Rock the BELLS...

Does anyone remember the L.L. Cool J. Song from the 80's

Hey Family.
I hope this post finds you all well. So looking at todays post it reminded Me of the love/hate affair I've had with the bell sleeve.

We attended a recent event with my oldest neice. Her sorority was hosting a gala fund raising luncheon event. Her sorority is amazing and we wanted to honor thr colors which were blue and white. I love shopping on line and recently found this top.

It is a short mesh tiered bell sleeve. Dont you just love the drama of it all? I was able toeat linch take care of Zi'Joy and move about my day and the sleeve was beautiful in action. Not a drop of food on it. It was really an affordable $19 for the top and my headwrap was a simple. Strech jersey fabric. My jeans were a denim harem piece. I love them. Slip on denim shoes completed my look.

Zi'Joy is also wearing a bell sleeve although hers is longer. I love this outfit sadly we are passing hers along as sh recently outgrew this thrifted find plus her white old school walking shoes . We just went to see the movie black panther and although she cannot do the arms across chest for Wakanda. I did tach her another solidarity movement and my neice captured the moment.

As alway leave a comment orjust say hello. Be well on your stylish journey.

    Beautiful! I like your top very much and Zion Joy's headpiece recalls the flowers on it! Very well matched Mama-and-Baby.

    Your new top is perfect! And Zi'Joy is so lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing women, starting with her mom!

    I'm happy that you and Z'Joy are out having adventures. You both did your niece proud. I love your head wrap with your bell sleeve wrap. Zion'J's solidarity gesture complete with power expression is beyond cute.

    So FAB!!! That print in your top is really great, and of course your best and most stylish accessory is your baby girl!

    Beautiful bell sleeves and beautiful Mama & daughter. You rock, Ledonna!

    Awe thank you everyone. This top is trurnimg into my favorite one especially because I can have freedom of movement in meaning I can eat without having my whole sleeve and food source you. I don't even think about the tie-in with the bowl of my daughter's hair into my top. I don't mean to be matchy-matchy all the time but it always seems to come out that way.

    Love the mother- daughter looks- great color for both of you.
    Pic #3 should be framed and hung on the wall. Great!

    OMG! Two absolutely fabulous coordinated looks. I wore mom clothes and my boys were in sweats.

    Wow, you look beautiful in your bell-sleeved top and jeans, Ledonna. And with your adorable daughter in her color-coordinated outfit--the two of you are so chic and pretty. Love that expression Zi'Joy's face in 3--she definitely looks like her mama.

    Glorious as usual, I'm especially loving your head wrap and the little beauty's face in 3.

    You and your little one are always a joy to see. I love how you are in matching outfits and her expression is the cutest.

  • Bijou replied 1 month ago

    This is so great that you now have Zi'Joy to dress up as well - we now get a double treat of gorgeousness. I love how cute she looks in the last photo - totally Sasha Fierce!

  • Elizabeth P replied 1 month ago

    You two are too much.  And I mean that in the best way.
    Love the matching hairpiece/blouse!

  • Suz replied 1 month ago

    I just love Zi'Joy's expression in #3. You are beautifully coordinated as mother/ daughter! 

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 month ago

    Thankyou all so much it really is vreat gettingng her dressed. I pick her fit 1st then my own.

    I try to give her a diverse range of things to wera and baby/toddler clothing has come a long way.

    Cindysmith thank you for remembering. I had to play the video on youtube to get it out my head lol.

    Zi'Joy has been teying hard not to smile lately making that face often. I really love the differing expressions that babies make.

    I cannot wait to see how her style evolves. Maybe it will be justjeans and tshirts maybe something more. Whatever it will be i will support her.

    I remember when my daughter let me choose her clothes.  My mother, bless her, had a Gymboree Visa and used it liberally to make my DD look special!  At 16, she is still lovely, but I have to share my clothing budget, and she chooses her own looks (very wisely, I think).

    You are both vibrant and gorgeous!  thanks for sharing your good luck with the bell sleeve and your day out with ZiJoy!
