Floral Bell Sleeve Blouse

Happy Monday, friends! Another week means another floral on ABM! Although florals in the spring are by no means a new, hot trend, it is one of the things I look forward to most when picking out my spring wardrobe. However, bell sleeves are a hot trend for spring and the sleeves on this floral blouse are just about perfect.

Floral Bell Sleeve Blouse: cabi c/o | Black Cropped Jeans: cabi c/o {from the fall 2016 season, similar HERE} | Sunglasses: Le Specs {under $60!} | Bucket Bag: Mark and Graham c/o | Espadrilles: Marc Fisher | Watch: MICHELE | Ring: David Yurman | Lipstick: Angel & #200

I first saw THIS blouse when cabi was teasing the new spring line on Instagram a few months ago. I instantly fell in love with the bell sleeves, but who wouldn't? Fittingly named the "la-di-da blouse", I love the darker floral colors, perfect for transitioning to spring. You can easily pair this blouse with black pants or jeans on these cooler spring days and white jeans as the warmer temperatures begin to arrive. And speaking of colors, I had originally planned to pair this blouse with blush shoes {since I've been all about the color lately: exhibit A, exhibit B} but since I wore this outfit to dinner last Friday and the temperatures we virtually summer-like, I went with my favorite espadrilles from last spring. Needless to say, this blouse can be paired with both blush and orange accessories, as I did here. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Just a funny story about these pictures. I was heading down to my parent's house Friday after work and we had planned to photograph this outfit right when I arrived. Just to make sure I made it before sunset, I left work at 2:30pm, giving me plenty of time to travel the 60 miles to their house. Unfortunately, route 95 south had different plans. I should know by now that 95 is bad no matter what time of the day, but especially on a Friday afternoon...when the temperatures are in the upper 70s. Thankfully, I did make it with a little daylight to spare, but it was a long, stressful drive with some serious road rage on my end! haha!

Have a great start to the week and see you back here tomorrow for a make ahead lunch or dinner recipe you won't want to miss!

  19. Such a beautiful blouse, girlie! I love the overall fit and the color of the florals, it indeed pairs well with either blush or orange accessories! Speaking of, I adore those espadrilles! Omg, I know EXACTLY how 95 can be, haha. Especially on a nice day or when there's an accident on the OTHER SIDE and everyone wants to drive 2 miles an hour to be nosey, haha. Nonetheless, I'm glad you were able to get the photos done. I know the anxious feeling of not being sure if it'll get done or not and it always feels like a saving grace when it does, doesn't it!? Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a very Happy Monday so far!

  21. I love the bell sleeves! Especially the floral style for spring is so gorgeous :)

  22. I love so many things about this outfit! The shoes, the sunglasses, the sleeves on that floral top! And I LOVE having my jeans that exact length--a slightly short ankle hem is just the best in my opinion.
