Top: J.Crew // Jeans: J.Crew // Shoes: Dolce Vita // Backpack: Kate Spade // Necklace: Gorjana // Sunnies: Karen Walker

About a month ago I took a whirlwind trip to New York City (shared more about my trip here) with two coworkers. Before heading home, we took advantage of our noon flight and spent the morning exploring midtown. It was a little more chilly in New York than Dallas, so I ended up wearing more transitional pieces such as this black off-the-shoulder top. I picked up this top from J.Crew on an impulse shopping spree the day before we left Dallas. This black off-the-shoulder top fits true to size (wearing a small), and I like to wear it with the sleeves pushed up to 3/4 length. I paired this top with my favorite light wash jeans from J.Crew and the most comfortable neutral mules from Dolce Vita. I seriously walked all around midtown in these mules. Since we were walking around so much, I swapped my rather heavy shoulder purse for this Kate Spade backpack. I carried this backpack during my recent trip to London as well and it was the perfect size. I have linked this outfit as well as a few of my favorite off-the-shoulder tops below! xoxo
