Over and Over Again: Revive Your Favorite Off the Shoulder Top for Winter

Hey Mer-babes! Off the shoulder tops were huge this summer and has us all feeling super sassy.  Just because the temperatures are beginning to drop doesn't mean our sass levels have to drop with it.  Ok, side note, how excited are we that it SNOWED this morning? I'm excited, a month left until my birthday (#19onthe19th) and I am hoping for a white birthday.  I am loving all the layering I have been doing this season, I am not stopping now.  Your off the shoulder top can easily be layered over a blouse to create the perfect Friends-giving look.  

This off the shoulder top with the large ruffle detailing (shop similar here and here) is so wavy.  I paired it with a fitted oxford (shop here) making this the perfect holiday combination, right behind mashed potatoes and gravy.   I love the juxtaposition of the crisp white collar paired with the more bohemian silhouette on the off the shoulder blouse.  I styled this pairing with wide-leg pants (shop Kenzo x H&M here and similar here), these are the perfect holiday pants aka very pie friendly.  For a more laid-back vibe you could swap out the wide-leg pants for a skinny jean or the most pie friendly pants on the market, leggings.  When mixing patterns I tend to go towards one large and one small print as seen in this look.  The large florals on top pair nicely with a smaller geometric print on these wide-leg pants.   This top and pant came from the same KENZO X H&M collection making it super simple to rule out fears of clashing colors, like two reds that don't match, but I highly encourage you to go beyond one collection and mix pieces from all over.

Accessorizing such a bold look can seem a bit intimidating but it is so much fun.  This faux leather baseball cap (shop here) brought out the black bases throughout the look creating a seamless quality from head to toe.  Picking a bag was a breeze for this look, red and a touch of yellow means the pizza purse is coming out! Shop the pizza purse for under $50.  Not just any shoe can stand up to a wide-leg pant, I chose these block heeled booties (shop here).  Block heeled booties are huge this season and for good reason, I just had to hold myself back so hard from making any embarrassing rhyme jokes.
