One shoulder ruffle.

If there ever was an outfit that was "me". This is it. Feminine but modern at the same time. I always like to mix things up in my daily clothing choices. I love how the ruffle on the top is balanced by the roughness of the patches and raw hem of the pants. And of course I added a pair of gold flats from my gold shoe collection. There's never a time when gold shoes don't work. 

When in doubt, add some gold!

This look was perfect for running errands and playing with the babe at the park. Stylish but functional. I'm all for a stylish and comfortable option over leggings and a t-shirt any day.
