Ruffled Edges

When I saw Abbey wearing a pair of ruffle-hem trousers a few weeks ago, I was instantly intrigued & wondered if I could pull them off.  Being slightly pear-shaped, great-fitting pants are notoriously hard for me to find so I wasn't convinced I'd have much success.  But, I decided to take a chance on this printed pair and I was pleasantly surprised!  They're really lightweight & super comfortable because they aren't too tight through the leg (these are a looser fit, so I recommend sizing down).  What I like about this style is that the ruffle is subtle, as opposed to being a strong statement - I've included some less overwhelming styles below that are great options for those who are "ruffle-shy".  

Also, I finally tried the hair scarf trend & I love it - I think this will be my go-to style on those hot & humid summer days.  This is a great solution for when you're wanting to extend your blowout one extra day - spray a little dry shampoo at your roots, tie on a scarf & go!  What worked best for me was first securing my hair with a clear elastic and then double-knotting the scarf on top so it stays put throughout the day.  Another product I picked up recently that I love are these leather hair ties (vegan leather option here) - these are great for when you're wearing your hair half-up or in a ponytail, but they also look chic secured at the end of a braid.

What I'm wearing:
Lucy Love Top (similar here or here), Mango Trousers (also in gingham), 
c/o Kenneth Cole Cork Sandals (similar here or here), 
Vintage Bag (similar here or here), Halogen Scarf (similar), 
BaubleBar Earrings (similar), Lips: WinkyLux Lip Stain (Pink)
