For the record ladies and gents, you are going to be seeing a lot of posts featuring off the shoulder tops because I am just that in love with the trend (sorry not sorry). Of course when I saw this striped off the shoulder top at J Crew, I had to get it! There is a navy blue option but I chose to pick the mustard yellow color. I love the bracelet sleeves! Take it from me, this is a great weekend top to enjoy to transition from winter to spring (especially with the warm weather we have been having on the east coast lately).

It’s a unique color that is not in my wardrobe. I chose to pair the top with my favorite Paige jeans and my favorite suede boots (mine are by Steve Madden). Pairing a choker with an off the shoulder top will always make you look chic. This is a look that is super easy to put together! I hope you enjoy it. What are some of your favorite transitional pieces? Feel free to leave me a comment below!

I also added some additional off the shoulder tops that are on my wishlist.
