The off-shoulder top isn’t exactly a new trend. In fact, I remember being absolutely obsessed with them back in primary school (or maybe it was early high school) when Tammin Sursok used to wear them a lot. In fact, I distinctly recall reading an interview with her back in the days where she commented that ‘less isn’t more’ and that jeans and an off-shoulder top could be incredibly sexy. And I agreed. I wanted to be pretty and sexy just like Tammin.
As a side note, I know that she’s well known as being Jenna from Pretty Little Liars, but before all of that fame, she was a massive name in Australian television. She was a singer as well, did you know? I highly doubt I was the only girl who looked up to her.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand – off-shoulder tops.
Last weekend, a close friend of mine stayed over so we could take some photos for our blogs. I’m absolutely hopeless in front of a camera and have a lot more confidence behind the lens, but I thought that I had to start somewhere. Rather than having so many nerves having a stranger photograph me, I thought that there was nothing better than having one of my closest friends capture me the way that she saw me!
It took a lot of tries to get the right photos but I’m quite proud of how natural some of these turned out (especially since I was feeling anything but). This is the dress that I bought for my graduation though – casual and classy – and this cardigan is worn so often that I wonder if I’ll ever find another! The beanie never used to match my hair but, funnily enough, does now.
