TREND BENDER COLLAB
A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to receive the sweetest package from Trend Bender- a new up and coming small business located on Insta! They sent me three tops perfect for the transition from Summer to Fall. Being the back to school era, I always am in the mood for sweaters and boots. BUT- with Arkansas weather, back to school time calls for something much cooler to wear. That is why I have loved these little tops to throw into my wardrobe at this fun season of life. From running around doing Sunday errands with friends, to brunch, to class- Trend Bender pieces really are so versatile— check out their brand new website HERE!
I received the Soft Terry Pullover Top ($28), the Striped Band Detail Short Sleeve (only $12!!), and the Crinkle Gauzed Ruffled Top ($16). All pictured below in their own, unique outfits. These prices are too good to pass up on these interchangable in-between season pieces!
I paired the Striped Short Sleeve with this under $25 statement denim wrap dress from none other than Forever 21 (linked HERE). I’m a sucker for layers, especially wrap/slip dresses, and this green and red combo went perfectly with the dark wash denim. I dressed this up with a little jewelry and White UGG Platform Sandals — PS the comfiest shoes that look hold up rain or shine :).
Not sure why, but I am a big fan of monochromatic outfits. Just call me Monochromatic Maggie ;) I paired the Crinkle Gauzed Ruffle Top with Vintage yellow shorts my mom wore in the when she was my age. I felt the bright yellow matched well with the subdued pale yellow of the shorts, providing a contrast. Also, the top is cropped so the high waisted helped accommodate the print.
