TREND WATCH: Off-the-Shoulder Tops

The off-the-shoulder trend. If you’ve gone shopping the past few months or even scrolled through Instagram, you know this trend is taking over—and fast. Usually when trends like this blow up it completely turns me off—who wants what everyone else is wearing? For some reason, it’s just not the case with off-the-shoulder tops for me. Here’s why:
1. They're Oversized. When it comes to tops, I prefer them to be super oversized. I’ll typicaly grab for a large top when shopping. Why? It’s effortless looking. I have this theory that when you size up in tops it makes it look much more expensive (maybe it’s just me?) I also feel like an oversized top flatters your legs since they look longer and thinner in comparison (also maybe just me?).

2. They're Flattering. A lot of people forget that shoulders are something to show off too! Unlike super low-cut shirts (or the "lace-up" trend that needs to go!) it's a subtle & classy way to show a little skin.

3. They Put Necklaces on Display. I'm loving dainty necklaces and chokers. These shirts are the perfect way to show off minimalistic necklaces that typically get lost in an outfit.

Who else is loving these tops?!

These suede tie chokers are everywhere! At first, I was a little apprehensive towards the trend because I typically don't like dressing super boho, but I think paired with the right things (like this edgy Rebecca Minkoff backpack and these platform sneakers) it works! Not sure how to wear a choker? Try for an off the shoulder top or something with super-thin straps - it allows you to have a little something extra happening around your neck. I've also been living in these platforms. They make commute to work a breeze and give me an added 2 inches - a win win!

FITNESS TIP: My LEAF by Bella Beat

Hey guys! Back today with a fitness update.

As most of you know, I recently started a job in Boston. The upside? I get to walk to work! The downside? I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk (and I mean a lot). The LEAF by Bella Beat came into my life at the most perfect time and I can't express to you how much I love it.

I've always been weary about fitness trackers because when it comes to staying fit, I'm number-obsessed. I want to know exactly how many calories are coming in and out, and I have always tracked this in MyFitnessPal (also recommend if you don't have the app already.)

The LEAF completely changed that for me - which I think is a good thing. It's more of a "wellness" tracker than a fitness tracker and gives you a general idea of how much activity you've had throughout the day. It's been a nice break not thinking so much about calories in, calories out (I have enough to think these days!) - and honestly, mental health is just as important. Sometimes when we become too obsessed with what we are eating and how much we are working out, it can take a toll.

Here's an idea of what the LEAF tracks + sends straight to your iPhone...


My favorite things about the LEAF? If you don't feel like wearing it on your wrist, it can clip on to your bra or you can wear it as a necklace. Like I mentioned above, the LEAF is different than other trackers because it takes into account all aspects of your health. It tracks your sleep, your menstrual cycle, your daily steps, and even has guided mediations! I struggle a lot with anxiety at night and it has seriously helped me fall asleep.

Low-key obsessed with getting as many steps in as possible. It's like a game to me (I'm a 5 year old.)

What do you guys do to stay on track? Let me know down below.

I've been eyeing everything and anything For Love & Lemons for the past year or so - but I just haven't been able to justify the price. I love Forever21 because you know if you wait long enough (patience people, patience!) they will come out with a affordable version of certain trending options. When I saw this Forever21 dress, I instantly grabbed it because it reminded me so much of the For Love & Lemons Juliette Dress (which will run you $360 and up from most retailers!).

Once again, shout out to Forever21 for being my all time favorite. Especially for items like this (that aren't super wearable day-to-day) go with a affordable version.

Splurge on things like Chanel bags and Stuart Weitzman Highlander boots. Those deserve splurging.
