Stripe Sweatshirt & Bow Sleeves

cute spring stripe top outfit idea

When I first saw this striped sweatshirt, I thought that it would be a cute spring piece to add to my closet. And then I saw the grommets and bows on the sleeves. Oh my goodness! I can never pass on the opportunity to wear stripes AND bows!

When I saw THIS sweatshirt online, I thought it would be perfect for our trip to the beach for Ella’s birthday this past weekend. It had that nautical feel and was something comfortable for the car ride. It was a little chilly {and super windy} on Friday and this sweatshirt was surprisingly warm as well. And the comfort level was off the charts. Available in solid colors as well {I have my eye on the red!} the sweatshirt is a little on the boxier side — I’m wear a medium for length and still had to wear a camisole so it wouldn’t be too short. Although, I don’t mind that it’s a little oversized: it’s easy to throw on, making it the perfect weekend/errand running top. 

I also recently purchased THESE jeans with the raw hem. You may remember from THIS post that this was one spring trend I was looking forward to purchasing. Priced under $100, these jeans were super comfy — I especially loved the higher rise. I went with my regular size and they fit well — after a few hours of wearing them, they did stretch out a bit, but nothing that indicated I needed a smaller side. Anyways, I would say they run true to size! 

How was your weekend? We had such a fun time with Ella at the beach. Most years when we take her for her birthday, it’s cold and sometimes it even snows! The weather was gorgeous and she had SO much fun. She even let the ocean water touch her paws — in the past, she was strictly a sand girl 🙂 She also found a new hatred for seagulls. She was chasing them all weekend! I can’t believe Miss Ella is five years old today! She is the cutest and craziest pup I know and we love her so much! Happy Birthday, Ella! 

Have a great start to the week, friends! Stop back tomorrow for a healthy snack idea that will help to get your through the workday. Here’s a hint: it involves peanut butter! As always, thanks for stopping by!

  1. Happiest of birthdays to sweet Ella! Boy, is she precious, I just want to cuddle with her! I'm so glad y'all had a good birthday trip with her — so funny how she is so sassy and doesn't like the water much. My mom's dog, Sophie is the same way.
    LOVING this adorable sweatshirt, the bow details is too cute for words. Love that you can dress it up or down. You look great, Rachel!

  2. That sweatshirt really is so adorable, and it has a nautical feel which really was perfect for your beach weekend! I love that we both took our pups to the beach this weekend and that they had a good time! That's awesome that Ella at least let the water touch her this weekend!

  3. Yay!! I'm so glad you did a post on her birthday! I was hoping you had the best weather, and that she had the best little time! What a serious cutie. Aren't dogs just the greatest? I don't know what I'd do without our Riley. Pups just make every single day better! (PS – pretty much obsessed with that sweater too!)


  4. I'm so glad you had a great time celebrating Ella's birthday, she's way too cute, lol! Girl, that sweatshirt is too cute!!! I don't know, I just may need to get it, though I know it'll be a while until I'm able to actually wear it lol. I absolutely love everything about the design and how you've added the pop of red to the look as well. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great day so far!
