The Fringe Off: Styling Ruffles

White Ruffled and Lace Up Shirt Plaid Mini Skirt Yellow Tights Clogs

It's been nearly a year since our last The Fringe Off collaboration - see how we styled tacky Christmas sweaters last winter - but here we are again styling ruffles! Be sure to check out how everyone else styled this trend at the end of this post. 

The ruffled shirt, the star of this post, is from Forever 21 and combines two recent trends: lace up and ruffles. My plaid skirt is a new favorite that I got from Primark when I was over in Scotland last month. The brown clogs are from Kork Ease's less expensive brand, Korks, and they're the comfiest things. I'll be so sad when they wear out. 

This outfit is one of my favorites I've put together lately. I'm excited it's finally cool enough for tights at home because I think the mustard yellow tights add a lot to this look. It all just seems very "fall" to me! It's also been interesting seeing how my clothes and usual color schemes look with blonde hair instead of red.

And in case you wanted to see it - here's my "travel" engagement ring below. It's vintage with mixed metal and green garnet and is super pretty. My fancy one is being made but I think this one is pretty fancy itself! Once the other one arrives, I'll probably wear this one on my right hand most days. "Why would anyone need two engagement rings?" you may ask. Answer: Matt didn't want to drag along a pricey ring on our 2+ week trek through 4 countries but still wanted to propose with a ring while over there.

I really like the colours in this outfit - the top is lovely, but it also works as a brilliant canvas for the blue, red and mustard. Kx
