6 Days of Spring Style Day 4: Ruffle Top & a Skirt

Folding laundry is a pain! Who is with me? This is one thing I wish there was an affordable device to do. I think hotels have it. I just want this chore to pass as I have been folding clothes all evening. The real question should be "Why do you have so many clothes, young lady?".

I digress.

For today's look, we will be looking at how I styled a white ruffle top. You know this week's reference post is our one and only Spring trends post and so far, we have ticked off about 5 of those 7 items. Yayyy! Your feedback has been amazing, by the way. We hope we have inspired you.

 

How to Style a Ruffle Top: Office Chic

I love ruffle tops! Anything with sensibly placed details is a win for me. With this top from Missguided, I bought it just because I had recently told myself to take more risks when it comes to shopping for tops. I feel like I never have enough, or I get a humdrum feeling from the tops I already own. So I cringed as I added this to my cart but I ended up loving it, even though the fabric isn't what I expected it to be. 

Note to self: Take more risks!

The ruffles are amazing and the jacket was a perfect fit for this look. You will see the first way I styled this top and blazer combo next week but for now, I hope this look inspires you to add ruffles to your closet. My skirt is a "friendship skirt" I bought while visiting my friend recently.

 

I'll let you in on that trip soon. The shoes you'll see in this post are called sling backs and I'll tell you something - that bow detail got me, in addition to the already breathtaking sling backs and slender heel. Let's see more pictures of the entire outfit :)
