Bell Sleeve Blouse

Happy hump day everyone!! It's Wednesday and that means this week is halfway over. Woohoo 😃 I have a three day weekend coming up and I'm so ready to get to it even though it's supposed to rain here in Southeast Texas. Oh well that's why I always have a contingency plan. I have an is a great way to get in out of the rain. 😉 If you do decide to go shopping I have found an amazing blouse for you. It's super cute and affordable and should be a must have for any woman's wardrobe.

I love the bell sleeve tops that are all over Pinterest and Facebook right now. They are so retro and super feminine that I just knew I had to own at least one. Luckily I found the perfect one while on a recent shopping trip to Burke's Outlet for less than $15!! Blue isn't my first color of choice usually but I'm so glad I decided to give this blouse a try. The color goes great with my pale skin tone and it hangs just right over my frame so it's not too loose and not too tight. The material is silky smooth but not stretchy so be sure to buy your correct size or it may not fit very well in the shoulders when you try to cross your arms. I love how big the sleeves are. It makes me feel like the ultimate retro princess when I wear it 👑 This particular shirt is no longer available online so I've linked a few similar items. You may still be able to find this exact blouse at your nearest Burke's Outlet store.

For this blouse I decided to keep with the retro theme and wear a pair of distressed bell bottom jeans. I found these jeans a few weeks back from Macy's on sale for less than $25. They are the perfect fit for both me and the outfit because I finally found a pair of bell bottom jeans that don't drag the ground when I wear them. Granted I am wearing a very tall pair of chunky heeled booties but all of these types of jeans that I've tried on before drag the ground even then so this is such a WIN for these awesome jeans. My chunky heeled booties are so comfortable. I love the all over lace and the tie up front that further give this entire outfit that super "rad" retro feel. I purchased these beauties online from Shoe Dazzle a few years back on sale for about $20 and I've never regretted this particular impulse buy 💸 This is the perfect outfit for that dinner date with your friends or family that you have coming up. If you want you could also pair this blouse with a cute white skirt or pants and some sandal wedges to give the whole outfit more of a summer feel. To recreate my look:

Jeans similar similar plus size
Shoes similar

Isn't this blouse so beautiful?! Are you into the retro look? How would you wear this blouse differently? I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy the rest of your hump day and happy shopping 💲💳

Goodbye for now...Fashionable Tigress ❤
