Bell Sleeves with a Twist, Ft. MakeMeChic

I think we can all agree that it's safe to say that the bell sleeve trend has been a hit this year. 2016 may have been a rough one (okay, that's the understatement of the century..), but at least we got a few solid fashion trends to hold on to out of the whole thing. Velvet everything, OTK boots (okay those are kind of timeless but 2016 was a real break out year for them), faux fur, bomber jackets, CHOKERS, and bell name a few. Take that, Trump. You can't take our fashion! 

In all seriousness though, I was hesitant to jump on the bell sleeve trend train until recently. Cute as they are, having the same blouse as every other blogger/girl in the country is just not something I like to make a habit of. 

Aaaaand theeeen..... MakeMeChic reached out to me to collab with them, and I found this amazingly perfect blouse with not just your standard bell sleeves, but layered bell sleeves. One might even call them trumpet sleeves. In fact, that is what I shall call them. I shall call them trumpets and they shall be my friend.

MakeMeChic has a TON of great on-trend pieces, and they're all super affordable. Definitely making it into my top 10 online boutique list from now on! 

For this look, I paired the blouse with a velvet skater mini skirt by Asos and some OTK boots for a flirty and fun vibe with a little bit of edge. And, of course, my go-to bag by The 5th (check out my post talking all about their amazing brand here)! It would also look great with some high waisted shorts or jeans and some cute heels in some warmer temps. Talk about versatility!
