Gingham and Ruffles

Gingham and Ruffles

I’m super excited to share this outfit because its finally getting warm here in Chicago and I’m busting out all my warm weather clothes. I recently went to New York (why I haven’t been posting lately) and I did so much shopping. I couldn’t wait to share all the new outfits with you guys. These pants were defiantly at the top of my list to share with you because the minute I saw them in a store I knew I loved them! They’re light cotton and very soft, perfect for summer. I’ve been looking for a Gangnam print pair of pants for a while now and I found these were perfect. They even have a cute ruffle detailing on the pockets. Since these pants are definitely a statement I focused the rest of the outfit around them. I paired a plain cotton white tank top and a simple pair of low block heels. I got these pants at Zara and while looking through their website. I found that they have so many great pairs of pants to choose from for summer. (all links below)

Ruffles for Valentines Day

Ruffles for Valentines Day

I’m so excited for Valentines Day because it’s another excuse to dress up wear tons of pink and red. Since date night is the route most people take for Valentines Day I used this as my inspiration for this outfit. For this outfit, I actually did something I’ve never done before, but I’ve seen been done. This top here is really…a dress. When I first saw this be done I thought I would never bring my self to do it. But here we are, when picking this outfit out I just couldn’t resist. All I did was tuck a short fitted dress into a skirt. Then I just paired it with a pair of black heels and there we go. I challenge you to try this to change things up a bit and its a great way to rewear dresses in a new way (we all know we have those dresses we only have worn once but can’t find a way to wear them). Also, of course, I couldn’t find this dress anywhere (I originally got it from Bloomingdales) but you can really do this with any dress, but I linked another dress any way that I thought would look just as good. Happy Valentine’s day!
