For this blog post, I bring you the ultimate outfit of ruffles on ruffles! I’ve been wanting a striped ruffle skirt with an asymmetrical hem for awhile and was so surprised that I found one that I loved on Target.com. Once I had the skirt, there was a certain type of top I had in mind that I wanted to style the skirt with. It had to be white, off-shoulder, and have ruffles too. Luckily, what I pictured in my head this time worked!

Happy Friday Everyone! Today I bring you one of my favorite blouses of all time. This beautiful white ribbon tie lace top is as gorgeous in person as it is in the pictures.

The pictures were taken at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge (about 20 minutes north of DTLA). I really wanted to see cherry blossoms so we made a plan to spend the morning up there.

On our last night in Singapore, Mother Nature gave us the most beautiful blue skies and an amazing golden sunset. The weather was just right where it was hot during the day, but it steadily stayed warm throughout the night. It was the type of weather where you can actually go out in let’s say, a floral mini dress and not ever feel cold.

Nothing feels more like spring to me than wearing bright bold colors. Since it’s still early spring and a little too cold to be going bare legs, I turn to beautiful one pieces like this red jumpsuit.
