Show Me the Ruffles

Summer is almost over (sad face), but don't worry! We still have time for more summer looks and I'm not done with my off the shoulder outfits yet! I don't remember where, but I saw someone wearing a yellow off the shoulder top somewhere on the internet, and I was determined to find one of my own. I was specifically looking for a piece that had ruffles on the top hem. It may seem like a small detail, but it makes a world of a difference. I was searching everywhere until I finally found this piece. I'm not big on super girly clothing, but I needed these ruffles in my life. This top is so festive and bright, it's a great piece that really makes you stick out in a crowd! Yellow is actually my favorite color. It literally brightens my day and my mood! I wanted to keep the tones light so I paired the top with these light blue denim shorts and some tan slip on mules with a gold buckle and faux fur details. I stuck with the gold theme and accessorized with some simple gold studs and a layered choker. I've been dying to style this London Dune purse and this was the perfect outfit for it. This is one of the purses featured in my Handbags Galore post! It tied everything together perfectly with its gold and yellow details. I put my hair up in a ponytail and pulled some strands out to frame my face for this chic summery look. For makeup, I stuck with some copper/light brown shades for my eyes and a burnt orange lip. Lastly, I had my oversized square sunglasses to shield my eyes and add a more high end glamorous touch.
