I’ve noticed a recurring theme with some of my recent summer dress purchases…. ruffles. Yep, that’s right, ruffles. I think they may be my latest obsession. Now, I’ve never been a big ruffle person. I have a few tops here and there but nothing consistent in my wardrobe. That is, not until now. I mean, ruffles can be tricky. The last thing you want is a “Puffy Shirt” incident… a la Seinfeld, right? Ruffles are great but you have to find the right way to work them in. And I think I have. I’ve been looking online for a nice summer dress for an upcoming Women’s Brunch event. Nothing too formal, of course, but not quite as casual as my usual everyday sundresses. So, I found this one… and that’s when it hit me, ruffles may be my newest “thing”.
I personally love this dress from Ann Taylor…. It’s been tailored with such intricate detail and it has this great alluring flow to it. It’s just light and easy. It’s a great dress and it’s perfect for a summer time event, whether it be a brunch or a beautiful summertime wedding. I’ve been looking for that perfect dress and I think I may have found just the right one: the Ann Taylor Silk Georgette Dress in Hypnotic Pink. What do you think?
What I love about this dress is its piercing blue color and the cascade of the ruffle trim. Very light and flowy. It’s another great summer time dress – and it’s perfect as the temperature really begins to heat up. What I’m Wearing: Ann Taylor Soft Cascades Dress in Poolside, Enzo Angiolini Python Print Sandals, J. Crew Necklace and Versona Accessories.
And of course this yellow and white maxi is a favorite of mine too. It has a beautiful elongated silhouette and a great left side split. It’s definitely a grab and go glam item. What I’m Wearing: Ann Taylor Loft Maxi Dress, BCBG Sandals, B-Low the Belt Braided Hip Belt, Cole Haan Purse, and Versona Accessories.
Happy 4th of July everyone!!!
