Off the Shoulder

Off the shoulder tops, you in? I’m just as undecided but curious after giving this ASOS number a go. I love that it’s something a little different from the elasticated strip that is a feature of most clavicle-baring clothing at the moment. They always look like they would dig in… This one is soft, warm (dear god London, don’t we need warmth right now?!) and colourful. I.e my favourite things. 

Not so great is their ability to ride up. Better than falling down I suppose… But irritating none the less and resulting in lots of yanking at the frill. Then there’s the making you look broad and the rucking up of fabric when you wear a jacket. I just DON’T KNOW! Patience with this style I feel. 

Something I’m definitely decided on though is Paris. Yes, it took me a while to get into. (You think I’m crazy)? Spending 70% of my time in the metro and visiting when it’s cold and rainy doesn’t help. This time though, I had the help of Mr Blue sky, the best company in the form of 5 girls and the heady promise of weddings  at the front of mind. Probably why I’m dressed in white and pink. Stay tuned to see more of #WishWishHen

    The shot of the sunglasses is killer. These have a different vibe, do you have a new camera?

    Love this top! Those colours suit you so well. I really need to get some more off the shoulder things ready for the warmer weather (if it arrives, of course!). Gorgeous photos 🙂
