Printed Bell Sleeve Blouse

cute spring outfit - A Blonde's Moment - @rachmccarthy7

Happy Monday, friends! Spring is in the air here in Northern Virginia and I couldn’t be more excited! After enjoying 70 degree temperatures on both Saturday and Sunday, it’s safe to say I’m in a spring state of mind and will be severely disappointed if we get any snow in the next month or so! Now, on to today’s springy look…

I wore this look on Saturday to The Blog Societies Workshop in D.C. I wanted something comfortable for sitting in for a few hours and something casual, but not too casual, and fun for a blogger event. I spotted THIS peplum blouse with the bell sleeves online and instantly knew it would be great for wearing as we transition into spring. I loved the blush accents in the print and was excited for the opportunity to wear THESE blush pink suede heels again {they are incredible comfortable!}. I actually purchased this blouse in store on Friday {nothing like waiting until the last minute!} and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to try it on. I found the sleeves to run extremely small and went up a size for a better fit. I think the larger size also helped with the length which is a constant problem for me when buying tops.

Since I was looking for something a little more than casual for the event, I paired the blouse with the cabi cropped flared denim from the fall season. Although the jeans are no longer available, I linked a super similar pair above and HERE. I have been loving the cropped and flared trend and especially looking forward to this style in the spring. I’ve had my eye on a few lighter wash cropped jeans to add to my closet, too! Lastly, a spring outfit wouldn’t be complete without THIS faux leather satchel. I mentioned this bag in last Wednesday’s post as an amazing save option for the YSL designer satchel. I carried this bag for the first time this weekend and I have to say I’m obsessed! Plenty of space, zipper closure, interior pockets and with a price tag of under $60, you just can’t beat it!

Just a quick thank you to everyone who filled out the reader survey last week. I cannot thank you enough for your input and I’m looking forward to implementing some of your suggestions! As for the winner of the $25 Nordstrom gift card giveaway — congratulations to Lisa F! Thank you to all who participated!

Have a great start to the week, friends! Thanks for dropping by!

  1. What a sweet, soft top and LOVE the pink block heels. I am wearing a bell sleeve top with peplum to work today. Just love the flow of these kinds of tops, so comfy and you look soooo CUTE!!

  2. I love that everyone has spring looks being posted this week! 🙂 But how lucky for you, that it actually FEELS like Spring for you guys! This weekend we had torrential rain, and today was only 60…so there's that. (blah!). I love these soft pink tones on you, and I'm going to scroll back up to look at those earrings again – so good!


  3. This outfit was perfect to wear for a blogging event. I am in love with your accessories: earrings, pumps, bag and bracelets. Your light pink accessories also bring out the print of that pretty blouse. And yeah we have had some warm temps here, too.

    I also welcome you to check out my blog and I would love for you to join my new linkup from this week. It is a special linkup too – a celebration. Welcome by!

    Thanks and enjoy the weekend!
