Statement Sleeves

Statement sleeves, a trend we have seen all year continues into fall fashion. Read last fall’s post on bell sleeves here. The trend started with off the shoulder and cold shoulder tops, then added bell sleeves. Now we are in full blown statement sleeves territory. This trend achieves the soft and feminine look with a side of drama. 😛 Designers style it many ways, including a lot of texture and detail in some cases. Bell, ruffle, bishop; there are so many styles to choose from. Regardless of what style(s) you are drawn to, the statement sleeves trend adds a little chic to your wardrobe!

Short Sleeves

Long Sleeves

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty relaxed. Had dinner with the family on Friday night to celebrate my sister-in-law’s birthday. Saturday the hubs worked boys’ bid day (ahhh Greek Life) and we finished the day with homemade pizza and Game of Thrones. Yesterday was a whole lot of getting ready for the work week, running errands (aka picking up my Kroger ClistList oder lol), and football. The weather here warmed up and it makes me crave the fall temperatures even more. Hope you have a great week! Until next post…xoxo Becca

Work to Happy Hour Outfit

You’ve made it to Friday! How does it feel? I am really excited to be approaching another weekend. Tonight we are celebrating my sister-in-law’s birthday. Can’t wait to see the family 🙂

I have said it before, when shopping I look for items that can be dressed up and down. An outfit like this can go from day to night or in this case, work to happy hour. Versatile pieces are essential for your closet! I love this red top because it’s comfortable, but it is also in line with the fall PANTONE color Grenadine (see inspiration post here). In my opinion, bright colors are often overlooked for the workplace, depending on your employer. I like to throw in a bright color from time to time because otherwise there would be a lot of black and white. My go to color combo heehee These Express Mid Rise Columnist Ankle Pants are my favorite dress pants. They fit so well and are the perfect length for this 5’4″ gal. Looks great with heels or flats and come in a lot of different colors. I own several pair in black. Also a sucker for pointed toe pumps…it’s a problem y’all!

By the way, did anyone see Target and Chip and Joanna Gaines announced their new product line, Hearth and Hand with Magnolia? Excuse me while I go mark my calendar and prepare to empty my bank account. I am really excited to see what products they have because I’m sure they will all be wonderful. Target has partnered with a lot of great companies the last few years and I think it is great to make fashion and home decor affordable to the masses. It’s hard to see designer everything in magazines and on blogs, knowing it’s not in your budget. This is one reasons why I try to share affordable looks here!

Have a great weekend everyone! Until next post…xoxo Becca
