Sassy Sleeves

Sassy Sleeves

There are 3 things in life worth splurging on...

1. The extra $10 to get dip powder on your nails instead of shellac (If you haven't switched to powder yet, what are you even doing!?!?!)

2. Extra brainer.

3. Free People sweaters (especially if they have bell sleeves) 

I look forward to fall and winter each year because Free People releases their new sweater styles. They always end up being the most worn pieces in my closet. I have FP sweaters I bought in high school that I STILL wear because they are made well and will last a long time, making them totally worth the extra cheddar.

The bell sleeve trend took me a minute to get on board with, but now I'm hooked. These sassy sleeves are flirty and fun. They have a way of adding a dressy feel to an otherwise casual and comfy sweater. In case you haven't picked up on this yet- I am ALL about comfort when it comes to everyday outfits. I promise to never lead you astray in the comfy, cozy department. 


Did I mention that it is cropped? My jeans are a little high waisted, so keep that in mind if you decide to get this sweater. It is not cropped enough to show any tummy, but the crop hits right above the belt line and makes it flirty! Sometimes winter sweaters can get bland and boring, not to mention unflattering... but this sweater is not like your normal sweater, it's a cool sweater. (Yes, that was a Mean Girls reference, carry on.)

If pink isn't for you, it also comes in black, white, maroon and blue. So to recap...bell sleeves, v-neck, cropped, comes in 5 colors....thats 4 for you Free People, you go Free People (yes, that was another Mean Girls reference...sue me)

If you can't bite the bullet and spend more $$ on this exact sweater, I am linking some ahhhhmazing similar options that are a little more budget friendly! If you need some good basic black jeans and booties, I'll drop those links below for you as well. I should tell jeans are from H&M and they are called "Shaping Jeans". For girls with curves, these are a great fit and hug all the right places. They're under $40 and will be your go-to denim, I pinky promise.
