I am so excited about the star of today’s post… this blue and white bell-sleeved top! Not just because it’s completely darling in every way (and make no mistake, it is completely darling in every way) but because the price point is incredible. Just $23!

Like I said in this post from last week, blue and white is everywhere this season. I love the combination here in pinstripes and lovely crochet detailing. I got this in the mail last week and have already worn it 3 times!

I used to love shopping at Forever21 (I think the thrill of the hunt was what got me) but now that there isn’t an actual store near me, I’ve found I’ve kinda forgotten about it. That was until last week, when a random online ad led me to the site. I’ve said this before, but shopping online at Forever21 is a game changer. Not only can you actually return the items for a full refund (instead of that frustrating store credit) but you can scroll through the tons of options without having to elbow your way through clothing racks and frenzied shoppers! Definitely a great option for low priced, trendy pieces.

And heads up… I am planning on making a haul video of my order soon, so stay tuned! :)

Love from Texas,

  1. That top is the cutest ever! I love the lace detail through the middle and the price makes it even better! I think shopping Forever 21 online is way better than in the store haha!
