Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you all had a great long weekend! The weather was simply beautiful here in Chicago this weekend. And, the extra day of relaxation was just what Shawn and I needed to get back to zero. We slept in longer than normal, did a little cleaning and a bit of Fall organizing. Sounds exciting, right?
I mentioned in last week’s post, All Black Everything, that 9 times out of 10 I gravitate towards lots of color. Shocking if you’ve been following along for some time, right? But this year I have really started to see and feel a slight shift in my style preference. While I still love color (a lot), I have been equally getting comfortable with Falls latest trends and shades. I have been gravitating a lot towards rich hunter greens and maroon particularly. Plus, it helps that I finally found a leather jacket I am IN. LOVE. WITH. I could honestly wear it with everything, y’all!
I bought the jacket during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. And, while it was a bit more pricey than I would normally spend, I have already gotten my moneys worth out of it’s wear. It’s the perfect jacket to help transition your Summer looks into Fall. I’ve worn it with shorts, a white lace dress (which will be on the blog later this week) and denim skirts.
Beyond a great leather moto jacket, one of my other favorite Fall trends is the bell sleeve top. I have been searching for the perfect top for the last few weeks. but had been struggling to find one that would also be an appropriate length in the sleeve itself. Most of the bell sleeve tops I fell in love with were incredibly long. I also wanted to find a bell sleeve top I could also dress up a bit and/or wear to the office. During an evening online shopping trip, I was really pleased to find this blouse – also in petites. It was almost meant to be.
I was initially concerned the color would wash me out, but I loved it when it arrived. It has small black dots through out the material and has a nice breathable material. It does wrinkle easily though, so beware. I was even more pleased to find this adorable lace bell sleeve top and blouse. The blouse is another I could wear to the office, during date night AND I love the longer length.
What are your thoughts on the bell sleeve top trend? I’d love to hear if you’ve found any you love!
Hope you all have a great start to the week!
