I think it's safe to say this off the shoulder top from Mendocino is everything. The embroidered bell sleeves add a touch of whimsy but they're still elegant and I love how the crepe fabric drapes nicely on the body. It's the kind of blouse that can easily be dressed up or dressed down so consider this my part one - the dressed up, night-on-the-town look.
A nude shoe like these Givenchy sandals, make the legs appear longer. I don't like heels that are too high and these shoes are a perfect 3.5" which means I can walk around in them comfortably.
There's something romantic about this top and I felt like it needed a strong pop of colour to celebrate the femininity of the shirt. I chose the "girliest" bag I own, my lipstick pink YSL monogram cross body. I almost feel like I'm ready to go dancing but the truth is, I don't dance.
I'll do a follow up post on this blouse styled in a more casual manner. I'm thinking denim or cut off shorts. We'll see...
