Pump Up the Volume

Happy Monday babes!

I will most likely say this every time I blog on a Monday, but holy cow did the weekend fly by! These days the biggest thing I look forward to when heading into the work week is what I’m going to wear. Anybody else out there feel the same?! Don’t get me wrong, the organizational satisfaction I get from Excel spreadsheets is nice and all but it’s not necessarily something I look forward to on a Sunday night.

Now I’m sure you’ve all seen the “volume trend” as I like to call it. Whether it’s puffy arms, over-sized ruffles or massive bell sleeves, it seems like lately the more voluminous the better! I personally love this in your face trend, but full disclosure I have to be strategic about how I style it. Because I am not a size zero (maybe someday if I could give up wine and cheese and happiness…), sometimes if styled poorly these larger than life statement pieces can just leave me looking larger than life instead.

My favorite way to style a voluminous top is with a fitted pencil skirt like I’ve done here (PS this top is on sale at Nordy!). It’s perfect for work with short block heels or even flats. I’ll also pair a top like this with a pair of skinny jeans and pointed toed pumps to accentuate leg length and keep me from looking frumpy.

Shop this look below and stay tuned because I’ll be back with more voluminous looks comin’ at ya!
