Memorial Day is widely accepted as the unofficial start of summer, and I’m welcoming it with open arms (and bare shoulders). It doesn’t feel very “unofficial” in Charleston where spring is approximately 5 min and we’ve been pushing 90 degrees since April, so for all intents and purposes I’m going to start saying it’s summer. Deal? I’m celebrating the best way I know how – on a rooftop wearing two of my favorite warm-weather staples, an off the shoulder top and denim cutoffs. Ring in summertime with me (and the best Memorial Day Weekend sales) below!
Is there anything better than a feminine off the shoulder neckline paired with the unfinished look of distressed denim? The answer is no – making it the ideal summer uniform. Since this combo provided the perfect blank canvas, I had lots of fun with accessories.
I love a choker with an OTS neckline, and this one from Vanessa Mooney makes me swoon(ey). Another fun touch was this little clutch featuring a tassel zipper, because tassels are my religion. I finished off the look with lace up sandals (currently on sale for $18!), classic black aviators, and delicate gold jewelzZzz. (Kayla Itsines-induced sports bra tanline not included.)
