 I clearly have a thing for off the shoulder tops and dresses, but who doesn’t?! They are ultra feminine, and just so perfect for summer.  I’m celebrating the last weeks of summer by wearing these off shoulder tops and dresses non-stop, and I cannot help but find so many good choices out there. I’m wearing a paisley off the shoulder dress from Boohoo actually which I’m wearing as a top instead (it’s super versatile, y’all!) and guess what? It has a price tag of only $26! I love the color and the paisley print of it, and the fact that it can be worn as a dress and/or top.

PS: Thank you for your kind words on my last blog post! I took your encouragement to heart and stalked Pinterest for inspiration! You guys are seriously the best!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a lovely Wednesday!

Much love.

    You do seem to have a fondness for off the shoulder tops but I don’t blame you. They look fabulous on you! I’m glad to hear you are kicking the bloggers block a little bit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sending you a hug, Vanessa!

    Well, this makes sense.. because I just read that all the ‘cool and chic’ girls were wearing off-the-shoulder tops haha! I adore the print on this one, you look beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

    ugh the last week of summer so sad! But so ready for fall! V you are killing me you look so amazing, I mean just like always! Love the off the shoulder!
    Thanks for the super sweet words on Monday, really meant the world!

    The paisley prints are ever elegant, so are off shoulder tops which am also loving of late.
    Am more obsessed with your shorts though, they are too cute and you look so pretty in the whole combo. I also like the touch of class with the scarf.

    Enjoy the rest of your week Vanessa. Kisses from Nairobi.

    I’m so happy that you were able to get out of the “bloggers block” because like many of your readers, I NEED MY DAILY VANESSA DOSE! You are so fantastic, and it really is hard to be believe that something like you could have lack of inspiration. You could wear anything and still be the most fabulous girl ever, seriously. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me, on a daily basis! And before I forget: LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress, worn as a top! Boohoo rocks!

  16. August 26, 2015 / 9:42 AM

    Oh Lovely outfit dear! Interestingly our outfit posts have few things in common today! I just love the pairing of this blouse with shorts! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. August 26, 2015 / 12:48 PM

    I love the addition of the scarf, it adds the perfect touch. Also I’ve loved seeing bloggers experiment with versatile ways of wearing dresses, like how you tucked it into shorts. I saw another blogger who wore a mid-length dress over jeans & it was such a cool mix. This is why I love blogging, so much inspiration!


  22. August 26, 2015 / 12:49 PM

    Vanessa, you look amazing (as usual ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love the color pairing; those shorts are fab and that top is ultra feminine and boho-chic, love it!

    I hope you’re having an awesome day, my beautiful friend! Sending much love your way ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s amazing that you can wear this beautiful top/dress in two ways! Cause it is very beautiful – I love paisley and the colors are very nice! I also loved your neckerchief and the shorts and shoes! Yes, end days of summer, I love fall, in fact, but summer also has good points, no doubt! I think you look exquisite and very classy – you always show beautiful outfits that are elegant and ladylike, and you always look perfect and stunning! Hab’dich sehr lieb, auch, liebe V.! Many hugs!

  26. August 26, 2015 / 3:33 PM

    You look lovely in this outfit combination Vanessa, mixed so nice flowy, girly at the top and down to earth at the bottom makes me want to wear the same outfit))
    And special note on the scarf – it’s perfect!
