Denim Bell Sleeves

Happy Wednesday!  A couple weeks ago I popped into Macy’s.  This was kind of a treat because I have literally not stepped foot into a Macy’s in awhile.  The one closest to my house is closing and the nearest one is not convenient.  I had the pleasure of stopping in when I had to take my son to an engineering mentoring program and had two hours to kill.  By myself #heaven. I was surprised at how much I liked the Style & Co. pieces, they reminded me of Free People with that relaxed sort of Boho vibe. I snagged two tops and with the discount, a coupon, and my Plenti points I paid around $30 for both tops.  There were a few others I had my eye on but I decided to wait since I couldn’t use a coupon (I’m such a thrifty shopper, right?).  I’m anxious for the Friends & Family sale at Macy’s so I can go back and (hopefully) grab one of the other tops I really liked. I have my eye on this one in hot pink .

The denim bell sleeve top from Style & Co. I am wearing in today’s post is perfect for warmer climates.  The 3/4 sleeves and lightweight material are cool enough for outside yet comfortable enough in the air conditioning.  If you haven’t noticed it yet sleeves are all the rage these days!  I paired the top with light pink skinny jeans from Target.  I purchased these pink jeans last year.  Of course I am wearing my favorite earrings and a tassel necklace I love.  My espadrilles from Gap were the perfect choice for this casual outfit.












Now you may be thinking you don’t really need a denim blouse because you already own a denim shirt.  Let me tell you that a top or blouse like this is a great addition.  It’s a little dressier and feminine than your standard button up denim shirt.  Wondering what you’d wear a top like this with? Well, you can wear it with any color you choose and it’s great year round.  I like to think of it this way, what would you wear with jeans? Just flip flop it, now your denim is on top.  Now you are free to let your creative juices flow!

This final picture is almost a candid shot, I really don’t enjoy getting pictures. It makes me nervous, I don’t know how to pose, and I’m always asking my husband (also my photographer) if we’re good. He has no idea if we’re good and nor do I – such newbies to all of this but we are learning. Honestly it’s funny because after the pictures have been taken and I am uploading them I notice things like my husband’s reflection in our glass front doors, a strap showing that shouldn’t be, etc.
My sweet husband had never even seen a blog until I started this one so it’s all new to him. So I think in this last picture the wind is blowing and I’m about done, lol. Thank you for sticking with me through this learning curve, I really appreciate it!

Shop similar pink jeans below since mine are old.

That’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today, would you wear pink denim?

Fashionably yours,

  1. My hubs and I were just in Macy’s last night and I was thinking had not been in there in awhile. Wish I’d have seen that top….how adorable!!!! You look so sweet!!!

  2. Oh, this denim top is Fabulous! I love the easy, boho vibe and amazing sleeves. It looks great with your pink denim. Your espadrille sandals are so on trend. Haha – I always see something I missed when I look back at my photos, too. Also, I have a link-up on Fridays so I hope you will pop in and join.

    1. Thanks Jennie! I swear one of these days I’m gonna get good pictures if it kills me, lol! I will definitely link up on Friday. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This is such a cute outfit! Love the top with the pink jeans. I have some soft pink jeans from Loft and I seem to have a little bit of a hard time deciding what to wear with them. Love the idea of denim or chambray.

    I’m a little sad that Macy’s stores are closing but I rarely go there anymore either.

    1. Thanks! I couldn’t wait to get the pink jeans last year and then I was like, “Now what am I gonna wear them with!” I do love them with chambray though.
      I used to shop at Macy’s all the time. I think my online shopping habit has kicked into gear though and if they had free shipping I’d buy more from them.
      Thank you for commenting!

    1. Thanks Sarah, you’re gonna love pink jeans, I hope you get a great pair! They are so versatile but really who knew? Certainly not me, I had a pair in the late 1990’s and got rid of them. Wish I had kept them because they were high waisted and would be perfect now! And thanks for sharing my look on TBB Friday Love’s, I am so grateful!

  4. I know I have already commented, but I wanted to some back and say thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday. Also, now that I am looking back again, I think it is so funny I featured a similar look on the blog this week. Great minds!

    1. Thanks Jennie, I love it when great minds think alike, especially when I admire the other person’s style so much!
