Of Bell Sleeves And Bucket Bags

Bell Sleeve Top from Banana Republic; Furla Stacy Bucket Bag

Summer is passing by so fast and, before it’s over, I want to share a few of my favorite fashion trends. In this post, I’m combining bell sleeves and bucket bags, because, well, time.

Bell sleeves are making a comeback. I remember bell sleeves being big more than ten years ago. I had a super stylish blazer that I hope I haven’t given away – you may see it in an upcoming post! And, I’m seeing more bell sleeve jackets on websites for the fall.

This top works for me because it’s petite. It’s hard to get the right length on the bell sleeves if you’re short and I find that the sleeve length is key in getting an outfit to look proportional. I love the light blue color and the oxford fabric, which gives the top some weight and shape. I’ve paired it with white jeans because that’s mainly all I wear in the summer.

This one, from Furla, is always in their lineup in various color combinations. I like this bucket bag because it’s a good size for my frame, and it’s easy to wear as a cross-body or can be carried with just the short strap. It’s also a lightweight leather. I love how this neutral colored bucket bag goes with white, blue, and navy colors.

    1. Thank you so much, Lisa! I was so happy to find this petite top in my size because bell sleeves can be a bit much, but it was perfect. So glad you liked it! Mary
