do you prefer a more subtle look for the 4th of July or do you dress in red, white and blue?
