Gingham Bow Top

Today I’m wearing the cutest gingham top gifted from Shein. If you love a peplum, bow, or gingham, this top has it all! I’ve always been a little hesitant on ordering from Shein because the prices seem too good to be true, but their selection is great for those trendy pieces you don’t want to invest in. They are feeding my closet with all my ruffle and bow needs right now! I recommend looking at the measurements and photos of other people wearing them and know you’ll have to steam or iron them when they come in. I would also recommend paying the extra $2 for “insurance” the first few times you order to get an idea on their sizing. For my first purchase, I didn’t read the measurements and ordered a size up because I was expecting everything to run small like sizes in H&M. That doesn’t seem to be the case.

 

For sizing reference, I’m usually a size 4-6 or small and I’m wearing a small top. Since this top is open in the back, you don’t have to be too careful looking at those measurements, but I would recommend measuring your arms because that’s the one area you may feel snug in if you order the wrong size. The top fits somewhat loose and boxy throughout the body, but the peplum detail keeps it flattering and feminine and I think the break up of gingham is a nice touch.

 

Also, the middle bow aligns perfectly with my bra strap, so no worries there if you don’t want to wear a tank underneath when it warms up for summer.

 

And no, I didn’t spend $2,000 for the popular Chloe Drew bag. This one a $30 dupe gifted from the same place! As a heads up, you just tie the metal chain in a knot to the handles. It took this blonde here a moment to figure that out 🙂 Next on my list are these bow slippers, a dupe for a $70 BP version and a $200+ Kate Spade version!

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.
