Welcome back to a new week, friends! How was your weekend? Our kids leave for one last camp of the Summer this morning, so we soaked up a lot of family time while we could. If you follow me on Instagram, then you likely saw our shenanigans on my Story. There’s seriously never a dull moment with this bunch.
No doubt I’ll miss them this week, but I’m pretty excited about having a quiet house…and hopefully a date night or two.
Today I’m excited to share two styles for work and weekend, featuring a darling ruffle sleeve sweater. Yep, I photographed a sweater in 105-degree heat…that’s how excited I am about this new piece! You know you’re a blogger when you risk heat stroke for a cute sweater! But y’all, it’s really cute…and on sale!
I love pieces that have a classic shape and fit, but with special details, and this one fits the bill. It’s a fine gauge pullover with a mock neck and a double row of firm ruffles. It comes in several colors, but it’s hard to go wrong with black.
Fit Tip: It’s a relaxed fit…but I prefer it more fitted, so I’m wearing an XS petite.
For a fun workwear style, I paired it with these classic plaid pants with a modern cropped length. They’re a great weight for wearing year-round…I love them with these patent pumps, and they’d be so chic over knee boots when the weather cools.
The leopard bag can be worn with the strap, or tucked away as a clutch.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 2p for a defined cropped length, but would prefer the looser fit of a 4p. So I’d say size up one in petites.
The styling options are unlimited with the sleeves, but to make the sweater even more versatile…look what happens with you remove the detachable sleeves!
So fun and flirty, with a touch of sass! I paired it with my new favorite distressed jeans and leopard pumps for a casual night out style. It would be cute with a pencil skirt, too.
The jeans have a comfy mid-rise, with a raw hem and just a touch of distressing. I love the lighter wash and minimal whispering, but it’s the fit and comfort that swayed me.
Fit Tip: They’re true to size, I’m wearing 26. I’m 5’4″ and they fall just below my ankle, so they’re intended to be cropped.
Every woman needs a good leopard heel in her closet, and these are a perfect addition. They style for both work and weekend, and the heel makes them both modern and comfortable.
Fit Tip: They’re true to size.
So many options with this fun, versatile sweater! But you know I’ve never met a ruffle I didn’t love. Oh, and the sleeves reattach easily with a single zipper. It’s like two tops in one…and it’s on sale! Happy Monday, lovebugs, I hope it’s a good one.
