Ruffles. I literally can’t get enough. On dresses, on sleeves, on roofs… ruffles errwhere.
In a recent post I shared the new trend of Spring — Romance Undone. Guess what falls into this category? You guessed it, ruffles! And I’m pretty obsessed with mixing the flirty, girly detail with a little masculine edge.
Ruffles On Top
It’s true, I give in to trends a little too often. However when I do, I like to go with a neutral color so that the piece can remain as classic as possible, with an added twist. Case in point, this extremely fun top compliments of SheIn, who carries all the latest and greatest trends at an affordable price point. High-low fashion y’all.
Patchwork & Metal On The Bottom
Giving in happened here too. I’m sorry but when I saw this pair of denim on my idol Mary Seng of Happily Grey, I knew they had to be mine. Distressed taken to another level. You can dress them up with a tight top and heels or down with flats as I did here. Thank you Free People!
Pro tip: these jeans run big! I decided to go down one size after trying them on, and then after I got in one wear, they stretched a ton, so had to go down another. Your welcome.
And these flats — SO fun. I love the grunge vibe they bring to any outfit (#soseattle) and you can’t beat the price of Nordstrom’s Halogen brand. Modeled off the designer options by Valentino & Givenchy these babies are money, without the money!
Men on Trends
I have to call out my husband here for not only being awesome when it comes to my obsession with fashion but also for his honest opinions on what I wear. Especially when it comes to new styles I try out, like this outfit.
Some may say men don’t understand fashion, but I think Trevor truly tries (I mean he has to with me, his mom and his sis), and I think he’s come a long way. He went from hating flowy (pro tip: men tend to like tight) to embracing rompers to totally jumping on the jogger train. I love it.
When I started writing this post, I needed a little inspo to get the juices flowing. Trevor popped into my office at the perfect time. Sharing the convo:
Me: What do you have to say about ruffles?
Trev: Uh, I love ruffles. They’re my favorite type of chip.
Me: <outburst look and laugh> hahahaha
Trev: <looking confused> What? What were you talking about?
Me: Ruffles on tops!
Trev: Oh. Well don’t I feel stupid.
😂 😂 😂
God I love him. And god do I love ruffles!
