Happy Second Day of Summer, y'all! ☀️✨

It's *literally* heating up in Austin, TX already and I've found the perfect blouse for fluttering away the fuego temperatures in style this season. The Flouncy Top is taking the summer style game by storm and you need at least one in your closet RN.

Adding this on-trend style to your fashion arsenal for the summer is v necessary. To get you right, I did a little digging and found the ultimate online destination for all the flouncy tops with bomb sleeve detail. AKIRA is quickly becoming my favorite place to find just about anything. From flirty tops to icy athleisure wear, you'll find the perfect piece to complete whatever look your fashionable heart desires.

HOW TO SLAY W/ SLEEVES
Twirl into any summer occasion with these style tips:

  1. Breezy does it. Make sure to look for flouncy tops with a boxier silhouette. Tops with dreamy and dramatic sleeve details should always encourage movement when you rock them– so embrace the breeze. 🌬
  2. Go bold.💥 Everything about a fab flouncy top says drama, so don't hold back on picking one in a bright color or pairing your top with fun accessories that pop.
  3. Switch it up. Just because your top is extra in the best way, doesn't mean the rest of your 'fit absolutely has to be. Flex your flouncy top's versatility by adding denim for a casually cute look or add a curve-hugging skirt for a date night-approved vibe.

Before I go, I have to give AKIRA one last shoutout. On top of the site being a bomb blouse plug, I got the jeans featured in these shots at the exact same place. As a former retail employee and self-proclaimed jean snob, these skinnies pass the test for girls with choosy taste in denim. Although I'm on the petite side of thangs, I still struggle with jeans not fitting my thighs or my other assets. I can definitively say that these lil babies got the right amount of stretch for the 🎂.
