Ruffles and Destroyed Denim

Here we are again with another look with ruffles! I’ve been drawn to them lately, particularly the high neck, ruffle yoke type. I think ruffles on sleeves are lovely (see the last blog post) but not the most practical because they wrinkle easily under coats, and you have to be super careful at dinner lest they take a dip into your spaghetti. Now, ruffles in any other location are perfect to just add a little retro vibe to your otherwise basic winter knit. See below for a few of my picks for knits with ruffles.

I also recently picked up these jeans, which I already own in a different wash. This dark charcoal wash is everything right now, and this one’s a high waist, rigid denim, straight leg, all for under $100. Also, these white pumps were such a random purchase made very long ago, but I’ve worn them more times than I could possibly count and I always get compliments- which leads me to ponder- is white the new black?? I’ve linked to a couple of my picks at different price points for you all – just scroll down.

I wore this over the weekend both days, (because I didn’t get a picture the first time- haha). I squeeze in an outfit picture on the way to the grocery store, the gym, play date – anywhere I can because the days when I could spend hours taking outfit pictures are long gone. Actually I started this blog after Adam was born so I never really had much time to begin with, but it is just even less now with two kids and, might I add, zero nannies. But I’ve learned, kids or not -everyone is busy, and you just have to make time to do the things you want to do, that is a fact.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If no one has told you yet today, I appreciate you, you are beautiful, and…nice butt 😉

  • That look when...ALL your friends tell you (after you ask them, for research obv) that your best quality is that you are ‘REAL and RELATABLE’ and at first I took it as meaning i was not ‘aspirational’ as Fashion Bloggers are supposed to be (are they? I don’t know I’m rambling now) but now I’m thinking....is that actually such a bad thing?? I mean I would hope I’m real...Isn’t being real aspirational these days?

  • We shot this picture a few weeks ago because Tom’s uncle was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and we wanted to cheer him up (Adam and I made the sign and his other uncle made special bracelets) since then I’ve learned of even more friends of mine who have been diagnosed with cancer and it is just mind boggling how you can be so young and healthy and yet still be faced with it. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. I felt like sharing this pic (even though I look possessed) because sometimes we get so into our own heads about our lives, our own needs and wants - and this is just a reminder that if you have your health, you really have it all ❤️
  • I’ve had a love hate relationship with my living room paint color since we moved in to this house 7 years ago. I almost painted it all white this month but chickened out last minute - what do you guys think? Paint it or nah?
  • Gym update: Not there...
My mind is always running though, does that count???

  • Hot chocolate - not *just* my nickname in high school~ 😜@simplymithai makes desi sweets look as gawjus as they actually taste! From a girl who was forever scarred for bringing seviyan (a Pakistani dessert) to school for ‘culture day’ (the kids thought they were worms in milk) so....these pretty pieces are a breath of fresh air! (These ornaments are actually filled with hot chocolate and marshmallows!)
