Floral Lace Smocked Hem Blouse

Floral Lace Smocked Hem Blouse

As we approach the start of the really cold winter weather, it’s easy to get in to the habit of wearing dark clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I love my black & grey attire as much as the next person, but every once in a while I like to wear something bright and cheery. It can be great to wear some bright colors just to brighten your mood and forget about the freezing temperatures outside.

I love this floral lace smocked hem blouse I got a few months ago. The blue, magenta, and yellowish green are a great color combo. The vertical lace trim is always a style detail that I like. The ruffled bell sleeves are a nice detail as well. The sleeves aren’t truly bell sleeves as they don’t really flare out (in fact the sleeves are fitted) until halfway between the elbow and wrist, but I couldn’t find the proper name. I Google’d a few different sleeve types such as trumpet sleeves and ruffled bell, but couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. No matter, the point is these delicate statement sleeves are so pretty!

I love this floral print and as stated earlier, I think the colors of the flowers and leaves on the navy blue look great together. The lace details at the shoulder are perfect and are a great style detail to the flowy blouse. The blouse is a little short , but the smocked hem keeps it from being a crop top. I have a tank top that went perfectly with the color of the flowers so that worked out amazingly as, like I said before, the top is a bit short so the tank top peaked out from underneath.

I paired the blouse with black cords and black ankle wrap shoes, my new favorite shoe! I love the metal heel. They were my top choice to finish off this outfit.

I hope you enjoyed this outfit. I know it definitely brightens my day!
