Happy almost Friday babes!! This week has gone by so quick and I couldn’t be more ready for the weekend…and warmer weather, can you tell?? For those of you who live in California, you know the weather has been absolute madness these past few weeks..I’m talking rainstorms, flash floods and even mudslides (crazy right?!) Not exactly the best scenario for my shooting schedule, but I’m hoping to shoot a lot of new looks this weekend! Spring is right around the corner and I can’t wait to pull out my florals, flirty rompers, and flowy dresses :) So I decided to start spring a little early with this off-shoulder ruffle blouse by Storets.. I fell in love with its flirty, yet chic structure and pop of color!!
Ruffles are still going strong for spring and quickly becoming one of the top trends, so today I thought I would share some tips for styling a ruffle blouse! The key to styling a ruffled or ruched blouse like this one is to balance out the proportions of your outfit. Because the ruffles and sleeves on this blouse are so exaggerated and puffy, I wore straight skinny jeans and a skinny ankle heel to elongate my figure. It’s easy for your figure to get lost in ruffles, so I always make sure to get pieces with a cinched waist or add a skinny belt to any dress or blouse. I also kept the rest of my look, including my hair and make-up sleek and simple to put emphasis on the blouse.
This blouse gives me a bit of a Parisian vibe, so I decided to keep it’s romantic and flirty feel by pairing it with cropped denim and my new babies by Tony Bianco..the Kashmir suede heels!! How gorgeous is this rich red suede?! To keep the emphasis on the blouse and heels, I finished off this look with my white Saint Laurent bag. And if you followed along on my IG stories..I unfortunatley got dye stains on this bag and have been trying to get them out for the past 2 days :( Finally gave in and took it to a professional purse cleaner..stay tuned for the end result and fingers crossed!!
Love the oversized bow on the blouse… not only does it add a flirtatious touch, but it cinches my waist perfectly!!
