Pom-poms, Bell Sleeves, OTS Top!

June 25, 2017

I’m over the moon about this cute new top from Shein! It has all my favorites summer trends in one … pom-poms, bell sleeves,  and off-the-shoulder!

The Top

This top ended up being the perfect birthday blouse for a day in Santa Cruz!  The colorful pom-poms, bell sleeves and off-the-shoulder details made it such a fun, trendy look.  And to make it even more perfect, this blousy tunic gave me lots of room for indulgent birthday eating! The blouse also has a couple of nice extra features, including a lining in front for modesty, as well as the option to wear it on the shoulders as well.  A very cute, versatile top for summer fun!

The Accessories

I added some beachy accessories, like my favorite summer tote, gladiator sandals, and mirror sunnies.  I’m also wearing several of my dreamy new Kendra Scott pieces: the Lacy earrings, Jayde necklace, and Elton bracelet. And my Old Navy Kick Flares which are my fav go-with-everything summer jeans.

My Birthday

I spent a wonderful day with my husband, Shannon, at the beach. We had a beautiful breakfast with a view!  The sun came out soon after this, but that early morning fog the perfect lighting for some photos.
