Bell Sleeves and Wide Legs

Sometimes you need to throw caution to the wind, pair a few trends and see how they turn out. But isn’t that what makes fashion and styling fun? I think so!

Being that I am barely over five feet tall wide leg pants is a tricky look for me to pull off. I always need to wear tall heels to allow that wide leg to flow. Pairing wide leg pants with a (slight) bell sleeve top is a bold move for me. I was not sure how this would look but I am loving the combo! It works because of my shirt is tucked in creating some definition to my small frame.

I purchased both my top and pants from Kohl’s last month on mega clearance- both items marked under $10! Throw some Kohl’s cash on top of that and this outfit was basically free! Besides my shoes (those olive booties again) I was not able to find any of my exact outfit details to link up for you gals but make sure to check out the items I put in the product widget. I found a lot of great dups so you can create a similar look!

What’s a trend you’d love to mix even if it is outside your comfort zone?

The Last White Denim Look for 2017

Saying goodbye to a great pair of white denim for more reasons than just the season.


I do not necessarily follow the Memorial Day to Labor Day rule when it comes to white pants but rather I let the weather do the deciding. Usually I break out my bright white jeans in March or April but I pack them away when September rolls around.

Without realizing it when I took these photos, this would be my last white denim look for the year. Sure, I’ll probably break out my winter white favorite skinny cords soon but this post is a farewell to these jeans. Not only has the weather significantly dropped over night but these jeans are actually too big now!

I bought this white pair to get me through the season since I’m still losing the baby weight. To be honest when I decided I felt confident enough to do a tucked in shirt look I was totally surprised to see I could get one of my skinny belts buckled. Hands up for dedication! 🙌🏼

These jeans were my first ever Paige brand jeans and I truly love the way they fit and feel. There’s no comparison to good quality denim. Jeans that hold their shape wash after wash but yet feel so comfortable you never want to take them off- that’s magical. I always try to snag my denim on major sale or from top department store outlets (The Rack, Off Fifth, Last Call, etc.)

Here are a few looks I shared on the blog this season:

My last look was a #CasualFriday work look. I paired with a cold shoulder button up, a fun pattern neutral wedge sandal (last season) and cute jacket earrings I picked up from my girls at Heart Mercantile.

While I’m hopeful we’ll have a few more warm days here in Dayton, it’s officially time for me to say peace out to summer and hello to fall. ✌🏼So long white jeans, it’s been a great season!
