I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Now that the weather is warmer, I am able to wear some items like this blouse that I got back in February, but couldn't wear without freezing until now. As a sheer top, it just wasn't warm enough and the bell sleeves didn't layer as nicely under a cardigan or blazer as I would have liked. Black isn't a color you typically think of for spring, but it still works especially when paired with lighter colors like white and cognac or tan accessories instead of matchy-matchy black. The lighter colors help to brighten up the outfit and bring it into spring. Bright accessories would be fun to pair with it, too! If you are looking to purchase, this top runs true to SheIn sizing. I would size up one size. I typically wear a small and I am wearing a medium here. 

Last week's most popular post was from Maria at Pasion Fruit, Paws and Peonies with her hard to style piece. She looks fabulous and I love her delicate dress paired with the edgy moto jacket!

  14. I wore my white eyelet top from SheIn the other day and had several people stop me and tell me how cute it was and then I wore the gingham bow back dress Sunday and got the same reaction. I need to be ordering more from SheIn. This is a super cute top!

  21. Hey sugar foot! So glad to see you wearing black and white because I never think to wear it!! Ha! Maybe I will remember to try it now. I have darker hair and always think that folks with light hair wear black better. You certainly wear it well. And those cute sleeves are kind of problematic with jackets and cardis. I went on a bell sleeve buying binge (a lot of Bs) but (another B) the sleeves really have to be all wadded up and shoved into my cardigans. Guess I need to wear them now that it is warmer sans outer layer!
