Getting back to the point where I can wear outfits not purely for comfort is refreshing. My mom and I recently went on a little shopping excursion where I added some key pieces I’d been waiting to buy post-pregnancy. This one shoulder ruffle top is equal parts feminine + playful. The stripes are all New England prepster, yet a dramatic hemline takes it to new levels. And paired with my favorite summer jeans, this simple look becomes a staple. I’m also thinking at some point I can wear the blouse tucked into a pencil skirt for that more work-chic approach.
