Bell Sleeves + Life Update

Here I am with yet another sore throat and head cold. Why do I seem to get this at least once a month? DayQuil should seriously consider sponsoring me, or at the very least giving me a life time supply.

For the last 5.5 months my oldest, Brix has been wanting a kitten so hard. For his birthday back in June, that was the only item on his wish list. My husband got him a robotic cat for his gift instead (thinking this whole cat thing was just a phase) and he freaking loves that thing. That robot cat gets read to, sits atop the fluffiest pillow, carried around everywhere we go, and sleeps with him at night!

Brix has been praying up a storm for a cat-consistently! As of late he started to wonder why his prayers weren’t being heard, and why Jesus wasn’t magically having a baby kitten appear before when he said ‘amen’.

To keep his faith up, we decided we should probably get him a kitten. Plus, he really loves that robot cat a little too much for something powered by batteries.

Brix was so so happy when we told him he got to go pick out a kitten! He even put on his fav shirt (Minecraft duh). The only major bummer was that we discovered he was super allergic to cats! It was so sad 🙁

But no worries, to cheer him up we did what all sane parents would do-we got him a puppy! He named him Chewie (after some Star Wars thing), and he is the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet.

Yep, I am that crazy lady who has three fur babies that I push around in a stroller. I have come to terms with it.

Onto a trend I can’t seem to stay away from! Bell sleeves! This Pleione Ruffle Bell Sleeve Top comes in four colors, and has a ribbon tie in the back making it even cuter. I am wearing the french mauve (blush) color, but am totally eyeing the wine color for the upcoming holiday season. Don’t want to commit to long sleeves? Here is a super cute short sleeve version of my top-tie back and all!

I paired this top with my favorite 7 For All Mankind b(air) Ankle Skinny Jeans in black. This denim is so lightweight, and buttery soft! I’ve been replacing all my jeans with the new b(air) denim. This pair is currently on sale too!

You all have already seen my beloved Rebecca Minkoff Annette Ankle Boots! I literally slip them on multiple times a week. The bestest news is that they are ON SALE for 40% off!  They also come in black leather, and a sand suede sand color.

Because of my huge crush on bell sleeves, I have rounded up my current favorites below. I need them all! Plus, a most of them are a fab price
