{off the shoulder stripes with turquoise tassels}

Off The Shoulder Top // Elyse by Nicole Turquoise Tassels c/o // Old Navy Jeans // Platinum Jack Rogers // Scout Clutch (with an Inslee monogram) c/o // BITE Lipstick in "Pastille"

We have a heat wave hitting DC right now... I walked home from work at 8:00 last night and it was still 91 degrees! Phew! Maybe blue jeans aren't the best for this heat but this top is perfect! It's technically a crop top so I got a size large so that it would be a bit longer. I love the loose fit and the material breathes really well - it was hot when I shot these photos and it didn't show anything! I knew I had to pair this shirt with these shoulder grazing tassels. They're the perfect accessory to draw even more attention to your shoulders. Y'all know I love turquoise and these are no exception (I can never have too much). Can we talk about my clutch too?! I got it at a SCOUT event last month and Inslee was there making custom monograms *insert heart eye emoji* I absolutely adore her work!

How is everyone's week going? I have had an absolute insane two weeks at work so I haven't been able to keep up with my usual blog posts. I apologize for that! It seems the second I get a handle on things and get into a groove something else pops up. Perhaps I'll never be able to fully balance work, the blog, friendships, and my relationship... I'm not sure. It's frustrating to me that I can't do everything I want to do - I'm in trouble when I have to plan a wedding or when I have kids or when I get promoted again (PS none of those things are happening soon haha)! But, that seems to be how life is recently. I'm attempting to focus on the positive things and not stress out about the bad things. There's too much good in my life to allow the negative to take over.

So on that note: I'm going to go buy more peonies (if you follow me on IG you know I've got them at work and at home @jennrog) and rock some turquoise tassel earrings ;) thanks for reading!!

Love Always,


  1. Such a cute top! I love all the blue and turquoise details!

  2. Love your top! It's super cut on you!
