ruffle necks

I am unbelieveably miffed today.  Yesterday I couldn't find the skirt I wanted and today I couldn't find the dress I wanted.  {Our poor dry-cleaner is continually blamed for these incidents... and then-->} Of course while searching for said dress this morning, I found the skirt I was clamoring for yesterday.  So maybe tomorrow I'll find that dress.  Of course it will be TOO LATE because I have fun plans TONIGHT.  Blech.  


I was told I looked very lawyerly yesterday... a comment which always leads me to believe that I don't look very lawyerly most other days.  Pfffftttt.  

Striped Ruffle Collar Button-Down - J. Crew
Brown Pleated Wool Suit Skirt - Banana Republic
Tomato "Juliet" Pumps - J.Crew
Floral Earrings - J.Crew


I have a presentation today and had my outfit all planned out last night... and then POOF, desired frock was no where to be found.  So I grabbed this one and went with it... only to remember that this dress is a tad short.  Here's hoping there's a podium to stand behind. 

Turquoise Ruffle Neck Dress - unknown brand via Nordstrom
V-Neck Boyfriend Cardigan - White & Warren
Suede & Patent "Harper" Pumps - J.Crew
Flannel & Patent "Molly" Bow Pumps - J.Crew (ie, what I'm actually wearing - they were in the car and the "Harpers" were a seasonally inappropriate stand-in for the photo)
Gold Feather Earrings - Kendra Scott via Gilt Fuse
Gold Medallion Necklace - gift
Ivory & Gold Bangle - Banana Republic
Magenta Skinny Belt - The Limited


  1. Love the J.Crew stiped ruffle blouse! I wear mine all the time, it's the perfect shirt (when you can get the ruffles to lay just right)!

  2. Dang! I saw that ruffle shirt a few months back at J.Crew and didn't snag it!

  3. I love how you styled the boyfriend cardigan. It makes so much sense, but I wouldn't think to do that. Good luck on your presentation!

  4. Why can I never get my skinny belts to look like that? Am I not buying the skinny belts meant to go around your waist?

    Also, the hair looks fab!

  5. Love the ruffled look! I have a few ruffled shirts myself - though I find they're hard to keep looking nice rather than wrinkly when they get out of the dryer. Perhaps it's the material?

  6. Love these two outfits. Love the shoe combo for Tuesday's outfit!
