3 Shoulder Show Looks for the Office

It’s July (my birthday month, woo!), and the year of the shoulder show game is STILL strong. What I’m loving the most about this trend is it’s flirting with all the different styles out there. Workout gear, casual, athleisure, formal, swimwear and even professional looks! I see so many adorable cold shoulder and off the shoulder tops that I would love to purchase but my reality is 5 out of 7 days a week my outfits adhere to my company’s dress code policy making some options not office friendly. I was really excited when I came across a few off the shoulder and cold shoulder tops that were more modest and professional!

I have three outfits to share today that are prefect for my 9to5- hopefully some #officestyleinspo for you!


First up is this white off the shoulder top. The poplin material makes this shirt structured and perfect for work-wear. How cute are the ties on the sleeves?

I kept my outfit simple by pairing with a classic navy trousers and nude slides. Added some jeweled stack bracelets and matching earrings to add a little something fun.

Next up is a cold shoulder button up! That’s right, you read right: cold shoulder + button up! This is like the most grown-up cold shoulder shirt I’ve seen! I was really excited to add this top to my closet.


I put it together with blush skinnies, nude strappy heels and popped in my favorite black diamond earring studs to complete this look! Ignore the wrinkles, that’s what happens when outfit pictures are taken after a full day of work. I have some white and black wide leg pants this top would look great with! I can’t wait to wear it with some distressed jeans for a night out!

Top | Pants | Heels (similiar) | Earrings | Ring

My last look to share includes this super cute ruffled cold shoulder blouse. It’s pretty sheer so I threw a cami underneath to make it work-appropriate. I think if I wear it on the weekend I’d skip the cami & just go for it.


I love the soft ruffle across the top and the airy sleeves! I combined these wide linen pants I purchased at Target many years ago with block heeled cognac sandals & a skinny navy belt. Added a pair of faux diamond earrings and this look is way stylish for the office!

A few other office-friendly tops I’m loving include this ruffle mock turtleneck neck cold shoulder blouse- I love it in yellow but the navy is pretty too! This white off the shoulder button down would pair so well with a pencil skirt. A lace short sleeve cold shoulder blouse combined with white skinnies or a full skirt would be so cute! This key-hole front cold shoulder top would be great with jeans for casual Friday’s!

Closet Finds FTW

I’m not a hoarder of much of anything besides crafting and wardrobe pieces. I’m not kidding when I say I still have the skirt I wore to my high school graduation! I don’t wear it too often because I’m not really a skirt girl. It’s a basic cream colored modest mini skirt from Express that is such a wardrobe staple that I can’t part with it.  Then there are other items that aren’t such a basic piece that I have kept. If I’m being really honest with you- unless a piece gets ruined, doesn’t fit or just waaay out of […]

5 Casual Summer Sandals This Season

I’m a strong believer that a shoe can make or break an outfit. The shoe doesn’t even need to be a wow factor for this to happen- it just has to be the right shoe. For as much as I believe this for years I only wore some version of a flip flop in the summer in all the colors. I eventually graduated from a rainbow of plastic to a rainbow of leather but it wasn’t until a few years ago I started to embrace the various forms of the summer sandal. And now, I can’t stop! Of course I […]

Killer Lunch Quickie

Hi guys! Gosh, it’s been over a week since I last posted. Yikes! And a week it has been. I’m much looking forward to a glass of wine (or three) this evening! Little Miss started in the infant room at her school this week and I’m back to working full time. I was that hot mess Mom with a stream of tears down my face on our first drop off. This week has been an adjustment; emotionally & physically. I’m still trying to juggle to fit everything that I want into my day/week. (Like blogging, laundry!) Since my little lady […]

My #NSALE Under $50 Picks

Nordstrom Half Yearly  Sale started yesterday and I mean really who doesn’t love a good sale? Especially if you’re like me who aims to purchase an entire outfit for under $100 or less! Fashion is ever changing which means sometimes if you just hold off long enough a favorite item will be marked down. Combine that with free shipping and it’s like Christmas morning, am I right? I really love this one shoulder ruffle top– I think it would be great for a little happy hour fun. It comes in so many cute colors but I’d probably stick to black. This […]

3 Reasons Why I Date My Husband

My go to marriage advice to give for bridal shower/wedding games  is “continue to date one another”. Sure there are other marriage advice that I think are important but for me this one is crucial- and even more so now that we have kids. Work, career, laundry, cooking, cleaning house, paying bills, running errands- there’s a lot that happens to be a functioning adult. Then you have kids which adds another level to all the noise that is life. This can leave us feeling exhausted! It’s good  to break away from the every day routine with Adam for a little bit. As […]

My Poshmark Closet is Live!

I’ve been wanting to try out selling my gently used clothes on Poshmark for awhile. Last weekend at a party I got to chatting with a girl who sells regularly on Poshmark about her experience. After we talked, I couldn’t wait to go through my closet for some listings! I do not hoard much of anything in life besides wardrobe and crafting supplies. For a few years I’ve been saying I’m going to majorly purge my closet- and this might just be the start of it! I think it will be a great way to resale some of the items […]

Small Victories

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We had gorgeous weather and I spent celebrating with friends and family all weekend long- it flew by! I’m pretty excited about these striped pants. They are from last year but guys, they fit again! Yeah for small victories. In fact, I wore these last Mother’s Day and just a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant with little miss. I still have some more weight and inches to lose but it feels great to wear something in my regular size! Those tough workouts  from the Spring into Summer Shape […]
