I’m Cold Shoulder Obsessed

Before I say a word, the tee’s I’m gushing profusely about below have not been gifted to me.

No Siree. I sought them out.

Although I must say, gifted or not, every single item I normally talk to you about here on the blog, has to pass my test.

It will always be something I love and believe in, it also has to be pieces I think YOU would like to know about too.

Not every item I talk to you about will be your thing, but hopefully the items I feature will give you the inspiration to adapt a look or an idea, to make it your own.

Today though, I’m truly finding it hard to contain my excitement about these tee’s from Katies.

So please consider this blog post my first ever community service announcement.

Think of it as me, giving you, a gentle style nudge in the right direction.

Because the style, shape and price of these babies are far too good to pass by beauties.



They are also remarkable at disguising bingo wings 😉


Katies Stripe Cold Shoulder ^Top $29.95 | Seed Heritage Straight Rip Jeans $89.95 | White Tiger Designs IRIS necklace*  | Country Road  shoes from last year

Creating the perfect off-duty style that looks effortless, is always my dream.

I want to look crisp and well put together but with very little effort.

You see, I’m a lazy ass. If it takes too much fuss and bother – it lands in the ‘too hard basket’.

A bit like my fake tan yesterday.

Until I stand in my wardrobe in the mornings, I have no idea what I want to wear.

All I know is I want my wardrobe to work hard for me.

Because I’m not much of a planner (with the exceptions of special occasions of course).

My classic style personality dictates the overall direction of my purchases.

So my wardrobe (with the exception of my CR work wardrobe) is quite easy to shop.

I want outfits combinations to jump out at me.

Stripes really help with these fusions.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always leaned easily towards stripes.

I just can’t resist them.

Stuff and nonsense that they make you look bigger/wider. I think everyone can wear stripes.

If you want too that is!

So when a voucher was emailed to me from Katies recently, I jumped online to see what was available.


The stripe cold-shoulder top appeared before my very eyes.

Done deal.

The whole shopping experience lasted just a couple of minutes.

Stripes are a no-brainer for you too right?

Especially when said stripes are in the form of a cold-shoulder top.


Size wise, I decided to go for a large in the top, and not my usual medium as I wanted to gain an extra touch of length.

Anyway a couple of days later, I received the message from Katies to pop into my local Maroochydore store to collect my present from me to me (I’d opted for a store pick-up – minimal fuss works for me).

First thing I spied on the rail was the cold shoulder’s sitting neatly winking away at me.

The black was just begging to come home with me too….how could I refuse?

My justification?

Everything is better in two’s!


Katies Cold Shoulder Top^ $29.95 (wearing a L) | Seed Heritage Straight Rip Denim Jean $89.95 (wearing 14) |  Mimco: Clutch |Witchery heels (new season but sold out)

These tops are perfect for almost any occasion.

They can be dressed up or down and work perfectly when worn with your favourite denim.

The cut out shoulder really offers a touch of sophistication, but ticks all of my lazy girl boxes on the stylish stakes.

Now, all I need now is for Jonny to surprise me with a date-night…because my outfit is already good-to-go!

Just before I dash…guess what I’m doing in my lunchtime today?

Going to get the white one.

Oh yes I am.


Tell me lovelies, would this top work in your wardrobe too? Are you tempted?


The White Tiger Designs necklace * was gifted to me in accordance with my disclosure policy.
