The only kind of drama I like – dramatic sleeves! And this my first outfit post from Rosario! I do still have travel posts left from New Zealand, but I wanted to break this week up a bit and not go too travel crazy. So, here’s a little outfit post to spice things up.

I’m always a bit late to join the party when it comes to trends, but I do LOVE the dramatic sleeves trend that has been going on. I finally tried it for myself now with this blouse. These big sleeves are so fun for a change! I just have to be careful while I’m eating, haha. And this blouse is just $15! Not too shabby. I had originally ordered it thinking I would pair it with a midi skirt, but I didn’t love the way it looked with any of mine. I’m also on a jeans binge at the moment, as I’m trying not to stand out too terribly much in my new city (which is on the casual side).

Oh, and even though the photo on Shein’s site clearly shows (and so do its measurements), that this blouse is short…I was, for some reason, shocked how short it was on me. Whoops! I tried to pair it with a cami (in the bottom photo above) but it just didn’t work. It looked weird and the blouse just looked too bulky. So, I said to heck with it and showed a little skin!

Also, I’m going to be perfectly honest, I changed out of these heels and left my bag at home once I left the apartment. I have not mastered walking the rather broken streets around here yet, and I’m not sure I’m ready to try it out with a pair of heels that are open-toed just yet. And I’m not all that comfortable using a shoulder bag at the moment (because of theft). But, oh well, there will be other times to wear these things! And my Spanish lessons are going very well, I’m happy to report! I’ll have to start writing my posts in Spanish one of these days. Haha. πŸ˜‰

    I do love these fun sleeves, Lindsey! Because it adds so much flair to an otherwise normal shirt!
    And then there’s the realistic part of me that thinks when this trend goes away…I could possibly remove the ruffles and have a normal shirt???

    This blouse is gorgeous and right up my alley! It looks great on you! It would probably fit my perfect as I’m so short-waisted, but that is why I don’t like buying clothes online.

    Hi Lindsey,

    This top with ruffle sleeves is perfect. It look so sexy, chic and feminine on you. I love that you paired it with skinny jeans that enhance your silhouette. And the bag goes so well with it all. You look truly beautiful, dear friend!

    You can perhaps consider high waisted jeans/trousers/skirt? That’s what works for me when I buy crop tops. Although I wouldn’t worry about flashing a bit of flesh Lindsey, not with your body! I never actually check measurements when ordering things online and they are usually good but once I ended up buying a zipped sweatshirt with dramatically short sleeves (like an inch over my wrists). It was only once though πŸ™‚

      Very true! I didn’t love the way it looked with any of my skirts – but my high-waisted jeans would certainly work. I was just trying to break it up this time around for outfits. πŸ™‚ You’re a brave lady for never checking measurements! Haha. πŸ˜‰

    You look so pretty in these dramatic ruffle sleeves. You can wear a tan, black, or plain white tank top and tuck it into your pants. That may work. I have bought shoes that fit in varying ways online. Shoe sizing seems to vary a lot with each brand.
