Fall Style: Ruffles; Lace & Velvet


Hello beauties.  How goes it? Happy Friday Eve! Your girl is back with another one for you:-) If you’ve been reading over the last few weeks, you’ll know I am 100% here for the many fall trends out there! When I was a little girl, I remember my mom wearing pussy bow blouses and how cute I thought they were back then.  Today, I’m still in love with those pussy bow blouses and I don’t care if they’re a trend or not, will always rock ’em.  NOW, today’s post features a pussy bow blouse, which is ultra-cool because it also has ruffles as well as lace — two other fall trends I’m loving.  Read on for some easy styling tips:

1. Pair with a Skirt (Great for Work/Church/Brunch)

  • For this particular look, I paired the lace ruffled pussybow blouse with a printed skirt
  • The skirt I chose is a fitted, pencil skirt
  • You can rock pretty much any skirt…Flared, A-line, circle…You get the picture!
  • Cinch your waist (ALWAYS!)

2. Wear with Jeans (Great for Casual Friday/Cocktails/Night Out)

  • Another alternative is to pair the top with jeans
  • Try flared, cropped, skinny, culotte/wide leg…any kind of jeans!

3. Complete the Look with Cute Boots

  • Be adventurous, ladies!
  • DO try different textures…Velvet!
  • Velvet is in this fall and there are so many cute styles to snag at budget-friendly prices

BONUS: DO Mix Prints!

  • Mixing prints is always fun and not as difficult as we may think
  • Don’t be afraid to mix prints
  • Pick out a color that’s consistent on both prints and off you go!
  • With today’s look, grey was a common color in the prints on the skirt + the boots so I mashed up the two different prints!

See how easy it is to style?! Let me know what you think.  Would love to hear from you!
