You guys, this bell sleeve sweater was on my wish list for months and I finally pulled the trigger back in December, and since picking it up from the post office last month, I’m in love. Bonus, because it’s on sale now!
I think the bell sleeve trend is only going to continue into the warmer months, and I could see myself pairing this with some denim cut offs, if we ever make it Spring. That said, for now, it’s perfect on it’s own or with a cami layered underneath. The v is pretty deep, so I like the extra coverage the lace adds. I sized down and went with a small, as I find Free People tends to run a little big.
I’m going to be super honest: I’m not crazy about these pants. I snagged them on sale on the Rag & Bone site, thinking they were the stretchy denim version, but they are more of a soft cotton denim (rayon/cotton blend). After wearing them for under an hour, they were super stretched out and I find myself tossing them into the dryer after every wear to get them to shrink back to size.
Womp womp. What a waste–even though I got them on sale for $100.
Ultimately, it was always these ones I wanted, I just thought mine were the same and so I scooped them up when I saw the sale. I’m planning to bite the bullet on another pair, but am waiting a little for now.
