Look at them sleeves.
Every time I wear this adorable bubble-sleeved top, I reminisce about the first time I walked downstairs and my husband saw me in it. Ohhh how I wish I could tell you he told me how radiant I looked or that this voluptuous sleeve was SOOO rosé, but he didn’t. No, no; not my Kurt. My Kurt simply took one look at this bubble-sleeved top and asked if I was just cast in a 19th century Victorian play and snagged the lead role as Lady Stein.
I gotta hand it to the man, he was funny AND incredibly clever. However, I personally would’ve preferred the whole MTV True Life: I’m Channeling Anne of Green Gables bit as I felt more in tune with her that day shooting on this dirt road. I just needed my trusty hat and I would’ve been set. Anyway – that’s neither here nor there.
Lady Stein and Ms. GG aside, I completely dig these embroidered bubble sleeves. They’re just adorable! The embroidery detailing and bubble feature completely turn up the volume on the otherwise classic off the shoulder look. Plus, I’m always down for a fun sleeve that adds drama and turns heads.
However, I have to admit that the flare denim is the particular feature of this look that steals my heart. Personally, it’s taken me a hot minute to get back into the whole flare trend, but this pair of J. Brand denim sure does make it an easy decision. They’re incredibly comfy and the silhouette of the flare sure does flatter your stems. I think I’ll take it!
Have you guys been loving flares this year?! I’d love to hear.
