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.
