I don’t normally gravitate towards very fitted tops but when you find one that’s flattering and doesn’t feel stuffed, you buy it. And that’s this Free People off-the-shoulder top. 

Full sizing disclosure: I sized up to the medium/large thinking I’d want the extra give but it ended up being too big through the arms and shoulders, so I would definitely stick with your normal size.

This top has a really comfy, stretchy, almost jersey-like feel that makes it ultra-flattering, in my opinion. It tucks seamlessly into my high-rise jeans and gives you that effortless silhouette that’s so desirable. This one has a slight sparkle that runs through it but it comes in so many colors!

I personally find this fitted style on top pairs best with high-waisted bottoms, so you really get a slight nip at the waist from the high-rise silhouette and it helps break up the top at a flattering spot at your torso. You could also tuck into an a-line skirt or any bottoms that are baggier. Think mom jeans or maybe a pair of wide leg capris this spring and summer. 

I slipped into these Marc Fisher mules that have the perfect low heel height to finish the look with my jeans. They are so comfy at just over 2 inches high and the taupe tone will pair with everything in your closet. This Free People clutch has been the perfect finishing piece for the season and I love how it also comes with a crossbody strap. 

As always, thank you for reading and enjoy your spring!

I'm a big fan of layers and clothes that have built in layers are an automatic win in my book. This Goodnight Macaroon sweater is really kind of perfect and makes layering a breeze. With a knit sweater attached to a plaid flannel, you get the layered look without the hassles of extra bulk and fidgeting that comes along with it. I love that you get a peek of plaid just at the bottom and sides (and not the back), versus having a collar attached, which always makes me feel a little too preppy for my taste. It's the perfect mix of classic and chic with just a touch of fall. 

I paired it with plenty of gold, the most perfect edgy/sweet necklace, and my favorite jeans in the history of ever. Seriously, Jbrand super skinnies are the best jeans ever and I don't know what I'd do without them. If you've never tried Jbrand jeans, you're in luck, because they're on Hautelook today at over 60% off!

This probably won't come as a surprise, but my favorite way to accessorize is with lots of gold. Shocker. One might say you can go gold overboard, but I am clearly not one of those people. Todays post combines my favorite hues. I am always drawn to a soft color palette-- white, cream, nude and soft pink. So much so that half of my closet is dedicated to it and sometimes I have to tell myself not to buy yet another cream blouse. But, of course, I can never help myself. Hence, half my closet is dedicated to it. But, with good reason. There's such a softness and femininity that goes along with such soft colors. Romantic, pretty, feminine. That is the epitome of how I like to dress. And what else do I love about these gorgeous hues? They look even more gorgeous with gold! 

This ruffle top was one of those, "Do I need another cream blouse?" purchases. When it's a ruffled peplum blouse the answer is always a big YES to me! (Bonus: This beauty is on sale for $20!!) I paired this sweet and delicate top with my soft-pink J Brand super skinnies in the color romantic, how fitting! J Brand jeans are my all time favorite and I almost always buy them when they're on Hautelook, which is quite a bit, so I highly recommend taking a peek every so often if you're a J Brand lover like me. 

A delicate gold necklace, a golden arm party, and my favorite gold gladiator sandals finish off the look and my ASOS snakeskin cross body gives just a touch of grit and edge to this soft and sweet, neutral and gold look.
