There is definitely no shortage of cold shoulder or off the shoulder tops in any store these days. They're kind of unavoidable, and I gotta say, I am loving all of them. I think that's why I ended up getting about half a dozen of them in the mail last week, this one included! I am always a fan of a good asymmetric cut and this top is no exception. Don't let the long sleeves fool you. It's super lightweight and perfect for days when the temps are warm outside but the AC is blaring indoors! I am wearing a small for size reference!

If any of you are going to the rewardStyle conference this weekend, please let me know! That was half the reason I went on a shopping rampage last week because I realized I really haven't bought much for spring, and well, being around 200 other bloggers and brands kind of makes me feel like I should be wearing something currently in stores! I figured my suitcase will be filled with dresses for cocktail parties and fun tops + skinnies for everything else. I do have a couple skirts I am throwing into the mix as well. It's only 3 days, but I'm most certain I am packing for two weeks. You have to have options, right?! Especially in case your fashion mood changes when you get there!!

Finishing off this outfit with bright pink pumps seemed like the logical thing to do. I always tend to reach for my hot pink pumps the most when I'm wearing blues and navies because they just pop so well against the darker contrasting colors! The neckline is already a statement in and of itself, so I nixed a necklace but definitely went for some glam with these earrings. They never disappoint!!

Short and sweet today! Our holiday weekend was pretty low key. Not only was it Easter yesterday, but it was also his mom's birthday and my sister's birthday! Sadly, my sister is too far for us to celebrate together, but it's nice to at least be able to share some love with his mom on her day! It's a short work week for me this week but a busy blogger weekend! Wish me luck as I try to get all my stuff together before I go!
