Black Bell Sleeve Tee & Jeans

Good morning friends! It’s supposed to be another scorcher here today. Actually the rest of the week is looking like it’s going to be that way. Katie and I went out last week and took these pictures. I’ll tell ya’, it’s so windy around here that it makes it really challenging to get pictures where my hair isn’t going every which way.


I ordered this ruffle sleeve tee weeks ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to sharing it, it’s  sold out. Boooo! Luckily it’s available in a tie front version that’s basically the same and comes in 7 other colors and patterns. Yippee! It goes without saying that I’m a real sucker for a cute detail like a ruffled sleeve to up the cute factor on a basic piece like a t-shirt.

I’m carrying my Michael Kors saddle colored purse. I love the structure and size of this bag. You can find a similar one here or this striped option would be so cute for summer.

 This little tee is one of the softest shirts I’ve ever purchased. It’s the same maker as my the bell sleeve top I shared with you here. This brand is one of my go-to’s for quality and comfort. I paired it with a couple of other closet favorites of mine. Distressed jeans and wedges. If you haven’t yet purchased a good pair of wedges for the summer I highly recommend these. You get the look and height of a heel without the discomfort. These are surprisingly easy to walk in and comfortable. 


What are your plans today? We are meeting our friends that are visiting a big splash pad to let the littles play. I bet between the water play and heat they’ll be ready for some good naps this afternoon.

Happy Tuesday!

    Have fun at the splash pad! We've become early morning and late evening swimmers so we can avoid this crazy heat. Love that top!

      Thanks Allie! It didn't last long. The kids tuckered out pretty quickly, but it was fun.

    A beaded turquoise necklace is a great Summer accessory. I love the peplum sleeve on that chic black top. =)

    Welcome by on Thursday and linkup with me pretty lady. And I'd love you to co-host Thursday Moda with me sometimes. I have dates open in July and August. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks, Ada. =)

    That top is so cute! I love the turquoise jewelry you paired with it! It really pops against the black top!

    Lisa you look great in these pictures! Your healthy eating is showing – you look awesome in those jeans. It's super hot and windy here too, I have some pictures that make me look like Cousin It from The Adams family, my hair is so crazy! Anyway, keep up the good work because it is definitely paying off!

      You are such a doll and you just made my day…maybe my week!❤️ My daughters nickname is "IT" from the Adams family?. When she was little, she'd get out of bed and come downstairs with her hair hanging over her face and we started calling her that. Her Insta and Twitter names are "theittfactor" Thanks for the kind words!!! XOXO

      Thanks Jill! They're so fun. I wore this again yesterday. The shirt is like having on your jammies…love that!

    Hi Lisa, I was able to get this same top before it was sold out but it's wide on the bottom. Should it be? Just curious how it fit on you. Thanks!

    • June 27, 2017 / 11:11 pm

      Hi Kathy! I think it is a little wider than a typical tee. (actually something I really liked, since I have a bit of a pear shape?) Have a great day!

    Lisa, I'm a pear shape too so it works for me too. I actually went out looking for a turquoise necklace today since it looked so cute on you!!

    • June 29, 2017 / 4:00 am

      I'm happy it works for you too and you are too sweet. That necklace is from Accessory Concierge and they are having a sale right now for 40% site wide for July 4th. Code America??? (I'm not an affiliate, I just love their stuff)
