Hi guys! Happy Friday! It’s crazy rainy here in SoCal, so I am just trying not to get washed away. We usually get rain only a few times a year (not kidding), but this Winter has been insane for us. Apparently this storm that is here today will be bringing 4 inches of rain! How does one even attempt to be cute for the weekend in that?!! Ugh, I can’t!! Spring needs to get here stat.
Today I am actually discussing one of my most fave trends for the upcoming season, ruffled statement blouses. They are already everywhere and are just SO much fun. One of my go-to looks is a simple denim skirt or pair of shorts with a top in the Spring/Summer, so I am in love with this trend as it really steps up this look. I found this top, by Clu, and just fell in love with the way it feels like a modern take on a simple white button down. The cut out on the shoulder mixed with the ruffle detailing is just way way too much fun.
I paired it with this dark wash denim skirt from GRLFRND. You guys, I have been telling you months now that this brand is the end all, check them out if you haven’t! I have this same skirt in regular denim (from my post with the starry top and otk boots) and it’s a totally easy piece to throw on with everything (here is a similar option too). I love the contrast of super dark/almost black denim and white, its just so good! I added this Saint Laurent belt to kick up the look a bit (cute similar option).
For shoes, I wanted to pull from the silver of the belt, so I went with these faves from Jimmy Choo. Again, I wear these nonstop which I really believe makes them worth the investment. Don’t you have those cheap pumps or heels you bought that you can’t wear because they are so uncomfortable? You will not have that problem with these, hence making them worth it! I got these over 2 years ago and honestly wear them nonstop.
Onto my bag…..eeep!! I got this gorgeous Chanel in Vegas for my birthday and I am truly in love times three! The color alone is so dreamy and it’s just such a fun size. Also, my other Chanels all have gold hardware and this one silver, which I have so been leaning towards lately.
Looking ahead towards Spring and Summer, the statement blouse is definitely going to be a huge trend and one that I think is so super easy to take on. I have picked out a ton below that I am eyeing and that would be such fun additions to any closet. The best part about them all is that they make the look, so you can just wear a simple pair of skinny jeans, a simple pair of black or denim shorts or any simple skirt and have a fab outfit just like that!

I hope you guys have the best weekend! Even though it’s a rainy mess here, we are going out tonight and tomorrow and I am looking forward to some chill time and sleeping in!
Happy Friday, weekend and shopping! xo, Caro
