Spotted

F21 blouse, LOFT sweater, Target faux leather pants, Steve Madden heels, Charming
Charlie cuff and necklace
When I put on this polka dot blouse, I realized that the sleeves were too short. No worries, I just turned the cuff back and pushed up the sleeves to give this more of a relaxed look. Cuffing a sleeve and pushing them up a bit is a great way to still get plenty of use out of a blouse, sweater, or blazer if the sleeves are just a tad too short.


As much as I adore color, I can't seem to get away from black and white (you can see a few cases here and here). I think it just might be my favorite combination.


Have a fantastic weekend!

  13. I roll my sleeves up all of the time. Now I'm not sure if I just buy things at an awkward length or if I just like things there haha.

  35. I love a good polka dot blouse. I am always cuffing and pushing sleeves up; I love the look but also have long arms, so for a lot of tops it is a must! Great tips on layering in your previous post- so handy for this time of year!
