Off-The-Shoulder

August 29, 2016

I don't normally follow trends. I like to know what's going on in the fashion world but I only wear trends I genuinely like. I prefer to keep it classic and buy things that will last more than one season. When I buy something it's because I've "fallen in love" with that piece and I don't want to get rid of it after a few months.

One trend that I love is the off-the-shoulder top. At first I was hesitant because it doesn't look like the comfiest top but I find that bare shoulders framed by a ruffle are so beautiful! So I finally got myself this floral top and I'm really happy with it. It is true that I have to keep my arms down to keep it in place but I don't regret my choice. I just don't wear it when I go grocery shopping ;)

Below you have some of my favorite off-the-shoulder tops, I've chosen some long-sleeved options so you can transition this trend into the last days of summer. I recommend you check out the first one (white with embroidered flowers) from Free People, it used to be $98 now it's just $36!

This month the blog has been devoted to fashion. In September we are going to switch to traveling mode because I'll be sharing pics from the holidays. You may have seen a preview on my Instagram stories. My fiance and I went on a cruise that started in Venice, then stopped at the charming Croatian town of Split and continued around the Greek islands. So stay tuned!
Don't forget you can follow Memories of the Pacific on social media. I always check out the accounts and blogs of those who follow :)

  1. 100% agree about trends. Sometimes they suit my body type but sometimes they don't! I don't really think I would like over the shoulder just because I like wearing straps and sleeves haah but it looks amazing on you! :)
