Ruffle Envy

Ultra Girly Lace Frills

These ultra girly and very elaborate lacy frills that decorate the sleeves and cascade down the length of this jumpsuit are a definition  of femininity.

 A sartorial symbol of delicate womanhood, ruffles date back to the fifties and I’ve been obsessed with this throwback fashion trend lately. They are featured in skirts, tops, shoes and bags. Remember these looks here, herehere? I’m truly obsessed! If you’re like me then you must be enjoying this comeback as well. 

Hi guys! It’s been a hot minute huh? Y’all know my day job is teaching and when school gets back in session, its very challenging to juggle all the feathers I wear effectively. But I’ve missed everyone and I’m positive I was missed too. The break was great though, Ha!

I didn’t do a lot of traveling over the Summer unlike in Summers past but I did turn up the volume in cascading ruffles at my college reunion in San Diego. It's one of the outfits I wore to dinner at the weekend long reunion. 

Are you a fan of ruffles and frills and how do you work them into your wardrobe and style?

  16. As much as I love them on people like you, I feel completely out of place when I wear ruffles. I can't deal with the attention they bring and gladly leave the ruffled spotlight to sparkling beauties like you are one.

  23. This pink jumpsuit looks amazing on you. It is such an eye-catching piece. I do love the cut...and the lace material is so pretty. Those ruffles really make it extra special, though. I'm a big fan of ruffles. They are so feminine, aren't they? I'm very happy that ruffles are in again and I plan to wear them as much as I can.

    You do look sensational in this outfit...always so gorgeous and inspiring! You wear this jumpsuit so well. Love the bag and the heels as well.

    The start of the new school year is always a busy time. I started teaching in a new school, so its been a hectic start of the semester for me as well.
