Happy hump day friends!! We’re half way to the weekend and today I’m excited to share a fun look featuring an ultra feminine trend that you know this girl is all googly eyes over – ruffles. From sleeves to hems, this year in fashion has been all about pieces that have that little extra somethin’ somethin’ and this one shoulder ruffle top and denim combo has all the belles and whistles of my heart’s desires.
Given it’s Wednesday and we’re all a little impatient for the weekend, I’ll keep this post short and sweet. I’ve talked a lot about how much I embrace ultra girly trends here on the blog (evidence here and here), so it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of all the mega ruffles, flared and belled sleeves happening right now in the fashion world. Which is why this gingham one shoulder ruffle top immediately caught my eye. Sometimes the extra voluminous tops can weigh you down a bit but I absolutely love that this one has a form-fitting bustier fit that’s super flattering. I also love that the ruffles don’t stop at the front of the top, they make their way all around, making it fun and flirty from every angle. I also love the versatility. The top could easily be dressed up for church with a white lace pencil skirt, be ready to party when paired with a mini skirt or be worn in a casual chic way with denim like I did for today’s post.
While the ultra ruffled tops can be seen everywhere, I hadn’t seen a pair of jeans with a mega ruffled hem like these, so I was immediately drawn to them. I thought at first I’d need to dress them down with a graphic tee, but they actually worked perfect with the equally-ruffled gingham top. What I also love about the jeans is that they’re under $100!
To accessorize, I kept things simple and classic, with black pumps (these Sam Edelman beauties are currently on major sale!!), classic round sunnies and pearl statement earrings. I added another ultra feminine detail with this amazing blush pink velvet hair bow and this fun pom pom bag.
