Topshop High Waist Cigarette TrousersAre you seeing the reoccurring theme yet with these ruffles? Basically I am obsessed and I really hope they do not got out of style soon because I am far too invested at this point. I saw this cute plaid and ruffle top when I was walking around BP at Nordstrom and I was instantly in love. Sometimes I reflect on the styles I am drawn to today and think of how I would have never thought twice about it back in high school or the beginning of college. This is one of those moments. The ruffles on this top are so prominent and I love them. Back then I would have laughed and agreed with my boyfriend when he called me a linebacker… like I said on Instagram, boys know nothing. *Insert Bride Wars quote “What do they teach boys in school?!”
Anyways, this top is different and I love it. The colors are very in with the holiday spirit so I am happy that we are past Halloween and I can finally wear it. Plus it has actually, for the most part, been cool enough to wear it. I saw it at Nordstrom, thought about it nonstop for like three days and bought it before I regretted it. It was my “congratulations you have been at your new job a year” gift. It was a splurge and I bought it full price. Of course NOW it is on sale for 40% off, but you know what? I wanted it to much I’m not even that mad about it.
I love that it can be worn casually or dressed up. This past Saturday I paired it with my high waist Topshop Jamies and my over the knee tan boots from Target (dv for Target last year) and I loved it. This may sound weird but you know when you are rocking an outfit that most people would say they couldn’t pull off, it just makes you feel cooler? That was me and I relished in it.
On the dressed up end for work, I paired it with my, again, high waist Topshop cigarette trousers, my red bow heels from Steve Madden (older), and a red lip. I thought it was fun to bring out the red in the top. The perfect pairing yet again! I am just so obsessed. I will link all pieces below but if you like it go check it out because I do not know how long the sale lasts. Embrace the ruffle movement with me! 😉
