Ruffled Edges



I tend to gravitate towards feminine styles more than anything else - which is why I was thrilled to see ruffles making a comeback on the Spring 2013 runways.  I've slowly been adding a few ruffled pieces into my wardrobe (this top was the first).  So, when I came across this mint blouse, I fell in love with it & just had to order, even though it was technically "petite" sizing (tip: I ordered up a size & the fit is perfect!).  I couldn't resist matching these pieces to my new flower necklace for a sophisticated but fun ensemble.  Add a white blazer on top and this is the ideal summer office attire!






What I'm wearing:
ASOS Top, Forever 21 pants (similar herehere or here), Windsor heels (similar here or here), ModCloth bag (similar), c/o Lilac Bijoux Necklace, Bracelets: c/o Stella & Dot, Anne Klein (similar) & Vintage, Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Cherish

LOVE this top! The color is one of my favorite and the ruffles just make it sweet but yet sophisticated. I find myself gravitating towards ruffles lately as well. Love the navy/mint combo. Question- what color is on your toes?? :)

Such a great tip,ordering up a size in petite on Asos! I always see things on clearance and pass over them because I'm quite tall and assume they won't find tight! Great styling and uber feminine!
