The Must-Have Spring Blouse

There are some clear trends this spring when it comes to shirts: off-the-shoulder, bell-sleeves, and tie-sleeves couldn't be hotter right now. Some people aren't crazy about off-the-shoulder tops because they can be somewhat uncomfortable, and bell-sleeves can be a bit too over-the-top for some. Of all three trends, the tie-sleeves is definitely the easiest to wear, which is why I wanted to share this particular style with you today.

I wanted to share with you where I got this particular tie-blouse, because let me tell you, it's not somewhere I ever would have gone looking for this shirt! I was recently at a shopping event for Coquitlam Centre hosted by some blogger friends Bree of The Urban Umbrella and Krystin Tysire of Girl in Betsy. They had curated some awesome capsule collections which were on display for everyone to peruse, featuring clothing and accessories found at stores in the Coquitlam Centre mall! There were quite a few cute items that caught my eye, including an adorable pink rain coat and my favourite Brunette the Label sweatshirts (I need the 'Blonde' sweatshirt in my life). Turns out, all those items just happened to be from Below the Belt! Do any of you remember Below the Belt?? I remember it being a popular store for teens back in the late 90's and early 2000's, but haven't really heard of it since then. I certainly never thought of them as a place to go for on-trend styles for a mid-20-something like me.

I ended up going to Below the Belt after the event, to check out the rest of what the store had, and that's when I found this sweet blouse with the ties! It even has a row of buttons down the back for extra detail. It pairs great with jeans for a more casual vibe like you'll see below, or you can dress it up for work with dress pants and pumps.

So the next time you're at the mall, and if there's a Below the Belt on the directory, give it a browse! They might just surprise you.

PS. I've been wearing these sunglasses for three weeks straight - aren't they cool?? I love that they're 100% mirrored, and the wire frame is pretty eye-catching. I've been seeing them all over Instagram since I got them. If you want your own pair of Double Crossbar Metal Pantos Aviator Sunglasses, you can use the code vogue20 for 20% off at Ilymix!
