All summer long I have been on the hunt for the perfect off-the-shoulder top for me. Up until just last week, I had no luck! I would try on a few that I was almost sure I’d love and ended up not liking them at all. While it looks like these tops are all made the same, I can assure you that they’re not. Every top I’d try on would slip right up to where a regular top should fit on the shoulders, and I’d leave feeling super down about it.
I love being petite, but sometimes it doesn’t have its perks. I have read a ton of fashion bloggers’ posts about off-the-shoulder tops and each time I ask for tips on how to make one work, I always get the answer “just choose the next size down”. Well being petite, I can’t choose the next size down, because I’m already wearing the smallest size. The struggle can be real for us petite ladies!
But I have some goods! I finally found the perfect off-the-shoulder top for me and I’m completely in love with it. I love the black and white vertical striped detail on this top; it’s absolutely darling. I know I shared many times here that I’m a lover of black, white, grays, and neutrals. That’s basically all you’ll find in my wardrobe! I have no shame.
What I loved about this top when I tried it on was that I could still move my arms and function how I normally would without the top sliding up to my shoulders. Before owning an off-the-shoulder top, I always thought it’d be impossible to do everyday things in it, because I’d be too busy pulling at the shoulders. Well, I was wrong! It’s always amazing when you figure something out that you didn’t think was possible.
While I love fashionable, I love functional more. It’s great to look stunning, but you’ll always look better when you’re being intentional about what you’re wearing.
This top makes me feel super confident about myself, my body, and my style. When you find a piece like that, you don’t ever want to let it go! You ladies know what I’m talking about.
You can bet I’ll be wearing this dainty little top as much as I can before the summertime is over, and then I’ll be eagerly waiting to break it out next spring!
If you’ve been wanting to try out a new trend or style, but haven’t been able to find the right fit for you, don’t give up! If you keep on looking, I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for. And who knows, you may end up falling in love with a look that you never thought you would. Never limit yourself!
