Have I mentioned how much I heart ruffles?! Thank you for not going away this spring, you pretty, ethereal things, you.
Top: UO Shoulder Detail Blouse
Shorts: UO Ruffle Tap Shorts
Shoes: Liliana Bardor pumps
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. :)
