I'm a huge fan of stripes. If you took a peek into my closet, you'd find striped shirts, striped shorts, and even striped shoes. But when I spotted this J. Crew bell sleeve shirt last week, I had to have it. If you read my post about capsule closets (here) and want to know if this means I've abandoned that project, the answer is: not exactly.

When I edited my closet at the end of last year, it gave me the opportunity to really focus & figure out my style based on what things I wanted to keep and also which items were consistently worn over and over. One things was for sure: no more trends, no more impulse purchases. Even with that in mind, I wasn't able to stick with a strict capsule wardrobe but now I only add a new item to my closet if it fits my style & if I can think of at least 5 ways to pair it with items I already own. This shirt satisfied both requirements.

The bell sleeves on the shirt were what got me. I'm always on the hunt for classic items with a unique feminine detail and if it's versatile enough for work & weekends, then I'm sold.

So if you're on the hunt for a great classic shirt that's just a bit more special then check out this J.Crew bell sleeve shirt. I also love it in the dress version but they didn't have it in stores when I was there. The black version with white stripes is equally cute. I can already picture it with black pants and royal blue details or with white jeans and a trench

Enough shopping talk, I'll leave you with this happy, colorful photo since it's Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend and don't forget to check back on Monday for a new post!
