Summer is here and though it is definitely a weird one, it doesn’t mean that we’re skipping my favorite season! I love summer for so many reasons including the beach, summer runs, outdoor dining, and just that glorious feeling of sun on your skin.
Shopping for my favorite season looked a little different this year though. I have mainly been buying pieces that feel more evergreen and will last me for a few seasons. That said, when the puff sleeve returned this season, I could not help myself! I LOVE a full sleeve or any sort of drama and wanted to add some fun to my wardrobe.
There are two trends that I keep seeing on repeat that I personally love and have loved for years, puff sleeves and smocking. There are so many ways to translate these details! But, as it’s summer, they are so perfect for a summer dress or matching separates!
This dress I picked up at H&M (similar here) paired perfectly with my new Bottega bag (birthday gift from my husband) and nude pointed toe mules from Ann Taylor. I loved this dress because it blended the two trends together so well with a puff sleeve and smocking throughout the entire bodice all the way to the low hip.

This is just one way to translate the trend though! I pulled together a few of my favorite pieces for summer in all price ranges to rock this summer and into the fall.

I would love to hear from you all! Are you into the puff sleeve and smocking trend? What are you loving for summer?
