Blouses and Shells for Fall

links + small things

Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one who isn’t a huge fan of the enormously exaggerated shoulders/arms in blouses these days. I put a poll up on Instagram stories recently and the vast majority of you agreed that they weren’t your favorite trend.

I can see how they look beautiful on so many, but they just aren’t really in line with how I feel comfortable dressing.

So, I did some searching and found a handful of pretty blouses (to wear now and later!) that don’t have overly puffy sleeves( like this )!

One.     Two.     Three.     Four.     Five.     Six (Similar).     Seven.     Eight.     Nine.     Ten.     Eleven.

The retailers I look to when I need a slightly dressier blouse is Banana Republic, Loft, H&M, or Target. Loft always seems to have a handful of beautiful shells to wear alone in the summer months, that also work perfectly under a blazer or sweater because they are sleeveless!

What is the white top that you’re wearing in the first photo? I really like it.

Where is the original blouse #6 from? I’d like to look for it on Poshmark or eBay.

Hannah, it’s from Old Navy! It’s very comfortable and light. I love it!

Thanks so much, Elaine! 🙂 That’s great to know that it’s comfortable, too!
