Bell Sleeves & Fall Colors

September 25, 2017






Happy Monday everyone! Since this is the first Monday of fall, I wanted to share my favorite fall wear-to-work look of the moment. Fall fashion is always my favorite because I love the rich jewel tone colors and am always drawn to all the different fabric textures (like the faux fur of this leopard print clutch!)

While I love everything about this fall office outfit; the real stand-out piece is the bell sleeved button down shirt. I just cannot get enough of these sleeves! The accordion bell sleeve shape reminds me of 1920’s bankers & lawyers. It’s a “power shirt” to say the least! I wanted to pair the dramatic shirt with a fall skirt, and this wine / burgundy pencil skirt was the perfect match.

The quality of this skirt really impressed me, as often affordable pencil skirts are a super thin knit which is neither flattering nor particularly office appropriate. This skirt is definitely not that; it is a thicker, heavier spandex type material that is ah-mazing. It holds everything in and doesn’t show any lines (of your tucked in shirt, etc.) I highly recommend it!

To accessorize this skirt and shirt combo, I wanted to add one more stand out piece so I went with a leopard print clutch. Leopard print and red is a classic combo, but I have always been more partial to leopard print and burgundy. Especially for fall, this combination can’t be beat!

Finally I went with my most comfortable work heels since this is the ultimate busy, running-around- an-office fall outfit. If you don’t know about these comfortable heels, be sure to check out my guide to comfortable heels for work where I’ve talked more about them (and others).

I am back at it today with my busy work schedule. If you follow me on instagram, you’ll know that i am in the middle of a 6 week trial, so life is pretty busy at the moment. It’s great though- and I love the work I am getting to do!

I hope you all have an excellent work day (and whole work week of course haha). Come back tomorrow for a new blog post!! Throughout the fall I have so many looks I want to share with you guys that I will, for the most part, be posting 4x a week instead of 3; meaning I will be adding in a Tuesday post!
