I typically don't invest too heavily into trends because I don't think it's wise to spend a lot on something that's potentially a passing phase. So, when there is a new style that appeals to me, I try to search for an affordable version that still looks well made. I've fully embraced the off-the-shoulder trend this season, so I couldn't resist this pretty lace top - the scalloped hem and tie-detail on the sleeves give it a sophisticated feminine vibe that works just as well with skinny jeans as it does with a sleek pencil skirt. I've also worn this with black cropped trousers & bright red flats for a more classic feel. Side note: these earrings I'm wearing are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I haven't taken them off since they arrived!
