Bell sleeves, polka dots, and pearls. These are a few of my favorite things! I must have brought back a little “prim and proper” inspiration with me back from London. This post includes a few trends of the moment (bell sleeves, mules), as well as several recent purchases.
Bell sleeves are still very in these days, and I have enjoyed seeing the different variations on bell sleeves- some are longer than others, some have more flare than others, etc. I was drawn to this jacket about a month ago (exactly to the day) at ZARA in London, as I loved the sleek unfussy lines, but the feminine yet structured bell sleeves. They reminded me of little flowers. (A few friends said this jacket reminded them of Melania Trump or Kate Middleton). This jacket effortlessly makes my entire outfit more sophisticated and polished. I paired this look with my favorite black skimmer pants, classic big black sunglasses, and a Rebecca Taylor silk polka dot blouse. I love how the polka dot bows peek through the front of the jacket. I completed this look with another trend of the moment…mules! I originally wasn’t crazy about Gucci’s horsebit slides, but I love anything with pearls on it, and these ones from Steve Madden are just so comfortable and easy to wear. The pearl detail on the shoes adds a feminine touch, just as the bell sleeves soften the sharp edges of the jacket. This outfit is work ready, and perfect for a chilly spring day like today!
