Striped Bell Sleeves, Bows, and Velvet Mules

Striped Bell Sleeves | Running in Heels

If this isn’t a transitional outfit I wouldn’t know what else to call it! I think it’s pretty clear that striped bell sleeves are here to stay for a while, and I love finding new ways to wear them! There are two ways to do transition from Summer to Fall, tanks with long pants or long sleeves with shorts. I prefer the latter, so this outfit with striped bell sleeves is one of the best for transitioning this season!

I’m going to rewind for a minute because it is nowhere near Fall in Texas, and it will be shorts weather for at least 3 more months, however this striped bell sleeves top is great to wear now, and later! Don’t you just love when it works out like that? Plus it’s the perfect price at just under $40! Let’s talk about these mules for a minute. Even though it’s summer I’m, loving crushed velvet, so these mules definitely caught my eye. Plus they’re only $30! PS one of my favorite grabs from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back in stock, so grab one while it’s still available and on sale!

This weekend I went to the Dallas Blogger Brunch at Lazy Dog, and met some amazing new friends and bloggers! I finally hit the pool this weekend! It was under 100 degrees which made for a great day to lay out with a good book! Are you guys reading anything lately? I’d love some recommendations!
