I’m all aflutter for these ruffle sleeves (surprisingly)!

When it comes to ruffles I tend to steer clear of them. I’m talking miles and miles away. Potentially with an ocean in between. This could have something to do with the fact that as a child I went through a phase where I would only wear dresses. Even when I lived in Rochester, NY in the middle of winter (Sorry Mom!). And I’m not just talking dresses, I’m talking the frilliest, girliest, most floral abominations that would have been better relegated to bedspread than a piece of clothing. Nowadays, I avoid frilly, but after covering up these fun sleeves when I first wore this top, I decided to just embrace them and let the top be the star by pairing it with neutral bottoms and heels. While some could joke I look closer to a picnic table than a bedspread thanks to the gingham, I’m happy I fully embraced this top and played around. After all, my mission is to remix, rematch and step out of my comfort zone.
