One of my favorite rules of fashion is to not follow the rules at all. Take something and make it your own, always. Style is meant to be based on your own taste, preference and comfort. Today I’m styling a gorgeous, bell sleeve piece that’s only $17. It’s supposed to be worn with bows tied at the shoulders, but here I am not following the rules.
I’m pretty certain I like this blouse even more now, how I decided to wear it. Of course if you wanted bows, give yourself bows. For me it’s about highlighting my good parts, and camouflaging my not so good parts. This perfect pastel combo gives me all the feels, as it highlights my best features. I love an open shouldered top, and a blousy-fit. I often disguise my upper half way too much. When you have super long legs, you naturally feature them more.
Regardless of your body shape, make a wardrobe based on your personal style, and never settle for less. I personally appreciate affordable finds with good quality products, and a fit that’s relaxed and comfortable. I know what I like to wear, and there’s nothing more important than following your own set of rules. PS – find more of my favorite mules for spring and summer below.

There’s nothing easier to style than a cute, little shift dress. This affordable find is perfect for spring and summer. A look like this can easily work for your 9-5 job, or a night out on the town. I dressed things up with this super cool necklace, and my strappy, black heels. I could also throw on a pair of black flats and a denim jacket to make this work appropriate. You can pair your favorite shift dress with a blazer, a vest, or wear it as is. Regardless of how you style it, it’s a winning piece for the season. I just LOVE when I find a dress that I can get a lot of wear out of. I’ve linked my favorite shift dresses available right now, below. They are super affordable too!
It’s spring, so cue ALL of the off the shoulder tops, floral prints and bold colors. Speaking of cold shoulder tops, this isn’t the first or last you’ll see of me in this trend. Today’s navy and white stripes look puts a more classic spin on the warm weather style. For ONLY $19 this top is quite the bargain. I love the buttoned-up feel, and sleeves on this striped look. You can easily pair navy and white stripes with any bold, spring color. For instance, this yellow Coach crossbody bag from their pre-spring collection, is the perfect choice. I also tend to keep things pretty casual, so these sandals are a key player in this outfit. This look proves that classic, navy and white stripes, or classic style in general, can be affordable.
