Bell Sleeve Top & White Jeans with Floral Skinny Scarf

Well, we survived Snowmageddon. It actually turned out to be a bit of a bust. When I woke up yesterday morning to the sound of sleet on my windows, I knew our epic snow storm was going to fall short, and it did. There was enough for the kids to play in, but it was pretty icy and gross… definitely not the fluffy, powdery foot of snow we were expecting. I guess the weather system went a little further west than they were predicting, and our total snowfall amounted to a mere 4-5 inches with ice on top.

The kids still enjoyed a day off from school, and we maintained our electricity, so all is well. This morning they’re going back on a two-hour delay. (And all the mommas said, Hallelujah!) One snow day is fun, but when you start adding on, it gets a little tiresome. Plus, I don’t want them to lose any of their Spring Break, because we have travel plans.

So today’s post is the last outfit from our trip to Nashville. It seems like ages ago, but it was only a couple of weeks.

This bell sleeve top came from Trunk Club a few weeks ago, and I’ve already worn it a bunch of times. It’s cute and flirty but practical too. It also comes in red, pale pink, and a navy & white stripe. For $49, it won’t break the bank, and the quality is really nice. The material is kind of thick, which makes it nice for this time of year. I’m not sure I’d wear it in the dead of summer, but it’s nice for spring and fall.

I always get asked about sizing. I actually have the medium. The small is probably my proper size, but because it’s kind of long and cut very straight, I wanted to front-tuck it, and that seems to work better with the medium. FYI, it also comes in petite sizes, and that may work better if you are 5’4″ or shorter. (I am 5’5″ and short-waisted.)

Because it has that nice, wide neck, I felt like it was begging for a neck scarf. I actually prefer the skinny scarves to the square ones that you have to fold and roll. This one has a lot less fabric so it’s not as bulky. I do wish I’d tied it a little bit tighter so it would sit up higher on my neck and not keep sliding to the front. I’m still getting the hang of styling these!

I wanted to create a fun date night look for spring, so I wore my white jeans and pink suede pumps. The pink pumps are the perfect shade to go with this scarf.

These are such comfortable pumps. They have a padded footbed and a 3 3/4″ heel. I have a hard time finding pumps I can walk in because I have a narrow heel, but these are perfect. I have them in black leather as well. I highly recommend them if you have narrow feet and struggle with pumps.

This cuff bracelet is an oldie but goodie from Stella & Dot. I chose it because the 3/4 length sleeves leave a lot of arm bare and I wanted something big enough to make a statement but still delicate enough to work with the rest of the outfit. I didn’t realize it had sold out when I packed it to wear with this outfit, but this one would create a similar effect.

I wanted to carry the pink satchel from this post, but I didn’t want to pack one more bag in my suitcase, and this one actually works into the outfit nicely as well.

I can see wearing this outfit for so many purposes. It’s cute for church, a casual bridal shower or graduation party, dinner out, or probably even some work situations.
