I’ve never been a bell sleeve fan but when I laid eyes on this beauty, everything changed!

It’s the truth. I have NEVER been a fan of bell sleeves. It’s not that I don’t like the look of them. Instead it’s that I always got annoyed by them. I always felt like I was pushing them up or like they got in the way. Is that weird? Or does anyone else feel like that? 

Well when I saw this pretty little white bell sleeve blouse with blue embroidery I decided to give it a go again. It had honestly been years since I even tried a bell sleeve top on. Much to my surprise, I wasn’t as bothered. I think it’s partially due to the fact that I am obsessed with this particular blouse. The detail is SO pretty and to me, the blouse just screams summer.

So with all that said, I apologize in advance if I am wearing this almost daily when you see me on my IG stories. 

Another item I can’t get enough of lately, this basket bag from J.McLaughlin. It’s the BEST! The basket bag is SO fun to carry! I swear I’m instantly in a better mood when this bag is in my hand or on my arm. And there’s no doubt it puts me in a summer state of mind. Who doesn’t want that?! 

My advice for picking out your go to basket bag is go for one that makes you smile! Try a bunch on in the store or order several to try out. If you find yourself smiling while carrying it, swinging it around, or going googly eyed over it then you’ve found your winner! Basket bags are definitely made to enjoy and have fun with. J.McLaughlin has some of the BEST basket bags, shop them all here

Also, lesson of today, try items you previously weren’t a fan of. You never know when your style might change or when you mature and can handle different cuts 🙂

    I was definitely skeptical about the bell sleeve trend, too! I really like them now, though! This one is adorable with the embroidery!
