You seriously can’t be in a bad mood when you’re wearing sleeves like this. They make you want to smile and dance … and maybe shake some maracas!
I needed a little lift in spirits this week. I have the flu. And NYFW is going on right now without me. But I am having a ball watching live streams of the show, which is something I couldn’t be doing if I was at work, so …. I guess it all works out in a way, right?
This ruffle sleeve sweater from Shein is so fun maybe I’ll get it in another color too. They have pink and red, perfect for Valentine’s Day!

ahhhh…what a bummer you’re sick, Dawn!! I hope you get well soon!
I was just thinking about trying to DIY some sleeves like this—they are so fun!!
Can’t wait to see what you come up with, Jodie! 🙂
Oh, the flu… I’ve been having that for a week, finally starting to feel myself… get well soon!
Oh, the sleeves are fun and fabulous,
I”m finally feeling better too. Yay for us, Tiina! oxox
Oh Dawn, we are both ill together! I have the same and it’s awful. Hope you have a speedy recovery. Oh and PS I hope you can join me for my first link up. x
I will join you for sure! When is it? Are you sending email reminders! I’m in!
Oh, no! The flu is the worst. Seeing you in these sleeves is certainly fun, though. I recently wore a dress from Shein with the same sleeves and loved it. So funny, when I first pulled it out I thought of shaking maracas, too! Feel better soon, sweet lady.
Haha … we could start our own band! ;P
I am so sorry to hear you’ve gotten the darn flu bug!!! I’ll brighten your day by saying this is now one of my favorite looks on you!!! The ruffles, the sass, the leopard, the smokin’ hot jeans. You seriously look like you’re in your 20’s!! Get well my pretty love, HUGS!!!! xo
You brightened my day totally, Andrea!!! 😀
First of all LOVE this outfit–those sleeves are amazing!! Second, I was VERY surprised to see my photo here.

You are looking amazing in this outfit Dawn Lucy!! Love those fun sleeves! Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks so much, Marta!
I’d rock this sweater in a heartbeat, dearest Dawn – those ruffled sleeves are A.May.Zing!! 😀 So sorry to hear that you and your hubby have been “under the weather” this week…Robin and I have been, too; but in a much more literal way; we’ve had nothing but snow, snow, and more snow here in Vancouver lately!! Yuck!! Fingers crossed that things shape up for all of us in time for the weekend!! XOXO
Let’s hope for better weather for you soon, Dear! You would look amazing in this sweater!! OXOX
Happy Friday! Sorry to hear you are sick and missing NYFW 🙁 And besides it’s snowing in New York. But you look fabulous in that top! The ruffle detail is so much. Have a great weekend!
Even in the cold and snow, I’d rather be there! Thanks, Jackie! oxox
What a fun sweater! The ruffle sleeves are gorgeous! Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!
Aww thanks so much, Katie!
This is a super fun sweater Dawn! Rest up and feel better friend…

That sweater is made for you! I’d get another colour too. Hopefully you’ll be feeling better and shaking your maracas in no time! xx
Aww thanks so much, Lisa! 🙂
Super – I keep seeing this style of blouse and NEED one! Jacqui

Doesn’t it seem like such a waste of time? Thanks, Pam! oxox
I’m obsessed with this look! I love the sleeves on that fabulous top! I hope you are feeling better soon!
Doused In Pink
Thanks Jill! oxox
Love this look. I have the flu too! It’s awful!
Nothing quite as UN-glamorous as the flu, right?!
I am loving that fabulous statement top! Hope you feel better soon!
I am such a huge fan of flutter, bell, ruffles – so I give my 2 thumbs up for this top!!!!
I’m back at blogging as a brand ambassador of Los Angeles-based indie brand Team Baciano – come check out this fab piece I am wearing from their collection!!!
I’ll stop by. Thanks!
I love this sweater on you Dawn! Fab sleeves and the jeans look great with it! Hope you feel better soon. No fun in being sick!
Make some tea and rest!
So fluttering I mean flattering on you! LauriePOP2
Ha …. well, both!! 😀
Dawn hope you are feeling better soon. Flu stinks! I’m so sorry. That and the bad weather -ugh. Hopefully sunny days soon. At least you can stay cozy and I hope stay home. Love this top and I’m crazy for bell sleeves now. Your hair is cute like that too! Hopefully you have a restful weekend! I shared your hem tip on my blog about new jeans I bought today!Love it! xo Kim
Thanks for sharing my link! Loving your new shoes and jeans, Dear! oxox
Obsessed with this too and this trend right now. Love how you didn’t make a fuss with it, it’s styled simply with jeans and flats (leopards a neutral right?! Lol). Perfect weekend look, very editor on a casual Friday chic.
Enjoy your weekend xo
Leopards are totally neutrals! Thanks for the compliment … means even more coming from a chic chick like you! oxox
Hope you feel better soon, friend. I love big sleeves, oversized sleeves, bell sleeves and such. If I can describe that black top in a few names, the title of your blog suits it perfectly. This is such a Dawn Lucy outfit and I mean it as a compliment!
I hope you join my Thursday Moda linkup which goes live every Thursday. Come share your awesome style with me and my readers. Thanks and enjoy the weekend! Ada. =)
Hee! That’s such a sweet comment! Thanks so much, Ada! 😀
I am loving the sleeves! Such a great outfit!
OMG I love those sleeves Dawn Lucy. And the shoes as well as your hair. You look fantastic. Thanks for hosting. xo Sabina
I love your top, because so many of these statement sleeved tops are full length which in my opinion gets in the way, this is a much more stylish and practical length. You look fab! Yvadney x #SaturdayShareLinkUp
Love your sweater!!
Oh lady…..the flu bug has been going around here too! I hope you are better. You sure look precious in this top!
Yuck the flu. Hope you feel better really soon! That top is really cute and I love the ruffles so much!
Love this casual look. Your sleeve detail and pop of leopard are perfect!
