SAHMonday: Striped Bell Sleeves and Colored Denim

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly 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.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

Striped Bell Sleeves and Colored Denim

Remember when I said I needed a striped shirt intervention?  Yeah, well I definitely have a problem because not even a day later, I acquired yet another one.  SMH…

As luck would have it, a striped bell sleeved top came in my Stitch Fix this month (I told you my stylist knows me really well) and of course I didn’t have the heart to send it back! I wrestled with it for a few hours but ultimately, the striped shirt won.

It’s my kryptonite. 🙂

And yes, I already had a striped top with bell sleeves.  So how did I justify this one?  It has wide stripes and a different neckline. It’s the little things!  Different topic but did you know that you can request specific items to be put into your Stitch Fix?  Maybe I’m behind the curve but I just found this out!  So if you want a striped bell sleeve top and colored denim, you just let your stylist know in the comments and they’ll do their best to include it.

Today I paired up my new striped bell sleeve top with a pair of coral jeans I’ve had for a few years.  It’s such an easy outfit for working from home.  Add in some comfy metallic flats and a dash of leopard and you’re good to go!

  • This top is SO adorable! I love colored denim, but I don’t own a single pair! I really have been wanting some in pink!

  • Bell sleeves are a great way to update the classic striped top for Spring. I love the colour of the jeans, and the metallic flats and leopard print bracelet finish off the outfit perfectly! Thanks so much for linking up 🙂
