Lookbook: Ruffles and Stripes

Happy Monday! Hope everyone got to enjoy their weekends. Mine was busy but a lot of fun. We (my hubs and I) stopped by the Boutique Culture Warehouse Sale and I got to meet my twitter/blogging friends @boutiqueculture, @alixrose, @agentnoir, @jessestrada, and the gorgeous designer @jesicamilton who I bought the most adorable skirt from. Oh and I also got to meet @vuesociety at the Product Runway show! If you are on twitter make sure to follow all of them, they are all such fabulous ladies!

Anyway, onto Monday Lookbook! I knew I liked ruffles but didn't really realize it until I was just looking through my past lookbooks and noticed how many ruffle-y shirts I own. I also really love short sleeve button down blouses but those, I don't own as many of.

What I'm Wearing:
Blouse: Zara
Shorts: Banana Republic
Shoes: Dior
blue&whiteblue&white2

I got this shirt a few years ago and haven't worn it much, but couldn't part with it because I loved the ruffles. I just bought these cute striped shorts and when I went to pair it with a top I decided that the ruffles would do!

I love the subtle stripes and the color of these shorts as well as the cute tabs on the sides. Shorts are the one thing that I will miss when fall comes as I'm not one that transitions to fall wearing shorts. I just can't do the tights under shorts thing. I think it's adorable on others but just doesn't work for me.

And the perfect touch were my blue Dior pumps! I love how these pumps go with so many of my outfits. It's a blue that's kinda unexpected but works so well with all sorts of looks.

Last day to enter my Blogiversary Giveaway!

  2. Perfect outfit -- isn't it great when you DON'T get rid of things and then much later work them into your regular wardrobe?

  12. Very cute! I've been dying to wear outfits like this, but can't seem to find the time. Shorts would be too casual for work, but the heels would be a bit to much for a nice relaxing weekend day.

  22. It was great bumping into you too. I love the pin stripe on the shorts and yes ruffles seem to sneak up on you. The leggings under shorts doesnt really work for me either, but am ok with that. :)

    I thought for a second I could do the tights under shorts thing, but uh no. I think it's the length of my legs, or something. Just awful looking. :(
