Bell Sleeve Top for Weekend

I know it’s only Tuesday, but I’m already thinking about the weekend–how about you?

That said, I’m mixing it up and saving my “night out” look for tomorrow, bringing you the weekend version of this sweet bell-sleeve top a few days early. Aside from loving this top, my photographer Sarah and I were really excited to have a break in the rain on the day we shot these photos. It had been pouring all morning long, and the weather during our previous shoot was in the ballpark of 14 degrees. It was nice to finish up a morning of photos with a little bit of sunshine and a fun, graphic wall. I always appreciate a great wall and there are so many great options around the city!

If you’re not familiar with Pittsburgh, it’s an old steel town, and there are remnants of its glory days in many crevices of the city. I’ve always loved the way they contrast an uber feminine look when shooting my own outfits or those of other bloggers.

Styling for Weekend

Just like in yesterday’s post, I prefer to style a full-volume top like this with a fitted bottom. Doing so provides the necessary balance, and prevents your look from overwhelming you, possibly even making you look a bit frumpy. My weekend outfits are generally pretty minimal, so I opted for only my favorite watch and a go-to crossbody in the way of accessories. A pair of high-waisted skinny jeans and suede booties contribute to my dressed-down, comfortable look.

Up Next: Styling for a Night Out

Stop back again tomorrow to see how I’ve styled this top for it’s third and final look–a night out. Even better, though, I’m teaming up with other fantastic bloggers to share our favorite takes on faux fur. I’m always excited to see how different bloggers can make a trend their own, so I’m excited to see each of the girl’s stylings.

Coming Soon: February Features!

This bell sleeve top was the fourth and final piece of our January features, and I had so much fun creating these looks for you all, that I’m going to continue through February to see how it goes. We’ll close out the week with the introduction of next month’s “Featured Four” and another survey to get your feedback on how you felt about the January closet challenge.

Thank you all so much for following along this month!

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
