I have been itching to share this outfit with you, because I’m utterly obsessed with everything about this look.
When I wore this outfit, I felt like a Butterfly-Goddess. I just wanted to prance around waving at anyone and everyone who passed by. Sadly, I didn't actually do that, because I get super shy around new people and strangers, and there were a lot of strangers around. I would like to think that I played it cool, but I’ll leave it up to Emilie to decide my cool-factor for that day.
Back to this lovely outfit and me feeling like a Rhopalocera (aka a butterfly).
Huge shout out to Emilie with Emilie Anne Photography for the beautiful photos!
To be fair, the Butterfly-Goddess vibes I was getting were probably from the sleeves - errr… it’s most definitely the sleeves. They were giving me butterflies (badum tsh, comin in hot with those dad-jokes). I’m also crazy obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops, so the fact that this shirt has bell sleeves AND the off-the-shoulder look translates to a serious win/win here. If you’re in the off-the-shoulder-top club like me, then you know how important it is to find a shirt with a high-quality elastic band that isn’t too tight, or too loose. We're keeping it Goldilocks Style here. The elastic band that held the shirt in place was that perfect fit. It wasn’t too tight, nor was it unreliably loose - imagine THAT disaster. I’m also in love with the colors of this shirt, very late-summer-meets-fall vibes. For those of you who are like me, and like to pretend that the weather here in Austin is a lot cooler than it really is, then you’re going to love this top. For being a long sleeve, dark colored shirt, it’s incredibly breathable, and the fabric is unbelievably soft. Don’t be alarmed if you see me fluttering down the streets of Austin in this outfit.
I paired this top with my high waisted jeans, black strappy wedges, thick velvet choker, and of course, my Kendra Scott jewels.
I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog! I hope it's brought a little light-hearted joy to your life, and it’s full of beautiful inspiration.
