These Madewell jeans are technically not a bell-bottom design from the 70’s; they’re too tight around the thighs. Yet, paired with this Club Monaco bell sleeved top I had feelings of déjà vu. Change is inevitable and I try to welcome it. The many style options we enjoy today is one change I embrace whole-heartedly. In retrospect, we pretty much all dressed alike when we were growing up.
To complete this casual look I added Linea Paolo Crissy suede pumps (love them) and Francesca’s tassel earrings. Since I was feeling those retro vibes I grabbed my vintage Oroton bag. However, I refused to part my hair down the middle. If you saw me you would tell me to stop.
On a happy note this blouse is on sale for $99 and currently in all sizes. It versatile, soft, pretty and feminine – that’s a hard combination to beat.
I purchased these Madewell jeans immediately when my daughter called to tell me they were on sale for $19.95. Unfortunately this was several seasons ago. I love how Madewell jeans fit and check often for sales.
Up close and personal allows you to really see the design in the blouse. This would look fabulous with either a pencil or pleated skirt.
