Off the Shoulder Must Have: Ageless Style Linkup

Hi Everyone,

Today is the first Tuesday of the month so welcome to  the June Ageless Style theme: Off the Shoulder – a trend that can not be missed for summer 2017!

Who would have thought that off the shoulder would be a must have? Going through old family photos from the 1970’s – I was convinced this was when off the shoulder was first worn. My Mother swears she never wore off the shoulder then – apparently it was nothing my Dad liked. Made me laugh as my hubby now hates anything off the shoulder on me too. Yet here we are – off the shoulder is in full swing and no wardrobe is complete without a piece! So I am sorry dear men but you are going to have to persevere this time round as we lovingly subject ourselves to fashion!

Back to the Linkup – it’s about 10 ladies, showcasing their version of this theme in their ageless style. It’s always exciting to see what each of them come up with. We never share photos beforehand so it’s a complete surprise to us all – I love the fact that we all come up with something so different and end up inspiring each other in new fashion directions.

The linkup is at the end of this post so make sure you stay tuned 😉

Off the Shoulder Must Have: Ageless Style Linkup

Off the shoulder is a definite must have this season – dare to wear it as it really does suit any shape and size!

Visiting NZ right now I of course have to showcase another Antipodean  – as in Australian design label  Indikah. A totally new label to me but certainly has a few fun designs.

Can you believe it’s actually Winter here in NZ right now. Standing on a wharf in Napier. I guess in reality we were simply lucky it was a sunny morning.

Do you think there is a chance of a suntan even though it’s Winter? In any case if there is one trend not to be missed this Summer it is off the shoulder!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Goodness, this dress is Gorgeous, Yvonne! I love everything about it and most of all how wonderfully you wear it. It looks so carefree and perfect with your Adidas. So funny about the guys not liking off the shoulder. 🙂

  2. You are hilarious! Love your story about the men in your family not liking the off the shoulder. Well, they better hold on, cause it’s not going anywhere anytime soon! Ok, Fav Fav Fav look! Loving how you styled it, as you know, I’m a sucker for sneakers! Sneakers with anything! The print in this dress is just spectacular & you are looking incredibly adorable! Great look, great post!

  3. I am always amazed by how mild the Winter season is in NZ and Australia. Love love that Diane chose off-shoulder as the theme this month because it is totally trending 100%. That black+white dress is so much fun and has the most fabulous print. It is perfect with the sneakers for an athleisure.

    Welcome by and join my brand-new linkup this week. It just went live!

    Enjoy your week, Ada. =)
