While I can’t exactly claim I love every ruffle on offer, this little ruffle dress was too good to pass up.
THE LITTLE RUFFLE DRESS
Here we are more than half way through winter and I am still reaching for dresses at any excuse that I can. Barelegged obsessed? You bet. For as much as I love a classic denim or sleek pair of trousers, this girl will take any excuse to be bare legged (and barefoot for that matter!). Essentials for summer, ruffled, printed or block colour little dresses creep into my style all year. Even in the low temperatures. Naturally this incurs times where I encourage a mad dash between the car and my destination. Not to mention the subtle excuses to find any spot in the sun. Do what you gotta do!
This little ruffled number was spotted on a super rare occasion where I met up with Emily in an actual store to get a few essentials. Not a fan of shopping in busy malls, I do that typical male thing where I plan what I need, dash in, grab it and dash out. No time wasted! Time is better spend outside!
Finding a cute dress like this was a rare bonus.
At the moment there seems to be this explosion of colour in my head that had been lacking for the past few years. It probably shows. Just as I had taken a lot of it out, I want it back again. Though, over the years, the colours have changed a little.
Red, burgundy, dusty reds, mustard yellow, pastel yellow, olive green, dusty pink, navy, pastel blue, orange, and lilac are slowly creeping their way back into my sartorial choices. Come spring summer I think I will be about ready to embrace them more and more. How about you? What is your colour of choice right now?
As for the little ruffle dress? You are just going to keep seeing me in ruffle dresses. I have mad love for the simplicity of a little day or tea dress. I just managed to have my most recent Realisation Par dress fitted (I’m sure I’ll do an update post on them soon, but I found the size Small too big for me) and can not wait to wear it! Throw on a pair of flat shoes, leather (or faux as this one happened to be) jacket and the rest is done.
What colours are on your radar at the moment? Feeling anything new? Let me know!
