A blue ruffle blouse anchors a sunny look.
I wore this feminine combo 10 days ago when a summer day soared into the winter doldrums like a comet.
Pale chiffon tiers compliment the sky blue ruffle blouse,
as it mirrors the hue of the horizon.
Imagine a mesh snake wrapping my waist by Whiting and Davis, and you can see my signature anti-formulaic look. Blue ruffled boots, last seen here, are a rich shade of complimentary cobalt blue.
Happiness abounds on this warm day. My smile is bright, but quizzical. Is this weather for real? As wonderful as it feels, this does not bode well for the planet!
My blue ruffle blouse is the only new thing that I am wearing.
Purchased locally, I enjoy wearing this soft shade.
Pictured below is a shot of the blouse and mesh snake belt. Jeweled eyes make this whimsical belt a fun accessory.
Wicker and leather bags are a lifetime favorite of mine. This one is vintage by Ralph Lauren. Keeping this bag strap company are two bracelets that I was thrilled to find in my tiny size!
A light breeze grazed my shoulders and my hair stayed obediently in soft ringlets. When a day feels like magic I stay with that delightful sense as earnestly as possible.
CELEBRATING THIS PERFECT DAY, I WENT FOR A WALK . I PASSED BY GOYARD AND ALWAYS THRILL TO SEE THIS CHIC RAINBOW STACK OF TRUNKS JUST URGING ME TO TRAVEL SOMEWHERE EXOTIC, AND BACK IN TIME AS WELL!
Off to Versace for an edgier look for accessories. Can you imagine which look I prefer?
Tell me what you remember when you had an unexpectedly warm day? Are you a fan of the blue ruffle blouse or are you more of a crisp white short girl? My preference is equal for both ! Enjoy the week and the inevitable ups and downs. As I write, this I am readying my house, and refrigerator, for another winter storm !
Blue ruffle blouse bought locally is sold out, similar here. Tiered silk chiffon skirt was thrifted, similar here . Whiting and Davis snake belt was purchased and at consignment, and a similar one is here . The best place to shop for Edwardian style jewelry is 1stdibs.com , but they are expensive. Also try Ebay and Etsy, great places to shop small!
I love the ruffles on ruffles, Elle. You make it look so feminine and pretty. I’m going to have to try this because it’s so lovely!!
I can totally see you in this soft shade of blue. Have a great day!
The blouse is so lovely! Love the shade of blue!
Thanks so much, I admit I am also
Partial to blue!
Ooh, I love ruffles – this has me missing my blue ruffled blouse that is in my spring/summer collection (still packed away). Thank you for the bright soft colours, Elle! So wonderful.
Quick, go unpack it so we can pretend it is Spring !
That belt is everything!
Thanks so very much! Glad you like it !
Elle you look so amazing in pastels and ruffles. I love it 😍
Thanks so much Tina!
I do love styles that are feminine! Have a great day!
Such a romantic blouse! and the color suits you a lot! xx
Ah, romance..I never thought of that with this look, but it fits!
This ruffle top is so cute! I love the color!
Thanks so very much, I am glad. Have a wonderful week!
Is there something that doesn’t look good on you Elle?
Sweet friend! Yes, boatloads of things!
That outfit is adorable. I love the top.
Thanks beautiful! It would look perfect on YOU !!!
The top is nice by I’m a big time handbag lover and the ones you show here are amazing.
Me too Jackie!
Love these bags, especially the Goyard!
Love the baby blue top!

Thank you very much. It is a favorite color of mine.
Blouse is very good on you. This colour does not do me any favours, but it does to you. Love the belt. I wonder how you put it on. The ranbpw of trunks is a happy site. Wouldn’t mind one of these. Your question about the two bags.. which one would you choose? I don’t know. You have different sides to your character, but I will go with the black one.
I do love this color and I agree it is pretty good with my blonde hair and pale skin. I’m actually still not sure which of the bags I would choose, but would love to have one of the Goyard trunks as a coffee table!
Love the details of this gorgeous blouse! I like a little bit of everything myself when it comes to style.
We are similar in that way Kathrine! Actually, probably in many ways,
Dear Elle, I see you had a really warm day! Honestly, I can’t remember the last unexpected warm day here in Bavaria – I have to admit I’m in general not good in remembering the weather in the past 🙂 Your ruffled blouse is a dream and I so love how you have styled it. And your closet is definitely full of gems as you wore only this new thing xx from Bavaria/Germany, Rena
Elle, this blouse is amazing! SO CHIC!!!
Nice look with amazing blouse!
What a great blouse! I really love the belt too it’s such a unique piece. Have a great day!
Such a lovely blouse. Love ruffles and the soft blue colour makes it such a romantic piece. And your boots is so chic. You look gorgeous.
Oh I think my computer ate my comment 🙁
I was saying what a lovely blouse it was, and how I liked the ruffle top and skirt together, makes for a really nice outfit.
Hope the winter storm weather wasn’t too bad for you, adn things get back to normal soon!

Love the blue of the blouse AND the softly ruffled skirt. Very feminine.
Oh I imagine very well which look you prefer! The decorated one – am I right? 🙂
Adorable, light, airy outfit! I love your wicker purse, so classy, cozy and cute!
Happy International Women’s Day, my dearest Elle!
Oh wow – this is absolutely beautiful! Loving the new blog layout and loving the outfit and accessories – so cute! 🙂
Hope you’re well and hope you’re looking forward to the weekend!
The blouse is so cute and elegant! Love it!
I really like that soft pale blue ruffle top and the delicate yet edgy way the belt goes with it. Nicely done.
Amazing look, love the delicate blue shade and the choice to accessorize it with that elegant snake belt. The contrast between the light blue blouse and the strong, dark blue boots is very elegant and raphined. All your choices reflect your style and personality very well and I can see you with both Versace bags because Versace is a brand made for you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
you can’t go wrong with ruffles! I love love your belt, what a beautiful statement xx
Your blue ruffled blouse is gorgeous, it creates shape very nicely and you look beautiful. I like the way you have accessorised the look also.
You look beautiful!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
That belt is super cute! I love that bag too, perfect for spring!
