Summer style trend: bell sleeve tops

Top: LC Lauren Conrad // Shorts: LC Lauren Conrad // Necklace: SugarFix // Shoes: UGG

Happy Monday loves! Summer has been full of trends. One of them is the return of bell sleeves. I love how romantic and flowy these pieces are. The best part about bell sleeve tops is that they are great transitional pieces to use from summer to fall. I love this top from LC Lauren Conrad because it is so light. Even with the heat outside, it doesn’t stick to my body the way cotton does.

Have you had a chance to try this trend? Feel free to leave me a comment below.

      Oh no! I did that with an off the shoulder top a few weeks ago. I’m sorry that happened to your shirt! Hopefully you found something similar. xx
