Ruffles, Bracelets and Bows, OH MY!

Saturday, March 10, 2012

I love classic pieces with an edge.  In fact, this is what attracts me to stores like JCrew. They carry very basic articles of clothing with an edge.  The jacket below is a prime example of this.  It's your standard three quarter length sleeve spring jacket, yet this one has a beautiful ruffle detail on the collar all the way down the front that adds a certain whimsical feel to it.  I purchased it in Spring 2008 a few short months after having the girls.  I had lost my baby weight so i was excited to build my Spring wardrobe.  I walked into JCrew and there it was!  I fell in love... and honestly, to this very day, it's one of my absolute favorite Spring Jackets!  It's so versatile.  You can wear it with a fab pair of jeans or capris and know that you look super chic!  I snatched it immediately because i knew it would sell out... and sure enough, it did! 

Another trend I'm loving right now, is pairing up bracelets for a chunky look.  In the pictures below, I'm wearing a double wrap Tory Burch metallic gold bracelet, Tory Burch chain bracelet with matching earrings purchased at Nordstrom though i no longer see them on their website and a rose gold Michael Kors watch. 

Lastly, i love the ballet slippers pictured below.  I purchased them at the Gap a couple of years ago.  The bow is that little bit of edge or whimsy on a classic shoe.


Notice the sleeves have a little ruffle too... so fun!



***A special thank you to my "wifey" (friend and former team teacher) Millie for taking the gorgeous pictures!  Also, a special thank you to my wonderful friends Julie and Liz for taking pics for previous blog entries.  You guys ROCK!

  1. When you set out to purchase diamond engagement rings, you might want to visit several stores. Limiting to one store alone would not do you any good even if it means finding the right deal. There could be several other stores that could give you better options with a similar budget you may have in mind.
