Versatile Style: Split Bell Sleeves + Studded Booties

Well, guys, can you believe it’s officially DECEMBER?! I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Christmas, New Years, a new baby, and my son’s 2nd birthday are all around the corner! I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this, but both my oldest son, myself, and this babe are all January babies. Needless to say, January is a busy month for my hubby šŸ˜€Ā 

And while I’m a huge Christmas fan, December is a hit or miss month here in the lovely PNW. Meaning we can either have the most gorgeous white Christmas season, or it’s a never-ending rain show for the next four months. So here’s to hoping we have many more crisp, sunny days like these! With lots of snow, of course.



But let’s talk outfits for a minute. I’ve been rocking lots of black this season (you haven’t seen the last of it yet!), so when I stumbled on this gorgeous black + white split bell sleeve sweater during Black Friday sales, I couldn’t resist snatching it up.

You all know I’m not a fan of spending tons of money on maternity clothes- because who wants to pay for something they’ll wear less than half a year?- so I get ridiculously excited when finding bump-friendly clothes that also fit postpartum.

This lovely number is no exception! I’m a sucker for bell sleeves and that immediately drew me in. It relaxes beautifully across the body, runs true-to-size, and the long split seams on the hem and sleeves add an elegant touch. I’d consider this piece to be a classic in my closet for years to come. I’m also really hoping bell sleeves stay on trend for at least a few more seasons.

And of course, these studded booties give an otherwise preppy outfit a bit of edge. Combining various textures and styles is one of my personal style passions, because I like to keep things interesting (without going overboard). How boring would it be if we all stuck to one style though, right?

  1. I love the side slit sweater! It totally works with the belly, but I know you will rock it without too! It just adds a little feminine touch to a basic piece!

  2. These boots are hot! I love the studs on them! And by the way I LOVE your hair color, I am always trying to find the right stylist to bring mine that light

  3. I absolutely love the split bell sleeves on your sweater! They look really nice paired with your clutch. I would definitely wear this outfit! SO cute!
    Thank you for linking up this week!
