Striped Off the Shoulder Top

Hi babes! Have you tried the ever-popular off the shoulder style yet? SheIn sent me this top and it’s one of my favorites right now. I’ll tell you 3 reasons why at the bottom of this post. 😉

I hope you’ve all enjoyed your weekend. I wore this cute little top on Saturday and it was so comfortable. We went to see the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie and I absolutely loved it! Baby Groot was so adorable!! If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it.

Anyway, y’all know I love pieces that are both comfy and cute, and this off the shoulder blouse is definitely one of them. Even though it’s a little billowy, the vertical stripes keep it slimming.

Haven’t tried the off the shoulder trend yet? I’ll tell you exactly why you need to:

  1. Off the shoulder tops are super flattering. Shoulders are usually a body part that women don’t have many hangups about, so why not show them off? While I might not be ready to show my legs in shorts yet, I’m proud to say that my shoulders are in amazing shape (Ha, but really!). I also feel like it hides the bigger part of my arms that I am self-conscious about.
  2. They’re the perfect way to show a little skin. It’s almost Summer, and it’s hot outside. But unless you’re 18, you probably don’t want to walk around baring a lot of skin. This cut looks appropriate for any age and will also give you all the Summer vibes.
  3. Your shoulders will not look broad. I think that might be why a lot of women are scared to try this style, but I actually found the opposite to be true for me. I feel like this cut actually makes my frame look more narrow. However, if you still feel self-conscious, try wearing your hair down and stay away from styles that have a lot of ruffles, as that can add more volume.

Have I convinced you yet? Step out of your comfort zone and try an off the shoulder top this Summer! 🙂

Hi babes! I have been DYING to share this post with all of you! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have promised some exciting new things coming to the blog. Well, all of that begins with Pinterest. I am stepping up my Pinterest game, and I can’t wait to connect with all of you on there! I am also beginning to revamp my posts. Think more how-to’s, where to’s, favorites,etc. I can’t wait for this new phase of VFB, and to kick it all off, I’m sharing what I believe is “The Perfect OTS Dress” with you.

For starters, “OTS” stands for “off the shoulder,” a style that is really trending this Spring/Summer. I am a huge fan of OTS tops and dresses because I feel that they are so flattering! My arms are something that I have been a little self-conscious about lately. I am really trying to get back into some healthy habits and lose a few pounds… hopefully in my arms and lower body (like I get to choose, ha) because I feel like both areas are something that I want to improve. So lately I haven’t been wearing many tanks or strapless pieces. Instead, I’ve been opting for tops and dresses with an off the shoulder or cold shoulder design.

RaeLynn’s Boutique sent me this dress and I cannot say enough good things about it. First, it’s red (which I love to wear), has a great floral print, and has an off the shoulder flounce. I got a lot of compliments when I wore it on Saturday, and I think part of that was because of the great fit. My hips are a little wider, but this dress came in just right at my waist and then flowed out, creating the perfect silhouette. I think it would look great on any figure, hence the title, “The Perfect OTS Dress!” When shopping at RaeLynn’s Boutique, you can use the code ‘savilla15’ for 15% off through the month of May.

And don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest. 😉

Happy Monday loves! I don’t know about you guys, but for me, Monday is usually the hardest day to get motivated. However, I have to say that today I have been on my game! I had a great, productive day at work, came home and caught up on a little schoolwork, and now I’m getting in a blog post, all before 5PM! (If only I had gotten to the gym too… sigh. There’s always tomorrow… or next month. ;)) I’m not sure what’s gotten into me today, but here’s hoping I can keep this productivity train rolling all week!

If you have an Instagram account, you’ve probably seen this top because t has been one of the most popular styles this season. SheIn sent this one to me, and I am so obsessed! This particular blouse is only $15, also comes in blue, and is still available in all sizes! I think the one shoulder neckline with the ruffles is so feminine and sweet. I just loved the way it looked! I paired it with these Skye + Grace earrings with I also just adore. They are so lightweight and cute. I totally forgot that I was wearing them.

And of course, I can’t forget about my DIFF sunnies. These are the Bella Matte Black frame with the pink polarized lenses. You can use the code SAVILLAM for 25% off any pair. This style was just restocked, but you better hurry because they have been selling out fast!

Hope your Monday has been as productive as mine! 🙂

Earrings: The Willow Tree – Mention my name and get them for $10

Hi babes! I’m so happy that the weather is FINALLY starting to feel like Summer. Summer is my favorite time of year, and I’ve been dying to make the final transition in my closet to shorts, cute tops, and dresses. I think the time is finally here, and to celebrate, I’ve teamed up with Cuddy Studios to share three great Summer looks with you.

First is this adorable Petals Print Magdalena Dress. It’s currently marked down to $53, but with the code SHOP50, you can snag it for $23!! The code works site-wide, but this is definitely one of my favorite pieces. I love the bold print, and y’all already know that if it’s pink, it’s a winner in my book. Plus, how fun are these $10 ombré earrings? The pink really paired perfectly with the dress, but they also come in 4 other colors and The Willow Tree will ship them right to you!

The dress is super easy to wear, and I was thinking that it would also make a great swim cover-up. I’m all about wearing pieces multiple ways, and I think this dress was the perfect addition to my colorful closet. Don’t be afraid to wear a bold, fun print this Summer. I’ve made myself steer away from black, and now I can’t get enough color!

I’ve got two more looks with Cuddy Studios coming to the blog soon, but until then, you can shop all their new arrivals here.
