Oh Sunday!

#OOTD: Trying the Puff Sleeves Trend

- Outfit of the Day
OOTD - Puff Sleeve from TheModernMamanista.com

I’ve been lusting over all of the different dramatic-sleeve dresses and tops, but “trendy” and “dramatic” are not typically adjectives used to describe my style. However, when I eyed a puff-sleeve blouse on sale on The Find Auctions, I decided to take the plunge.
