The first week of Spring hit pretty hard down here in Texas. It jumped about 30 degrees, and honestly, I think we kind of skipped Spring. But everyone from Texas knows that this just means Summer is going to be a scorcher. I’m dreading it as I write this, so I’m just going to pretend I did not just say that, and enjoy this "spring” weather while I can!
It’s pretty clear that one of the big trends of 2017 are sleeves. Bell sleeves, big sleeves, fun sleeves! Personally, I love bell sleeves, because it creates drama to an otherwise plain outfit. This dress is one of my favorites to wear during the spring and fall! It feels very bohemian to me, and is fairly basic with its black and white tones. The paisley pattern and bell sleeves are what gives this outfit life and so much attitude! Plus, it's the most fun dress to spin in!
It was so unbelievably warm out the day I shot this look, that it was imperative to stop for bubble tea! Specifically mango-green tea flavored, which happens to be my go-to. I had also just seen Beauty and the Beast and was all having all the feels! I was inspired by Belle and just happened to be wearing bell sleeves! How convenient right? I stayed pretty simple with a pair of gold espadrille sliders and my wooden framed sunnies.
The sleeve trend will be here to stay for this spring, and I picked out some of my favorite bell sleeve dresses for you all to snag, wear, and look insanely cute in!
