Shouldering on: cold-shoulder blouse, boyfriend shorts, ankle-strap sandals and yellow mini-bag

I’m giving you a bit of the “cold shoulder” today, dear readers…I hope you don’t mind!!  😉

Remember when I mentioned in my “Toeing the Line” post that I found the off-shoulder trend cute, but kind of constricting to wear??  Well, that’s certainly not an issue with this little boho-inspired number…it’s as easy and comfortable as a favourite worn-in t-shirt!!

I’ve balanced the volume of my breezy new blouse (a find from Forever 21!) with denim boyfriend shorts and my barest ankle-strap sandals; the metallic detail of these shoes is a perfect compliment to the black-and-white pattern of the top, don’t you think?!

And the finishing touch simply had to be my cheery yellow mini-bag…a portable pop of sunshine I can carry with me wherever I go!!

P.S. The weekend is (almost!) here, and I’m doubly excited!!  First, it’s party time at Fashion Should Be Fun for Dawn’s Fun Fashion Friday linkup!!  And then on Monday?!  I’ll finally be presenting you with a little photo tour of our dreamy outdoor space…along with my regular outfit inspo, of course!!  See you then!!

      Isn't Forever 21 a sartorial goldmine for cute boho-inspired looks, dearest Veronika?? And that shiny yellow bag was a Winners "fab find" from a few weeks back!! 🙂 Let's keep our fingers crossed that Vancouver's weekend forecast lives up to its glowing promise; I'm sure you'll agree that we are waaay overdue for some REAL summer weather!! XOXO
