Hello, friends! Happy Monday! Today I’m styling a floral trumpet sleeve top for spring.
Ironically, we’re expecting a major nor’easter tomorrow. Gotta love a snowstorm in March! I’m trying to get as much work in today as possible since I’ll probably have kids underfoot for the next few days.
Last week we had some nice mild weather, but my husband (also my photographer) was in Seattle all week for work, so I sent out an s.o.s. to a few local photographers to see if I could shoot some spring outfits before winter returns. I was fortunate enough to find two talented ladies willing to fit me in on the nicest days. I shot this look with Dottie Foley in downtown West Chester, a great little college town in our area.
The second I saw this floral blouse, I was smitten. I don’t normally wear prints, much less florals, but something about this one spoke to me.
I absolutely love the trumpet sleeves and the ruffle hem, and the color palette is so springy and pretty.
The back has this keyhole tie closure that’s a pretty feature as well. I did wear a nude cami under this top because it’s fairly sheer. Also, at one point, the wind blew so that my shirt blew up, and I was glad I had some extra coverage. All that to say, I would definitely recommend a base layer with this top.
I paired it with my favorite distressed jeans and espadrille wedges in keeping with the boho vibe.
These shoes are my favorites from last summer, and now they’re 50% off at 6pm.com. (Lucky you!) They’re still spendy, but Stuart Weitzman makes one gorgeous shoe, and they’re incredibly comfortable too, especially considering the height. I have the Dove, but the Adobe color is also a nice choice and very versatile.
The popular Marc Fisher Adalyn or Annie espadrilles would also be cute with this outfit, as would these with the criss-cross straps. For a lower priced espadrille, these Steve Madden at DSW are a great dupe for the Marc Fisher Adalyn, and this pair at Target is super cute.
I carried my ivory saddle bag, another favorite from last year. Now it’s available by a 3rd party seller on Amazon, and it’s slightly discounted from last year’s full retail price. I also like this grey leather saddle bag from Rebecca Minkoff, and this Sole Society version is a nice budget buy.
I wore my beaded hoops and no other jewelry. I figured a bracelet would distract from the pretty sleeve detail, and I couldn’t decide on a necklace I liked with this. It doesn’t really need one, but the right piece could add a nice dimension to the outfit.
I’m definitely planning to pack this outfit for the fashion blogging conference I’m attending next month, and I’m sure I’ll wear it out to dinner and for some other spring events when I want something casual that is a little extra special.
For a dressier look, I think this blouse would be great paired with white jeans, and I’d also love to see it with olive-colored pants. I’ve been trying to find a pair, but so far, no dice.
