Lately I am all about the statement sleeve and the wide sleeve tops. This goes from bell sleeves, to statement sleeves, to oversized sleeves. I love them all. These aren’t so meal friendly but thats why we roll up our sleeves to dig into a good meal right? When I saw this on the rack at Zara I was honestly uncertain. It looked HUGE, and insanely cropped. I wanted to take the chance, plus it was on sale. Can’t put too much of a fight on that one. I went for a color I normally wouldn’t go for. This does come in black and fuchsia. I have more black tops and clothes than I can count, nor am I a pink girl. On a rare occasion I will wear pink, just not with this top. It came in a sand, neutral color which I was curious to see how it would look against my fair skin tone.
Shopping for neutral colored tops can be hard when you have fair skin. You don’t want the top to match your skin tone too much or look like your completely naked. Maybe this is just a fear that I have of this color spectrum. Maybe its because my fair skin is still somewhat of an insecurity. What I won’t ever stop doing is pushing myself to get outside of my comfort zone and find the beauty in what I am insecure in. Embracing my fair skin tone has been a struggle, but I continue to push myself to try new styles. And this time. IT WORKED! I was so happy when I had put this sweater on. Although I look like I am drowning in it, I cannot begin to tell you how snuggly this sweater is! I understand why it is cropped since the sleeves are so.. HUGE. And such a fun look to wear! The only thing I regret is not having a lighter shade of shoes to wear with this (because I only own black shoes) Just another reason for me to go shopping for spring 😀 … I’ll link below other shoes I would wear with this style.
