Last summer I was all about the off-the-shoulder top. I must have collected about 4 or 5 of them, and they were all I wanted to wear. I’d get ready for the day, shoulders bared, and be on my way.

But you know what you can’t do in an off-the-shoulder top? Literally anything.

All throughout the day, I would be fidgeting, making sure the off-the-shoulder sleeves weren’t making their way up my arm back to my shoulders, gently tugging them back down where they belonged. Going out to dinner in your new top? Nope, they’ll slide up while you eat. Wearing them grocery shopping? Maybe if you’re not picking up anything. Want to wear a light jacket with it? Don’t even think about it.

Though they still find their way out of my closet from time to time, I have happily accepted the off-the-shoulder’s low maintenance cousin into my life, the one-shoulder top. Gone are the days of not being able to raise my arms lest my shirt fly off my shoulders!

I got this one during a recent Nordstrom’s Rack haul. I was just going to get these Soludos espadrilles to replace the ones that Daphne ate (She chased it with a tub of coconut oil) but when you’re only $40 from free shipping, you say what the hell and toss a few things into your cart. I know we’ve all been there.

Anyway, I am looking forward to a quiet, relaxing weekend! Boyf will be away recording an album in Austin, and I am going to cook and embroider and maybe get a workout or two in. What do you have planned?
