Happy Tuesday friends! How are you all doing today? I have to be honest, today has been a high anxiety day for me… and I know it’s directly related to the fact that I ate some of my trigger foods last week and my body is mad about it. Plus, I had very little time for relaxation last week, and I’m someone who needs lots of quiet down time to feel like I can function. Sometimes I’m really hard on myself because I feel like I just CAN’T figure out how to have a balance of necessary busyness and times of relaxation. I mean, I can’t just stop being busy… I have four young kids ha! But I know I need to find downtime in my day otherwise I’m an anxious mess like I am today. And while I’d LOVE to have this balance figured out, I’m also finding that it’s okay to let each day be its own. Today? I don’t have it figured out. But maybe I will tomorrow… or the day after that. Anyway I digress. I wanted to share a puff sleeve top with you guys that is worthy of Anne Shirley. 🙂
I mentioned a few posts ago that I have really been leaning into my romantic side over the last year and going with my gut when it comes to styling… and my gut wants a good puff sleeve top ha! There is something so whimsical and feminine about a puff sleeve, plus it gives off an excellent retro nod without being too over the top. I just love the way it turns a very basic tee into something special. And the color of this one is perfectly neutral so it goes with a ton of things in my wardrobe. If you’re looking to spice things up in your capsule wardrobe, something like this top is the perfect way to do it. It’s still a neutral, basic top that is really versatile but it gives a wow factor to an outfit that a basic top just won’t give. I have this one in a small. I’d say to stay true to size for a more relaxed fit like mine or if you want it to be more fitted you could size down.
