Happy Monday… oh wait… Wednesday! Anyone else feel like it’s the Monday-est Wednesday EVER after the long holiday weekend? The hubby and I seriously had the best (and busiest) weekend celebrating the 4th up in Lake Tahoe. It was beyond beautiful, and the weather could not have been any better!
I don’t know about you all, but I am crushing REAL hard on some ruffles lately. Just about anything with ruffles can be found in my closet… and they aren’t going anywhere as we see the transition into fall start happening! Below, you will find two must-have looks with some extra fun frill.
And BABES!!!! So excited!! Make sure to scroll all the way down as I talk one of the best sales of the year to stock up on all of your favorite fall finds for half the price! Stay tuned for more details!
1. Satin Crop Top & Ruffle Skirt
|| Top: ASTR || Skirt: Tularosa (comes in 3 colors) || Bag: Ted Baker (also comes in black) || Shoes: Raye The Label (also obsessed with these) || Earrings: 8 Other Reasons || Sunnies: A.J. Morgan (on sale for under $15) ||
If you follow me on Instagram, I showed this satin crop top in a try-on haul via Insta-stories last week. I paired it with some high-waisted cropped jeans because this white Tularosa skirt had not been delivered yet. I honestly LOVE LOVE LOVE it styled both ways! It’s definitely on the more summery side paired with this skirt, and the perfect transition piece worn with high-waisted denim. Satin is going to be a huuuuge trend this fall, and incorporating it in small ways is key. It comes in this gorgeous pastel aqua color. I adore the ruffle sleeves, and the elastic hem keeps it from rising up when tucked into bottoms. For reference, my measurements are 32 bust, 25 waist, 35 hip and I am wearing a size x-small in both the top and skirt.
2. Striped Off-The-Shoulder Ruffle Dress
|| Dress: Topshop || Bag: Free People || Mini Scarf: Free People || Shoes: Zara – call to purchase in-store (also love these) || Earrings: 8 Other Reasons|| Sunnies: A.J. Morgan (on sale for under $15) ||
It’s safe to say this little off-the-shoulder Topshop number is one of my favorites of the season! It is seriously a dream!! Because I am more on the petite side, I sometimes have a hard time wearing ruffles. This dress features a side zipper, which allows for a snug fit around the waist (and also finished with a bow). Because of that, the ruffles aren’t overwhelming and still show my figure. I love the light blue striped pattern and off-the-shoulder silhouette. Topshop is a UK brand, and tends to run small. If you’re in between sizes, I would definitely recommend sizing up. For reference, my measurements are 32 x 25 x 35 and I am wearing a US 2. I paired this dress with these GORGEOUS espadrilles from Zara. They are currently on sale for under $40. Call your local Zara store to purchase, as they are sold out online (but are still available in-store).
