When I was packing for my recent trip to North Yorkshire, I decided that I wanted something new to wear for dinner in the evening. (Any excuse!) My initial idea was a really pretty, feminine dress, but for some reason I just couldn't seem to find anything I liked. Then there was the threatening weather forecast, and we all know I hate to feel cold! Luckily, Topshop came up trumps when I spotted this super sweet, ruffled top.
It's high necked, so I knew that paired with some smart black cigarette pants, I would feel covered up enough to be comfortable in the less than clement weather, yet the frilled details and delicate floral print give a nod to spring time that I think we all start to crave around this time of year. I particularly love the frill around the yoke, which is a trend that seems to be really popular right now.
I picked up the cigarette pants from Topshop at the same time. They were a real bargain at £22 as they are such a classic item that can be worn with anything and everything. Some black heels (also Topshop and worn to death) and one of my trusty Zara bags completed the look.
I teamed the outfit with a bright pink lip, which just happened to be Brighton Rock by Topshop. So I guess you could say that Topshop is serving me pretty well right now!
I felt so comfortable and feminine in this outfit and can't wait to wear the top again. I think it would look really pretty tucked into jeans for daytime or with a skirt for a different take on a smarter look.
Are you a fan of ruffles and frills? How do you style them?
