Lace Crochet and Bell Sleeve Top

I hope you guys aren’t tired of seeing blog posts on my “fun sleeve” tops – because here is another one! Haha! I seriously can’t get enough.

I wore this outfit in Philadelphia for Memorial Day Weekend. Find out more about my trip here! One of my favorite things about Philly was seeing all the cute townhouse walk-ups. I know they are in basically every city, but there is something about Philly having that old-fashioned historic vibe that I just love. When I was younger, I used to tell myself that I was going to live in one of these since I thought they were so cute! Aside from my travel post about Philly, I knew I wanted to write a fashion post on an outfit that I wore and I knew immediately that I wanted to do it on a cute street of townhouses.

I love that my boyfriend had a lot of patience and was willing to walk endlessly through Philly looking for a cute street and being my photographer on our trip. It’s cute that he even gave me tips on how to pose!

In choosing my outfit for this post, I knew I wanted it to be a casual, yet classy look since it would go with Philly’s historic vibe. And I knew this floral crochet baby doll top would be perfect. I bought this top from Chicwish for under $50! I love the floral lace detail on the neckline. It creates such a cute and feminine look. I also love how it flares out to a bell sleeve, adding another great detail to the blouse. But as a tip – this top gets super wrinkled so you have to iron it every time before you wear it. Also, for the bra situation, I wore a nude bra. Since the top part of the blouse is so busy, the bra straps weren’t visible, which was good.

Since this top is a loose fit, I wanted the bottoms to be super fitted to show my shape. I paired it with my Levi’s skinny jeans. I love Levi’s since I can actually buy a pair of jeans that fit my length. I have such an issue buying jeans since they are always long and bunch up at the bottom. Short girl problems! Ha! I always buy their jeans at their outlet stores. Since they always have good deals, I usually buy more than one pair.

To complete the outfit, I wore my cute Steve Madden wedges. I’ve recently become obsessed with Steve Madden shoes, especially since they opened up an outlet store near my house! I love that they always have my size. I’m a five and a half so it’s always hard for my size to be in stock in stores.

This is the type of outfit that can be dressed down with sandals and worn as a day outfit. You can also dress it up with heels and wear it to a dinner. I am literally obsessed with this top so you will see me wearing it a lot this summer!

With lots of love,

Dee
