Ruffles + Stripes

Posted on March 1st, by Melanie

This blouse has two of my favorite elements. I love the masculine pinstripe mixed with a super feminine exaggerated ruffle. I have seen many versions of this same top; but this one from Shop Scoobie is extremely affordable and very well made. At $75; it is the perfect statement top on a budget!

Fashion: “Greenery and Ruffles”

Posted on February 21st, by Melanie

Pantone declared “greenery” the color of 2017, and I couldn’t be more happy about it. I love green. Remember my green master bedroom??? Yes, that’s how much I love the color! Especially a really good kelly green.

This fun top by Endless Rose from Halls has everything you could want in a spring top; the must have color of the season, pleats and subtle ruffles and of course the cold shoulder. At only $75, this top is a no brainer!

Scout Style: Cropped Flares

Posted on February 15th, by Melanie

Cropped Flares are here to stay; at least for this season! I got this high waisted pair at J.Crew at the end of winter. I wasn’t sure how I felt at first, but I am really loving it. I think it’s nice to see a new denim style and a way to update our denim wardrobe.

I prefer a style that hits right above the ankle with a slight flare. I think it’s great for Spring with a flat sandal or dressed up with a strappier heel.

For a transitional look I paired it with my favorite Mer-Sea Travel Wrap! Love their new style that has pockets! This also makes a GREAT gift if you are looking for Mother’s Day or graduation ideas.
