The Most Sought After Spring Trend: One Shoulder Tops

Ah! It feels great to be back to blogging. I took an unexpected break when I had poor wifi connectivity and cell service on a recent work trip to Huntsville, and then came home super sick! This is one of the craziest times of the year as a teacher, with the upcoming state assessments and the end of the school year activities. All in all, I’m just glad to be back in action. This past weekend was Easter and I am so excited to share my latest look with you!

I love this look because it is the perfect blend of casual, with a twinge of formality to it. We are low key Easter people. We sat on our deck overlooking the lake and grilled steaks, with Utley our Golden Retriever. I love holidays that are relaxing and spent at home. It’s so much more enjoyable for me than rushing around going from place to place. I didn’t really need much more than a pair of jeans and cute top for my Easter celebration.

This year I was super excited because we got baby ducks! They are so stinking adorable. We got them because we have the lake in our backyard and a lot of room for them to roam. Our lake already has geese and swans, so it seemed like a nice fit. The brought a lot of joy to our Easter holiday and were super good for their first photoshoot.

My top is from J.Crew, it is linked at the bottom of the post. I love it because it has the amazing ruffled look that everyone is loving so much right now. It also has a cute cut out pattern, but it’s lined with a nude sheath. I paired my outfit with J.Crew denim, with a slight (natural) distressed look. I love the one shoulder tops, and they are totally a new staple for everyone’s closet. They are perfect for all occasions.

I know one shoulder tops are not new in the fashion world – I had one from Limited Too in 7th grade; I was equally obsessed and wore it to a school dance. I’ve just never had one quite as amazing as this one. This trend is definitely back in swing for Spring, and it completely makes sense. I could not believe how much this top dressed up my over-worn denim and my Dolce Vita sandals.

These sandals are super comfy by the way. I could have an entire post dedicated to my love for them. I have worn them to work every single day this week, just based upon the sheer comfort level. Another plus: comfortable shoes are rarely this stylish. I had no period of time where I had to break the shoes in or work to make them more comfortable.
