Bell Sleeves & Chambray Shirt Layering

You wouldn't think we're in spring from the weather in the past few days. Milan has been gloomy and like previously mentioned, a flu/cold has been going around. Happy to let you know, I'm feeling better and despite the moody weather, have finally taken new outfit pictures. 

Now, the weather may be gloomy, but I'm not, so I wanted to add a pop of pastel with my chambray shirt. Since it was quite chilly outside, I layered a crochet bell sleeved blouse underneath the chambray shirt. The crochet and bell sleeves offer a summery vibe. For the lower half of the outfit, I opted for my trusty office trousers and dark green booties. Since the ankle boots are a quite dark shade, they are easy to style, even though they aren't a neutral color. 

My favorite thing about this outfit is that it's elegant while having personality, but it's also quite effortless. It incorporates trends and summery elements, but it's my style. The best part? It's all styled with pieces that were already in my wardrobe. I love styling old/staple pieces in a fresh and new way.

I was in a creative mood and tried a bohemian inspired hairstyle with this look. It's a mix of french and fish style braids with waves.  

What do you think?

Have a pink-tastic day!
