Off the shoulder

How amazing is this off the shoulder peasent top by Alexander Mcqueen? Just looking at it transports me straight to summer-time, hanging outside with friends till it goes all dusky but is still warm. Bo-ho is back for spring but not as you know it. This time rather than fringing, suede, cowboy boots, long earrings and diy hand embroided everything it's maybe one of these elements but with grown up seperates. But never too much, that's the key. Too much = 'are you going to a fancy dress party?' Wear a pair of long, gypsy style earrings with your cocktail dress, a fringed carry all bag for day time or a kaftan style top over wide leg jeans. Think soft, floaty fabrics and lengths, more running through a field with flowers in your hair than grubbing it out at a festival. I'm in. Are you?
