OOTD: ruffly ruffles rufflester.

(p.s.: There's still time to ask me questions! Thanks for the questions so far, and I can't wait to share my answers with you-- probably tomorrow evening.)

Have I mentioned how much I heart ruffles?! Thank you for not going away this spring, you pretty, ethereal things, you.

Shoes: Liliana Bardor pumps
Belt: Express
Necklace: Express

I bought these two items last week because I fell in love with these shorts and thought I might as well get a top to go with 'em, too. Honestly, I think the top works better in "theory" than in "practice" but it still works alright (maybe it's a matter of a different belt/necklace combo; maybe it's just not the perfect top for these shorts, I'm not yet sure). And I'm mixing metals again... livin' life on the wild side, I am. I love the pastels here... it's what I've been lusting after since the rays of spring started seeping in to my mind. I feel so feminine, as evidenced by the second photo (is that my ode to the tap short? heh!). As a quick review for anyone interested in either piece, the shorts are a 2 but I'm planning on exchanging them for a 0. I'd say that means they're pretty TTS. I knew I might have trouble with sizing since I've never ordered shorts/pants/skirts from UO, but I wanted to get them anyway and try my luck. And this top was an amazing spur-of-the-moment buy-- it's a thin silk chiffon with gorgeous up-close details that I failed to photograph, but trust me. It's understated and gorgeous. I am quite tempted to get the other colors, too-- there are so many options for styling this shirt. And both items are under $50. That's my kind of deal. :)

  2. ooh- they are too cute on you! I can't wait for mine to come in the mail- I went with a 2, I'm glad I did if your exchanging for a smaller size (I was worried they ran small and I should have sized up to a four)

  4. EEEP! They look great on you! I ordered mine in a 2, so it looks like I'll be sending off an order for a 0 and returning the 2 when it gets here. They are darling, though- and I'm happy to see they look just as awesome in real life as they are on the website. *runs!(

  6. Those shorts! I really have been wanting these. And those shoes! Are they the same ones that Chloe has? I was so tempted to buy them, until you guys told me they are really uncomfortable. But they are just so gorgeous! I am addicted, always will be, to ruffles ;)
