remember when statement necklaces were all the rage? i’ll be the first to admit that i embraced that trend aggressively and actually just donated most of my collection since i have plenty of natalie borton creations to keep me accessorized these days.
while i’m no longer rocking statement necklaces, i do still enjoy making a statement with my outfit. nowadays that means wearing a standout garment like a statement skirt, or in today’s case, with a statement sleeve.
i spotted this top on nordstrom’s website a few weeks ago and immediately put it on my birthday wishlist. when it arrived, it was actually even cuter in person. since the eyelet trend is alive and well, i knew it would be perfect for summer -for both work (paired with these trousers) and the weekend (paired with these shorts). it’s also available in black, but i think the crisp white will be perfect to pair with denim, gingham, and anything blue and white striped.
speaking of striped, as mentioned last week, i just snagged these striped espadrilles and i’m obsessed. i cannot wait to wear them all summer long. how cute will they be with this denim dress i just treated myself to (at 25% off!) from j.crew?
