Hi there mamas. One trend this year that I’m loving is the asymmetrical long-sleeved dress. Long dresses are a particular favorite of mine. An infrequent tanner, I love the fact that they cover my pale legs. They’re cool and comfortable and protect you from getting too much sun. They’re also great for travel or long days with the kids in the city or elsewhere. In addition to long dresses, I’ve also come to love summer dresses with sleeves because if they’re made of a light-enough fabric, they stay cool enough and are great for chilly, air conditioned environments!
This summer I fell in love with the brand Maje in Barcelona. Barcelona has a huge shopping complex called Corté Inglès which has incredible sales beginning at the end of June each year. I walked by the Maje storefront and didn’t leave for about an hour. I left with this asymmetrical long sleeve dress in a lightweight, printed fabric and the cropped jean jacket you see below.

The dress offers a gathered waistline and fitted sleeves that you can push up or leave down.
I tried it the dress on with some white sneakers but you could easily dress it up with camel-colored heels or any type of sandal. You could also carry this dress into fall by throwing on a jacket (such as the one below) and trying on some flats like ballet slippers or even boots.
The cropped jean jacket is also in vogue this year, and this one features a pretty, rhinestone bow for a little dash of flash! This jacket goes great over dresses, long blouses, or you could pair it with a tank top and leggings. I’ve been looking for a flexible, jean jacket like this for quite a while and was thrilled to grab this one up.

SO, that’s it for a cute little outfit from Barcelona. Another thing I love about this outfit is how great it could look on any age woman. I’m getting to the point where I have to think about these things (wink!).
Thanks so much for reading!
