Patterned + Ruffled

I first became conscious of Isabel Marant through Kelly, but really aware while in Europe when SIL was considering purchasing their ankle boots. While she was looking for other items around the store, I saw and liked a ruffled maxi skirt (dress version) on the racks. Only larger sizes remained, so I didn't give it another thought.

Through a combination of mental digging and Google, I found Clara wearing the blouse version in the same print. Of course I'm always one step behind, so most sizes were sold out when sales hit, but I did manage to snag one off eBay. Fist pump!

I think given the colors of the top, it was natural to gravitate towards white + black color pairings. Of course, it wasn't after I took photos and started writing this entry did I realize Clara had already worn the white jeans + black purse combo. D'oh! No worries, because for future outfits I can see this top also working well with denim shorts, green/tan military jacket, ankle boots, peasant/eyelet skirt in a longer length, etc.

    1. I wasn't sure the flats would go with the outfit... but ended up deciding on this one over plain black ballet flats. I wish I had more "edgy" flats in my wardrobe :)

    1. Haha, really?! I find writing posts to be the hardest part of blogging just because I'm not a great writer and it's the toughest to improve on, imo. But I'm trying, so thank you!
