I feel like ruffles didn’t exist before this spring. Maybe because the previous years’ designs weren’t my cup of tea, but I sure did miss out on this trend up until now. I have to confess my summer closet contains more ruffles any one might need in a season, but the reason I collect them is because they are all so different – ruffled sleeves, ruffled straps, ruffled belts or hems. This particular top I got on a huge sale and it’s probably the safest thing to buy if you’re only starting to get the hang of the trend. It pairs with simple wardrobe staples like denim bottoms and is super easy to wear.
I absolutely love the idea of layering items on top of one another, so when I found a crop top, that’s smaller than all my other crop tops (also it had only one shoulder!), I had to have it and wear it and layer it all at once. Will definitely wear it as a more summery piece when the temps get hotter, but for now I loved playing with white and navy accents in this outfit.
I simply can’t get enough of these fur slides from Public Desire! They are comfy and they are eye-catching and this is what for me constitutes a good shoe. I have to confess I’ve worn them a lot, and my favorite way to pair them is with something unexpected, like this otherwise elegant outfit that would look great with a pair of stiletto pumps and which my mom would prefer so much more than these weird paws lol. Anyways, my idea of a perfect look involving a pair of fur slides definitely revolves around something tailored or oversized, or both if you dare.
Sometimes I tend to buy things that are not necessarily my style, and while I love them, wearing them just doesn’t feel right. This is when this jacket comes to the rescue. A leather biker jacket has this amazing property to align pieces in outfit to make it seem more coherent, you just put it on top of whatever and it magically makes you look cooler and edgier. I wasn’t sure about this skirt because it arrived a size too big, but since I already ripped the tags off, I had to wear it at least once, and a leather jacket + sneakers totally saved it for me.
As I recently noticed, sometimes my outfits have a lot going on, I guess when it gets warmer my heart desires color and detail. And detail you have, from printed pink loafers, to ripped denim, to Route 66 tee and a guitar strap Marc Jacobs bag in fuchsia. Not used to this kind of maximalism, I have to confess, but once you go that road it seems like there’s no stopping. Plain textures just seem too boring right now!
