Good Morning Friends!
You know I love hunting down affordable boutiques for our #thrivingthrifty page. I came across this shop on Instagram and found this really cute ruffle sweater.
The shop is called Effort and Ease and it’s a smaller shop with a few pieces but this gorgeous ruffle top is only $28 bucks you guys and free shipping for U.S orders. What a great deal for such a cute top!
I wanted to style this top for a variety of women. Over on my instagram, I often get suggestions or requests for outfits. There were a few ladies that work and would love work appropriate outfits as well as casual outfits. So I figured I would dress this outfit up down and for work.
Let’s Get Started:
This is a great option for work, parties, or events. I love the contrast of the light and the dark. The white skirt really compliments the wine color in the top. The texture of the skirt and the texture of the top are enough but not overkill.
For the shoe, I really love how wine and animal print look paired together. I would suggest gold accessories, to me with the animal print gold just suits the outfit better.
That’s the dressed up option.
This is my area of expertise. I love a cute jean and bootie outfit topped off with a cute wide-brimmed hat. That is my love, that is my comfort and that is where I thrive. The wine top is so fun and flirty perfect for a date night out. Wine is such a fun color year round for me.
This hat has been one of the most worn items in my closet and one of the most affordable. You guys if you are looking for a fashion item and can’t afford it…search amazon.
I wanted so badly to purchase a Gigi Pip hat. They are adorable and such a great accessory for your outfits. I contemplated biting the bullet to get one. One night I decided to search Amazon and this hat came up as a sponsored ad. I fell in love with it. Usually, I shop cotton on hats, but this one takes the cake on hats. I probably will one day save up and get a Gigi Pip hat.
