I don't know what it is about black and white stripes but i find myself reaching for them more and more!  So when i spotted this top with the darling sheer bell sleeves i simply could not leave it behind!  Bell sleeves are a major Spring trend and i love that these are sweet yet not overwhelming as some can be.  They add just the right touch of whimsy and fun.  I love the versatility too... after all, you can dress it up with a pair of dressy slacks or a skirt or dress it down as i have here with a favorite pair of jeans!  In this case, i opted for a distressed pair because i felt that it balanced the outfit and made it more casual yet still dressy enough for a date night when combined with the right accessories.

I purchased this coat last year during Nordstrom's Anniversary sale and i love the color and style! I feel that it adds the perfect punch of color and contrast against the black and white stripes.  Besides, how chic does it look when you simply drape it on your shoulders?!  I'm not sure if you can truly tell how gorgeous this necklace is but it has a metal collar that slips on behind your neck leaving the necklace strand to drape down the front.... obsessed! The sunnies were also a great purchase because i'm loving mirrored lenses and the rose gold totally sold me.  Besides, it doesn't hurt that they only cost $12!  Oh and i also picked up these and these!  Lastly, i've had this Chanel bag for years but rarely pull it out of its dust bag... not sure why but i really need to wear it more often don't you think? Check out these great discounted options!

Hope you enjoyed another ootd post!  Can't wait to bring you more!  Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla
