Every once in a while, Chauncey and I get a date night.  A couple of weekends ago, our parents were in town, so we headed out to dinner, then drinks with friends at West Main Crafting Co. in downtown Lexington. Our friends recently opened West Main, and we really enjoy the atmosphere, drinks, and food there! This outfit was perfect for a night out on the town.

ON TREND: Cold Shoulder Top

I’ve become slightly obsessed with cold shoulder tops lately.  This one had the cutest ruffle detail that makes it flirty. It’s on sale under $25, and also comes in a red tropical pattern, black, and white. My white jeans go great with it. Not only are white jeans my go-to right now, but an all-white look is just so summery!

When picking accessories, I always try to select an accent color from my outfit to “pick up” and carry through.  Here, I added blue earrings and blue wedges.  These wedges are so amazingly comfortable!  They’re actually from Bearpaw, and you can save 15% off your order (US ONLY) when you use code BA17IU4JST.

I finished the look with a neutral bag ($25!) and gold jewelry. If you are looking for a new summer bag, look for one in a natural (tan) color and in a round shape.

How do you feel about the cold shoulder trend/

    I am not a cold shoulder person and I think I figured out why! I need to wear a bra! lol. This outfit looks great on you!

      Haha. Here, I wore a strapless one. I’ve definitely seen some cold shoulder tops with straps wide enough to wear a bra with–maybe try one of those if you seen one out?

    Oooo I love that you paired this with white jeans! Summer perfection!
