MINIMAL CHIC IN A NOT SO BASIC H&M OFF-THE-SHOULDER SHIRT…

off-the-shoulder blouseI fell in love with this H&M cotton off-the-shoulder shirt the minute I saw it on their website. Aside it being off-the-shoulder which of course is still making waves in the fashion world, I was drawn to the checkered print and the v-neck. It is fun, appealing to the eyes and modestly sexy. I love how off-the-shoulder shirt and blouses are so effortlessly chic and trendy. It doesn’t matter what range and style you opt for, you’ll still turn heads. Clavicle exposure is the new sexy if you ask me. With that said, if you haven’t got at least one off-the-shoulder piece in your closet, what you waiting for? Ha! It is rather unfortunate that Spring has decided not to show its face this year, but all the same, this shirt is perfect for all seasons.

My days of not wearing jeans or fitted pants are over. The relationship with my thighs has come a long way, but I have finally come to good terms with them. The inspirations I get from fellow curvy influencers on Instagram is amazing and very empowering. That brings me to this Primark jeans/jeggings that I paired with this shirt. The fit is wonderful which is down to how stretchy the pant is. Being a curvy woman, stretch is everything when buying clothes. I must say Primark has really stepped up their game.

Below are a few OTS pieces I’m eyeing (not sponsored);

 Polkadot wrap blouse | Floral top | Denim smock top | Tailored double-breasted blouse | Red bardot bodysuit

    I just love jeggings right now, I was afraid to try them until last year and I prefer them even over skinny denim now. Of course, they have to have a little stretch! I love this pair on you and that top is so pretty, especially paired with those blue heels!
