Ruffles and Roses

Dress: Topshop, tights: Forever 21, ballet flats: Coach, necklace: Forever 21, sunglasses: Oliver Peoples.

As I mentioned here I've been trying to incorporate more muted, soft colours into my wardrobe. I realized that I have a tendency to gravitate toward prints and bright colours, but after seeing other bloggers rocking outfits in shades of peach, soft pink and cream, I've decided to give it a try.

I couldn't be happier with this Topshop ruffle shift dress. I find it to be really comfortable and figure-flattering at the same time, and the tiered ruffles make it so feminine. I'm definitely going to be looking for more dresses in this shape for fall.


  1. Teaming neutral colors with those floral printed tights is a real chic look!

  6. I'm like you - always heading towards the prints and the bold. I've made the same resolve to use more neutral and more muted colours, we'll see how that goes!
