The BEST Off-the-Shoulder Top For Spring!

Photography by Deeana Kourtney Photography

     This outfit post is putting me in such a spring mood! Spring is my absolute favorite season- and I love just about everything associated with it, but especially spring fashion! The off-the-shoulder trend managed to last through the winter by sticking around on sweaters and dresses. I had my doubts about this at first, but I ended up getting down with it eventually (I styled an off-the-shoulder sweater in this post!). 

     But off-the-shoulder for spring... that is something that I can get much more on board with! As soon as I saw this beautiful pink ruffled OTS top, I knew it had to be mine! It's just so feminine and darling, and it's also very relaxed around the stomach area which makes it even more comfortable to wear. And the best part of all?! It's under $20!! What a steal for such a pretty top

     I probably say this about a lot of my photoshoots with Deeana, but I really loved these photos! We shot them in the downtown of Rock Hill, a charming small city in South Carolina, about 40 minutes south of Charlotte. Charlotte is an amazing city to blog in, and there are so many great spots to shoot in! But it is still fun to get out of the city sometimes, and discover all that the metro area has to offer as well, with great cities and towns in both North and South Carolina. Last month, Deeana and I also spent time shooting north of Charlotte in the cute town of Davidson. 

      I am so, so SO excited for Monday's blog post! It's a long one, but I'll be sharing the big news that I've been teasing for a few weeks! In other news, I leave tomorrow for two weeks of travels! I'll be going on an international trip with my mom, but first I have a trip related to my big news. And before all of that- one night at home in Maine. I can't wait to see a couple of my high school friends tomorrow night before all of the traveling fun kicks off! Be sure you're following me on social media @miss_alk to keep up with my upcoming adventures.
