In the spirit of all things ruffles, I styled this pinstripe bell sleeve ruffle top with my pair of jeans from Inidara. I did not include pinstripes or vertical stripes in our spring trends post but it is something I’m loving right now. I used to hate stripes a lot and never understood the hype over stripes in the spring/summer period but there’s something about blue and white vertical pinstripes that gets me. I already have a few things in that color, so I opted for a black and white striped shirt from SheInside instead. The icing on this delicious cake was the slightly exaggerated sleeves. However, if you’d love to see a more exaggerated bell sleeve top, see my recent upload below.
It’s funny how the top above was to be featured in this lookbook but I ironed this dark striped one instead so when it was time to shoot, I was left with no other option. It made me a little bit upset because I really love the quadruple tiered sleeve detail going on with this white top. Two days later, I had an event and out came my previously forgotten top.
Lesson: Things always work out. You may not understand why things happen the way they happen at the moment, but trust and believe that it will all pan out well.
The white top definitely gave my outfit a little sparkle and I can’t wait to wear it all summer.
Over to this look…
