For the love of ruffles!
Thursday afternoon, I had to take a little impromptu trip to Memphis to take care of some family stuff. Saturday when I returned to Nashville, I took a 3 hour nap and then put this outfit on. I visited some friends while they worked (at Ugly Mugs!), and then headed to grocery store to pick up some food. Other than that, a pretty lazy Saturday. But I felt so chic running around town! Last weekend I met up with Kristin and sifted through her vintage before she consigned it to Rachel's shop. I was beyond thrilled to walk out of there with this purple floral dress! I folded it over and wore it as a skirt and paired it with one of my Trixxi tops.
Have I told you how much I love ruffles? Oh, I loooove ruffles. I could cover myself head to toe in ruffles if it was possible. I lent one of my favorite ruffly tops to Mel in our swap so I was happy that I received this top in the mail from Trixxi. I had actually been coveting many black ruffle tanks and couldn't wait to give this one a test drive. I think it will be one of my favorites come fall and winter when the weather turns cooler and I can wear pants again.
I've been feeling a little ugh lately. Especially as I am typing this up, I am wanting to crawl back in bed and curl up into the fetal position. I'm not coming down with anything just feeling icky. I have also been considering and thinking about my blog and just dealing with some things. Soon, I should be back to my usual snarky-self.
