Off Shoulder Trend, Andrea from Living On Cloud Nine

I am so excited to have my cutie-patootie blogging friend, Andrea, sharing a guest post about this season’s off shoulder trend. Her joy for life just oozes through every frame, which just adds to her gorgeousness.

Hi everyone!! I’m Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine. I am beyond thrilled to be guest hosting for sweet Shellie. I was so graciously welcomed to be one of her co-hostesses for our monthly My Refined Style fashion link up and Shellie’s style, sensibility and smiles simply make this world a brighter place.

Some of my favorite looks on Shellie revolve around the classic black and white!! The chic and tailored look just explodes with personality when she adds a touch of color. When I thought of Shellie and the outfit I wanted to style for this guest post, I knew my favorite color, red, was a must have with my black and white ensemble.

Off shoulder is certainly the trend of the season and the tops I love the most are the ones where the shoulders can be worn down or up as this fun, red gauze one can.

The midi skirt is another trend on point, especially for the over 40 set. This staple has actually been in my closet for 15 years and is a go to often when seeking a classic, refined look. It’s always an easy, pull out the black shoes, bright top or cardigan and good to go look.

To add to the fun, I was excited to style this new black and white striped floppy hat. Just love a wide brimmed hat in the summer and can see wearing this with a classic black or red one piece swimsuit and flowy cover-up.

I hope you week gets off to a great start. Getting to guest host for The FABulous Journey has started off mine with a smile.

    I love all of your looks, Andrea, but this has to be one of my favs. That skirt is so feminine and flirty by itself, but with that cold-shoulder top and those spicy sandals, you are one sassy lady.

    I love this look. So beautiful on you – and the color – perfection! I need to find a better strapless bra so I can join in the fun!

    Andrea, you look stunning! I love the black and white with a pop of red and your hat is just so fun!

    Great guest post. I love Andrea’s style and blog. She always rocks colorful nautical looks like this one. Both the top and the skirt are gorgeous. Have a great week Shellie and welcome by to linkup if you haven’t already. Thanks.
