The Ruffle Shuffle

When I have my picture taken for my blog, I often attract curious looks from people passing, especially when the weather is biting and squally. I have to wait until there’s a pause in the sleet and dash outside, take the shots and scuttle indoors before I freeze. I should probably blog about clothes appropriate for the weather, but I’m bored and can’t wait for spring. This cropped top is from Zara and has a subtle SS16 Proenza Schouler vibe that I like very much. I’m a romantic at heart and I love ruffles, however as I get older it becomes trickier to wear full on frills. The top is restrained enough to still be sophisticated and doesn’t look like a doily. I’ve styled it with a vintage skirt that I’ve had for years and heels from Lucy Choi.
