White Bell Sleeve Cardigan and a Pop of Orange

I’m feeling the same joy as when peplum made its debut on the fashion scene–bell sleeves are so feminine and I’ve bought several tops this summer including this lovely white cardigan.

Shopping malls and restaurants always have air-conditioning, so it’s a perfect summer cardigan. Evenings can get cool, especially now that it’s September.

I’ve added a pop of orange, a top I bought several years ago and I always wear it with white. I never wore orange before I started blogging, but since then I’ve got quite a few things in various shades from peachy-pink, salmon and coral to vibrant tangerine, pumpkin and burnt orange.

My collection started when I saw this bell-sleeve dress at Jean’s eco boutique DRIZZLE and SHINE.

Have a lovely Labour Day weekend!

Happy September dear friends!

  6. Hi Carmen, this top is so cute for fall! It is very flattering on you with the white pants . You carefully accessorised to it too, I like the jewellery selection a lot. I love the cardigan, bell sleeves are so nice on a cardigan don’t you think? I love your photo in a photo! Is that an app you use to do it? I thought it was a great surprise when I clicked the photo! (not giving away for anyone else!) Do you have Labor weekend too? Take care, hugs, Terri xo.

      Thank you very much Terri! I do love the bell sleeves and it’s a nice transitional piece. I’ve worn it this summer several times and it will be fine for early autumn. I found the photo frames online, I’ve had quite a bit of fun with them over the past couple of years on various sites. Glad you like my little surprise! Thanks for checking it out. Yes, we also have Labour Day 🇨🇦 but we spell it differently than American folks! 🇺🇸 Canada has more of a British influence. 🇬🇧



  7. Always stylish and elegant. The pop of orange accentuated the outfit perfectly.
    Happy weekend Carmen

    I feel the same way about the bell sleeves. And the length of these is perfect, so they don’t get in the way!!

      Today is the first day of autumn calculated with the meteorological seasons. 😦

      However, it’s still summer until September 23 (according to the astronomical system, autumnal equinox). 🙂

      I choose the latter so I can enjoy 23 more days of summer! 😉
