Off-the-Shoulder & Culottes (& Link Up)!

June 8, 2017

Happy almost weekend, Everyone! I thought I would style my new denim wide-leg crops with an off-the-shoulder blouse for a date night look!

Madewell denim culottes, off the shoulder top, style over 40



The Jeans

Although probably not the most flattering jeans in my wardrobe arsenal, I am loving this trendy silhouette. These Madewell jeans have wide legs, raw hems, and a cropped length. I’ve worn them in a more casual look, and now for a date night look, and I expect to wear them soon with sneakers too!

The Top

This off-the-shoulder top from Chicwish was one of my purchases for our trip to Puerto Vallarta in February.  I love it with the flowing white maxi for a beachside dinner and I’m also loving it with these cool jeans for a date night in the city look.

    I would never say that those pants aren’t flattering, Dawn!! I think they are fabulous on you—really!!
    And don’t you just look oh, so sexy in that blouse!!

  • Reply Rena June 8, 2017 at 4:52 pm

    Black and denim is one of my favorite combos and yours looks fantastic. The raw edge crops and OTC add an edge to what would otherwise be a basic outfit. Well done and thanks for the link up.

    I think the silhouette is super flattering! It is one of my favorites. (Although my husband isn’t a big fan of high waisted wide leg jeans on me, but I still love them! What the heck do husbands know anyway?) Those shoes are amazing, too! And I love the black, white, and red. My recent post is the same color combination…because it rocks! Have a fabulous weekend, my friend!

    Oooh…I’m absolutely LOVING your “date night” look, dearest Dawn!! That über-chic off-the-shoulder top, those gorgeous ankle-strap sandals (are they brand new?) and the pops of red care of your bag and lippy…total perfection!! I’ll bet your hubby changed his mind about those cropped jeans when he saw this sweet combo, hmmm?! ;D
