Bell Sleeves

You guys. Bell sleeves. They’re so cute, but I feel like they’ve been overshadowed by the return of ’90s fashion staples like velvet and chokers. Which is super sad. Because who doesn’t want a fun ruffle on their sleeve? And if the sleeves are cropped, like they are in this top, the extra fabric doesn’t even get in the way. Win-win.

This photo shoot was especially fun for me because Matt and I had a beautiful, wonderful role reversal. I, the perennially cold human ice cube, was in a long sleeve shirt and ankle pants (as you can see). Meanwhile, Matt, whose college dorm room would’ve been very comfortable for penguins, was in a winter coat, scarf, and gloves. Oh how the turn tables.

But in reality, I did have my winter coat waiting on the sidelines. And this was probably the last time I’ll be able to wear this shirt without any type of coat, which means that the adorable sleeves will be covered. So for the next few months, the textured fabric and the dolphin hem will get the spotlight. Again, win-win. This shirt is really the whole package.
