In this weekend What I Wore, my casual weekend look; featuring an easy to wear off-the-shoulder blouse that can be dressed up or down, layered accessories, and what the heck is tailorless denim? We’ll take a look at what finally hit the Anthro Sale Rack, then link into Not Dressed as Lamb; for a truly inspiring Swimwear Special, by Award Winning Blogger Catherine Summers.
What I Wore
If you’ve been following along this past summer, you know I’ve had a love/hate relationship with off-the-shoulder tops. Not that I don’t love them on everyone else – I do. My issue is; most off-the-shoulder top’s don’t stay put on me. I’ve been a huge fan of cold shoulder tops, ones that show some shoulder – with the ability to wear a bra under the strap, and hold the top in place.
Then I came across this pretty – over at the Nordstrom Rack.
In love with the color and fit; meet the Bailey 44 Tusk Top in Terracotta, exact HERE
I couldn’t wait to style this number up with denim.
Last Friday’s plans were casual, so flat sandals were a must;
so I opted for my Seven Tailorless Released Hem jeans, on the bottom half.
So what’s up with this Tailorless Denim idea?
Via the 7 for all Mankind Website: “Tailorless” keeps the integrity of the silhouette intact. Hemming a new flare can wipe out its intended shape and drama. Our shorter inseam collection is specifically designed to require little to no alternations.
The shorter inseam on this style, allows me to wear a released hem jean with flip flops or ballet flats. Where have you been all season dear?
Now, layer it on!
Wanting the top to speak for itself, I opted for layers of gold jewelry.
Layered Necklaces, Gorjana | Gold Cuff, House of Harlow | Gold Earrings, Gorjana.
Gold rings, Alexis Bittar | Tote Bag, Isabella Fiore
You can read more on how I layer my jewelry, in this previous AskSuzanne post, Layer it On.
Northern California summer evenings can get chilly,
which is why I am a huge fan of duster sweaters – to cozy up in.

I love the pop of rose gold (I’m obsessed with anything rose gold these days!) in this sweater.
The colorful stripes in this crochet sweater, pair up beautifully with everything from denim, to all white looks!

The #iwillwearwhatilike Swimwear Special
For a while now, I have participated in a link-up over at Not Dressed as Lamb, created by the Award-Winning over 40 Style Blogger, Catherine Summers. Catherine, who opposes the term “age appropriate”, encourages women to be fabulous at any age. In her Monday post – the #iwillwearwhatilike link up – she talked about how women of any age can wear whatever they want when it comes to beachwear and swimwear. Today, she shared a few of her favorites on the blog. I encourage you to pop on over and take a look at her inspiring post; 17 Women of All Shapes, Sizes and Ages Wearing Bikinis, Swimsuits and Cover Ups – The #iwillwearwhatilike Swimwear Special, HERE.
I was thrilled and honored, to see my Island Style, included amongst these inspiring 40+ women!
