The Fab 40s in Ruffles

Jenny from A Pocketful of Polka Dots called ruffles this month. At first I was like, “Meh. I’m not such a ruffle girl.” But then I realized if I took a look in my wardrobe, it’s actually filled with ruffles. I had a laugh at myself!! There were so many options from a ruffle unitard, a one shoulder ruffle denim dress, or my fun Who What Wear romper from Target. I went with the polka dot flirty number. I’ve worn it so many times: in Suncadia for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary, for my sister’s baby shower, and for a meet-up with an annual lunch with two very good high school friends. This little outfit makes me feel dressed up but casual at the same time. It has ruffles on the sleeves and on the shorts. The wrap part goes to the perfect point of my décolletage while not showing too much. Finally, the icing on the top is being able to not wear tennis shoes with this number. It’s been a long time coming, but this summer I’ve been able to venture and return to the world of sandals and flats. Ahhhh, it feels so good to wear something other than tennis shoes! (Granted my tennis shoe collection continues to grow!) And it also feels good to wear ruffles. I guess I’m more of a ruffle girl than I knew!
