Let’s get right to it, shall we? This sweater. So. Good. I swore I wasn’t buying any sweaters this year because it’s been so hot but this one was just too good to pass up. Unlike anything I have in my closet these sleeves are just so fun and on trend. The color is also one of my faves and at well below $30 I had to take the plunge. I am so glad I did! I have mentioned SheIn before and I am happy to mention it again. It’s a great online shopping resource, great prices for on-trend styles. Check out this similar sweater it’s $25 and comes in 3 colors!This one in olive is such a steal at less than $20! I love that SheIn offers free shipping and returns. I’ve ordered from them several times and I have had great experiences. I have had to make a return and it was easy. As always I recommend you read the details on the items you’re thinking of purchasing carefully. In this instance these sweaters are one size fits all. This made me a little nervous but I decided to go for it.
I am short waisted and I like the length of this sweater. I am also thrilled that jeans are not quite as low cut as they once were! I am wearing jeans from Loft.Mine are a few months old but these are similar. I like the dark wash and these feel more like trousers than jeans. In any case they were super comfortable for a day of in-service training.
My jeans are slightly longer than the jeans I normally wear so I opted for booties with a higher wedge heel. They are comfortable but I bought them a few years ago at TJ Maxx. Here’s a pair that’s very similarWomen’s Toms ‘Desert’ Wedge Bootie • Toms • $69.90 .
I kept my jewelry very simple because these sleeves were doing all the talking, lol! I wore just a simple pair of earrings and my usual watch and bangles.
Wearing something so different was fun! Honestly I felt like I needed to go dancing with those sleeves but opted instead for happy hour at Bar Louie. The outfit held up well from work to a night out it was a winner in my book! And, FYI, I washed the sweater the next day and hung it to dry. It washed like a dream!
I’ll tell you what bell-sleeves, tulip sleeves, and ruffled sleeves are on trend and will continue to be right into spring and summer. Have you tried this trend? Are you ready to take the plunge? I say go for it and have some fun! This trend is for everyone it’s up to you how you wear it. That’s what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag today, what’s in yours?
