Styled: Fringe Sandals, Off the Shoulder Stripe Top & Oversize Bag
“They” say you shouldn't incorporate too many fashion trends into one outfit & I agree. Since my shoes are usually fairly trend-based (or just plain weird!), I try to keep my other “trendy” clothing items to a bare minimum. Usually one. In this case, I decided to pair my fabulous brown fringe sandals from Ssh-oes with an off-the-shoulder stripe top.
Turns out, it's a little Audrey Hepburn meets Arianna Grande. Only without the ponytail 😉

Instead of going for one of those ubiquitous frilly styles out there (which are cute, but I've seen enough of them to last me a lifetime!) I went with a tight off the shoulder top. This, I also found to be the perfect cold shoulder top that actually stays put.
As I mentioned in a previous post when I wore a loose tropical off the shoulder top, these shouder baring tops take a lot of getting used to. You know, hard to get around in, all the while attempting to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.
This cheap (under $15 in the US, $20 in Canada) yet cheerful little striped bodycon version of the popular top, does not! And it's also a great piece to accentuate the shoulders (obviously) while making a small chest area look, uhm, bigger than it really is! Way to work with those horizontal stripes when you're dealt them!
These comfortable heels are of the 2 Spring/Summer Ssh-oes from this quiet shoes brand that I recently reviewed. They're comfy, chunky heeled sandals that will pair well with almost everything. Including this woven faux-leather bag of almost the same shade!
Cutest thing about these sandals is their three layers of kiltie-like fringe, giving them a ton of depth and extra interest. A dowdy pair of brown heels these are definitely not! They also come in brown 🙂
