RUFFLES AND LEATHER
One of the things I love the most about the west coast is that in some ways, spring and summer are kind of like one long season in the sense that we get to pull out the summer gear a few months earlier than anyone else. These two pieces have already been on regular rotation this year, and I have a feeling they're going to continue to be heavy hitters all summer long.
I haven't been able to get my fill of ruffles yet - I want them in all shapes and sizes, on all parts of my clothing. No ruffle is too big! While I love a victorian twist on a ruffle, a little Spanish inspiration never hurts either. I especially love them when there's some kind of juxtaposition. This top's vertical stripes have an almost pinstripe feel that gives it a modern look, while the ruffles maintain plenty of romance.
Are you into ruffles? And if so, how do you wear them?
