For Whom The Bell Sleeve Tolls

REitmans

Ah, bell sleeves. You couldn't turn around this summer without seeing them on cute printed shirt or dresses. Some where so big that I'm sure if a swift breeze blew they would inflate and carry their occupant away! Headed into fall I found the perfect size for everyday at my favourite Canadian women's retailer, Reitman's

These plaid pants have been my constant companion since I bought them. I took them to Scotland and wore them throughout the trip and I have to say, they were the perfect choice. We were in and out of airplanes, cars and taxis so it was nice to have the flexibility.

What I really love about the pants is that they are thick which is great for this time of year, but they are dressy enough for work and relaxed enough for cozy sweaters on the weekends. This shirt is light and breezy which surprisingly was great for this past weekend when it was 20 degrees out! I was a little worried about how to wear this shirt with the lace at the top (it is totally see through), I wore a flesh toned bra and you couldn't even tell! One of my pet peeves is bra straps poking out so I was so happy that I happened to have the perfect bra for just the occasion.

I just love the colour as well and know it will look great right through to Christmas. When the temperature finally does drop, I will be looking for a crisp white shirt to wear underneath. Of course, I will roll up the sleeves so that the bell sleeves still remain the star of the show! And for any holiday gatherings, I think this shirt tucked into a black pencil skirt will be perfect. And we all know the temperature will be dropping soon so this cute blush coat from Reitman's will be the perfect warm layer to add.

I felt that the shopping gods were smiling down on me when I picked out these pants and shirt because the next store I visited I found these flats that perfectly match the shirt! I'm still carrying my little blush purse I bought this summer. I love the look of blush and burgundy, it feels classic and modern at the same time. 
  1. The PERFECT fall colour - love burgundy.

  2. Your top and lipstick match so beautifully! I loved following your Scotland trip. And of course it was when I really got into Outlander on Starz, haha! Also these pants are perfection on you.
