I’m in an endless summer mindset lately, but I can’t say the constantly-changing Chicago weather is in the same boat. One day it’s 90 degree and muggy, the next it’s a chilly 70 degrees. We all know I am absolutely in love with fall, but only after I’ve had a sufficient summer! Considering it didn’t actually feel like summer in Chicago until mid-July, I’m not ready for the breezy temperatures that we’ve had lately. (Four weeks of summer is not nearly enough!)
This off-the-shoulder, ruffled gingham pom-pom top just screams summer, and I absolutely love it. It’s preppy, feminine, and belongs at a picnic. And I obviously mean that in the best way possible. I actually got the top after the fourth of July or else it would have been perfect for the festive holiday weekend. I don’t know what it is lately, but I can’t stop wearing a mix of red and navy blue. (Evidenced here, here, and here.)
Beyond clothing, I’ll be trying to soak up every last bit of summer over the next few weeks… Dining alfresco, days by the pool, and every glass of rosé I can get my hands on. 😉 Maybe even a picnic that I can wear this top to!
Believe it or not, this is the first off-the-shoulder top I’ve purchased this season. Obviously, they’ve been all the rage, but I just felt pretty indifferent about them. (It was the ruffle, red gingham, and the poms that sold me with this top!) Strapless styles have always been the most unflattering on me, but I like how this top feels kind of like a strapless, but conceals the arm/shoulder area. Much more flattering!
FYI: I think this top runs pretty small. I’m wearing a medium!
