This Spring I am finding myself drawn to ruffles and fun prints in lightweight cotton fabrics. I am tired of the overuse of cheap rayon and polyester by every ready to wear clothing manufacturer on the planet. I am therefore so happy to see a refreshing amount of cotton poplin recently. When the weather here in Southern California starts to feel like hades, I will be cool in my breathable cotton skirts and breezy blouses. Also although I definitely appreciate minimalist design, I obviously (as you will come to see) prefer a good amount of flair. I am ecstatic about all the design details that are in abundance this season, from the statement sleeve to the bold floral prints. I styled this ruffled cotton skirt from J. Crew (which is now 30% off with code BIGSALE) with this floral print top from Zara. The sunglasses are from CRAP eyewear, vintage fruit necklace, bangles and box bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs heels (old). I love the ruffle sleeves on the blouse and the stripe and floral combination of mixed prints is so fun. I also love all the box bags that are everywhere now such as this one, this one and this one. I also styled this skirt with a vintage western ruffle blouse for a different look.
