Beyond the Bell Curve

This sweatshirt, friends. THIS. SWEATSHIRT. I can’t recall a time that a black sweatshirt triggered such feelings of joy and intrigue than when I borrowed (did not steal) my sister’s black NKOTB sweatshirt from her drawer. This bell-sleeved, cropped sweatshirt from Levi’s is about a hundred times softer and must less previously owned (as in, not at all) than my sister’s sweatshirt. It conjures up effortless magic! We kept this look overall in a neutral & monochromatic pallet to help fully embody the magic elements of the sweatshirt. My heart actually skipped a beat as I imagined styling this piece under a pair of overalls and sneakers, so let me just take a deep breath here. The midi-length skirt pairs sweetly with this stripped mules from Intentionally Blank. If a mule is a shape that you love (and we’re betting you do!) be sure to give this new shape a try. It has a round toe and doesn’t come up as high on the sides as most mules, giving an overall softer look. It’s got the tiniest heal which is perfect for any event. So whether you’re “hangin’ tough” (had to bring the NKOTB reference back around) or laying low, we love everything about this look for you.
