The Perfect Cold Shoulder Blouse + WW Link Up

Cold Shoulder blouse

By now, I'm sure you're all well aware that I have an obsession with cold shoulder tops.  I can't stop adding them to my wardrobe, and I'm so happy that they haven't (yet) gone out of style.  I just hope you don't get tired of seeing me wear them!  I recently added this Alice & Trixie cold shoulder blouse to my closet, and it is hands down my favorite for the shoulder baring style.  Not only did I fall in love with the cut, but the ruffle detailing adds a fun, yet feminine feel.  Plus, is this color not the prettiest shade of green?  It's a perfect color to take you into the fall, but if green is not your style, it is available in black too.  I paired it with my favorite high rise black jeans, and finished my look with my Chloé Marcie bag and lace up sandals for a perfect date night look.

Although this top makes a great addition to your fall wardrobe, you can wear it now by pairing it with white jeans and a nude sandal.  Tell me, are you tired of the cold shoulder trend yet? 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  I'm headed up to the lake to soak up some sun and beach time.  I just hope the weather cooperates.  Summer is going by way too fast, and I need to enjoy the rest of it while I can!

We're so excited to have April of The Blue Hydrangeas co-hosting this week!  I just love her classic and feminine style.  She is a mom to four kids, and has a great eye for photography.  

The feature blogger is Marta of Sweaters, Stripes and Sweets.  I'm loving how she styled these two dresses for a day to night wedding guest look.  Make sure to stop by her blog for more day to night outfit inspiration, and to say hello!

  3. That's a really pretty cold shoulder top. I love the ruffles and the color. I still haven't gotten a cold shoulder top; I'm pretty sure by the time I get around to getting one it will be completely out of style...

    Thanks for the link up! Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. great combo for a perfect outfit!

  5. That top is sooo hot and lovely sleeves.

  6. That is an adorable top! I tried on a similar one in Ann Taylor the other day and loved it. <3 I actually think that cold shoulders as a trend could end next year, even though the style will probably live on for some time. (Which, of course, doesn't mean anyone should stop wearing it or enjoying it. Ruffles make everything better.)


  7. So obsessed with this whole look! The colors have me ready for fall!

  8. Obsessed with cold shoulders as well. They are cute, trendy and office appropriate. Love this addition and that tie in in the back ❤️❤️❤️

  9. I really prefer cold shoulder tops over OTS tops... way more comfortable. I love the ruffle detail on the shoulders and also that is such a pretty color of green for the fall.


  10. Rachael, what a gorgeous top! I love all the ruffles and the bow tie back. This color is magnificent on you, too. And I love it paired with the black skinnies and strappy sandals. Super sassy! You definitely rock the cold shoulder tops, so keep wearing them, my friend! I haven't found one yet that is flattering on me....boooo. Oh well, we must wear what we love and what is flattering on us!

  17. I'm still not sick of cold shoulder by any means! Your top looks so soft, I can't imagine how soft it must be. I agree you can totally wear this top now with white jeans and nude heels for a summer look. Hope you had an amazing weekend at the lake!!
