Back in Gingham Action

Gingham bell sleeve top, high waisted black denim shorts .JPG

I'm back! It's been a few weeks, the longest I've gone without sharing an outfit with all of you loyal readers. I took some time off for myself this summer which was much needed. I took a vacation overseas to Paris and toured Spain for a few weeks and it was amazing! Needless to say, I needed an extra week to recover. Jet lag hit me like a ton of bricks and all I could do was concentrate on getting through the week at work. Taking a break felt good but I missed sharing my favorite outfits with you all!

I'm slowly getting into the gingham trend but it does have to be the perfect piece. When I saw this top, the first thing I noticed were the fun sleeves. I've been all about the sleeves this year, and these are so light weight and fluffy. I'll admit, sleeves in Texas in August is a terrible decision, and I soon found that out, after about 10 minutes. But who cares, I looked so cute right? 

My new favorite high waisted denim is right here. I have the hardest time finding denim that fits me well, and this year TopShop has been the winner. What saves me is that they carry petite sizes so the length of shorts are normal but they also fit my curvy frame. I am tempted to buy these in multiple colors! I paired this look with a pair of simple white mules, which I've only worn twice because I'm so paranoid about getting them dirty!
