SAHMonday: Cinched Sleeve Shirt Three Ways

Happy Monday pretties!  I hope you had a super fantastic weekend.  Mine was pretty much just that.  Craig agreed to bring the Christmas decorations down from the attic before Thanksgiving. #winning  So I spent the weekend in Christmas euphoria decorating the house. If you follow me on Instagram, you also know I did my fair share of Hallmark movie watching.

We rounded out the weekend with a beautiful day at Texas Rose Horse Park watching Ava compete with her horse Razzle at their year end show.  She actually wept after one of her rounds because of the amount of progress they’ve made together this year. #perfectweekend

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet!

By now you probably know that I’m a basic t-shirt and jeans kind of girl but that can get a little boring.  So anytime I see a cute tee with interesting details, I have to have it. It’s the little things that really make a difference! When I spied the cinched sleeves on this top I knew it would be one of those outfit making type of pieces.

When I got home, I immediately went to work pairing it up with other pieces in my closet.  Here are three outfits created from it.

Outfit #1

Cinched Sleeve Top + Frayed Hem Jeans + Pendant Necklace + Gold Flats

This is one of my basic no-fail SAHM outfit formulas that I wear all the time. Cute top, frayed hem jeans, long necklace and comfy ballet flats – it works like a charm!

Sizing Tip:  I sized up in the top because I like it to fit more like a tunic.  I’m wearing a size medium. The jeans fit true to size.

Outfit #2

Cinched Sleeve Top + Velvet Puffer Vest + Faux Fur Scarf + Ponte Leggings + Riding Boots

Let’s pause to talk about this velvet puffer vest for a second.  If you add one thing to your winter wardrobe, let this be it! It is a MUST HAVE and honestly one of the most special things I’ve bought in a long, long time.  It’s extremely well made and lined in satin and elevates any outfit (even a top and leggings) into the stratosphere!

Wearing a vest over this shirt allows the cute sleeves to show while a cardigan or coat would cover them up. Try a vest with your bell sleeve or ruffle sleeve tops this winter.

Sizing Tip:  Use the sizing chart when ordering the vest.  I’m wearing an XS and it’s cut generously. If in doubt, size down.

These ponte leggings are the go-to pair in my closet.  They’re thick and feel more like pants than leggings to me which means extra coverage!

Outfit #3

Cinched Sleeve Top + Gray Jeggings + Tassel Necklace + Gray Ankle Booties

Let’s just agree that green and gray were made for each other!  It’s hard to see in the picture but there’s a gray cord on this tassel necklace that ties the outfit together quite nicely.

Sizing Tip:  The gray jeggings fit true to size but have a lot of stretch. If in doubt, size down.
