Happy Thursday ladies. Do you wear cold shoulder tops? They seem to come in and out of fashion on a semi-regular basis and since they say our shoulders are one of the last things to go, they’re popular with many women over 50.

Growing up, I always sensitive about my wide shoulders. They felt overpowering and looked masculine to me. Then in my 30s, I had a eureka moment. I heard a lady who was walking behind me, remark to her husband, “look at her great shoulders, I wish I had them”. I was totally shocked. The body part I hated, she wished she had? That one comment made me reexamine my biases about my body and gave me the confidence to enjoy them.

Fast forward and exposed shoulders became the rage so I happily added some styles to my wardrobe.Jennifer Connolly wearing a cold shoulder top

Here’s that top today, worn with white jeans and sandals. This top has survived 3 years of closet cleanouts, principally because of the color but also because it covers my bra straps…most of the time.
